Hang up your keyboards; I’m doing the searching for you

You never really know what’s going on in the back of people’s minds, do you? There you are chatting away about the weather and you have no idea where their subconscious is actually dwelling. Being fairly simple myself, I tend to take people at face value, but as I trawl through the Vegie Smugglers’ statistics, evidence is building that I’m terribly naive.

Amongst my search term records I get little glimpses of the strange urges that people hide in gentile society. For every bona fide, lovely mum typing ‘how to hide vegetables in meals’ into Google, there’s some weirdo lurking, typing ‘puff pastry toilet seat’. Quite how that search term directs them to my site is an interesting look at how Google jumbles posts together in odd ways. Sure, I’ve written about both ‘puff pastry’ and ‘toilet seats’, but I’m fairly sure not on the same day, and definitely not as ‘puff pastry toilet seat’.

Since this post, I get a lot of folks directed to me who have searched for ‘asses’ and ‘jeans’. And this post always ends up with those stoned teens folks wanting to know how to ‘smuggle shrooms’. I guess they’ve hit ‘I’m feeling lucky’ and are no doubt now quite confused and disappointed.

Sometimes though, there are clear winners amongst the search terms. So in the same way that Deadly 60 can create about 45 extra episodes of behind-the-scenes footage recut as ‘Scariest Sea Monsters’, while I’m off on holidays, this post is an edit of the recipes that get searched for the most.

This is my most searched for recipe - chicken sausage rolls!

This is still my most searched for recipe – ‘lentil sausage rolls’.
