Search Terms

This was inspired by Clare @ The Literary Omnivore’s Sunday Salon post last week.

One of the reasons I really like blogging on WordPress is their stats page. I love looking through it daily. The search terms section is my favorite. It’s really interesting to see how people come across my blog. About 25% of the terms are Pottermore related, 15 % are The Last Apprentice related, 50% are normal search terms of books I’ve reviewed or other things I’ve discussed on here (a good chunk looks like kids looking for book reports, ha) and the final 10% is where is gets fun. I’m going to share a few of the search terms that make me chuckle.

why aren’t more adults reading books

I don’t really know. Not enough hours in the day? Can’t find books that truly interest them? Too tired to read at the end of the day? There’s no right or wrong answer to this one.

game of thrones kindle ebooks free download

1) I don’t think I’ve ever discussed Game of Thrones here. 2) I’m almost positive any free copy you find is going to be illegal.

Oh how I wish I had the time, memory, and patience to make a list like that. You could just watch the movies with me and I’d point out a good portion of the inaccuracies.

I laughed for quite a while but then I remembered I actually posted a how-to on this. [It’s so delicious and tastes pretty darn close to Starbucks’!]

did shutter island the book come out before the movie?

Yes, the general rule of thumb is the book comes out before the movie. I also highly recommend the book.

Just like in real life, Al Capone was a criminal locked up at Alcatraz.


This was kind of fun. I may do more posts like this in the future. I can’t be the only one who has interesting search terms. Share yours in the comments!

  1. I really enjoyed your list as well as Clare’s! After Clare posted hers, I checked my own terms. They’re so boring! I’m a little jealous of all the weird things you guys end up with. All I’ve learned from my search stats is that lots of people want to know about The Odyssey and Fast Food Nation (for whatever reason) and how Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close ends.
