Things that make you go hmmm


This blog runs on WordPress. WordPress gives me certain data about my blog. I get to see how many people come each day, what posts get the most activity, and who refers people to this site (e.g., if someone puts up a link to me on their own site and then someone clicks it). There is one other interesting piece of data that gives me pause: entries that people type into search engines like Google that result in their clicking a link to this site. Here are some searches that people (I do not know who) search who then decide to come here:

These make sense: “wordpress psychologist”, “Ed Welch”, “Christianity Bi-polar disorder”, “Mindfulness Bible”, “Phil Monroe”

But what should I make of this? “Reformed theology + oral sex”

I guess someone wanted to know whether Calvin thought oral sex was okay. I have to admit I ran the same search in Google just to see why I cam up. And there I was on the first page. I wrote about Reformed and sex (not oral) in a blog posting and voila, Google finds me and puts me up front an center.

There are other doozies in this wordpress data on searches that end up here but I can’t print them here…

  1. Gotta love WordPress! You should install a site meter, too. You can see what cities, states, countries people are from, how long they spend on your site, and what they read while they were there. You’ll be amazed at how many people from various countries read your blog!

  2. How disappointing that none of the “gasp” words show up in your word cloud 😦

  3. The google searches are great, aren’t they?

    I choose not to put pictures of my boys on my site because of some of the searches I get. “cute little boys” and “kids in bathtub.” Ugh.
