What do people search Google for?

Follow-up to What do people search for? from Autology: John Dale's blog

An interesting additional set of search stats come from Google. and other search engines outside of Warwick. What we can determine here is the number of times that WB pages were requested by someone who did a Google search and got a WB page in their results set.

This data is slightly different from my previous post, because for searches done within WB, it's safe to infer that people really are looking for a particular post within WB, whereas with Google searches, the user probably doesn't care whether the result is WB or somewhere else, it just turns out that WB has some content that they think might be what they're looking for.

What do people search for?

I’ve previously posted about who posts the most and who comments the most. But another interesting set of statistics relates to what people search for when they visit WB. There’s a search box on the home page on the left-hand side, and every blog also has a search box in its left-hand column. What do people type into these search boxes? Here’s the list for this month and last month. Determined readers with good memories can probably figure out why some terms appear in April but not May, and easily shocked readers will no doubt be shocked that there’s a steady stream of visitors every month hoping for the salacious scoop on students’ sex lives.

As always, if your appearance on this list bothers you then drop me a note and I’ll remove you.
