Here are some of the more interesting search terms that brought visitors to this site during July. You can see previous editions of this monthly post here.
Typos and spelling mistakes were plentiful (and sometimes hilarious) in the search results last month: long sleave t shirts from hawaii; bird siloutte designs; scoreched yard; bondige pictures; pictures of styalized owls; tinest birds of ma; srarrow resisence blue bird house; and images of western oriale nests.
I’ve got my birder gift shop under the same statcounter account as the blog so of course I’m very interested in search results having to do with t-shirts or novelties. However, I don’t think I’ll be offering any anti-pigeon shirt or underwear picture of turkey soon. I think falonry beer steins (another typo!) sounds like a good idea though. And I think I need to come up with a design for the sexy birder, too.
Searches related to the name of this website were magnificent frigate bird sanctuary, frigate bird good luck (works for me), magnificent frigate bird skeletal structure, giant frigate bird image and magnificent photography!!!!! (which they’re not really going to find here, haha).
Pigeons keep bringing in the visitors too, although as usual most searches are anti-pigeon (like the shirt search mentioned above). Others last month were anti pigeon feeder, how to stop pigeons feeding from under bird feeder, and the less negative-sounding a dictionary of pigeons in indiana.
Finally, I think someone made a big discovery they need to share with the world: unknown large birds of the raptor family.
Here are some of the more interesting search terms that brought visitors to this site during June. You can see previous editions of this monthly post here.
One disturbing kind of search that brings visitors to this blog are those that are looking to harm or deter birds. Pigeons were the target last month with searches for anti pigeon gel and pigeons ate poison. Someone also stopped by after searching for bird feeders that ward off large birds.
The most interesting and funny typos for the month were bird house dimentions, fedding oranges to the birds, and morphing owel.
The following ID-related searches also led to this site: looking for a white breasted gray-blue bird found in wisconsin not a nuthatch; did i see a falcon or a hawk in fox valley illinois; do orioles live in illinois. The answers: Blue-grey Gnatcatcher; Yes; Yes.
Future design inspiration came in the form of the search for prairie chicken gifts.
Someone searched for how to find out how visitors came to blog. I use statcounter but there are a lot of similar services out there.
My favorite search for June was bird feeder microphone. Dude, don’t settle for a microphone – you can get a whole video & still bird camera for your feeder!
Here are some of the more interesting search terms that brought visitors to this site during May. You can see previous editions of this monthly post here.
Searches for Magnificent Frigatebird-related information continue to bring visitors. Last month people searched for frigatebird bible, frigate birds natural enemies, magnificent frigate bird for children, frigate bird food chain, and how does a magnificent frigate reproduce? (what are the options for birds?).
Interesting and funny typos for the month include hummbird food, alalbama birdhouse, pigeon fancers, magnificient riffle bird, bird watching supplys, birders termanology, outdoor wildlife bird suppyies, and my favorite, sworowski monoculr.
I noticed a lot of searches for birdhouses and birdfeeders last month. Some of the search terms sound pretty funny to me, but most of them were for houses or feeders that are actually available for purchase, like these: bird house airstream; hummsicle; pirate birdhouse; and diving cat bird bath.
My favorite funny search terms for May were do loons breed in illinois? (a question I had myself a couple of months ago), rectangle scope (ouch!), passerine turkey, and quiet birding clothing.
Here are some of the more interesting search terms that brought visitors to this site during April. You can see previous editions of this monthly post here.
By virtue of the address, this site ranks high for several search terms containing the words Magnificent Frigatebird or variations thereof. Last month visitors searched for frigate bird myth, picture of frigate ninove, why frigate bird migrations map, predators of magnifecent frigate bird and is the frigate bird extinct. For the record on that last one, no, it’s not.
The only new addition to the poop-term list for April is poop for lunch foto.
Interesting typos included bird art eshibit, hundreds of wolfs, new mexico pitchers of the state bird, modern mesuring tape, and stop red squirrles from getting into suet cage,
Someone searched for pigeon rice explode video which I am sure I don’t have anywhere on the site. In fact, the whole pigeons-exploding-from-eating-rice story is a myth.
T-shirt design ideas came in the form of searches for quiet shirts (as opposed to…?), rat pigeon skyline t-shirt, and extinct endangered threatened shirt.
