Real Alive Breathing Living Fairies That You Can Buy

Webstats are awesome. Beyond just letting me know how many people love me (click on my website) at any given time, they tell me what phrases, when Googled, have led to my site. And I just found the best one ever. Yesterday, someone found my website by Googling the phrase:

real alive breathing living fairies that you can buy

How awesome is that?!?! I like to imagine the progression of Google searches that led to this phrase. Perhaps the fairy-seeking Googler starts by simply searching for

fairies

only to find some Disney website. No, no, no. She wants

living fairies

But that doesn't work either. She wants real ones.

real living fairies

Arghhhh!!! No luck. Leaving nothing to chance, she goes with

real alive breathing living fairies

Stupid computer! She's not looking for Wikipedia entries or stories about fairies. She needs a real one, that she can order online, and get delivered right away!! And of course, this leads her quite naturally to

real alive breathing living fairies that you can buy

And this brought her to my website. I have no idea why. But I LOVE it! Though I imagine she was quite disappointed...

Intrigued, I tried this out for myself. And Googling "real alive breathing living fairies that you can buy" does indeed bring you to my website, but only after scrolling through FIVE pages of search results! Wow, someone was very serious about tracking down an online fairy dealer!

While I'm honored that such a noble pursuit led to my site, I'd really like to work my way up the search results page, which of course, is why I wrote this blog post. Once Google finds this entry, it will definitely become the #1 search result for "real alive breathing living fairies that you can buy"!!! That is, unless Amazon decides to go into the overnight fairy delivery business...

everyone keeps asking the same question real live breathing fairies and you just keep bringing your blog up but I don't see anything that has breathing real life varies so and every time someone asks you don't ever give an answer and supposedly this lady found one that's dead already so don't go putting stuff up that ain't true unless you can prove it
