The Stats Game

So I was trolling around our fancy web site stats page this afternoon. I will admit that I am fascinated by these things. It's kind of fun to generate all kinds of reports and figure out who's reading our site, how often they're reading it, and where they're coming from.

For example, though our readers our by far mostly from the United States, we have had more that 8,000 views from France so far this year. (Merci!) This is followed up by China and the United Kingdom, with our Canadian neighbors coming in at a disappointing #8.

But by far the most entertaining items to look at on our stats page are the phrases people type into search engines that lead them to our page. Here are some of my favorite phrases people searched for and then used to stumble upon a SmokeLong web page:

"the girl and the snake" (23 visits)
"how long to smoke" (9 visits)
"green monster weed" (12 visits)
"best flash fiction" (20 visits)
"smokelong aquarium" (23 visits)
"steve almond pornography" (13 visits)
"kay sexton glamour model" (4 visits)
"no bras no panties" (4 visits)
"men in hot tubs" (4)
"hot fat mom tub" (4)
"fat guys in a tub" (4)
"taco foot" (3)
"ellen parker clothes" (2)
"sweater nipples" (2)

I'm guessing that some of these people did not really find what they were looking for, but I guess you never know. :-)

A place to be seen...

In a promise
there's the
light that
always remains
like a delicate
leaf in the
dark of a forest,
and there, in
your eyes, I
see beautiful
skies and a tender
