Good Ol' Google
Anyone who knows me well knows that I love Google. I Google often. Multiple times a day, easily. I find it absolutely fascinating that you can type in just about anything and find the information you're looking for. Usually I find lots of information I wasn't looking for as well!
As a blog author, I am able to see stats about the blog and one of the stats that I enjoy looking at the most is where my readers are coming from...meaning how did they get to our page? We get quite a few people who have Googled something and ended up on this blog. Not only does the stats report tell me how many hits we've received from Google, but it tells me what words were typed to land them here. Many times it makes perfect sense, they were clearly looking for this exact page. Sometimes though, it is comical how a certain search could lead them to Love Makes A Family! My 5 favorites to date:
#5 "3 Rotten Bananas"
Hub-a-what, you say? I'm guessing it has to do with this post. How funny, right? I wonder what the reaction was when they got to this blog! Lol!
#4 "Deepest Belly Button"
Now... WE all know that I have the world's deepest belly button, and anyone Googling to see if theirs was the deepest now knows that too!
#3 "George and Farid's Surrogate"
I'm pretty sure this search means I am now famous. Haha! Seriously though...Yes, I am Jeni, and there's more to me than just surrogacy, but I've got to tell you, there's a whole lot of pride wrapped up in the fact that I am George and Farid's surrogate.
#2 "Gay Dads With Babies"
I love this one. Yes. Gay men can and are having babies. I sure hope that anyone who found this blog that wanted to know more about it read our story and saw the beauty in gay dads having babies.
#1 "Heart Shaped Uterus"
I'm quite certain that these folks did not find what they were looking for,
but by God, my uterus IS heart shaped.
