I just read a very funny post by Emily Heath at Adventuresinbeeland’s Blog about some of the more unusual search terms people used to find her blog in 2012.
A few examples:
‘woodlice droppings’ – 16 times
Urgh. I have failed to find any photos of woodlice droppings on my blog to keep these people happy. My internet research suggests that woodlice droppings are about 1mm in width and look like black dust particles.
‘what do hives look like on adults’ – 6 times
Wrong type of hives.
‘what causes hives under the armpits’ – 2 times
‘honey dripping on body’ – 2 times
Think they wanted a different kind of blog!
‘jon and sarah pie and mash wedding’ – 1 time
Inspired by Emily, I took a look at the search terms people used to find my blog in 2012.
What I realized was that my blog posts can be, well, a bit random. Not always about bees, gardening and cooking with honey.
For instance, I posted about hedgehogs.
I really like hedgehogs. Evidently, so do a lot of other people. Some of the terms used to find it:

are hedgehogs soft
Almost as popular was my post about lightning bugs…

And then there were a few posts about bats and how cute they can be…
