Do you ever look at the "stats" for your blog ... and then look at the top keywords searched, that brought traffic to your blog?
Should I be concerned that "Hairy Russian Women" was searched for and brought two people to my blog? What does that mean exactly? ha!
Some time back, I wrote two blog posts about my kids (simply because young adults make me laugh, and I thought my blog readers would get a kick out of the stories):
Can You See the Sweat on the Back of My Shirt?
These two posts continue to get a ton of random hits from Google searches every day. Apparently, a LOT of people are interested in both topics ... again ... what does that mean exactly?
And, yet, on a more realistic note, you can use those keyword statistics to help you formulate new posts that might generate new traffic and lead to new followers. For example, over the weekend, a lot of people searched for book reviews of BEFORE I FALL by Lauren Oliver. This brought new traffic to my blog. So, this tells me, that people are actively searching for book reviews. Great validation for reading MORE BOOKS! Yay me. :)
So, while these keyword searches may prompt me to post more book reviews, I can promise you one thing: I will not be prompted to write anything (other than this very post) about hairy Russian women. YIKES!!
What type of posts on your blog continue to get large hits from random Google searches? Does it surprise you?
