Got Orthonomics in your Email Box?

Exactly How Did You Get Here?

The site meter that I use keeps a list of the keywords from searches that brought readers to my blog. Usually I know what post(s) the reader was directed to. But, on occasion, I wonder how my blog got referenced for some of these searches.

For example, a one stumbler onto Orthonomics was looking for an answer as to "why are women obligated in arba kosos?" Not only have I not looked into the question, much less actually attempted to answer the question, I'm sure that I never used the word "kosos."

Another web surfer was looking for "parties adults." My guess is that my post about drinking on Purim was not the type of Adult Party this surfer was looking for.

And, lastly, another recent stumbler on my blog was searching for "where in other parts of the world is pi used for different purposes." I might be a competent number cruncher, but I definitely haven't use the pi symbol since high school, possibly college. I have no idea what post this surfer stumbled upon. I guess my curiosity will remain. (For those that are interested in Pi, other blogs have addressed Pi in the Talmud).

'I'm sure that I never used the word "kosos."'

She may not realize you are Sefardic.

I think I was referred to you by Orthomom.

Chag kosher v'sameach!

Charlie-I thought that the blog owner had to use these specific words to show up as a result of a blog search. I find it odd that I showed up for a topic I never posted about!

Chag Kasher v'Sameach.

if you see someone arriving here on the way to or from onlysimchas and/or rubber stamping or scrapbooking sites, that would be me. :) Chag Kasher V'Sameach!

Google also archives blogger comments. If you search the term why are women obligated in arba kosos in Google you can see how the result turned up, and in which post.
