Q1 2003 Zeitgeist

by john on April 6, 2003

So Joe Millionaire fans listen up, I’ve found a great resource for buying interesting Joe Millionaire related items including mint condition Playboy magazines featuring former Joe girls. Wow, imagine that!

Check out the Joe Millionaire auctions on Amazon.com!

Now back to our regular program…

Spurred on by Eric Barzeski presenting his monthly referral search terms I’ve decided to do something similar on a quarterly basis, sort of in-between his and the Google Zeitgeist. The data is filtered to exclude traffic coming from my internal network.

Average hits per day: 1,376
Average visitors per day: 215

Q1 2003 Traffic Chart

Those big spikes in February were caused by me being #1 on Google for joe millionaire winner and a host of other Joe related searches. Unfortunately it makes for a rather boring Top 20 list for Q1.

Out of the 1562 unique search terms used to get to my site in Q1, these are some of the most baffling or in some way interesting (to me anyway). You’ve got to wonder about people sometimes.

This stuff never ceases to amuse me. Here are some gems from Google that (mis-)led people to my site:

* Mozilla Sidebar gay
* +traditional +”Greek family” +photos
* hack into playboy site centerfold
* site:blogspot.com gay programmer
* compare raised toilet seat
