Freaky Visitors


I regularly use an on-line tool that tracks visitors to this blog. Among other things, the site tells me who visited the site using a Google search, and what words they were searching for. Usually it’s pretty boring stuff.

Earlier this morning, someone from Queensland, Australia visited my blog using search results from Google.com.au. His (or her) search? “Bob the Builder in stockings and high heels”. That’s just wrong…

I immediately went to Google and typed in the same search string. To my horror (and amusement), that search brings up 206,000 results, of which my blog is number 10. I’m on the first results page! If you decide to try it yourself, please be advised that some of the other top results will lead you to sites of questionable content.

Let me state unequivocally that I have never written about Bob the Builder, or any other animated character, dressing in drag. Google picks my blog because in March 2007 I wrote separate entries about Bob and the costumes from a Theatre Ashbury production. That’s it, so don’t go digging through the archives looking for weird fantasies involving the stars of TVO Kids.

By the way, if you Google “Murray Perahia in stockings and high heels”, I’m number 1.

  1. Wow, Google is fast. I figured it would take a few days to climb to number 1.

    I’m pretty sure this will come back to haunt me sometime down the road…
