Google This: Search Term Haiku #4

“What, never? No never! What, never?  Well Hardly Ever!”–Sir William S. Gilbert (HMS Pinafore)

Whoever said that anything worthwhile is not easy must have been talking about Google.  Really!?  Yes, really.  Search term haiku continues to increase in difficulty, as Google reports fewer and fewer of these terms.  On a recent day, for example, I was thrilled to see on my WordPress stats page that some 23 hits on this site had come by way of search engines.  I was, however, horrified to see that only three of the actual terms used were reported.

I don’t give up so easily.  So even as I try never to break my own rules for this genre, using only verbatim excerpts from terms that found this blog, let’s just say I follow them with a fortitude worthy of Sir William S. Gilbert.  You can see the full detailed rules in a previous post. So here goes nothing.  (note: As a result of my Equation of Inane Celebrity Meme Virality being Freshly Pressed a year or so ago,  this blog continues to get many “meme” related search hits.  Read that original post here.)

  1. Impressive – my favorite is the last one of course. What is the “harvesting period” in this case? I currently go for a quaterly poem (otherwise it would be hard to keep track of which terms I had already used).
    But the next period would be Q4, and Google started encrypting search terms about in October. My results look dire so far – thus I am jealous 😉 I think I will resort to the search terms provided by webmaster tools though here it is even harder to “tick off the used ones”. But on the other hand spam has become much more suitable for poetry.

    • I use quarterly terms as well. Please tell me how to use webmaster tools with WordPress to get more terms! I prefer to stick to search term poetry because it is relevant to my blog–and it is absolutely hysterical to read some of the things that actually fine me!
