I've found that the longer I blog, the more traffic I pull from search engines. And since I discovered this, I've gotten no small amusement from some of the searches that led people to Babbling Brooks.
Here's a sampling from my last 100 hits:
#2 on Google (UK): abthorpe church clock press release
#23 & #24 on Technorati: UAV
#58 on Yahoo: laws for separating from a common-law marriage in ontario
#123 on Google: monchy france
#28 on Google (Cdn francophone): +"michael byers" +conservatives
#25 on Yahoo: bmq blog
#35 on Google Blog Search: sterilization (the post in question references Carolyn Parrish)
#8 on Yahoo: subs in Canadian waters
#10 on Google: canada conservative minimum sentences violent crime
And following are the podium finishers - tied for third place:
#2 on Google: brazillion
#10 on MSN: woman and sexy under ware (the post in question makes reference to my grandmothers, believe it or not)
Runner up for weirdest result:
#31 on MSN: why do hamsters like small cages?
...and my personal favourite, the gold medal winner by a country mile...
#11 on Google (Cdn francophone): "he was masturbating" site:blogspot.com
Riveting content will return at an unspecified future date. You get what you pay for, etc.
Update: Heh. I just discovered that Babbling Brooks currently holds down both the #1 and #2 slots on a Google search for warren kinsella is a douchebag.
I kid you not.
And yes, I'll admit it: I get way more of a kick out of that than I should. Hopefully I can't get sued for simply enjoying the circumstance, but with Colonel Klapp, you never know.
