How people found me

People searched for “why pray(?),” “complaining prophets,” “how to become an online ordained Christian minister,” “japanese zen waterfall,” and “شاوي شاوي شاوي” and they found this site. A friend of mine who runs a popular blog (at least it’s popular with me) periodically does a post examining what search terms have led people to his site. So now I’m ripping off his idea for my own blog.

I started A Free Faith in March, and it really got rolling at the beginning of July. In all, I’ve made 48 posts, and have had a little more than 3,900 page views.  I don’t know how to evaluate that, other than to say that I’m glad people have thought any of this is worth looking at, much less some 3,900 times.

But on to the search terms. The most popular was “why pray” in several forms (punctuated or not, and one “why don’t Christians pray?,” which is an interesting question), which got a total of a little more than 100 searches, relating to this. Nothing else even came close, but there were definitely some interesting ones. The apparently Arabic phrase above is probably the strangest, and Google translate can’t seem to make any sense of it. After my trip to Japan (read about it here, here, here, here, here, here, and here), I got a number of search terms related to that, including “japanese zen waterfall,” “tsubaki ise shrines locations,” and “arrow and target.” Shortly after I posted about child abuse, I got a number of searches that used encrypted search terms. Not sure what to make of that.

Below is the list of every search term that led to this site in the last year, for anyone who wants to know even more.
