Statistics roundup Sunday

I'm not going to lie, I love looking at my statistics.

Where people click the link that brings them here, what search terms people use, how long they stay, where they are, etc. It's all really neat and interesting to me. Sometimes it even gives me post ideas! After all, it's good to give people what they want!



Most recently, "Mean Doberman" has brought them to this post: Mean Doberman and also How to Make a Doberman Mean. I cannot comment on whether I feel these readers have learned from these posts in the way I hoped they would; granted, I also cannot comment on their intentions.

"Angry Doberman" brings one to Breed Prejudices: They Always Surprise Me and also Subversive Sunday: Doberman Breed Acceptance. "Doberman Love" also brings one to Subversive Sunday.

Lately, "Canine members of the armed forces act" has brought people to Support S.2134 Canine Members of the Armed Forces Act. And others have been searching "Kevin Reese and Grek", which brings them to Military Working Dogs, as the picture of the Lab and his handler are apparently Kevin Reese and Grek, from 2007. One wonders if Grek was retired and adopted by Reese, as recently Cpl. Megan Leavey was able to do with Sgt. Rex, or if there were other circumstances. With the Canine Members of the Armed Forces Act going up, Military Working Dogs seem to be getting a lot of attention. Which is good.

To close on a lighter note, "no bake dog treats" brings visitors to Tasty Tuesday: No Bake Peanut Butter Dog Treats.

  1. I love looking at the stats, though sometimes, the search terms that come up are pretty out there. Dog teeth and Cow butts are two of the most common that lead to my blog.

    1. I've gotten dog teeth before as well!

      Apparently there's also a park someplace that's named "Elka".

  2. I check mine often too. I get "ugly poodle" a lot. Two words I would *never* put together.

    1. Thanks for following, much appreciated!

      Sometimes they make me laugh. Apparently somebody searched "pitbull pizza" today and got here. It's a mystery!

  5. You gotta watch those stats. They can be scary. I once got a bunch of traffic from the search phrase "people have sex with their dogs." Yucko.

    1. Ugh, yeah. I have the post titled "party naked", talking about collar vs. no collar. That one gets some interesting hits sometimes....

  6. OMG, sometimes I amazed at how some people find our blog! Somebody once was searching for bears in your yard!

  7. Lol, I think there are a lot of stat junkies here :-)

    One I found interesting was when I had 144 hits from Israel in one day - a one time event - that made me wonder if a teacher had given students an assignment to find a picture or information that had led them to my blog...

    1. Oh, how funny!

      I like looking at country of origin as well. For some reason, Blogger's stats and StatCounter's stats do not tend to reflect the same countries (or the same numbers.....). Very strange.
