Taking Nominations

If you blog, especially if you operate a lower-traffic site, you probably pay close attention to your referral traffic. I do. The new SCO gets a lot more referral traffic from search engines than the old SCO it's been amusing to see exactly which keywords landed surfers here. Today we had a visitor who keyed "ii need current email contact crazy christians 2005" into the MSN Search.

Those off-the-wall keywords gave me an idea - let's have some fun and hold a context for the most amusing (but clean) search keywords discovered through Site Meters. Please follow my example in the link above where I provide both the keyword text and the link to the search engine page that the visitor used to get to the blog.

That made me laugh. I imagine a husband and a wife having an argument and they query the faithful search engine, Google, to settle their debate.

this post made me change my e-mail address as used on SCO.

I think the dude is trolling for e-mail addresses to spam and thus introduce products to a certain target market.

seems 2b a smart way to go about it.

Well, it's not exactly crazy in terms of a weird combination of words...but as a concept it was quite unexpected:

Even stranger? I'm the third link after the sponsors' links. To me, it's amazing :)
