Weird. Strange. Unusual. Keywords.
Again this month I have had some great keywords leading people to my blog. Maybe it’s just me being a geek again but this is probably the most fun thing about using Google Analytics, I don’t even check out the other stats like visits, page views etc. I just really have a good time looking through the list of keywords :)
"Suki and Raimi" – This was my absolute favorite search ever! Suki and Raimi are my dogs who I love to death, so seeing that someone actually google searched their names made me feel so happy and slightly proud also – I mean really, what are the odds of those two names being searched for together :P
"What happens if a Lhasa Apso eats 2+ mini Reeses?” – Well Suki is a Lhasa and he eats peanut butter quite a bit with no side effects, however chocolate is poisonous to dogs! A small amount can make a dog throw-up or develop diarrhea. Larger amounts of chocolate can be fatal, so you must contact a veterinarian if your dog has eaten a lot or you are unsure of how much they’ve gotten into. My vet told me that for a 10-20 pound dog, 2-3 normal candy bars can kill. It all depends on your dogs body weight and the amount of cocoa. Also different types of cocoa products contain different levels of poison – just 2 small squares of bakers chocolate can kill a 20 pound dog. Please if you have dogs keep the cocoa products in a place that they cannot get into it.
“Young Hunter Thompson” – It’s probably no secret that Hunter S Thompson is one of my favorite writers, authors, journalists, personalities. I’ve been reading Gonzo recently which is just one of the many biographies that can be found about his life. Most of the books about him focus on his life after he left the military and began writing. Here’s an interesting CBC clip from 1977, when Hunter was 39 years old – not exactly young, but still one of the earliest videos to be found.
“Canadian Zombies” – Zombies in Canada?! That would be cool. And the first thing I’d be doing is logging onto ZombieTools and buying myself a couple of their awesome looking weapons for defeating the undead. I’m particularly fond of their d’Capitan model.
