What's the creepiest keyword you've seen bringing people to your hubs.
I just had "cancer patients with tramp stamps nude" and it creeped me out.
Interesting. Analytics refuses to tell me anything about my search terms. What's up with that? Am I looking in the wrong menu options? Where did you find it?
Sounds like you dumped all your Scrabble tiles into a hat, drew them out one at a time...and typed the result. That's as good a strategy as anything I have! I am off to dig my dusty old game out of the attic. While I'm up there, I may as well grab the Oiuja Board. Hahaha
This one definitely tops anything on my search list: tubby young girls naked
How do you find out which keywords they're using? I see traffic sources, but not keywords.
I just found "I want to kill my father and my uncles and my aunt." OMIGOSH none of my pages are anything like that. Purely freaked me out!
This led them to my page about (I'm assuming) the Death Card in Tarot. Which is about as removed from their search as we are from planet OGLE-2005-BLG-390Lb. (Allegedly the most distant planet in our Universe.)
OK, the best one I found today was:
can a felon be a massage therapist in texas
I live in Texas. Remind me not to get a massage.
i have itchy bumps on my legs
I also found "my dirty family"
And Laura Ingalls was punished (with quotes around the "was punished" part. I'm torn between wondering if that was some creepy BDSM dream or some psycho looking for an excuse to beat their children. "If it was good for Laura, it's good for you!"
"what is an alcoholic nose" which is bizarre since I write about dog things, and there were 3 of them!
It must be that the dogs with best sense of smell brought these people in on that search term - weird. I never looked that in depth before.
OK, all better.
I was looking under "behavior" sub "site search" sub "search terms".
"Acquisition" was where to go... Alas, all of mine are boring.
These are way creepier than mine. The best I could come up with was "spy my mom".
I had a range of variations of "itchy, weepy spots on bum". I opted not to use that Intel to build a page to meet the needs of those searchers.
"milhouse porn" as in "milhouse" from The Simpsons... On a related note, I think I need to stop using the term "anal retentive" in my articles. Runner up: "sexy grover costume"
I also get a ton of weird (and sometimes terrifying) dog poop/vomit related search terms. This is my personal favorite: "puppy stool is very rubbery and hard to break"
How do you find this stuff out? I'm super curious after shay-marie's reply! Hehe
I use regular Google analytics to see keyword search terms for Hubpages. Google Webmaster Tools is better as it shows more keyword data, but we can't use it for Hubpages as far as I know.
You can use Webmaster Tools with your Hubpages domain. I've had mine set up since I joined.
This would seem to be the weirdest search phrase lately. "ben 10 alien force sex"
I'm just shaking my head here.
Okay weird, but not as creepy as the last one - how to make my dog poop
I don't have any creepy ones or any odd ones really except for this one that baffled me "Why is hedgehog losing fur". Ok then...
Where can you go to see the keywords? And can you add keywords?
The only unusual one I have is "addicted to frozen milk". It goes to my hub on ice cream, so it is not as weird when the context is known.
I use Google Analytics with Hubpages. On your Google Analytics page, click Admin at the top of the page. Below ACCOUNT, click the down arrow, then click Create a New Account. Follow the directions to create the new account. To learn more, read http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/sett … analytics.
Many of you definitely beat me. The creepy one I got was gold digger. lol.
"i don't wear shoes" was on there today. not sure where that relates.

How to put search terms in our blogs and not make it a spam?I want to make my blog to be searchable in the internet like most of us.

Why are no search terms and keywords recording in stats?For the last week or so, there don't seem to be any search terms sources under my stats. I used to find it helpful to know what keywords people are using to find my hubs. Are you having the same problem?

I hope someone can help answer this question for me. I wrote a hub, I picked the keywords very carefully, I wrote my first paragraph very carefully to attract the audience I wanted. I wrote a full header description. I go to see where my hub ended up after a few days and instead of...

Or not? I mean the kewords there are not listed in the keywords I put for the hubs.

And it's right under our very noses. What is it? Stuff that you're interested in!Your hobbies, your work, your experiences... do a bit of keyword research to see how many other people are interested in it and what search terms they're using to find it, then write about it (then rewrite, spell...

Go to stats for your individual hubs and look for any that have 'frequently searched keywords that aren't in the title. Now ADD them to the title. I did this with the 10 or so hubs I could do it for and still I'm getting about 150 more views per day.
