Silly me, I don’t know from desperate

emoticonWhen I wrote my latest installment of Search Terms of the Sad and Desperate, I was unaware that the phrase “gym class was never like this” referred to the title of a porn video. Silly me. I didn’t know just how much desperation there was out there.

I noticed this after a suspicious bump in traffic, much of it generated BY THAT EXACT SAME SEARCH PHRASE. Despite my naivety, even I have the powers of deductive reasoning to figure that one out.

(OK, I know about half of you reading are now in the process of searching “gym class was never like this.” I hope you’ll come back to finish the post when you’re done, and are not lost to me forever.)

I was slightly panicked, until I sought the counsel of my husband, who suggested that from now on the titles of all my posts ought to be the titles of porn videos, and the sage advice of my blogging tribe who suggested I relax and enjoy the extra traffic (even though….ewwww!)

But I still felt an explanation was due. Whew, got that off my chest.

I briefly considered searching the titles of all my posts from now on to make sure this doesn’t happen again, but I think that could seriously constrain my creative process. (Ha, ha, my creative process, snort!) Or at least send me into a paralysis from which it will be hard to recover.

Ignorance is bliss, folks.

  1. And now, when I sit across from my husband at the table and he’s endlessly scrolling, I can say STOP reading all the porn. He may just be on your blog.

  3. LOL< I did a review for YAS Yoga awhile ago and since then the search term YAS Mommy kept coming up so I searched it and apparently its a porn site, so I know what you mean about the traffic increase!! Although I feel a little creeped about by that extra traffic!!

    • I was creeped out, too, but apparently I was the only one. It’s sure boosting my international traffic! Porn, the universal language…

  4. OOPS!! Having a blog that I also use for my writing career, I’ve been amazed at some of the search engine results! I’m trying very hard to keep my fingers from Googling! LOL

    You do realize this post may have created an issue of women who want to read your posts viewing porn, right? 😉

  7. “Fun” facts: When I searched the gym class phrase through Swagbucks, you were the first to come up! (No pun intended) On Google, you were #10. I couldn’t go through with trying to find the actual video, though. I panicked and cleared my search history! 😉
