Since this is the beginning of a new year – per the Gregorian calendar – I decided it would be interesting to see what were the most common search terms that brought readers to Reflections From A Murky Pond over the course of 2010.
In many ways I’d have to say that the results, while somewhat expected, were rather discouraging.
The Top 25 search terms used during 2010 by people to reach this blog during 2010 were:
|mexican drug war||2,227|
|marisol valles garcia||1,875|
|mexican drug cartels||1,206|
|complete lives system||958|
|jamaican curry powder||480|
|mexico drug war||474|
|hawaii health care failure||363|
|marisol valles garcía||323|
|lower back tattoos||309|
|mexican drug war photos||301|
This matches up well statistically with the fact that the top 2 posts – Support The Arts (NSFW) and Denying Atzlan (NSFW) – respectively accounted for 18,484 and 11,714 of the 152,089 page views that Reflections From A Murky Pond got last year. The blog’s home page accounted for another 28,430 views.
Oh well. I suppose it doesn’t really matter what brings the readers here. What matters is that they read what they find.
