What are some of the weirdest, strangest things that people have searched for to get to your hubs. Nope, I'm not looking for your keywords or anything... I'm talking about those things that people search that have made you go "wtf!"
I got a funny one just the other day. I almost peed my pants laughing:
"Do naturally thin people like food"
This one likely means they are looking for my hottest hubs, but made me laugh.. pretending it meant they thought I was good looking:
"melbel hubpages hot"
And finally, this one:
"good places to spam your page"
As I have a few hubs I've written on internet chat rooms i've unfortunately got a few strange searches
'Chatting with a young kid in her room' is one that sticks in my mind. Hopefully the police are following that persons internet habits
As someone that has a lot of material on cycling I also had
'Are all cyclists gay' for a hub about cyclists wearing lycra
Strangely, I have also had a few hits for the sexual practice of 'Ballbusting' however none of my hubs are actually about sex, I just use the term in one hub.
I wrote a hub on underarm whitening, because I couldn't believe that people actually did this - but you wouldn't believe some of the other parts of the body some people whiten according to some of the search terms that come up on my GA!
My two favourites so far are...
How much for injury to a testicle?
Pull my todger.
I think this says as much about my hubs as my audience.
ps. As this is a family site I won't say what sort of keywords hit my Gay Animals hub - they're not nice.
Not sure if this is the same person who had search terms on the hub by CyclingFitness -
"what to decorate your bike in christmas stuff homemade"
I have had some search terms that have made me laugh out loud at how they could have up on the hubs that they found in response to their search.
I have come to conclude through observation that whatever search term initially brought the visitor to HP is the search term that will show up on virtually every hub they visit while here.
2uesday, that is a rather bizarre search term however it does actually have some weighting to it.
I have a team mate that has used some christmas tree lights to increase his visibility when cycling at night!
I have a hub on French stereotypes and I got one:
"why do French people smoke"
My first thought, "Why does a person of any nationality smoke?"
I wrote a hub about vegetarian moussaka and one of the search terms was
Healthy meat free moussaka made with beef.
Another hub about growing bay laurel and the search terms were
growing bay laurel in daves (?) garden

I know I should have bookmarked it when I read it the first time, but (wouldn-cha-know) I didn't think I would need it again. Only of course now I do.I've tried running a search through the search box. Isn't there a way to do a more advanced search? I couldn't even find...

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.

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

17 Hubs published and I get about one view per day between all of them? I realize it takes a while to establish yourself but is that normal? Does it pick up over time? All my articles are well over length and get maximum hubber checkmarks? Now, granted, I don't...

I was checking stats on specific hubs to see where traffic is coming from, and it's strange. Is there a change?It's only showing Hubpages views and Google.com... what happened? Will our original stats return? I hope so.And it's not showing Keyword search terms.Excuse this thread if there is...
