I found a very disturbing search term on one of my hubs under stats.
A couple years ago I wrote a hub about the kidnapped girl Jaycee Lee Dugard, along with some other local kidnap victims stories.
When I was looking at the stats of how people search (keywords) I found someone had searched these words:
"show me some pictures how little girls are kidnapped".
This just makes me sick. Anyway to track down pervs like this??
It's just horrendous to think someone sick out there is trying to learn how to abduct little girls.
Sick. Just sick.
God, that is scary, Dorsi. I have no idea if you can track this-very dangerous-idiot, but hopefully someone does.
Do you have Analytics set up? If so,there may be more information there. Where are the CyberAngels when you need them?
Oh good they are still around - email them and they may be able to help. http://www.cyberangels.org/
They are an organisation set up to track down pedophiles on the net. I did some of their training courses years ago but never completed them.
Outstanding recommendation Izzy! Pedophiles need to be hunted just like they hunt down their tiny victims. CyberAngels rock!
Like I said I am out of touch, but this organization, an offshoot of the Guardian Angels, used to train volunteers how to hunt down online pedophiles and anyone else who had intentions to harm children.
To become a Cyber Angel, you had to complete a rigorous online training course, and also be able to produce a police certificate stating that you, yourself, were crime free.
I completed something like 70 of their 90 odd courses, but couldn't at that time find the money to pay for the certificate. AND of course their final courses would have been about tracking down IP addresses and such-like.
This must have been about 12 years ago, so I've no idea what direction they have taken since then, or even whether or not they still do this kind of work. I see from looking at their site, child safety online is still tops, so hopefully they will be able to help.
Oh my God, that is so disturbing, I am now going to read your hubs to see what has drawn this evil doer to your hub.
This is just bothering me so much. I am going to contact those cyber angels, and yes I have analytics.
It just sickens me thinking someone has that on there mind and is actively looking for information to do something vile like hurting a kid. I'd love to track this perv down.
I you looked at my search terms you would think I was the sickest person on the planet. Because I am a researcher who studies abusive behavior and also a fiction author whose characters have committed various crimes.
You can't know for sure why anyone searches for anything.
This is true.I thought about that too - what if this is part of a research paper?
And how could I use analytics to know who searched it - or could I even do that?
If I ended up in a perv website then I would know they were up to no good, ya know?
Actually, you're right. It could be cop doing research. Or a psychologist.
Never thought of that, research, I suppose a criminal does not need to search as he/she already knows
Something I wondered about (although I don't think anyone ought to just take this "theory" for granted and write off the "perv theory") was whether it might be someone like a parent who wants to "scare" her kid into not walking alone (or something like that). Some parents with some kids do some things that a lot of others wouldn't think to do.

Hello. I have some questions regarding Google Analytics and Webmaster tools. Any help is greatly appreciated. When I checked my webmaster tools, I saw a lot of URL errors, a 404 crawl error because apparently "Googlebot couldn't crawl this URL because it points to a non-existent page"....

Welcome to Hubpages.I received my first ad click in the first few weeks I was here.The more content I post the more the amount of clicks have increased. I did not start seeing any clicks until I started receiving traffic from search engines.

I have a topic that I researched in Google keyword tool.There were thre columns- Competition,Global Search and Local Search. WhatI realize from reading other hubbers is that traffic and clicks depend on 'evergreen' topics,knowledge, interest,luck,precise keywords for search engines,satisfying needs...
