A few days ago, I installed a plugin called search meter, to monitor what my visitors are searching for.

I was amazed to see that for the last 7 days, the top search terms were sex related:

I am now confident that I must change something in my blog. It seems that (some) of my visitors (regular or not), are not educated (I’m not talking about school education, but Internet or personal education) in the way I would want my visitors to be.

There’s a long way ahead.

“Prison Break”. I wrote a post some time ago and it seems that Google.Ro is loving it.

Cristian, I thing that everybody has the same “problem”. You know that all the searches are especially after “sex”, no matter what the content of the site is. I don’t have a top of my own, but from my data gathered in time, “sex” is the most used word in searches and i’m pretty sure that this applies to all (blogs, portals, search engines, you name it).

Yeah guys, but still ? So many sex queries ?

Do you think that some of the top searches are done by bots? Especially #1 or maybe even #2. The #2 could be the default text in the bot’s “Search for …” input field, and the geniuses just hit search without entering anything into it.

Searches I hate most: Denisa, Poze cu Denisa manelista, Denisa – Cine sună… arrrgh! At least your visitors are searching for sex, mine just wanna listen to manele. :(

Well, I would be surprised if most of them were searching for other subjects, like geopolitics or philosophy. Sex rules the web, man, sad but true.

I have a webstandards blog and even there, top queries are terms like sex, porn, antonella, etc.

April 25th, 2007

Damn guys.

I think I’ll hardcode a script to ban those that search sex words :)

Lol Cristian’s going to ban most of his readership and the wider internet for kicks!

April 25th, 2007

I would do that, to get away ..

I have been using this plugin for 3-4 month now, and i’m very “satisfied” with the results, although i’m probably talking about a different kind of satisfaction than the people you talked about, Cristian :)

On bookblog.ro at least 75% of the searches are specific book titles which means very much to us.

April 25th, 2007

Now that’s a success story Andrei.

This give a good count of what people are searching for. Such a cloud is quite helpful.

I’ll try this pluging. I’m running a laptop repair related blog and I want to see how many visitors are looking for sex on my website. :)
