The in-laws arrived yesterday. My last day of work for the year is tomorrow. And that can only mean one thing: It’s time to stop posting regularly to the Big Bad Blog, and start to investigate what the Best of the Big Bad Blog was for the year 2010.
We begin today with your top five search terms, comparing to their position last year.
5: Sarah From Chuck (previously unranked)
Chuck is one of our favourite TV shows here at the Big Bad Blog, and Sarah is one of the lead characters in Chuck.
And, I suppose, sex-crazed Internet weirdos want to know more about her.
4: Felicia Day Naked (4)
Back in October of 2009, I wrote a Big Bad Blog article titled apparently the Internet needs more naked Felicia Day.
I wrote the article because a couple of mentions of Ms. Day on this website had led to an avalanche of people reaching the Big Bad Blog in a search for pictorial representations of her breasts. The thought was, if the closest they could get was mention of Ms. Day as a dirty fairy alongside mention of Saved by the Bell pornography, there is indeed a demand for such photographs.
For some reason, putting the words “naked Felicia Day” together on the blog has not reduced the number of such searches that reach us here. The traffic from such people is fairly regular.
3: Volcano Eruption (previously unranked)
We have posted several photos of volcanoes erupting here on the Big Bad Blog. They tend to look quite pretty.
Combine that with the Eyjafjallajökull eruption earlier this year, and it is understandable that volcanic eruptions make the list.
2: Tattoos (1)
Tattoos sit in the second spot in the Big Bad Blog’s list, and we are surprised.
Not that it’s so high — we ‘write’ about tattoos a lot — but that it is so low. The daily report of top search terms reaching the blog is usually crammed with tattoo variants, and this shows in the annual stats. In the top twelve search terms leading to the Big Bad Blog, over half of them include the word tattoo: “bird tattoo”, “bad tattoo”, “weird tattoo”, “star wars tattoo”, “hello kitty tattoo”, and “origami tattoo” are all there.
And let us not forget the word “tattoo”.
So thank you tattoo lovers. I’ll keep occasionally posting them, if you keep coming.
1: Origami (2)
But tattoos are blown away by the most popular search term for the blog: Origami.
The search term “origami”, by itself, is about equal to all those tattoo results in the top twelve. But if one then considers that the terms “origami unicorn” and the all-powerful “origami tattoo” also find themselves in that list, it pushes Origami to the top of the list this year.
