SEO for Dummies, by Dummies

I always look at my WordPress stats, since I find it fun to obsess over metrics. A few days ago, I got a hit off the search terms “women in sweatpants and socks.”

I don’t have any images of women in sweatpants and socks on my blog, do I? I’m not sure I’ve even mentioned sweatpants or socks…or wearing sweatpants and socks together…and I definitely wouldn’t allow myself to be photographed in such an ensemble and exposed to the intertubes. I wonder, is this a phrase that gets more traffic than one might expect? It’s impossible to think there’s a fetish out there that hasn’t been pistol whipped and unconsciously dragged out of the closet by Jaime Buffalino, Dan Savage, and (eek) Fleshbot.

I figure the only empirical test that will yield an answer is to keep repeating the phrase “women in sweatpants and socks” and see if I get any more clicks.

I’ll reveal the results in a week. I know you’ll all be holding your breath.

    “Today, I did laundry and spontaneously pitched some old sweatpants from college and socks with holes in them.”

    I’m glad someone is paying attention! Marie, I didn’t even know you read my blog.

    I think they should make socks that say “juicy” on the heel… so they can be more like the sweatpants of similar ilk.

    I wash sweatpants and socks together all the time. I do it because they are of similar fabric weight. It has nothing to do with whether they are the same color.
