About a year ago, I posted (here) what now looks like a fairly topical rant about bonuses - don't worry, I promised trivia and trivia you shall have.
Sitemeter sometimes tells me that a visit to my blog is the result of a Google search, and sometimes tells me the search terms that resulted in the visit. For example, if tomorrow someone were to google 'fishy', the current post would probably be somewhere around the two-million mark, *note to self: try it*, assuming that googlebot is keeping up.
I freely confess to checking my Sitemeter stats every day, in order to boost my self-esteem; and sometimes I'll click on the 'detail' box, just out of curiosity. (That's how I know about the google thing.)
So this morning I noticed that somebody had googled 'undercooked shark steak' and come up with the aforementioned post. A bell suddenly rang - this has happened before! In fact, when I think about it, it's happened quite a few times before. Probably a dozen or more since the original post. I'd never thought anything of it until now (I tend not to remember that sort of stuff), but today the links clicked together in my brain.
Someone out there (in the US, actually) either a) is a fan of my blog but hasn't managed to work out a more efficient way of accessing it than to google the title of an inconsequential post from a year ago, or b) has an intriguing fixation on how to cook fish badly. Any other theories? It doesn't bother me in the least, but as you know I like a puzzle.
