Feb (2013) analysis of the searches on my blog

dissertation aim and objective
My post Aim and Objectives was very appropriate for the above query because this post had an aim and objective for an undergraduate dissertation.
“google” “image search” “2013” “censor”
My post titled a new Google image was a good hit for this interesting query. It’s interesting because quotes should not be used for single words (e.g. “google”), but it indicates that this searcher has been using advanced searches.
geraldmurphysearch wordpress
This query was a perfect hit for this blog because (i) geraldmurphysearch is in my domain name (receiving a higher ranking), (ii) each of these words (i.e. gerald murphy search) feature throughout this blog (including heading tags, titles etc). For this reason, search engines know that my blog is about these words (term frequency)
multi meta crawlers search engine names
This was a difficult search because I have not published a post about meta crawlers and search engine names. It suggests, however, that search engines know my blog is about search engine technology. This query was related to search engine technology and my blog was a relevant hit.
geraldmurphysearch.wordpress.com
It common for people to enter a URL into a search engine. This search, however, still directs to pages on this blog because each of the terms in my domain (“gerald” “murphy” “search” “wordpress”) feature on other parts of this blog.
ww.bbc.co.uk/privacy/cookies/about/?source_url=/privacy/bbc-cookies-policy.shtml
An earlier post on cookies allowed this blog to be a hit for the BBC URL. This URL was used as a reference on my blog. This highlights that search engines have read each of my posts entirely (from the title/h1 tags to the references at the bottom of each post).
is naver google in south korea statistics 2013
My post on search related statistics was a good match to this search query because I briefly highlighted that Naver, a search engine in South Korea, is no longer the largest search engine in the South Korea.
is bing better than google 2013
search engine “better than google” 2013
why google search is better than bing 2013
is bing better than google
bing is better than google censorship
bing better than google
These three queries lead users’ to the “Is Bing better than Google?” post. The term “2013” is mentioned in the body of the text, unlike the other terms which feature in the title.
The second of these three queries used quotes in their search. Quotes find an exact phrase. This exact phrase was in the title and body of “Is Bing better than Google?” post.
what is google glass?
A post on what Project Glass is was an excellent match for this query.

It is clear that search engines know what this blog is about search engine technology.
