The Strange Land of Google Analytics

Do any of you use Google Analytics? I use it for both this blog and my Etsy store. I was really obsessed with checking it on a multi-daily basis (even though I'm fairly certain it only updates once ever 24 hours), but now it's more like once a week. I just like to make sure someone somewhere is still looking in on me. Well, today I decided to check it and as I was perusing the tab for my Etsy store, I came across the strangest keyword that has ever been used to access my store. Now, if you use Google Analytics, you know exactly what I'm talking about. If not, in a nutshell, it will tell you what someone searched on the Internet that returned your site as a result, basically. Okay, are you ready for this?

Here it is: "laviejatuntun".

Seriously, people, I cannot make this stuff up. I'm not even sure that's a real word in a foreign language. Maybe it is. Who am I to decide? What do you think?

Oh, I almost forgot! This keyword was at the top of the list, too, because it registered not only once, but twice! Perhaps from the same surfer. I can only hope. I'm pretty sure nothing in my shop has anything to do with whatever this word means.

Care to share your own crazy keywords? I'd love to hear 'em!

In other news: I'm 1/3 of the way through Stephenie Meyer's The Host. I have to say, I've not yet been "gripped." The gal who loaned it to me assures me that I'm getting close to the good stuff. I will stick it through to the end though. Here's hoping!

  1. Oh my... I get some weird stuff. I get a million people who google "Harry Potters Scar" and tons who google "Google Logos". One time I did a post about the hilarious Hilshire Farm ads and now I get people who google "How to make kielbasa" or random junk like that.
