What brings people here?

My frequent posting schedule? Ha! (I am in fact working on more posts, just slowly. Got a lot on my plate) Here's a funny little aside that I thought I'd share. A little over a month ago I signed up with Google Analytics to see what new stats I could track about blog visitors. Well, the funniest thing ever is seeing what google searches lead people to my site. Here are the best searches in the past month:

\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"bird blog\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"

In reviewing the best searches, I noticed a trend. People seem to enjoy large dead African mammals, but don't seem to know what to do with them. They've repeatedly found my blog using these searches:

dead giraffe
uses for a dead giraffe
rhino meat
rhino meat pictures
where to buy dead rhino meat
what to do with rhino meat
can you eat black rhino meat?

To all of the people who have crossed through my blog using these bizarre searches, I salute you, and I hope you found the answers you were looking for.


  1. I know I've always found plenty of horrible fish photos of cayuga lake here.

    For that, I thank you.

  2. I rather like the poetry of "platypus, wary paradox". And I have to admit that these days, my genes are looking like they'd be a bit loose and baggy.

    If it makes you feel better, I tend to get a lot of hits from people who ran a search including the word "organism", but were actually thinking of a certain other word only two letters off.

  3. I am scared for humanity. "lethal in 8 months i do mean lethal"

  4. Ely - I sincerely hope I never get milked

    Nate - I thought my fish photos were at least OK!

    Christopher - If you change your blog title/focus, I'll probably have to stop reading it at work. (Wait, maybe that'd actually be a benefit to my work productivity??)

    Patrick - Me too.

    I can think off the top of my head which of my posts triggered most of these searches, but not all of them.
