How They Found Us, Cont.

The Fox News Set (proposed by MPS)

I’m amused by the serendipity of what people search for when they find MPS. Here’s today’s searches that brought peeps here:

Yeah, Peggy Noonan’s Mai Tais bring all the boys to the yard.

    Yeah Leviticus seems about right.
    Especially the part about the goats.
    Though Leviticus spells rodeo differently.


  2. Mr DeBakey says:

    People search “Peggy Noonan Drinking”?
    That’s pretty funny.

    Could you explain how this works, TG? How do you know what people search for when they find MPS? I have no idea what this would look like.

      It really looks like what I screen captured. The Internet is largely a point-to-point communication system, and so it is easy for the blogging software to capture where someone came from (and so I know when Crooks and Liars links to MPS, or when Driftglass does, or No More Mr. Nice Blog does). And sometimes, when an internet address is really well known, I can find out when the Sargent-at-Arms of the Senate in the cloakroom of the Senate was visiting us daily during the Chimpy years. Poor bastard! I’m glad we were there to help!

      And when clicks come from a search engine, it is easy for the software to capture what the search was that brought that click to here, hence this screen capture.

      I hope that helps somewhat explain the mystery.

        So when someone searched for “Leviticus,” MPS showed up in the list of hits for Leviticus? That is so weird. “Ivanka female narcissist,” well, that makes sense… That’s really funny! So much for furtive searching. Ha.

        Oh, I suppose over the decade+, we’ve had a few posts on Leviticus-type topics (Happy Hour is certainly an on-going feature and the Blog Against Theocracy was a big factor, I imagine).

        The more people who click on an MPS link for a given search add *authority* for that search topic and it bubbles-up to being a reliable resource. Dsclaimer: Search Engines change their algorithms all the time, so what I used to know way back may not be operative any more.

        I have not myself googled (Google is now the Kleenex of search) Peggy Noonan Drinking, but I have to think MPS must be near the top of the heap!

        There is something very wise that the Internet knows that there is a nexus between Peggington and Leviticus, AND IT IS US!!1!

    I’m sorta upset that the search terms aren’t pornier.
