I don't understand how we pop up for half of those. I mean, some of them are quirky enough that we might end up on the first page, but 'flexible sex'? Do a lot of people get multiple pages into their Google searches?

Apparently so. We're about the 160th result for "flexible sex" (this search came from Google Canada; might be slightly different here).

I've never looked at the referrer logs (don't actually know how) but is this all or most of the searches, or are you just picking out the funny ones? I mean, how many people google their way here?

I kind of assumed that the vast majority of people reading were regulars or semiregulars, who get here through a bookmark or someone's blogroll or something.

Huh. I can see the site popping up on a lot of searches, but I'd think it would almost always be obviously not what the searcher was looking for, and not get the clickthrough. I'm probably just not estimating the number of searchers right.

But note that a lot of the "referring site" traffic is people clicking through multiple times from their own site or someone's blogroll, so basically regular readers who use a web page for bookmarking.

Thanks for the pointer, KR. Indeed, I study people's Internet user skills and I can safely say that at this point little surprises me. (I do in-person observations of people's online activities and my focus is on average Web users, not experts, especially looking at their information-seeking abilities.) It is completely plausible that someone would keep clicking through to additional results pages without refining a search query. In fact, a large proportion of queries are still short and many users don't know or think to refine in a way that would help them. (Ironically, the other type of mistake many users make is to submit a query so narrow that they get almost no hits.)
