Over the last few years of doing this blog, I’ve been surprised at what search terms routinely find their way here. I mean, sometimes it isn’t surprising, like when the so-called “Jesus Tomb” is a hot topic and you write about it (as I did here, here, here, here, and here), naturally you get traffic on that search topic. When it is a popular news item, people Google it, and they find your recent post — no surprise, there.
But over the years, some topics have stood out as consistent sources of traffic, regardless of what’s popular at the moment. I’ve often thought of doing a blog series on those items. If I ever do, today’s post could be considered one of the first entries.
For some reason, the obsession with skulls in children’s clothing seems to be a consistent traffic driver.
In just the last two days, my blog has had folks click to it from searches for expressions like “skull”, “skull drawings”, “kids skull clothes”, “skull cloth”, “drawings of weird skulls”, “skull shirt”, “kids clothes store skulls”, etc. All of them searches that found their way to my blog. And consistently, too: such “skull” searches find their way here on a daily basis.
What post is drawing them in? Have a look yourself: “Weird ‘Skull Obsession’ for Kids’ Clothes”, posted 10/27/2009. Several comments have been left for that one, not all of which seem to agree with my opinions.
