I love the WordPress feature that keeps track of the search engine terms that have led readers to our blogs. Some of them are obvious and you can definitely pinpoint the exact entries you’ve written that came up in the search (and hopefully assisted someone with their query)…but others are just plain entertaining! I have a habit of plugging in as many words as possible into search engines to narrow down the possible hits, so I can only imagine what someone on the receiving end might think of the weird stuff I come up with.
Here are a few of the search terms that have been logged on Flowery Prose within the past year, the ones that got me giggling the most. I really hope something I’ve posted helped these folks out, as well, but I’m not entirely convinced of that….
saskatoon berry alcohol shot
hula hooping sitting on bed
I’m not that flexible…or creative. I might somehow throw out a hip.
what if I eat a spittle bug
No biggie, it’s three percent of your daily recommended intake of protein. And the spittle gives it a smooth mouthfeel.
Is that like Alphagetti noodles? Do you add veggies? I might want that recipe.
prose on parenting
*looks to see if anyone has dropped off any kids at my house and left them there without my knowledge*
I think this was supposed to be “Nose Hill,” one of my favourite places to walk in Calgary. I can’t say I’ve ever written a post about “nose ills,” but if there’s a call for it, I can definitely
make something up oblige.
covering raised veggie bads (sic) at night
I’m glad I’m not the only one who had veggie bads this year – I can’t believe only three of my carrot seeds germinated out of an ENTIRE package. Maybe I would have had more success had I covered them at night. Things to note for next year.
same look like winter cress but not
Occasionally my hair gets this way before I put the anti-frizz cream in.
speak about flower
Ask my hubby; I do, ad nauseum. This may be a search term I’m actually qualified to write about. If not qualified, I can certainly babble endlessly about it. I have also been known to expound at length about flour, as well, but that’s another story….
Check your search terms: do you have any silly or unusual ones you’d like to share?
I am so pleased you enjoyed them!
My search terms were all pretty boring compared to yours! I do, however, get a lot of visitors looking for puns about Canada – which is good, because that is one of my most popular posts!
Puns about Canada – I LOVE it! I will have to look on your blog for that post, puns are totally my thing….
They were giggle-inducing, for sure….
That’s a funny collection, Sheryl and a great idea for a blog post. I’ll have to pay more attention to mine.
Sometimes you really have to wonder why people are looking up these very specific things….
Yes! That’s a whole story unto itself.
Don’t believe I have anything as entertaining as your list. 🙂
I’m not sure how I ended up with such funny ones….
Great post. I wondered why the search terms were often so odd. Will pay more attention in future 🙂
They can be real head-scratchers, that’s for sure….
The search terms are fun but your reactions are inspired! The mouthfeel one made me laugh out loud!
I had such fun writing this post….
Truly bizarre search terms! 😀
Once I started looking at them, I just had to laugh….
Nothing truly entertaining on my list. Thanks for yours 😆 The ‘wintercress hair’ made me chuckle 😂 …and I know it’s a thing! 😜 Thank goodness for anti-frizz cream 😁
Yes, it’s saved me many times! 🙂
You only had 3 carrots…beat ya….I got 6. hehe
LOL and I neglected to mention that my three carrots were each only about three inches long and seriously skinny…I hope we have more success with our carrot crops next year! 🙂
OMG, I love these! I’ve had a few real howlers from time to time in my search terms and now of course I regret that I didn’t document them at the time. (note to self!) I am still wondering how someone accidentally eats a spittle bug…. one assumes that it WAS accidentally and not a “practicing for being on Survivor” thing….
Yes, how does that happen, truly? I do think that there is more to this story, lol….
This is such a fun post, Sheryl, and not just for the search terms. You are such an entertaining writer.
Thanks so much, Laurie, you’re so sweet and I appreciate the compliment!
Very funny! 🙂
I had such a good time compiling this list!
This is so entertaining, Sheryl…and also educational. I have a lot to learn about things like search terms–thanks for the tips!
