What’s Your Game, Google?

Googleanalytics is a wonderful site.

It tells you many things that you didn’t know. Like the fact that people in Algeria and Norway have visited your blog (thanks, whoever you are, you really made my morning there).

It also tells you many things that you were, frankly, quite okay with not knowing. Like the fact that one of the top five keywords that generated traffic on your blog was “Indian aunties opening their pallu“. To the uninitiated, it means that for some unfathomable reason, people who wanted to know more about elderly Indian women undoing their sarees, were promptly directed by various search engines to theotherveda.

Some of the other keywords were “serial rapists condoms plastic bags”, “fuck andheri girl” and “photograph of baji prabhu deshpande”.

This is going to be a weird day.

  1. hmm…interesting. unlikely that i’ll find anything useful because it seems that noone really reads my blog much….which is a shame…so, u work in advertising….there was a time when i wanted to do that…now i want to do journalism…but currently am studying science and wondering what i’ll be doin for the rest of my life.


  2. Hehe, I work for Google, and yea, Analytics is fantastic. But keywords that people search on will never cease to fascinate you. Here in our office reception, we have an enormous screen that projects a scrolling list of searches being conducted at THAT very instant anywhere in the world on Google. Which means at any point you step into the reception, you’re like to see the screen with words like ‘how to disable a toaster’ and ‘Britney Spears’ vagina’ floating around.


  3. Varda, I’m jealous. How do you get any work done? I wouldn’t be able to tear my eyes off that screen if Brad Pitt showed up at my desk with a Brit accent and a box of Ferrero Rochers.
