This week’s search,“are crows smarter than frogs”, is just plain odd. I wonder how someone could really not know the answer to that? But I guess with pretty much everyone in the world online now, any search is possible. Since I have written a few times about the intelligence of crows, and a few other times about our very interesting local frogs, I understand how the searcher ended up here. But I wonder if they found the answer they were looking for?
Here are a few other interesting facts about the searches I find. This week, for example, 88% of the visits here were brought by search engines. Since there were about 7,500 unique visits this week, that means about 6,600 of those were as the result of a search phrase. So, as you can see, I have a pretty big pool to choose from. Still, I usually have to go pretty far down the list to get a good one. Most of the searches are actually very logical in nature.
