How did these people end up on my site?

Posted by on Wednesday, 15 February, 2006

Well I may be shooting myself in the foot by posting this, but I went through my stats today (I use the wonderful BAStats plugin for WordPress) and just for fun I checked all referring pages since I enabled the stats.

I found some puzzling entries at the end of the list, let me tell you that!! I wonder, how (and why) on earth these people ended up on my site. Here are some of the more obscure search terms:

“death + sword” (an image search… dude, I don’t even know what you were looking for)
“my japan trip june 2005” (huh? It looks like someone’s vanity search, but why click on someone else’s page?)
“videos de michael jackson en japan” (nope… no videos of Michael Jackson here!!)
“death” (another image search…probably the same guy as above! Get some help, please!)
“japan av movie” (What? In no way do I have anything adult-related here! I’m appalled!)
“How to tie Geisha hair” (And again I am completely dumbfounded. Yes there is one mention of Geisha, but that’s it.)
“why am I a failure?” (The answer is not here, my friend.)
“outrageous stuff” (Should I be flattered?)
“japan nail design” (And again… Whaaaat?)
“johan models” (Hmmm… What in God’s name was the person doing this search trying to find?)
“extreme hair groth” (Well, there’s nothing extreme about my hair. Myabe you’re looking for my brother?)
“Talk to the hand” (Ok, fine, but first: why my hand?)
“japan hand job” (That’s just inappropriate search behavior dude.)

Wow… Some interesting stuff going on, wouldn’t you say? By the way, I would like to give a shout out to the top three referrers of all time (well, since October really, since that was when I installed BAStats):

This just might be the best blonde joke ever

Posted by on Monday, 30 January, 2006

I usually don’t just repost fun stuff I found on the Internet on this blog, but this joke I found over at Herro Flom Japan might just be the best blonde joke ever! I’m sorry if you’ve already seen, because it’s been doing the e-mail rounds for a while now… But it’s worth it.

I hate tags in cloud format!

Posted by on Friday, 14 October, 2005

Is it only me or does anyone else hate this so-called cloud format which is so popular lately?

Also, I’m getting really sick and tired of the hype surrounding this Web 2.0… The web is the web is the web. Or, a rose by any other name is still a rose, etc.

Grumpy signing off….. 😉
