Another Popular Post (Breasts)

Hey, remember awhile ago in my post "Interesting Blog Stats", I mentioned that "Missing Wife, Bottling Beer, Women wearing very little" was a very popular post?

Well, "Cider Drinking and Breast Flashing", my post from a few days ago, is doing even better than "Missing Wife, Bottling Beer, Women wearing very little" ever did. Who knew that so many people were interested in how my simple cider tastes?

For the week (May 16 - May 23), "Cider Drinking and Breast Flashing" has 10 times as many hits as the next most popular blog post (Beer Model Brew Day is #2, which seems much more interesting to me) .

For the month (Apr 23 - May 22), "Cider Drinking and Breast Flashing" has 5 times as many hits as the 2nd most popular blog post (Tweedle Beetles is #2, which always mysteriously does quite well).

All time (since May 2009), "Cider Drinking and Breast Flashing" is already ranked #3 behind only Poison Rationality and Tweedle Beetles). That is pretty impressive for only being up for 4 days. My blog has never gotten this much traffic over any 4-day period. AND, this post has not even been imported into my Facebook notes, yet.

So, I guess there is an obvious question to be asked. Why are so many people interested in reading my tasting notes on the hard cider that I brewed? I honestly have no idea. Seems odd considering that I'm not even a big fan of my cider. I am sure that the visitors have their reasons. For some reason, I'm getting a much higher rate of visits from Canada than I ever remember getting before. Maybe Canadians really like their home-made hard cider.

If I do a google search on the keywords vancouver breast flashing cider, the blog post, and my blog are the top two results. Pretty cool, hey?

Here is a photo of SheppyBrew's Gringo Cerveza JalapeƱo Cream Ale, which really has nothing to do with the topic of this blog post. It is a pretty picture, though, isn't it? Not only is the beer visually attractive, but I think it tastes much better than my hard cider.


  1. That's funny. My number 1 blog post is Resurection Rolls...
    Do you ever look at the search terms used to bring folks to your site? Could be revealing.

  2. I do look at the search keywords, but I never find them all that revealing.

    This week, 'esheppy brew' is #1. That is very typical as it is #1 for the day, month, and all-time as well (by a bunch).

    The only other search keyword with more than one this week is 'spring break tit flash', and it only has 2.

    Of the others with one occurrence, most are brewing related. There are a couple listed this week having some combination of the words 'vancouver' and 'flasher' / 'flashing'.

    Since the stats only list 10, I am assuming that there are a bunch of other 1-occurrence search terms, but I have no way of knowing what those are (or at least I don't think I have a way of seeing all those).
