Funny Search Strings to Rank For

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by Foxxy, Jun 4, 2014.

    I often find bizarre search strings in my traffic reports that I rank for without trying. Some of them make me scratch my head and wonder, and others just make me laugh. I thought I'd make a place to share bizarre search strings.

    Victory Boobs -- I thought it was funny when I was ranked #10, and now I'm sitting in the top spot. I would have never known if I hadn't seen it in my traffic reports. Who the heck is searching for this?

    I've got "best seo sri lanka"
    which points to a post where I lambaste a local man for using a Sri Lankan spammer.

    The first thing that comes to my mind is that painting by Delacroix, Liberty Leading the People. I always forget the name and just identify it by something like 'revolution'/'victory' and, of course, 'boobs' :)

    Ahaha strange searches. But can gives you some additional traffic for free, so i don't see the problem. Even if it's not related to your topic it can make only good, to receive few extra traffic.

    Sure it gives some traffic, but I still don't sell boobs on my sites.
    Though, it might be a good idea I have to think on...

    I get all kinds of them over that one post. Stuff like fans showing boobs, boobs in the stands, football fan boobs, etc, etc. It's not really a high volume or anything, but I see like 10-15 searches a month on it. Sometimes I think I should try to somehow capture people searching for those terms and redirect them to an affiliate link for some boob site, rather then letting them on my page.

    Well i suggest you to leave it how it is. Because with 10 searches per month you will convert 0. At last if you can increase this results that can probably be a good idea to use some affiliate link.

    If it's google then you have the personalised search results kicking in and it comes down to where the person is, what else they've searched for and clicked on etc
