Fun with Search Engines

I've seen a lot of bloggers have a bit of fun looking at what google searches bring people to their site, so I thought I'd see how some people end up on my blog:

1. How to prime a lawn mower

Ah yes, my infamous thoughts on lawn mowing!

2. Camping indoors

Quick tip for this person...if you're indoors, you're not camping!!

3. I'm pulling as hard as I can to start the mower and it's doing nothing

I'm right there with ya sister, obviously these damn things were designed by men or they'd come with a key - and a cup holder.

4. Is it ok to wash down a lawn mower?

Hmmm...I don't know - why the hell would you want to wash a lawn mower? It's just going to get dirty again the next time you use it. That seems futile.

5. My sink is leaking

Mine too. It sucks doesn't it?

6. Sitting in the grass to pee

My opinion? Not a good idea. In the end, my bet would be that your butt would be covered in both grass and pee...not a good combo. By the way, are you related to this kid? Cause that was gross.

7. Hootchy Cootchy dance midi

HA! Okay, other than my laughter that someone is looking for that song, midi format? Really?

8. Turkey in straw donut

Hmmm...interesting. 2 things I've never seen...a straw donut, and a turkey IN a straw donut.

9. Using a flashlight while pregnant

Yes, I may be going out on a limb here, but I'm gonna say it's OK to use a flashlight while pregnant.

10. What time of year is fall?

Tough's fall. Or some like to call it autumn.

11. Why don't everyone do sports?

Well, my grammar-challenged young friend, some of us like to read or engage in other intellectually stimulating activities. But I think you should stick to sports.

12. Wimpy lawn service

So let me get this straight, you're looking for a wimpy lawn service? How does that conversation go?

Lawn service: "Thank you for calling Wimps R Us. How can I help you?
Customer: "Yes, I'm looking to have my lawn mowed by scrawny, malnourished wimps. Do you have anyone like that?"
Lawn service: "You've called the right place! All of our mowers are certified wimps."
Customer: "Great! When can you come out?"

Well, from what I've seen from these google searches, my blog is the foremost expert on lawn mowing. All your lawn mowing questions (especially those having to do with priming) can be answered here!!! There were several other searches on lawn mowing I didn't put up there because it was starting to get boring. I had no idea one simple post on my lawn mowing thoughts could make such an impact on my site traffic!! I should talk about lawn mowing more often! Apparently that's what everyone is interested in. :P

Confession: I have never in my life used a push mower. I learned to mow on a nice red riding mower, which my brothers and I fought over because it was almost like driving a car... or at least as close as a 10-year-old gets. A few years later it got demoted in favor of the tractor (something like this: So I can drive that tractor any day, but I haven't the slightest idea how to operate our little push mower. And I was always a spiral-inward kind of girl.

Wow, I'm impressed, that's a big tractor!! I bet there is not string to pull on that baby!

you should use google analytics to see where these people are... did you know you have a loyal reader in Germany... oh wait.. South Africa... i mean.. Australia?

Just Me said...

Yup, that's what I use!

Nope, tractors have keys -- thank goodness! And so do riding mowers. Aaron laughed at me when I asked him about this "priming" thing you have to do with push mowers. Hmph.
