Flatulence seems very popular! And speaking of flatulence, PG is popular too.

Who would be looking for Catigern, I wonder?

Ah! What a Google-giggle-list! Loved it. It's not all dull running a site , is it? I am concerned for those in search of a funeral director getting us, though.

The reason these search phrases are deemed to be important is that one is then meant to tailor one's site to accommodate the searchers' wishes and give them what they want, thereby increasing its popularity and "relevance".

Ok - so who wants to take the last one first and start a topic?

I've been looking into these fugger bags and how they connect to this site, it seems, through Hilary Mantel and Bring up the Bodies (oft spoken of here) and in a bizzare way http://www.newyorker.com/arts/critics/books/2012/05/07/120507crbo_books_wood

And a fugger bag? http://www.zazzle.com/fugger+bags

Temp will be no doubt pleased that one of her threads is the one that shows up when some poor benighted fools enter "wolf hall by phillipa gregory" in their google box!

A lot on the list is understandable from my memory of discussions here, but Tamasin Day Lewis, and twice? Who is she anyway?

Come on own up - someone's led 'em here - so who went to the Quorn Hunt ball in '56, then?

If you want some variety of searchers to linger longer then we must up our game in topic content.

Anyone for Heterae? - I'll start one on that if you like. That seems to attract.

Most of the searches could just about be linked to topics here but - winchcombe glos. nursery school 1940s: kelley o'hara boob grab: tight perm for young lady: stargroves east woodhay/sale?
And since Quorn wasn't produced until 1985, '56 was a bit early to go hunting for it and I can't believe that the pack would run in full cry after a fungus anyway.

And none of is posh enough to be of the Quorn Hunt, I venture. Keeping hunting hacks is a step up from quorn on the cob, ferv.

Indeed P, in my childhood days I used to read about the Quorn and such like, being one of the few tenement children in Glasgow who would avidly follow Pat Smythe and such like, as well as having a regrettable royal obsession. I never quite made it into those circles but my parents had friends, long since, who rode with the Renfrewshire hunt and who let me feed their steeplechasers and ride their old nags.

Pat Smythe must have been very famous. I wasn't a horsey girl (though I did read a few of Jill's pony stories by someone I will need to google. Ah yes, Ruby ferguson) and yet her name is very familiar to me, now that you mention it. Are the horse people of nowadays so well known? Mark Todd is in New Zealand, but that's understandable, but others?

I'm not altogether comfortable with the idea that what I google can be checked out. I am a little careful because of that knowledge - and because I don't want any more pulsating penises staring me in the face, as happened once (though doubtless nothing to do with my googling).

After that, I bet your googling had you goggling though, Caro! But yes, you have to be very careful with the words used when googling thesedays.

There is a serious point about this list however. The overwhelming majority of queries submitted were genuine, if sometimes quite fanciful, historical queries and led people directly to content on our threads here. The implication is clear that the more diverse the topics we discuss here - both as topics opened and in the content of replies - the more such queries will be satisfied and therefore the greater the likelihood of attracting new members.

Just saying ...

So we must 'Up our game.' Useful phrase used on the Baking show contest. I mentioned it to the oven today.

I hope you get a better response, nordmann.

Can we have another "searchers' " list this month, nordmann? That one was revealing.

It is hard to think up areas that they might use to happen on use - ideas that are not off key, that is.

Somehow my website stats page - like it or not - is linked to thi s one now. It told me in glowing red that I had a message here - and one click and I arrived here - and did. So nothing is web sacred is it? The oddist things take people to my site - and for several times.... I might try one as a search myself and see if that tells me anything. On the otherhand, do I really want to know?
