I know, I am making 2 blog posts within the span of an hour, this is too fast too furious, but… like Princess Ribbon said, my blog, my sukak lah, 你吹得我涨咩 lei chui duck ngor jiong meh? I’ll do whatever I want with my blog 😉
Actually I was going to schedule this post for Wednesday, but I accidentally hit Publish before setting the schedule, and I am too lazy to take it down.
I would occasionally get some stray traffic from Google search. Not that I am complaining, any traffic to my blog is good traffic, right? Last week though, I am seeing a concentrated search engine traffic from a few specific phrases. When I say concentrated, I mean something like 10 in a week rather than 100 in a day. With WordPress, I am able to track what kind of search phrases people use that made them end up on my blog.
The curious me began to search some of these phrases on my browser. It would make my day if I am able to see them in the first few pages of Google search. After all, I am a relatively new blogger, as far as being active is concerned.
Let’s face it, humans are narcissistic by nature. We take great pleasure when we look good in other people’s eyes. We enjoy it immensely when we get proof of other people’s acknowledgment. We can justify whichever way we want, but the fact remains. Don’t tell me you don’t feel even a tiny bit of pleasure when you see comments and Facebook Likes on what you share in social media. And for a blogger, one of the biggest source of narcissism is seeing our blog posts appear in Page 1 of Google Search. Agree?
I did not make this post purely out of narcissism though. You did notice my blog title, didn’t you? Now go back to the first picture and check out those search phrases. Notice one phrase sticking out like a sore thumb?
I got a total of 8 visits from Google via this search phrase, over the span of 3 days. Somewhere in the world, there is someone who is searching for Dai Gar Cantonese. And he has been searching the web for 3 days.
Whatever the f**k is Dai Gar Cantonese? What does it mean? Why would people search that?? This is baffling me more than it is making my day 🙄
