I'm not sure what these people were looking for, but most of them clearly didn't find it on my website.

  • exciting hobbies in toronto
  • arabic frequency codes
  • how to list content alphabetically
  • people who life in bookham (I lived in Bookham after I lived in Cheam.)
  • fund raiser themes
  • what is a medievalist
  • drowning in medieval england
  • popular women s names in japan twelfth century
  • acronyms for sky
  • electroluminescent theme park

The one I was happiest to see, even though I don't say anything about, was "medieval english weather" - for someday I might well put up webpages on the subject.

And I bet you didn't find what you were looking for either.

Do you often go looking for friends by means of obscure search phrases?

Drowning in Medieval England
I wish I had searched for that. I was looking for people from University of York and stumbled across your lj but stayed because you're a historian with a love of medieval history, I'm a history student at York and am hoping to go into medieval history for my MA. I'll be coming back for more :)

Re: Drowning in Medieval England
It's not too late: there might be all sorts of exciting websites out there devoted to "drowning in medieval England". If there aren't, then clearly there's a niche waiting to be filled.

Good to meet you - I spent a year at York myself, doing the MA in the late Middle Ages at King's Manor. It was a good program, and a fine year. I lived at James, which, last I saw it a few years ago, had doubled in number of buildings. Campus is being rebuilt at such a rate that I'm sure I wouldn't recognize half of it.

I'm jealous though - you can go to Café Concerto right now and I can't.

How do you get info like that?

These are actually the search keywords which found pages under the subdomain fishpond.owlfish.com. Our host automatically generates them.

If you can see your stats anywhere else you have a webpage, you can set up stats for LJ with a little extra work - I haven't bothered. The usual method is to include a 1x1 pixel "image" in your LJ template, hosted on wherever you have hosting and stats access, then do a search for every time the 1x1 image was loaded. If you're looking at raw stats, it's legible, but clunky, as long as you have a decent search mechanism for it. (Under linux, regex - "regular expressions" - is the usual way to sort through complex files like that. Happily, I've never needed to bother doing it that way.)

I will further gratuitously add that my other 2 subdomains generate far more boring keywords as a rule since they have less content. My professional site (sworthen.owlfish.com) has particularly dull keywords. My RP-related subdomain was understandably (if rather worryingly for the sake of the whoever would do such a search) located in the last month through a search for "dragonrider of pern - neopets".
