Also: A note to google searchers...

Please, please stop searching for "Sex with sleeping girls". I can only assume that you're looking for porn, but you're finding my site. And I strongly suspect that you're not really going to find what you're looking for here.

I think I've got a much more accurate search for you, if that's the case.

Roy, have I told you lately that I love you?

That is definitely a NSFW link. I'm glad I always hover links and look at the URL in the status bar.

But funny...in a sad way.

Cara said...

HAHAHAHAHAHA.

Okay, I probably shouldn't laugh at that. But I totally did.

Roy said...

Right.
Sorry about that Stupendousness. While the link doesn't show anything explicit, it's probably not a google search you want to do at work.

Hey! I love you too, but I tell you that all the time on Feministing.
Anyway, how do you know what people search for? That's eerie!

I have a sitemeter that gives me all kinds of useful information. One thing that it does is tell me how people got to my site, if they used a link. It tells me what page the link came from. In the case of a google search, your search terms are contained in the page address. So, for example, the last person who came to my site actually came from another google search, which happens to be pretty odious as well. I check my site stats, and it says that the last referral came from: "http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=iraq women pron"

So, yeah- it's pretty handy. It's one of the ways I can tell if someone has linked to one of my posts, and I've found a couple of pretty cool blogs that way.
