One of the bits of info I get is if someone found my blog through a search; last night someone in Massachusetts found my Wall-E Review by searching "wall e sushi". From this bit of information it tells me that they were using Google to search and I can even click on a link to bring up the search myself, exactly as they saw it.
Let me tell ya... there are some people who search pretty random stuff and find me. I've had a ton of hits lately from people searching for info on the Subway Chicken Florentine and a ton from people looking for Venus and Jupiter earlier this month. I even had a person find my videos by searching "vagina vagina i want to have sex with your vagina"... that one made me laugh pretty hard! Anyhow, the point is I get lots of hits from random people based on searching... which bring me to my point.
As I mentioned above, I can click on a link and view the search results, I decided to do this with the "wall e sushi" search, because I often times try to figure out what the hell someone may have been looking for to search those words and I also like to see where my blog shows up in the listing; it's neat seeing things I have posted pop up in Google search results! I searched through 25 pages and still didn't see my post! Generally if I am searching for something on Google I stop searching if I don't find it by within the first few pages... this person went beyond 25 pages to find my blog... what is the point? Maybe each computer gets different search results? I was committed to finding where I popped up and got extremely bored with it at 5 pages... bored again at 10 pages... and by the time I made it to 25 I quit.
So my question to you is: how many pages of a search do you spend time looking through? I've made it easy for you with this poll (lurkers, please vote as well!!), but feel free to leave a comment if you have more to say:
[edit: my first poll got screwed up, so if you've already voted, please vote again.. and sorry this poll is so crappy looking, I cannot seems to find one that works how I want it to!!!]
