On the advice of a super high-speed Posterous blogger, I signed myself up for Google
Analytics on the blog. The numbers I can take or leave with
equanimity, but what has become an endless source of diversion are the
search terms that my readers use to find the blog here. There are a
couple searches for “Anna Karenina” and I got one for “Richard Stark” yesterday, but the best one so far was ‘husband deceived
wife for years.’ What on earth have I written about that on this blog
that would bring my to the attention of that particular query term?
And what a sad phrase to search for; was it the betrayed and bereft
wife who typed it into the box, leaving a wake of bemusement behind?
