Search terminology: Sorry, but I am no Carrie Prejean
Here at True/Slant, we can see where our traffic comes from. There are often some very funny search terms that lead people to my posts. I shall start bringing you the funniest ones. Here are today’s top ten traffic sources:
“Kashmir Hill nude.” Thanks to whoever is on the lookout for pictorial indiscretions on my part. Perhaps you were disappointed by the number one result for such a search.
I write more frequently and for a larger audience at Above The Law. So I decided to check out Google Analytics on that site to see what kind of searches involving my name have occurred this month. The results were disturbing.
Here are the top ten searches involving my name that have sent people surfing into Above The Law this month:
To be a woman on the Internet. Nice… Lobster lovers are likely looking for this. (The “beaver shot” is a subject for a future post. But I can assure you that it is a myth. I am no Lindsay Lohan.)
I like “Who is kashmir hill.” An existential question I ask myself occasionally.
The search terms for my male co-editors are less sexual, but still disturbing. For example, my Above The Law editor-in-chief Elie Mystal, who is married, male, and a fellow True/Slanter, attracted this search term traffic:
Elie did go to Harvard. He did work at Debevoise. He did not fail the bar and has not been arrested. But thanks for playing!
Google Analytics gives site owners a little anonymous glance into the minds of those surfing the Web to their sites. Sometimes that glance shows you some disturbing stuff.
I’ll continue to bring you “fun search terms” from the Not-So Private Parts in the future. So watch your Googling!
