Around a hundred people a day visit this site because for some inscrutable reason they actually want to. They are far outnumbered, however, by the people who only know this place exists because Google (or, less often, one of the competing non-Googles) has directed them here from a search string. Which is good for me, because I can get a weekly article out of them.

If you’re new here, this is what’s going down: in a week’s time, we might get 2500 visitors, or even more. Not all of them know that they’re coming here, though; a lot of them are out there on Google or Bing or whatever search engine, looking for something, and the search engine duly puts up a link to the page here that matches it best. And we hope we can find a dozen of them that are worthy of the legendary adjective “strange.”

How this works: You go to your favorite search engine and type in a search string. At some point, they’ll stop sending you results, but inasmuch as there are over seven million words on this site, there’s a good chance you’d see something here that might be pertinent. We normally don’t pay attention, though, unless you asked for something that for some reason strikes us as a few degrees off plumb, and if you did, you’ll eventually see it here.

You know, this just might work

Patrick adds a new recurring feature — at least, I hope it recurs — to The Lost Ogle:

30% of The Lost Ogle’s site traffic still comes directly from search engines. The rest comes from either direct traffic or social media. Depending on what’s going on each month, the terms are all over the map. The top search engine results are usually “The Lost Ogle,” “Lost Ogle” and “Emily Sutton Married.” We also get some weird, odd and semi-strange ones. To steal an idea from the pages of Dustbury — the O.G. of the Oklahoma Blogosphere — we’re going to highlight some of those (that we feel comfortable publishing) at the end of each month.

Of course, I think this is a swell idea — if I didn’t, I wouldn’t have done it 617 times already — and TLO gets enough traffic to virtually guarantee some seriously wacky stuff in any given month. The first month’s collection was satisfyingly weird.

And this does explain why several people at 42nd and Treadmill were addressing me as “Mr. O.G.” on Friday.
