Running a “Hey Lookit This” blog is fun. One of the things that amuses me is trying to figure out what’s hot and what’s not, and occasionally I look at the search engine terms that brought people to Tacky Raccoons in the first place. I might as well share the fun.
In the past year, we got a lot of hits for .gif animations. That’s unsurprising because over time we’ve collected a nice archive. Here are the top ten search engine terms April 2011 – April 2012:
- Capybara (23K+ hits)
- Dancing gif (21K+)
- Possum (13K+)
- 10 (9.5K)
- 11 (3K)
- Animation Fist Pump (3K)
- Science Fair Projects (2K)
- Motivational Poster (2K)
- Babe (2K)
- Woolly Bear Caterpillar (2K)
There are variations to each category, like plurals, additional words, misspellings, etc., so the number of hits are approximate – but those are by far the most popular, with thousands of hits each. Why so many people search for the numbers 10 and 11, and not other numbers is a binary mystery to me.
The rest is a hodgepodge of pure eclectic bizarreness. These are headscratchers, in order of rank:
Meatloaf, Stairs, Chainsaw Bear, Raccoons Killing Cats, Oops, Donut Queen, Slugman, Dwarf Porn, Male Anorexia, Camel Planking, Bunny Poop, Bitch, Mickey Mouse Pants, Amputee Porn, Velcro Microscope, Bubble Butt Animated Gifs, Harold Hamgravy, Body Paint Ass, Aunt Bethany and Nose Harp.
