I don’t understand why this should be as it is, but here are the top ten searches that bring people to this site (from the WordPress stats page):
|3||the lightning thief||3,565|
|4||doctor who doctors||3,251|
|10||doctor who actors||2,136|
#2 makes perfect sense, given the huge number of sushi photos on The Reinvigorated Programmer, and #4, #6 and #10 make sense in light of the many words I’ve spilled on Doctor Who. #5 (“crunchie”) sneaks in because of the Crunchie-refund saga, which I never thought of as a particularly major part of this site but OK. I suppose #8 (“receipt”) is here for the same reason.
Obviously #7 makes perfect sense, and I am sort of relieved to discover that 2,359 people found this site by searching for its title. And I am rather pleased that “silmarillion” comes in at #9, presumably on the basis of my long-overdue serious attempt at reading it.
But I’m a bit baffled at “the lightning thief” coming in at #3, given that only one of my posts even mentions this title: that is, my brutal (but well deserved) review of the terrible film adaptation.
And what on earth am I to make of the number-one search term, “x-ray”, which apparently brought 6,680 people to the site? I’ve only even mentioned X-rays twice, both of them absolutely fleeting mentions: in Answering 25 tough interview questions, part 3 and Step up to the plate, Mister President. I don’t really understand why either of those pages ever attracted a hit for “x-ray”.
It’s a strange world.
