Interesting Search Terms and Shout Outs

By on Jan 4, 2013 in Props | 10 comments


One of the most fascinating things about being a blogger is to see the keywords people use to get to my site. What I find most interesting is that many of search terms have to do with “actual” wallet’s that people keep money in. Perhaps I should start selling wallets? I will have to think about that one. But for the time being, here are my top ten most interesting search terms from 2012:

1. Wallet that gets harder to open as you spend money

2. Do wealthy people have cell phone contracts

3. How much cash does a rich people carry in his wallet

4. Where should wallet be kept in pants

5. Can i buy a product which was kept for selling by myself in ebay

6. Why do people keep money in wallets

7. Trim your festival expenses

8. When a dealer buys a car from the auction, does he have to pay the 9.3% tax?

9. I don’t know how many people have a plan for using their credit cards, let alone a plan for how to pay off their accumulated debt. what do you think? is this something that would even work?

10. Junk mail wallets

Most of these keywords I can figure what post they ended it up at because of the words that I used in writing the post’s. Number 9, however, I have no idea what that related to.

Thank you for sharing this past week. I hope you are having a great start to 2013!


  1. It always surprises me to find out how people get to my site. Most of them are targeted, just like I like, but then you have the random ones where I have no idea how they get there. I hope you have a good weekend Deacon!

    • It is so true, there are a few search terms that came up which I am still not sure how they found me; Terms that I didn’t put up this time around. Thanks for stopping by Grayson, I hope you have a good weekend as well!

  2. If you ever come up with a wallet that gets harder to open as you spend money, you will be set for life! I’m so intrigued by that search I may search myself just to see what comes up haha!! Have a great weekend!

  3. One of my favorite parts of having a blog is getting to see all the search terms. Even tho I get enraged at the bounce rate (How could they leave??? The post had just what they were looking for?!!?) I do enjoy reading the interesting search terms.

    • I know what you mean about being frustrated with the bounce rate. I wonder if putting a link on our blogs that says “If you didn’t find what you were looking for, click here to tell us what you would like to see us to write about.” Curious if they would click it or not… Have a great weekend DC!

  4. Number 9 is such a random search query. I hope you didn’t optimise too hard to get ranked for that one…

    • It is random, for sure. I definitely didn’t spend much time with SEO back then, I am doing a lot more these days. Thanks for stopping by Glen.

  5. I love it. It isn’t “how much money does a rich PERSON carry” but “does a rich PEOPLE carry.” That’s a rich person with multiple personalities….all of which are Scrooge McDuck and are loaded.

  6. I find it incredible at the number of visitors I get through search traffic for terms I am not even targeting. Even greater sometimes are the number of visitors I get for phrases that are misspellings of my article titles and are loaded with incorrect grammar. It makes me go back and make sure I have spelled these write and the sentences read well. They appear to but I do not complain about the traffic. These people tend to have a higher bounce rate but stick around to read that article they were looking for.
