This one takes the cake!

Posted by Raunak Mahajan on November 4, 2012

One of the several features I enjoy about WP is the “Search Engine Terms” section on the Stats page. This list sometimes pops up the funniest and wierdest search terms one can imagine. And just when I thought I had seen them all, this morning I notice one that takes the cake!


How in the name of God can something like that lead someone to my blog! So I decide to search it myself; lo and behold, Google pops up one of my posts as the very first search result. Holy Macaroni! Damn those Web Crawlers!

So next I decide to Image Search and this is what it revealed:

That’s NOT me! I wonder what the person had in mind when he or she was looking for “Dise Ronak Pakistan Sex”. Any ideas? Those who know me well are aware of my deep love for Pakistan (sarcasm intended). I would rather not come up on search results which have anything to do with Pakistan. I have been the random extra check on several American Airport queues and I do not intend to be tagged for life by the TSA!

I didn’t repeat the action with “Safe Search Off”, scared of what unknown dark secret it may reveal. You guys are free to do that 🙂 Happy Sunday!

    I had something similar happen with my old blog. I don’t think I ever figured that out.

    I have thought about that, too. But what I hate is when WP indicates that there are values in Search Terms but still can’t display them. Nothing for me to search on… That said, I can understand your chagrin. Hope one of your followers can clue you in!!

    I’ve gotten worse, but at least I understood what they were searching for.

  6. inspired by your post, I googled our top hit from our “search engine terms” page (“hanging chad how i met your mother”), and after 20 pages of hits without stumbling across our blog, I decided to go back to homework. I think you’re brave to google yours, I wouldn’t have done so!

    I’m new to WordPress, so I too have found this feature rather fascinating. I wonder about each person behind the searches! and also the referred links. I don’t have a Facebook, so I keep wondering how in the world people are getting linked to my blog via Facebook? Creepy.

  8. If you ever said something about anything, those spiders caught you, and now you’re tagged forever!
