Every time I post the words “Colonel Sanders”, site traffic spikes.

March 6, 2012

Every WP site has variety of tools for tracking how people are finding it. One of these tools shows a list of popular search phrases that lead people to the site. I was pleased to see that many people found their way here by searching for “The Boring Lava Fields”. This is slightly flattering, as long I assume they were looking for me, and not the Wikipedia page for the actual Boring lava fields.

The second search phrase that lead people here was the understandable, but slightly strange “colonel sanders poem”.  I can only assume that these people were very disappointed to discover that nowhere on this site is a poem for, or by, Colonel Sanders.

The third, and perhaps most surprising result, was “complex boring texts”. For these people I have only questions: Exactly what were you trying to find? Did my site meet your expectations? If it didn’t, did you feel it was most lacking in complexity, boringness, or text?

And that brings us to this weeks other post, which possesses at least two of those characteristics and explores some history in the philosophy of language. You can find it here.

    I always think you’re going to start talking about Dan when I see “Colonel Sanders”.

    maybe the last group were performance artists and they were looking for some block texts to perform art to or with.
