WTF Search Terms

Full disclosure: all of these search terms won’t fall under “WTF,” but at least a couple will. Since “WTF Search Terms” was more likely to grab your attention than “Mostly Mildly Interesting Search Terms,” I went with it.

More often than not, the search terms that lead to my blog show up as “Unknown Search terms,” but occasionally, I’ll get to see the actual term someone searched for that led them to Dorky Mom Doodles. Most of them don’t even qualify as mildly interesting, so I won’t include those here, but there are a few that either made me chuckle, piqued my interest, or made me a bit confused.

Is this someone’s way of letting me know they’re mad at me? I imagine using “mom doodle” as part of a phrase would lead someone to my site, so tacking on “damn it” (or something like “jerkface that I hope breaks her thumbs”) would be a neat passive-aggressive way of letting me know they were ticked at me. Maybe that’s the case, maybe not, but I did search for this myself and found that I say “damn it” quite often, as this search yielded quite a few results leading to this site.

I can only imagine that whoever searched for this was hoping to find prices on meat and cheese trays, or maybe they were looking for recipes that required meat and cheese. I don’t know which blog post it led to for sure, but I’m guessing it was probably one where I talked about being a picky eater. Whatever it is, I’m pretty sure that they didn’t find what they were looking for.

I’d like to say that the person who entered this search term did indeed feel better after visiting this blog. Well, unless they’re fans of good drawings and sophisticated humor…in which case, maybe not.

This one has me curious. I’d assume that someone searching for “toddler poops in underwear” is either researching how to clean poopy underwear or how to keep the child from pooping in underwear again. The “superhero” part is what made me snicker. I wouldn’t imagine one would need to be that specific when researching this issue, but they were.

There is no question about which post this search term led to. Last year when I did my Calling All Dorks series, I doodled my blog friend Becca’s story about the creepy baby doll in her garage called Baby Howie. I absolutely love that Baby Howie is so legendary that someone searched for him on Google.

I’m including this one because I don’t have a clue how this actually led to my blog. True, my Spanx post is one of my favorites, but spanx is a pretty big thing that tons of stores sell. How on earth did someone wade through that many pages of search results to make it to this blog? For the record, I skimmed over five pages of search results before I called it quits. I saw lots of spanx for sell, a mention of spanx on NPR, and something about Kim Kardashian accidentally flashing spanx, but nothing about a dorky mom wearing spanx.

Carding dorks…is that like making sure that dorky looking people are really 21 or older before giving them their booze? When I searched, I found stuff that confused me because SQL was mentioned. I decided that I’m okay with not knowing what, exactly, “carding dorks 2017” is and why it led to my blog. I don’t want to expend too much brain power on a Friday, after all.

This is the kind of term you hope to get when you check your search terms looking for interesting stuff. Randomness! Penis reference! Oddly specific! I looked this one up and it’s not as interesting as it seems — it’s a reference to line from a movie called Heavy Metal. I did not figure out which post the person was led to, which is a bummer, because I’d totally like to know where I referenced something resembling talking about letting my dork hang out.

What interesting search terms have led to your blog?
