We've all got them, so why not share them? The sometimes unorthodox ways that people find your hubs. Non sequiturs, hits on obscure words that you didn't even know were keywords, and the always uplifting hit from people who were looking for porn and were very, very disappointed to find your hub instead.
Give your weird search strings and a general overview of the actual topic of the hub that got the hit.
I've done a series of reviews on the preschool shows playing on the Sprout channel, which runs an evening show hosted by a young Latino lady whose character is named Nina. Needless to say, I've gotten hits from several variations on "nina naked" from no doubt very devoted fathers.
"dehydrated entrails" for a hub about arguing on the Internet.
"i want to use a cucumber on my wife video" for a hub about a chain e-mail about cucumbers.
These aren't all from my hubs, but I've had my eye on amusing search strings for years.
Some of mine have included:
where to buy pet sea slug
how tall was medusa
And thanks to Bing, which often passes only the first word of the query, I was proud to know that people were coming to my articles to learn
or, more humbly,
My hubs haven't gotten too many creative ones yet, but there's:
does a shark have a crop
-- on a hub titled "have crop circles jumped the shark?"
toast your cat
-- on a hub exploring the cat/buttered toast paradox ... eeek!
So far, my pi hub has had nothing untoward. It's only a matter of time though.
I have a somewhat tongue in cheek hub on underarm whitening (it was news to me that women did this, I never give the colour of my armpits a second thought!) and it has been a bit of an education from the keywords that come up on my GA account as to what other parts of the body, internal as well as external, that people will whiten.

Evening, While I cannot complain with my views on Hubpages, I'm at a bad stage with commenting. I just wonder why nobody seems to enjoy my Hubs enough to comment. Are they too long? Do they not appeal to the Hubpages audience?I do try and make them as lively as possible - but I sometimes find even...

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?

In my travels around hub pages, I've seen (and made) spelling errors.I don't really regard this as a mortal sin in need of correction (and I've even been guilty of having some fun with some of these)So - here's something for the serious souls who take hubbers to task for any infraction of...

The past few days I've received a number of comments on several different hubs. These comments have nothing to do with the hub although they are reasonably written. Each is from a different address and none are from hubbers.Only one has caused any real concern, when the poster advised...

How about sharing your weirdest comments? I've had quite a few, some I keep and others I delete.I just deleted one comment that was an entire conversation between several people about a totally unrelated topic. They seemed to be chatting about leg warmers from the 1980's. It must have been cut and...
