I’m feeling lucky—Google searches gone bad

Call me Fishmeal, but I love looking at visitor logs for JewishJournal.com. That's why I'm The Web Guy.

I check the logs over and over during the day to see what's popular right now, who is linking to us, top key words, etc.

The MOST box* tells you which stories are popular, and the blog box on the home page does the same thing for us bloggers.

But none of them give you the detail I get from the logs. Some of the information I can't share -- we protect the IP numbers (Internet addresses) persuant to our Privacy Policy.

But I do know where visitors come from (which site or search referred them and where they are located geographically) and what they do when they arrive.

What do they think when they read what they've found?

We'll never know, of course, but the vast majority of these drive-by visitors are never seen here again.

This is a bad thing, since I am constantly trying to improve site 'stickiness,' to present JewishJournal.com as a wonderland of webbish wows, a site where every click brings you to something you never knew before. Interesting stuff. Cool stuff. Amazing stuff. I know, it's a journey not a destination. *sigh* A recent sampling of visitors:

LOCATION KEY WORD/REFERRER LANDING PAGE HELLO/GOODBYE
Pompano Beach, Fla nude jewish girl Getty nude buh bye
Clarksville,Tenn bikers run drug trade Set free ministries arrest a dios
Livingston, NJ david goldstein duke Duke Jewish geneticist, African Kohanim shalom
Norway israel sex letters to the editor au revoir
Ottawa, Canada dress code jewish wedding Jewish wedding dress code have a nice day
