Search-engine queries show TravelGolf.com bloggers' dark side
Being a TravelGolf.com blogger is a job full of perks. We get to travel all over the globe to play golf and write about it, for one. I mean, that’s a seriously cool perk. But there are others, like seeing Cheap Bastard spend an entire evening trying to hook up with Heather McMichael at the office Christmas party. It was disturbing, but you couldn’t take your eyes off of it.
Another perk is that we get to see random search-engine queries people used to get to our blogs. They don’t give out anything else, like IP’s or anything personal, just the query that an anonymous person typed to get to our pages, which is supposed to help us in some way that none of us has quite figured out yet. It’s basically a function that is completely ignored. Until now.
Take Chris Baldwin’s blog, for example. Here’s what someone typed into Google and ended up getting to one of his blogs.
Is that great or what? I didn’t even embellish it with the exclamation mark, that was the actual query. How about this search, which proves that Jennifer Mario is quickly becoming the world’s foremost expert on Michelle Wie.
Tim McDonald gets a lot of people looking for precise information, and finding it in his blog.
Finally, people have found my blog with a variety of queries, but a recent one really hits home with me.

I don't know who you are or where you came from, but it sure seems like you emerged about the time Rebel Blogger fell off the face of the earth. Is this some kind of marketing experiment by Travelgolf?
And is the Cheap Bastard on vacation or did he fail to pay his DSL bill?
As for Rebel and the Bastard? Who knows. There has been a rule in effect that those two should never meet in person, because they have a penchant for getting together and plotting things. But it's usually stuff like TPing someone's house. They really get a kick out of that.
At let us not forget the two most important syllables in the golf industry today -- Ron Mon. By the way Ron, that wasn't a golf course you played, it was, in fact, just a cemetary. We're still getting calls about that.
