One of the wonderful things about modern blog technology is that I can "see" every search that people use to find my blog. I don't often highlight that a lot for obvious reasons, as it gives me really good intel on what people are curious about out there that I've been known to pass along to various candidates campaigns from time to time. For example, many people use Google to search for "Team America Blog" to find this blog, either for the first time because they heard about it, or maybe just because they are just too lazy to add it to their "favorites" list. But many of the searches are much more interesting... and sometimes downright funny.
For example, here are some of the recent searches that came up with Team America as a hit in Google or other search engines, whereupon someone clicked on that result, which enables me to "see" their search, their IP address, their place of origin, and sometimes lots of other information:
"charlie rangel cash cow"
"fox news broadway bank"
"lake county casinos prostitution"
"dan seals human zombies"
"methadone clinics open on sunday"
"acorn and seiu"
"is dan seals a socialist"
and many others. Avid readers of the Blog will understand why this Blog would come up as a top result for many of those searches (although I can't seem to remember writing about casino prostitution... maybe they were interested in scoring over in Lake County, Indiana, since we have no casinos up here... yet). But lately, I have been seeing a number of searches for:
"dan seals campaign manager fired"
or some variation thereof. Usually when I see a lot of searches on a topic like that, that means there is a rumor floating around out there that people are trying to check out...
Anyone have any info on this potential development???
