OK, one last post and then I'm off

I've been meaning to do a post on the search terms that get people here to the ol' ADHD librarian, because there are a lot of seriously fucked up people out there who are being allowed to use Google without professional training or supervision.
Some are obvious,
ADHD is popular
so is
ahdh for some reason.
From there we keep with the theme
adhd + blog + marriage, homosexual and adhd, adhd romance, adhd christian man...
you get the idea if the search is ADHD and goat rapist I'm probably going to get traffic..

There are logical ones which fit some of the topics I've written on.
why did they built the great wall of china or variation on that theme prove my point about how stupid internet users are in this post.
And my Mary Poppins titled rant about my boss must confuse a lot of searchers who want to find things about spoons full of sugar.
jesus underwear is a popular one. That it gets them to my page is less a problem, the problem is why in God's Name (geddit) you'd be searching for that.
Oh and boring searches like rugby league. Stupid leaguies, Union is by far the better game.

bongs that fit in your pocket
is less common and to be honest I have no idea why that gets someone to my site. (remind me, did I do a post where I reviewed travel sized hookahs?)

There are a whole raft of searches along the lines of storytime librarian blogs or librarian career, which is nice and fits in with what I'd like to imagine is my core readership..
Then there are the combinations of my two topics along the lines of, books for adhd boys. I hope I'm some sort of help to those searchers (although I doubt it).

By far the most worrying to me though are those people searching aunties in blouse and photos of aunties blouse. I don't know what they hoped to find here and I hope they didn't find it but there are a lot of them.
Go away you sick Aunty Shagging Perverts. There is no incest related porn on my page.
Although, come to think of it, that's a lot of searchers. Perhaps I could up my traffic with a few (tastefully done) photographs of AILFS.
Don't know that I have a lot to write on the subject though. Any of my Aunty obsessed readers want to suggest something?

I too study this phenomenon. My most common incoming Googles are:

"Can I be a Christian and believe in Aliens?" (because of my post on SETI@Home), and

"Battlestar Galactica dogtags" (with a byline in "fembot Cylons"), because of this

• The usual incoming regarding Family First, the AOG, and Creationism.

The fact that people are unaware that hit count tracking services (StatCounter- highly recommended) report the nature of searches back to us makes for some interesting analysis. For example, there are people that regularly Google my name and, without saying too much, the kinds of search terms they combine it with make it very obvious they are out for incriminating stuff to use against me. Amusing.

I can confirm that ADHD and goat rapist does indeed lead to your page. In fact it was number 1...I wonder why that is ? :P

oddly the google i used to find this site was "gormless twat origin". go figure.

i was hunting for a possible origination of the term as I see a lot of people use it. I tend to wonder if it was a monty python-erism. go figure
