Search Terms Are The Windows Into My Reader’s Souls

I recently read a post by Sarah Day, who blogs at Parent Your Business, which talked about the search terms readers had used to find her blog.  This inspired me to look at my analytics and see how the heck unsuspecting Googlers were being lead to Pecked To Death By Chickens.  With a name like Pecked To Death By Chickens, there had to be some material in there for me.  And there was.

Today I am going to play a little game where I match up the actual search terms used by people who found my blog, with the post I think Google (or whatever poor-man’s-Google search engine they were using) thought was a good reason to send them to my site.

Keep in mind that these are ACTUAL SEARCH TERMS people plugged in before they were pointed to my blog
