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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Today is one of those days — I have no idea what to write about. So I use a common strategy, and look at people who get here via search, and see what they are searching for. Give people what they want. It’s an easy way out.
What do they want? They want origami. More than anything else, that’s why people show up here. Because we’re all about the origami here at the Big Bad Blog. Right?
So I start to research origami. And it’s boring. And I don’t want to write about it. So, in a stroke of genius, I decide to combine some of the search terms.
Origami Hello Kitty? Well there is this:
Alright … Origami Tattoo? This produced even more luck:
Moreover, the Internet turned up a blog with the apparent theme of origami tattoos, though it (sadly) appears not to have been updated in nearly a year.
Generally I tend to disagree with people who like to rape and murder others. But I find myself agreeing with this raping, murdering Satanist, who is appealing his death sentence because the judge called him ‘evil’ for being a Satanist.
And he’s right.
I hate it when the bad guys are right.
Yesterday we mentioned Unicorns, half of one of our most popular search terms. Today, we move to the other half: Origami. Why? Because there is an origami robot out there. And it folds itself.
Oh, and light sabres? They’re real. Welcome to the future.
