Um... cool??

So taking a gander through my list of recent search words that have landed people on my site (none of which were interesting - I can't figure out if that's a good thing or a bad thing), I realized that a heck of a lot of people find my site by searching for all or part of the title of my blog. Yes, it's long. It can be shortened to "Awful Beautiful Life" or just plain ol' HelloHillary. Whatever. I've thought about shortening it, but I like the whole thing and you jsut don't get the same effect with a shortened version.

Anyway. Where was I?

Oh yeah. Search words. Well, it's a line from a Darryl Worley song, hence all the searches for it. I decided to find out how far up or down the Google hierarchy my site fell, so I typed in the full name of my blog. Holy cow! It's number two!

So I tried some variations, experimented, etc. Nothing particular to report, until I decided it would be fun to see what happened when I googled "crazy Hillary."

Number three.

Of aaallllll the internet, when people look for "crazy Hillary" I am the third website they will find.

Super.

*Update:* Go find out what happens when you search for the same thing on Yahoo. Go ahead. I dare you.

Er, so would this be a bad time to point out that Google ranks number two when I search for "awful Hillary"?

[ducks]

And I cant even redeem myself with "beautiful Hillary", because you're right down there at the bottom of the page.

Sorry, I'll go away now.

Queen Bee - I know! I thought that, too!

Paul - ok, that makes me want to cry! Actually, when I googled "awful Hillary" I came up as number ONE!

If it makes you feel any better, I searched crazy hillary on the american yahoo (you did canada) and you're only #8- I guess you're not so crazy in america. We love all your craziness anyways :)

You always thought you were important - now you know you are! And so does everyone else!

I like the title of your blog. You should definitely leave it be. It's perfect!

Paul said...

Er, sorry!

Google seems a bit confused about your identity, because you're #1 when I search for "Sometimes Hillary", or "Almost Hillary".

I have to type my name and at least two words from my blog title to get any hits. :(

I lucked out on my blogging name - After I figured what I wanted and set it all up with a new Gmail and Blogger.com account I Googled the name prying1 and got 3 hits. - One was a mistake from data input. (it should have said. "prying 1/8" but the space was left out. Another was reference to the first and the third was in a non-English language. I would say foreign language but that last thing I need is to get blasted for offending anyone. 'POLITICAL CORRECTNESS RULES") (just kidding) - - -

I dropped by through another site where you had left you comment. - I gotta say I love the pic of you in front of the fence.

I did the Google search for Crazy Hillary and you were number two! You are moving up in the world!

And deservedly so! - Keep on posting!

GBYAY - Paul -
