“SEARCH ENGINE TERMS”

search engineIt’s possible that only bloggers will recognize my title, which refers to one of those activities that takes place behind the scenes, where a b logger can see a daily list of those words or phrases someone has entered into a search engine, usually Google, to find him or herself at my blog. 

Many of these terms are straightforward and relevant.  Luckily for JAZZ LIVES, many people find it by typing in “louis armstrong,” which is as it should be.  But I’ve been collecting the oddities and present several dozen below.  I hope you find them amusing, perplexing, or simply weird. 

“fast waller”     a) an incredibly dextrous stride pianist, or b) a quick jump into the pond?

“art titan-tiger rug”     Who knew that Art Tatum was so famous as a big-game hunter?

“yukalaylee lady liky you”     Phonetic spelling triumphs.

“don’t swat a fly song”     Could it be NEVER SWAT A FLY?  Close enough.

“lapse in training young army officers”     This person found my blog because I had written about Lester Young in the army.

“hot barbara”     This suggests hormonal pursuits, and led the searcher to Barbara Rosene, both sweet and hot.

“hot girls named cangelosi”     More of the same.  The Cangelosi Cards, of course.

“buster keaton cobb salad”     Search me.  Did I write about eating a salad in one of my posts? 

“vince giordano play dates”     Of course I’ve celebrated Maestro Giordano; this search suggests that he’s a pre-schooler looking for fun.

“naughty pickle productions”     I like pickles, and have used “naughty” in this blog, which I hope is productive.  Beyond that . . . ?

More to come on an irregular basis!
