Oh what a giggle...

The good folks at blogspot have added some statistics for bloggers so you can see who is referring people to your blog and the search keywords people are using to find your blog, etc.

I just discovered this feature (about 3 weeks behind the times) and as I was checking it out, I noticed someone had found my blog by searching for "how to talk to a cute boy by the pool"

Can you imagine the disappointment when that search brought her to THIS?

do you mean the google analytics? I've been using this for a long time. If not, do tell where this feature is? thanks

Oh my gosh, that's just TOO funny! I should check what's bringing folks to my blog - probably nothing as cute as that! LOVE the pool boy punch art, BTW.

Oh Kim - now remember that TECH stuff is not my specialty but when you go to the "edit posts" tab from your blogger dashboard - there is a new tab at the top called STATS - I clicked on that and poked around. Interesting stuff.

That is absolutely hilarious!!!!! LOVE the pool boy, though!!!! I can imagine the person's shock when they saw it and wondered . . . what the heck????

Carol said...

A postscript . . . I read your response about the STATS tab . . . I don't have that tab. I was at my dashboard, clicked on the "edit posts" tab and I just have the usual stuff . . . interesting, though! Wish I did have it!!!

It is right next to "monetize"

Do you see that one?

Ruth said...

I see comment moderation (which is off) but nothing about statistics. Maybe you have to have comment moderation on or something?

I wish I knew a better way to 'splain this.

When I am on the screen that shows all my posts so I can edit them - there are tabs at the top - right under my blog name that say posting, settings, design, monitize, stats then to the side of that it says "view blog"

You are looking for the STATS one - and this is also right above comment moderation - at least on my screen it is.

Carol said...

Nope, nothing about Stats . . . right next to my Monetize is "Design" to the left and "View Blog" to the right. Perhaps I haven't had my blog long enough (just since February and I don't get a lot of traffic) and no one out there is "searching" for it! LOL

Ellen Kemper said...

Ok - that is just weird. You could check with the blogger folks and see why you don't have it - It just showed up on mine - I didn't do anything to request it.

So Ellen, when are you going to tell us how to talk to a cute boy by the pool! haha! Ok, guess the punch art is all we get. BTW I think I missed this punch art..tks for sharing again!

Carol said...

Ok ladies, I've just found out how to see the stats that Ellen is talking about. at the moment the tab stats is only visible/available in the Blogger in Draft Dashboard
