Of Speaker Wire, Hot Dogs and Other Important Matters

Having no desire to do any work and having nothing remotely interesting to say, I visited my statistics at Google Webmaster Tools.

Google says the most significant word used here is “post” with the runner-up being “September.”

Google has sent 103 people here in the last month. 16 people came my way from a Google search for “rather than.” Another 12 wanted to know how to strip speaker wire.

Indeed, Google sends people here for all manner of important questions. Can you buy beer in Georgia on Sundays? How about in Texas? What’s the best way to reheat pizza?

I’m a big source of hot dog information. Skinless, natural casings, how to make onion sauce, ketchup do’s and don’ts (answer: never on a hot dog), wieners in Chicago.

16 people have subscriptions for the blog using Google products. Thank you, each and every one of you.

In the last month misguided surfers found their way here from Iran, Bulgaria, Slovenia and Vietnam.

You’ll note I’ve added a new banner over on the right touting my status as a repository of obscure knowledge. I’ll do my best to live up to the responsibility of being #1.

Ah, Dave -I think your blog is a repository of a whole lot more information than those things you mentioned in this post. Always something of interest to read!

Have to say I'd read you for the info on where (and when) to buy beer. Important stuff!

Every single day I get people coming to my blog looking to find out what a pinata is. I posted a rather edgy cartoon on the subject in September 2007. The saddest thing about it, from my standpoint (as the aspiring writer-humorist-pundit), was that there basically no original content in that post, just a reproduction of the cartoon and a link back to that site.

You have five subscribers (including me) on Bloglines.

Oh, and my most popular and enduring search term is some variant of "pimp my Camry". I guess some of those folks will now end up here. :-)
