I'm a stats person. I'm the guy calling my fellow epic reviewers on the phone or shooting out text messages about the number of hits we've had for the day. Multiple times a day I find myself checking the number of visitors to the site, the number of articles read, and the most popular referring sites. Of course, I'm also always intrigued by the keywords that folks have typed into Google's search bar that have led them to our site. Some of them make sense and reflect some of our most popular articles such as reviews of the Tomb Raider Survival Edition, the Injustice Batman action figure, or the Power Rangers Legacy Morpher. Apparently there just aren't many other websites covering those products.
Other search terms are a bit...stranger. Here are some of my favorites and some speculation on my part as to how these search times led someone to the site. Check them out after the break....
Bioshock Elizabeth Bloomers
|Sorry kids! Nothing to see here!|
There's no denying that Bioshock's Elizabeth is a cutie. Generbeener wrote about the game and I reviewed the action figure by NECA, but really? Someone was searching specifically for her bloomers? While my real guess is that people are searching for reference material for cosplay purposes, I also like to pretend that our site has a large demographic of Amish boys who somehow have access to Xbox's, computers, and the internet, and have a hankering to see some bloomers.
Bruce Willis Miniature Figures
|You roll a 14 for search and fine a machine gun!|
Yes, I know that I did a whole article on Bruce Willis action figures, but I called those action figures; miniatures are either what your grandma collects or the figures used in role playing games. I like to speculate that someone has crafted a Die Hard tabletop roleplaying game out there and folks are searching for extra miniatures to play it.
Iron Man 4
|First look at the Mark 43!|
Saddam Hussein Action Figure
I have no clue. Unless Hot Shots: Part Deux had an action figure line that I'm not aware of, I don't think this figure exists.
Barbecue ActionMy name is Barbecue17 and I review action figures. Seems logical to assume that I have a small legion of fans who are always searching for my latest work (i.e., my Grandmother). Of course, there also may be a large contingent of grill-masters out there who are searching for information on how to improve their cooking methods and keep winding up with pictures of He-Man toys. Go figure.
