For the past few weeks something odd has happened. I’ve started getting more and more search traffic. On any given day StatCounter reports that about 80% of the visitors to this site get here by doing a Google image search. Guess what they’re looking for: photos of the kids from the movie “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” This site appears on page 1 for Mike Teavee, Augustus Gloop, Veruca Salt, Charlie Bucket, and Violet Beauregarde. But not Oompa Loompa. I’m not on page 1 for Oompa Loompa but I’m still getting search traffic for that term via Google image searches. Go figure.
I assume I’m getting traffic because of a post I wrote last year in which I compared the Willy Wonka kids to bloggers. That post contains pictures of the Wonka kids. I’m not sure why there’s suddenly such an increase in the number of searches for these terms but here’s what Word Tracker says:
|Search Term||Daily Searches|
I can only assume kids are searching for these words. Once they reach the site they don’t hang around though. That makes sense since this blog has nothing to do with the movie. Hmmn. Perhaps I should slap a Willy Wonka graphic in the header with a caption that says “Free Golden Tickets”. Just kidding. Maybe.
I should probably see how much Adsense is paying for clicks . . . .