I don’t want to know what the person searching for spoonbill recipes was really looking for.
Someone also searched for how to feed juncos, which I find kind of funny as juncos are the most abundant birds at our feeders during the winter, and they don’t seem too picky.
My favorite search term for April was can kids join the fbi. I can’t find the landing page on this site any more, but this page is probably a good start.
Here are some of the more interesting search terms that brought visitors to this site during March. This follows the recaps done in January and February.
endangerbirds Sounds like a band of superheroes.
pigeon fanciers in the carrribean I am so going to make a t-shirt based on this search!
I’m also going to have to offer a prairie chicken hat in the shop based on this search term.
The person that searched for pillow pillow pillow birdy was surely looking for this site, but ended up here instead.
At least three different people (from 3 different countries!) searched for butts foto. Today I’m #1 on Google for this search. w00t? Meanwhile, someone in Italy searched for poop foto. Conclusion: write more poop- and butt-themed posts to increase traffic.
dog pishers and adult pishing also brought readers to the site. I’ll be looking for fish pishing next month.
A couple of fun typos came up: birds are magnicent and www.billed a bear work shop.com.
Pigeons were big too, with hits from searches for greatest pigeon of the world, endangered t-shirt squirrel pigeon, and pigeons eating rice.
I had some fun with January’s recap of strange searches that brought up Magnificentfrigatebird.com, so I thought I’d keep track again in February. Here are some of the more interesting search terms visitors used to find their way to this site last month.
are grackles legal to shoot in texas Gosh, I hope not! A couple of years ago we received a custom request to design a Great-tailed Grackle over at Birdorable. The request came from a fan of the birds who happened to live in Texas. She said the birds were persecuted there as pests so we made this design for Grackle supporters: Support Your Local Grackle.
rare bird born again blog They were probably searching for the blog of this band, but Born Again Birdwatcher’s blog is what first came to my mind.
postal service glassware Perfect for your next mail-themed dinner party.
dog looking through a scope Maybe they were looking for this?
buy kiwi bird pet us Please, don’t do this.
greeting card with spoon To wish you a very happy Spoon Day.

ivory bib woodpecker So close.

I have a Statcounter counter on this site and I like to check it to see how visitors find Magnificentfrigatebird.com. The counter tracks visitors to not only the blog but also our birder gift & novelty shop and our Amazon affiliate birder shopping pages for books, birding supplies and optics. Last month I decided to keep track of some of the more unusual search terms people used to find the site. Here’s a breakdown of the most interesting search terms.
what are you doing? how would you like someone to blow that thing inside your house? This strange sequence of text leads to my previous blog post about Hayden Panettiere coming to the defense of birds while shooting an episode of Heroes. It makes sense once you read the article, but taken out of context, I can’t imagine what people would think that is all about!
swift value Just what is a swift worth these days, anyway?
frigate bird pooping At least they weren’t searching using Google’s image search.
giant crow museum Woo hoo! Magnificentfriagebird.com is number one in Google for this search! I’m just wondering: were they looking for a museum all about to oversized crows, or a massive institution devoted to corvids?
transvestite bird Rock on, this site is also number one in Google for this term.
women pishing I guess this one was looking for a list of great pick-up lines?
pecker prints No comment.
Checking your stats is a great way to keep tuned in to what your visitors are looking for. They can spark a new idea for a future blog post or (in my case) a fun inspiration for a new line of t-shirts!
When using Google to search the internet, suggested phrases appear after you type in a few letters if you have the auto-complete functionality turned on. It’s a great tool to see what are the top searched phrases that start with words you’re researching.
I had some fun with this tonight by searching for bird-related phrases. When I typed birds are in the search box, two of the top phrases that came up were birds are endotherms or warm-blooded animals. hypothesize how this can be an advantage for the birds and birds are spies they report to the trees. That last one is one of the coolest band names I’ve ever heard of.
Typing birds with
led me to birds with funny names
which led me to some interesting lists.
Here are a couple of other searches I tried:
where do birds… go when it rains | go during a hurricane
what are birds… we just don’t know | afraid of
why don’t birds… get shocked on power lines | freeze in the winter | have teeth
Have you found any funny or interesting suggestions when using Google?
