How does this happen???

I’m not nearly as obsessed interested in the search terms that people use to find my blog anymore, but occasionally, I will check out the stats page so handily provided by WordPress just to see what people are looking for.

The weirdest thing is this:  People keep finding one particular two-year-old post simply by searching for “coats.”  Now, it’s a great post, if I do say so myself!  Hehehehe!  It’s a funny story, all about me getting SERIOUSLY humbled by taking a gigantic puffer ski coat across the Atlantic and getting stared at by horrified women in their smart, double-breasted Burberrys, everywhere I went.  But, I have tried on several search engines to just enter the word “coats” and have YET to find a link to that post, even when I’ve totally wasted my time looking into the 20-somethingth-page of results.

OH!  Wait.  I just had a brain blast.  I typed “coats” into Google, and clicked on “Images” and a smart-looking Burberry coat (NOT the one I was wearing) that I used in the post, was the third pic.  Ah ha!

OK.  Nevermind.

Still.  I have no idea why that pic is popping up third in the Google image search.  Bizarro.

  1. gotta love google searches! lol

  2. It is so strange the ways that people find our blogs. Beyond me! Glad you figured out the mystery, I’m a bit obsessed about such things as well. As if it matters but I understand the curiosity/ obsession. 🙂
