Fun With Search Terms

It's time for another great edition of "Fun with Search Terms." I employ a handful of different free services and search trackers that tell me how people find my blog. The details I receive don't tell me who you are, don't worry. Your privacy is protected. I do, however, get a list of the search terms people use when they click the search engine results that lead to my blog. Some are funny. Some I can provide with further information and I often do so. Here is a sample of searches for the recent past:

"rage about genealogy"
GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!! Am I the angry genealogist?

"roots magic to go"
This search was likely in reference to RootsMagic's "Roots Magic to Go" software feature. Since I love RootsMagic and proudly drink the Kool-Aid, it's no surprise that I get many hits related to the software. The best place to get answers is from the RootsMagic site itself. Also check out the RootsMagic tutorials.

what to put in a genealogy blog

East Texas Genealogy events
I get a lot of hits from people looking for Texas genealogy events, which is why I started the Texas Genealogy Events calendar. Consult that calendar as well as the Partner Page for the Texas State Genealogical Society for info on societies in this part of the state.

How many chapters of DAR are in Arizona?
This many.

Are you looking to track the provenance of bad rugs? I may need more information here...
