Ever wonder how people come to find Three Imaginary Girls? I like to geek out over such things, and happily, Google Analytics provides me with all the keyword deets I need.
Some of the search terms were predictable (like, um, "three imaginary girls" as the top hit). And we always see a good number of local bands getting heavily searched upon; this month saw Fleet Foxes (#2) and Grand Archives (#6) both generating lots of buzz, as well as Eric Lashes (#7), Tea Cozies (#19), Cave Singers (#20), Natalie Portman's Shaved Head (#23), Mono in VCF (#26), Chris Walla (#33), The Blakes (#38), Carissa's Wierd (#39), PWRFL Power (#43), and Jenni Potts (#44). The multiple search terms for Sasquatch 2008 were also no surprise.
And then there are the naughties. Somehow we ranked loads of hits for the charming words "fuck photo," "eat my ass," and "hermione's boobs." Our mothers are so proud.
And we always get a few mysteries. Pete Greenberg, we're looking at you, Mister #20. That's a whole lotta searches for one of our favorite bookers. We have a few odd Amy Winehouse related search terms in there at numbers 29 and 40. Not sure why so many people searched those terms so specifically. Ditto goes for "imaginary ditto cocker karaoke."
