1940s Google Searches

And now for something completely different…. in my day job I’m rather a stats geek. It’s not surprising that this carries over to my WordPress Blog….

Google seems to love the 1940s Experiment and around 300-500 of the 2 to 4 thousand daily visits comes from search engines. It seems the 1940s and wartime recipes are more popular than one would have thought!

For anyone else who is part retro and part stats geek like me… enjoy. Here is what people were looking for today when they clicked through to my site…

  1. Can’t speak geek, sorry. I wonder if the National Curriculum has kicked into WW2 mode recently? I wonder if the current financial spot of bother has people wondering how Granny coped? I wonder if I can remember any leet?!

    • It may have done! I get the odd young student pop up and ask questions and I think you are spot on with the economy and personal finances…. xxx

  2. I don’t speak geek either, but I always find it interesting when I check to see where my blog readers have come from. There are some very interesting searches you listed. Porno 1940. Really? LOL I did a search out of curiosity to see how far down the list your blog would have shown up and after 12 pages I gave up. If that is what they were looking for I wonder what kind of ‘experiment’ they thought you were doing when they clicked on your link!

    • Haha Marina- I hadn’t spotted that one!

      I’m glad my website wasn’t listed on the first page of Google results for 1940s Porno! The good news is it’s where it should be for the search terms WW2 recipes and wartime recipes and that’s normally in the first 4 or 5 top returned results on the 1st page!

      Do you find locations interesting too? It’s fun to see where in the world your readers come from!

      C xxx

  3. Ha ha! When I look at my blog stats I do get some far away locations. I have one reader in Taiwan and a few in Russia. It has been a while since I posted on the blog though, life got the better of me when i started homeschoolling, so the poor blog has been neglected. Better it than the kids though I guess!
