One of the many advantages of WordPress is the ShortStat plugin. It produces a very slick and simple display of site statistics in easy-to-read displays that are far superior to my hosting provider’s built-in stats package or anything Pivot ever did. One of the many things it has helped clarify for me are the search terms people are using that bring them here. My favorites so far:

  • “robust pants”
  • “miss me camo pants” (isn’t that the point with all of them?)
  • “lavender vendor machine” (I like that one!)
  • “steve in escrow love punishment” (my personal favorite)
  • “virginia slim 120s, tranny,” however, is easily the winner either of weirdest search term to lead to my blog or harshest way of describing what one needs from the convenience store, ever.

I love ShortStat.
