Who's checking me out..in Serbia?

Statcounter lets me see how people find my blog, and where they are located. It's mostly for personal entertainment, and to see whether or not my blog has broken its 10 reader streak- but recently I've noticed that a picture of Brent and I posted about a year ago has been getting some high traffic from google images. It's not so terribly bizarre, I mean we are RIDICULOUSLY good looking people (You DID see the picture of me from the last Flash Back Friday, and when I was 22- need I say more?) but the strange part is- this picture has been viewed off Google images by a number of people in Italy, Spain, China, Serbia, and a few stateside.

I hope someone is using this picture for some sort of marketing campaign for deoderant, so I can sue them and quit my job. A Serbian deoderant model- that would be awesome.

I've been to Serbia, they don't use deodorant there, so don't quit your day job just yet! ha.

I too get strange search hits. I made this chart one time (in Paint!) about how Jeremy Roenick is the solution to ending the homicide rate in Philly and it gets hits all the time, yet I can't figure out how and why either.

I bet it has to do with the word "strangling" in your picture title and after this past weekend there, you don't want to know any more!

On my sad little blog (which I have recently been neglecting), I get strange hits from all over, mostly related to a goofy picture of Adam Sandler's kid I posted a while back. My hits from Bulgaria currently equal those from Slovakia and Hungary combined!

I think Steve is right, a Google image search for "Strangling" pulls up your picture as the 22nd result. Umm, congratulations?

Kory, I need to know have kind of counter you have? Mine just counts
the blog world is so crazy.

I found through hoping from friends of friends a girl who just had her little baby die from the same unknown
disease my little sister died from. crazy world.

I also found soem professional photos of my cousins wit their pet pig. Yes they live in northern utah

Kory, I always knew you'd be famous someday, even if it is as a Serbian deoderant model. At least I can claim we were roommates once upon a time.

I'm thinking of doing a whole blog on statcounter searches - I referenced an article regarding a teacher who was on meth looking at gay porn and now I get hits for "gay meth porn". Awesome.

How can you find out who and where people are looking at your photos Welchy? Will you leave a comment on my blog and let me know? I am very interested and worried about a video my sister in law put on her site where dakotas little this shows:)

this is the sort of thing that makes me wary of having a blog. relatively harmless, but still... ;-)
