Blog stats

Out of pure curiosity, I checked my blog stats today. I didn't expect much in the way of traffic, not with a personal blog like this. However, I did notice some interesting things.

Most of my traffic coming from linked sites was expected, spawning from places like meetup.com, facebook, livejournal, etc. Several come from google, twitter, and some site I have no clue what it is, and it doesn't open anything up when I try to access it.

Most of my audience uses Microsoft. Thats ok, I don't like Macs either. 73% use Internet Explorer. Seriously people, switch to Chrome. Drink that Google cool-aid. It tastes yummy! Expectedly, my audience is mostly from the US, however, Hungary and Taiwan come in second at 12 hits each.

There are two keyword searches listed and honestly I am baffled. Here they are:
"now hnue motane" and "kefir grains el paso".

I can understand the kefir grains...maybe I've mentioned El Paso before? The other one I am at a loss. Other than my friend Hnue being a celeb star personality in her own right, I don't understand the combination of the search. If anyone would like to enlighten me, that would be superb.

Those of you with blogs, what do your stats look like?

Most of my readers use firefox, come from the US (Canada pretty high up there), and hands down, most of my google traffic wants to read about snaring snowshoe hares.

I think the weirdest search term I have is "bears of the future" I can only assume they mean CYBERBEAR. RAAAAAWR!

Bears of the future? Hmmm...Do you remember that SNL sketch, "Bear City"?

My blog is mostly read on Firefox from Mac drones. What can I say, Steve Jobs is ultra-creepy, but I love his products.

A lot of the search terms link up with photos I've taken. Nothing too weird.
