Hump Day Holla: The Porn Edition

Peeps, remember how I mentioned that all of a sudden my unique visitors for BGR had surged? Yeah, well I checked my analytics last night, and visitors were up to 67. Wowza!, I thought. Then, I decided to dig a little deeper.

For those of you who are not familiar with blogging, you can sign up for a tool called analytics which allows you to see how many visitors and visits your blog has, along with all kinds of other information such as where people are geographically visiting from, what key words they used to arrive at your blog, if they were "referred" from another blog, etc. I, mean, just all KINDS of information, some of which I don't even care about or remotely understand.

Anyhoodle, I was flipping through some of the information and I see that I have had visitors from Turkey! Japan! Estonia! (yeah, I didn't know where it was either) South Africa! Ireland! Russia! Wowza-Wowza! BGR is international!

Then, I started thinking, "Why are all these people from around the globe interested in BGR?" So, I started digging a little deeper to found out how they found me.

Next, I chose "keywords"--what were people searching who arrived at BGR? "Mature porn." Oh, my! "Mature porn in the garden." My, oh, my! "Mature garden porn." Mercy!

Yes, my gentle readers. Apparently, my garden porn posts are causing quite a sensation across the World Wide Web. The post from July 11 (XXX Garden Porn (For Mature BGR Fans Only) was especially popular, pulling almost 20 visitors!

Well. Indeed. I bet those folks were surprised when they arrived at BGR to find only photos of begonias and hydrangeas rather than sordid goings-on underneath the bushes.

Of course, as I relayed this tale to a friend last night, he said maybe I should start putting the word "porn" in every post title since it seems to drive traffic to BGR. Genius! Of course, those folks seeking lewdness would not be loyal readers, as all of you are. But, in an experiment of sorts, I may try that for a week, just to see how many hits I receive.

On another note, who knew there was a market for true garden porn?? Maybe that is what Bunny's next profession should be--garden pornographer! I know a few photographers. Anyone want to volunteer to be models? ;)

Well, I am off to cook dinner and such. Be good, or be good at it! B.
