When researching a storyline it’s not uncommon to google something peculiar and not in keeping with your day to day life. Baby Number Two is my current WIP and from the title you can already imagine there will be some interesting google searches during its completion. What really fascinates me though (’cause I’m a bit sad like that) is what search terms lead people to The Romaniacs blog. There are of course the sensible ones, but you don’t want to hear about them. I thought I’d share the Top 10 random search terms that have brought people here:
1) Robert Pattinson body hair
Erm… we haven’t stolen it, honest!
2) Young sperm
This was a cleanish search term. Just to let you know – mention sperm on your blog and you get extra hits as a result.
3) What the world needs is a group hug
I’m inclined to agree and I’m very glad when someone was looking for a group hug they found us.
4) This girl said we are kindred souls
One of The Romaniacs? They are so fickle.
5) Sainsburys singles night
I’m itching to add apostrophes. I do want to know more about this. Do they have an allocated time when you all meet in the pizza aisle?
6) grange hill sausage
I don’t even know what to say about this. Just why? And what?
7) is your name yasmin chat up line
I don’t think it was The Romaniacs they were after. Unless… anyone been putting on a husky voice to fund their writing endeavours?
8) should i get spanx or m & s underwear
Good question. Doubt we helped with the answer. Personally, I have M & S suck it all in pants.
9) subliminal messages to get someone to marry you
Hmm… this has to be a girl asking this, right? In which case, boys don’t do subliminal. Make it obvious or it won’t work. Take them shopping and gasp at gorgeous diamond rings when you pass window displays. That should do the trick.
10) just ate big bag of cadbury buttons !!
You are my kind of person. This is exactly the kind of behaviour The Romaniacs encourage.
Of course, I have skipped over some search terms, but judging by the majority, we could set up an agony aunt column answering all the questions that arrive here. Although each answer would involve reading a good book.
What’s the strangest thing you’ve had to look up on the computer? And what strange search terms have you discovered on your blog/website? Any questions that google hasn’t helped with and you want The Romaniacs to tackle?
