How do they get here?

A few months ago I installed Site Meter on my blog.  Since that time, it has been interesting to see the number of people who visit my blog and the search terms which refer people to this blog.  (You can view this yourself for this blog; just go to the very bottom of the page and click on the Site Meter box.)

The words in the title "Misconceptions About Conception," are obviously the most commonly searched.  Other common search terms include OPK, hcG, CD__, Clomid, Follistim, irritability, anxiety, and the most common, progesterone gel.  Probably not surprising, since I have written about all of these things on this blog at one time or another.

Interestingly, I've also gotten a lot of traffic from searches about hematomas from dog bites.  Those searches usually link up to this post from last summer when I was bitten by our dog Hunter while breaking up a fight between him and our other dog Sebastian.

[In addition to searches, I also get referrals from other blogs that list a link to my blog in their blog lists.  Thanks, ladies!]

I hope that the people who end up here because they are using a search engine to find information about something infertility-related not only find useful information here but also find their way into this amazing blogging community which has been a tremendous source of information and support for me for over a year.

P.S.  If you want to temporarily increase your blog traffic, post a question or request for information on Lost and Found and Connections Abound.  One of the days I had a high number of visitors to this blog was the 24 hours after my last question posted there.
