Search terms people have used to get to my blog today, and my guess who was doing the searching

October 21, 2010

name 5 psychological disorders: Student, furtively typing on an iPhone in the middle of an Intro to Psych midterm

time to rejection science: Pessimistic graduate student

brains cognition pictures: David Brooks

does toy story 3 make people cry: Someone picking out a rental for a fourth date

sad animation clips: Graduate student who has never heard of the Handbook of Emotion Elicitation and Assessment

    This is great. Does wordpress offer this out of the box, or do you need something special to see what people are searching for?

    Also, I cried during toy story 3. Maybe it was a defensive father from his iPhone, insisting that it was a general phenomenon.

    And the learning styles one was probably someone who was looking for the citation, since they knew pashler.

    I love the David Brooks one though.

      It’s stock on the WordPress interface. You can also see things like what sites are referring to you, which lets you know quickly if you’ve been linked from somewhere.

      Believe it or not I’m the top link if you google “pashler learning styles.” It’s a pretty common incoming search hit. I kind of think people searching that phrase would be better off going directly to the paper, but there you go.
