People arrive at the statica.com domain for many reasons. Some come here directly because they know who I am and want to visit the site. Some find statica.com through web links. Others find the site through search engine results. Boy oh boy, do I love those search engine results.
This site receives a decent amount of traffic, not exactly where I would like, but that’s okay. Considering I abandoned it for about 9 months, I am still surprised to see hundreds of people visiting every day. Most, as I have determined, download the free assets (textures, photoshop brushes, etc…).
I recently went through my SEO (Search Engine Optimization) tools to see what terms people were using to find this site. I was amazed, so I compiled a list of my ten favorite search engine terms (yes, these all led people here):
- magilla gorilla for president
- leg hair
- child chicken cigarette
- steampunk dog
- trained monkey
- booger porn
- how to cook a human
- naked man with bacon
- floral bra fetish
- things killing your social life
I must confess, however, that I know why people are using these terms to find the site. About a year ago, I was running another website called HumanOddball.com. It was a repository for all sorts of weird, strange and bizarre images. Then the site got hacked. I couldn’t restore the site properly and I pulled everything from that domain. I have since re-directed traffic going to HumanOddball to this site.
As a result of this revelation, I may need to go through my hard-drives and find those image to re-post. Apparently people ARE looking for some strange stuff. Who am I to deny them?
