5 Weird Ways People Have Found My Blog

I like to check the stats for my website every now and then.

Besides checking where my visitors are from, checking how they found my blog is one of the most interesting stats.

Here are a few weird search terms that have been used on different search engines, and that have sent people to my webpage.



5. “amazon”

Apparently, WordPress does not always get all the info that they need from the search engines in order to give 100% accurate info to its users.

When the search term stats reports a hit from the search “amazon”, there was most likely more to that search than was reported, with “amazon” simply being part of the search.

So these were most likely searches for products to buy, that sent the searcher to me as a result of me writing about those products.

I also have 440 hits from search terms marked as “Unknown Search Terms”, again as a result of WordPress not having access to 100% of search term information.


4. “arthur webley dead”

I shared a clip from the comedy Hot Fuzz (the best movie ever) a while back.

The clip was about a character named Arthur Webley, and his impossible to understand “Queen’s English”, so I titled the post Arthur Webley’s English.

Then J.W. Martin mentioned the related film ‘Shaun of the Dead’ in the comments.


I don’t know if the person who searched for this knew someone named Arthur Webley, or if there is someone famous somewhere that is named that.

Either way, they must have been pretty confused when they found that video.


3. “does oslo snow alll the time”

This question led someone to this post about when I visited Oslo last winter.

This person found my blog just before summer, so they must have been packing for their holiday.

And the answer is “no”, it only snows in the winter.


2. “russ1968 video sex com”

The 60s-70s sexploitation-film director Russ Meyer, mainly known for Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, had two films released in 1968 – Finders Keepers, Lovers Weepers! and Vixen!

Someone probably searched for a way to watch those films online, but instead they found a blog-post about a traditional Norwegian “Russ” graduation celebration.

At least I hope that is the case, and not some Norwegian old-timer looking for smut from their college days.


1. “rudolph the reindeer on a meat hook”

It is quite understandable that someone found my Rudolph The Red Roast Reindeer Recipe with that search, and by searching “how to roast rudolph”.

But it is still a pretty gruesome thing to search for, and I doubt that my post was enough to satisfy the searcher’s weird bloodlust.


Still, I am more worried about the person who found that post by searching “email ru;oph reindeer”.

I may have scarred someone for life..


My favorite ‘Flight of the Conchords’ songs

I first discovered “the 4th most popular folk comedy duo in New Zealand” through listening to their first studio album on repeat with a friend while we were having a long drive to a cabin trip in 2010.

I later discovered their HBO Television series, and later still, their earlier BBC radio series.


With their HBO live London concert special recently having been released, I decided to make this post, hopefully introducing yet more people to this amazingly funny band.

Here goes!



Robots (The Humans are Dead)

I have always been a big fan of science fiction, so I was pretty predisposed to liking this song.

It is also just very funny.


Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros

Rap and hip-hop are clearly not their main musical influences, but they manage to use the styles to great comedic effect in this song.


Tears of a Rapper

While they may not be rappers, don’t say it to their face.

It hurts their feelings when you say they’re not rappers!


I’m Not Crying

They’re not cying…

It’s just been raining….on their face..


The Most Beautiful Girl (In The Room)

This is an overly specific love song, and a great example of the band’s comedic stylings.


Feel Inside (and stuff like that)

This is one is quite different.

It was made for the New Zealand children’s health research charity Cure Kids, and features many well-known New Zealand singers.

Most interestingly, the lyrics of the song was made mainly by cherry-picking funny answers from the interview with various children that you can see in the middle of that video.


Frodo, Don’t Wear The Ring

Bret McKenzie is actually in the first ‘Lord of the Rings’ film, as the Elven escort Lindir Figwit, later to return in the third film in the series, and in the first Hobbit movie.

And Jemaine Clement voiced Sauron in The Lego Batman Movie!


Inner City Pressure

This series was one of the first things me and my girlfriend bonded over, as we were both big fans when we met.

That fact did a lot to smooth things over after The Comedy Song Debacle.


Issues (Think About It)

Someone needs to tackle the big issues, might as well be FotC.


You Don’t Have To Be A Prostitute

My girlfriend told me early in our relationship that I look a lot like Bret.

Nobody else has been able to see it, but I’ll take the compliment.


Carol Brown

This song is incredibly good, on both a musical and comedic level.

I did not number these, as that would have taken forever to decide upon, but this would have been near the top if I had.


Mutha Uckers

This song would have been very lewd, if not for the fact that the guys are continually censoring themselves as they are singing the song.

Very clever idea for a gag.


A Kiss is Not a Contract

…but it’s very nice.


We’re Both In Love With A Sexy Lady

I just like the beats and jokes in this very much.

I often get it as an earworm, and I don’t mind at all.


Rambling Through The Avenues Of Time

Just a short and sweet one to close us out.


I hope you have enjoyed this, and maybe found a new favorite.

If you liked it, you should check out their show, as it is amazing!


Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas, and a happy new year to you all!

I would like to gift you a bunch of links to Christmas and New Year’s Eve related posts I have made in the past.

Enjoy 🙂
