My new found popularity

Sic transit gloria mundi

Much to my surprise, people are reading this blog. Why is another matter. WordPress makes available to bloggers a running statistics page about our blogs, with page views, unique visits, countries and …. and…

Fret not, most of the searches don’t seem to get stored by WordPress. Per their help page:

Some search engines don’t reveal search terms for privacy reasons.  That’s why we don’t always know which search terms were used by visitors who arrived at your site from a search engine.  When we don’t know the search terms, we show them as “Unknown search terms”.

UPDATE: In September 2013 Google started to rapidly expand the number of searches that it encrypts, which results in a higher proportion of “Unknown search terms” in your stats.  According to some sources, this expansion will eventually result in encryption of all Google searches.  This is being done for privacy reasons by Google when someone searches at, before a visitor arrives at your site.  Therefore we don’t have any way to unhide the search terms.  We recognize this means a loss of stats information for you and we will look for other ways to show you how users arrived at your site.

I want to feed this stuff into a random poetry generator, or…

What were you all thinking? (warning: naughty words ensue below the cut)

For everyone else, here they are:
