What are Olympic viewers concerned about?

Let's look at my Site Meter. Here's the image, captured at 7:45 AM CT, ranking the search terms that brought people here:



See?

Now, I know some of this is caused by this comment, which continues a discussion we were having back here about....

If I spell it out, it will seem as if I'm just writing this post to get traffic.

The search for "arches national monument collapse" seems metaphorical in this context.

There's a typo in your link to Blake's comment - #7c651310363610817702 rather than #c7651310363610817702. Just FYI.

I hope I’m not the only regular visitor to Althouse who derives a special thrill from knowing I share something in common with whoever came here after doing a search for “bat testes.”

Oh sure, Simon, go and make a comment that's sure to completely dominate the search terms list and drive out poor Alicia.

I'll help: "Hot #7c651310363610817702"

"#c7651310363610817702 on #c7651310363610817702 pics!"

Please tell me you're not going to explain that, Bissage.

I speculate it's a very poor attempt of phonetic spelling as someone is researching the term "bastiches" from the movie Johnny Dangerously. I've also seen search terms for "Fargo Nice Home."

"Nig...?"

Remember? A child's pajamas in a Hillary Clinton commercial, festooned with the word "good night," were displayed for a few frames in such a way that the letters "nig" were kinda-sorta highlighted. "nig" might by sensible persons be thought to be three letters in "good NIGht," which otherwise appeared on the girl's pajamas, but of course, those three letters also appear at the start of the N word, and Hillary's opponent is black. Utterly absurd mayhem ensued - contributed to, I regret to say, albeit with all due affection and respect - by our hostess.

Sitemeter gives you a sense of accomplishment.

The whole of your self-esteem, and self-worth comes from what Sitemeter says.

Nevermind the large margin-of-error on that thing.

Deep, man, deep.

You have an advanced degree in psychoanalysis or something?

TitussaysHi, How are you? said...

Olympic Tits-I believe that is my small contribution here and for that I am very proud.

Palladian, enough with the pictures.

A girl can only jerk off so many times a day without getting sore.

Those search terms are very amusing. One of the other blogs that I read from time to time, the Munchkin Wrangler, regularly posts a "search term safari" -- the author lists bizarre search terms that led to his sight, with an answer to the searcher's implied question.

I bet you cornered the market on searches for fish taco.

David said...

Ann, are you sure it's not the Pam Anderson ad?

My blog's name happens to be very similar to this foot fetish website featuring middle-aged women. Probably not really safe for work in case that's not obvious.

Lots of people from Europe (especially Germany) end up on my blog accidentally, but they don't appear to linger long.

The Hamm twins could make a fortuune in gay porn if they would be willing to do each other and I think they would.

It is an option they should consider.

rhhardin said...

Althouse has to remember that these are searches that wind up on her page, not searches in general.

XWL said...

While the Hamm twins probably could make bank if they were to 'indulge' each other, I think real loot could be had if you do a celeb-gymnast sextape mash up.

I'm thinking Lohan v Sacramone would melt the internet.

I think it was six months ago I was watching "Touch of Evil" at 3AM and wrote an off-the-wall comment on the shape of Janet Leigh's breasts.

Now about 50% of my hits come from "pointy tits".

[sigh]
