Seriously one of the most useful things about Squidoo's Dashboard controls to me are the detailed (and updated all day) traffic and search stats for individual lenses. Not only is it very helpful to see what is leading people to one of my lenses (so I can add content, adjust module titles and content accordingly), but sometimes it's just terribly amusing.

For instance, I was wondering why traffic spiked a bit to my little Stewart Copeland fan page last night - but then my SO texted me that his appearance on Storage Wars had just re-aired on A&E. People immediately seem to run to Google to look up how Barry Weiss knows Stewart every time it pops up again on tv. Of course, I also saw that I'm starting to get traffic for people looking for information on Stewart's upcoming summer tour with Stanley Clarke. I'll have to keep on top of that news topic then until and up through the summer.

Another one that's been amusing me is the search traffic to my Taylor Hawkins fan page. While it got a good boost from home page placement last week, it still has been getting ok google hits, but very little related to Taylor's actual drumming. No, as of right now these are the top search terms for the last week leading to the lens:

taylor hawkins overdose
taylor hawkins wife
can taylor hawkins wife song
who else did the foo fighters drummer play for
taylor hawkins google
how did foo fighters meet their wives
taylor hawkins daughter
taylor hawkins health problems
alison hawkins foo fighters is from allentown
taylor hawkins t shirt grammys
alison hawkins taylor hawkins wife

So basically, people are nosy about his wife and children (which I don't have much content about except the wife's name and that he has two kids - I don't DO nosy celebrity gossip) and his overdose from many years back (still).

If I go back and search for the month, there are a ton of search phrases asking what t-shirt Taylor wore at the Grammys. Darn it, I should have been following that more closely and maybe found out and thrown a product link up!

Well, it's all just very amusing and interesting to me, sometimes.
