August 2003 Zeitgeist

Every month (since February) I post my site's referral search terms (not what people search for on my site). It's an interesting peek that illustrates "how people are finding me." Here's August's…

"Mario Kart GameCube" remains quite high. Of course, it should: I'm currently first in the Google search for that term. I'm high on "American Idol 3" because one of my posts is called "American Idol: 3 Contestants" and Google seemingly considers the ":" to be of lesser importance. People are finally losing interest in "Trista and Ryan," "Keira Knightly" is just starting to blossom, and the rest are leftovers from previous months. One notable new addition to the list: "Fastlane Cancelled."
