Ironically, this post will probably only encourage the very thing I’m writing about, but that’s okay. It’s not a complaint, merely an observation.
I’ve mentioned before that I often giggle about the various Google-ing that leads people to this blog. I like to check out the referring URL’s for our visitors just to see how they found the Sandbar blog, and many times I’m left wondering "how in the heck did that search get them here," or more frequently,"what in the world were they searching for that for?"
There are a lot of people on the internet who really want to know what happens during a hurricane. That’s so exciting! The Sandbar is famous! Oh yeah, they probably aren’t looking for our hurricane. In fact, they probably don’t even know we exist.
At least once or twice a day, someone uses that phrase in a search engine and they end up at our blog. And it’s probably safe to say there are many more people who do the same search and don’t click on our link because it’s obvious to them that we don’t have their answers, therefore I never knew they existed.
So, to those of you who are reading this because all you wanted to know is what happens during a
hurricane, welcome. If you want to know what happens during an actual hurricane, go here.
And on a side note, I’m a little bit alarmed, because when I did my own Google search for "what happens during a hurricane," one of the results was this: "What happens if you get diarrhea after the hurricane?" Are there people who actually ask this question? It’s apparently a popular result because it was the fifth one on the list.
The internet is a strange place sometimes.
