Search Engine Fun
Search engine terms that lead people to your website can be interesting, entertaining, WTF, random, or…depressing. Why do I say depressing? Because I kind of hate the fact that May Queen (in all its search variations) is like the number one thing that brings people to AAA. I shouldn’t, but since I really ended up kind of hating that drama, it makes me sad. Search terms also make me feel guilty for NOT finishing recapping certain dramas that rank high (Smile, Donghae namely, but it will be finished…eventually…I promise!!!)
Here’s AAA’s top 25:
- dong yi
- korean dramas on netflix
- personal preference
- smile donghae
- may queen recap
- asian addicts anonymous
- ikemen desu ne
- May Queen
- oh my lady
- ouran highschool host club live action episode 1
- tamamori yuta
- korean dramas on netflix 2012
- full house take 2
- netflix korean dramas
- smile dong hae
- personal taste
- cinderella’s sister
- asian dramas on netflix
- asian addict anonymous
- ouran highschool host club live action
- smile donghae episode summary
- smile again donghae
- summer desire
- bachelor’s vegetable store recap
And so and and so on. If I keep going, you’ll see a lot of repeats for Smile, Donghae (that makes me happy) and May Queen (still doesn’t make me all that happy). Yay for people searching for Full House Take 2! It was an underrated gem that people either steered clear of because of its title or hated because it was so different from the original.
I must say that a lot of people search for drama ending spoilers. Oh, and I get some fun search hits looking for Dramabeans recaps for dramas they didn’t recap, but I did or dramas we both recapped. Oddly enough, their site is the only search term that leads to mine. I haven’t had any other drama recapping sites crop up. That could because Dramabeans is like the gods of kdrama recaps.
I do have a few terms that made me pause and go how did this lead to AAA. Some I can figure out why…others leave me mystified.
- the plum in the golden vase movie
Ah, that’s right. nichan has blogged about the book (series)! Sorry, no movie news here, just a review of nichan’s about the book the movie is based on.
That one took me longer to figure out. I did a post about Japanese visual kei band Misaruka and they had a single called Cailleach Rosary. I have no idea if that is what the person wanted to find, but somehow I doubt it.
- guernica flow
This one took me really long to figure out until I remembered it was part of the lyrics from B.A.P’s “Power” – I guess people are looking for what it means as another search term coming in is “geurnica flow meaning”. In that case, it’s a reference to Picasso’s painting done in response to the German bombing of Guernica Basque Country village in Spain.
WHY is this a search term for my site? Do I mention someone in need of a spanking when I recap? I also have one for “asian kidnapped” and “shocked asian” again I’m not entirely sure why, but I guess my dramas might have some kidnappings and shocked Asians.
And some questions that people are searching for answers about:
- yohio real name
I have no clue. I’ve searched other places, and I can only find Yohio’s stage name. If you come to AAA looking for that, sorry, you won’t find it. But you will find Yohio’s debut PV. That Swedish (I think) boy really does suit the vk genre.
- no min woo girlfriend
I guess because I’ve made mention of No Min Woo I get this hit. I have no idea if he has a girlfriend or who she is…and nor do I care. I’m not all that interested in stars’ personal lives like others are. Sorry.
- what korean dramas are on netflix
Full list of streaming kdramas is here: www.asianaddictsanonymous.com/lists/asian-dramas-streaming-on-netflix/
And as for Japanese and Chinese dramas streaming on Netflix…none to the best of my knowledge.
- what episode of may queen does saan get hit by a car
For some reason EXO member Sehun shows up in search terms, but no other EXO members or EXO-related searches. Weird. The same goes for U-KISS member AJ. Also, Brand Guardian related searches did not show up until long after I completed the recaps and then only in reference to our OTP actors Yoon Si Yoon and Takahashi Yu.
Shine A Light Rose did a post on search engine terms and I thought it was really fun to see all of the stuff she found. My stuff…not nearly as fun 😦 Oh well. It’s always interesting to see what people are looking for.
