2010 - A Year in Uncool Blogging

Looking at this site's stats, I am frequntly wracked with anguish over the poor souls who land here looking for enlightenment & solid information they can use to better society & the planet in general. That they wind up here with nothing but psychotic ravings really saddens me.
ok, so looking over my stats I see the top search terms to land people here this year have been:
  • Grace Slick
  • Iggy Pop
  • Sun Maid Girl
  • Monica Crowley
  • Janice Rule
  • Captain Lust
  • Danzig
  • Alyce Andrece
  • Brittney Skye
  • Minase Yashiro

2 of these people are dead. Brittney Skye, a porn star, portrays a zombie hooker in the post where I use her image but say nothing about her, the Monica Crowley article suggests she is actually a soft core comic book character & the Sun Maid Girl isn't real. Conclusion, most people don't come here to read anything, just to gawk at celebrities, frequently porn stars.
Where did these unfortunate people come from?
  • Cincinnati, Ohio
  • Springfield, Ohio
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Batavia, Ohio
  • Phoenix, Arizona
  • New York, New York
  • Portland, Oregon
  • Chico, California
  • San Francisco, California
  • M├ílaga, Spain

For what I would consider a fairly Cincinnati oriented blog only 22% of hits are from Cincinnati. Virtually none of the search terms really have anything to do with Porktown other than musicians who have played here. I'm getting more hits from England than Dayton or Urbana. sheesh
My most popular pages?

Movies, celebrities, porn, junk food.
How do most people get here?
Google, Yahoo, Next Blog gets a ton of credit, the locations seem to rotate around the world. Sometimes the Next Blog hits are all in India, sometimes in Spain. Google has a strange sense of humor.
Where do people go when they leave?
The Laughing Noodle, my Cincinnati Iconography page (which hasn't generated 1 sale), Entertainment Earth, Sun Maid, a Pizza Strip company & The Springfield News Sun. While I frequently link to Cincinnati Enquirer articles, nobody seems to follow those links. Maybe referencing those guys kills my credibility. hm.....
What's it all mean? ~beats me~ Should I cater to my "audience"? There's way better sources for that material than what I offer.
Should I make more hysterical commentary & wild accusations of politicians? Should I use more cartoony images in an effort to ridicule my social opponents? Not really interested in being another COA T-USA or Cincinnati Asylum.
sigh
Guess I will just dispense more wisdom & intrigue. Thanx to the Blogging Isn't Cool staff. You guys rock!
PS - Favorite search term of the last 4 months - "sexy pictures of Leslie Ghiz".
