Looking for porn in all the wrong places
Sometime last year, DesiPundit ran a summary of a blogger's Greatest Attempted Hits. Most bloggers track USPs and referrals via something like Sitemeter; this guy (sorry, I can't remember his name) had listed the Top 20 Search Requests that had resulted in his page.
In other words, What People Were Really Looking For when they landed on his blog.
This week, I had some really interesting ones. I have taken out the weird machine-code between the keywords.
It's always gratifying when people look for "sirensongs" or "feringhee" or one of my other signature keywords. Heck, believe it or not, more than a few people even Google "Indologist at large."
I'm also pleased to see a number of people looking for Indian and related travel advice:
"sudder street"calcutta backpacker accomodation
"dried foods ladakh"
"types of amoebas"
"bhutan altitude sickness death"
"meaning of teertha"
Or even names of my specific blogs or photos:
As usual, there are a few people looking for
"hot indian girls"
--who isn't? ;-)
Since I went to visit Ram Bomjom the "Buddha boy" a couple years ago, there are always requests for
"buddha boy" nepal
"mystic buddha boy meta"
Some appear very random indeed, and a bit confused:
"Gandhi Seven Habits"
But then there are more unusual requests, for
"what goddess of sri lanka believe in"
"love yourself in tibet alphabet"
and this week's favourite:
"uncut nepali men"
