How people find my website
April 4th, 2012
One of the interesting things about having a website is looking at the admin pages behind what everyone else sees.
These pages tell me how many hits there have been, and what people have looked at – though they don’t tell me who you are. 🙂 One of the things I like to check is the search engine terms that people have used to find me. It’s usually something obvious like ‘lian tanner’ or ‘when will path of beasts be published’ or ‘the keepers trilogy’.
But sometimes it’s a bit strange. Like yesterday. Someone searched for ‘bedroom smells like a corpse’. And whose website did they find, at the top of the search list? Mine! (Try it and see.) All because of this post about finding a dead mouse in the spare room.
I can’t help wondering why that person was searching, though …
Lian Tanner has been dynamited while scuba diving and arrested while busking. She once spent a week in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, hunting for a Japanese soldier left over from the Second World War. Nowadays she lives by the beach in southern Tasmania with a large fluffy tomcat called Harry-le-beau.More about Lian
