The Lisas can’t help but wonder what people are thinking. Much like the oft maligned Hormel Foods Corporation must have wondered how the conception of email spam would affect the sale of meat products Spam, we put this blog out and often get some unexpected results.
Statistics are like a train wreck – gruesome, but impossible to look away from. (Or is it “from which to look away”?) When we first started blogging, the Lisas would watch hits like some people watch the stock market, that is to say obsessively. Granted, we still like to see big numbers, but so far we haven’t managed to crack the code to going viral, and are therefore no real threat to facebook or twitter. Yet.
We suspect is has something to do with tags. This Lisa currently has a tag in the back of her shirt that is driving her to seek a pair of sharp scissors and go after the manufacturer. Oops, different kind of tags. Keyword tags, are what I’m talking about here. For example, on this post we might use Spam, facebook and twitter as tags. And conception. Which would be a big mistake. In our last post we almost tagged the title Property Virgins. Here’s how we know this would be an unwise choice; the terms people use to find this blog range from humorously wacky to surprisingly disturbing. Granted, we discuss granny-panties with great flourish and frequency, so we’ve generated some of this weirdness upon ourselves.
Here are a couple examples of what people are apparently googling when they wittingly or unwittingly stumble upon us:
- retreat realization and blog
- hang up the telephone
- emma and mr knightley make a baby
- hello my friend very hot here i miss you
- gag order boat name
- please throw rubbish here
- is there symbolic messages to the knuckl
- “big old lisa”
…and most recently: boom chica wowow.
What can we say? When you’re hot, you’re hot. Random wackos and the rest of y’all enjoy your stay here at Lisaland.
