Happy Friday everybody! After a long and stressful week at work (my AP students took their AP exam yesterday, so there were several long and busy days leading up to the exam), I thought I would write a lighthearted post today about a topic that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately: keyword searches for From Dancing to Running. After looking through my blog stats, I was intrigued to see some of the following towards the top of the list of search terms that have led readers to my blog.
1. From Dancing to Running
It should be of no surprise that my blog name is the most searched keyword to result in a direct link to my blog. Other variations of my blog’s name that have been Googled include Dancing to Running and From Running to Dancing.
2. Running My First Half Marathon
I spent much of the first year of writing this blog chronicling my journey in training to run my first half marathon, so its of no surprise that this is one of the top search results. I love looking back and rereading about my training journey, the race itself, and what I learned as a result of running my first half marathon.
3. Bucket List Half Marathons
4. Dancer Turned Runner
Given that this search term, as well as other variations, are very fitting based on my own journey, I’m not at all shocked to see this search term on the top of the summary list.
5. Josh Duggar 5k
You may recall that last July at the annual Firecracker 5k that Josh Duggar from 19 Kids and Counting also ran the race. Even though I didn’t get to see him in person at the race, it was exciting to see the TLC cameras along the course.
QOTD: What is the most surprising search term that has led readers to your blog?
