I was stunned the other day when I went into my blog stats and found that 1,286 people had looked at my blog, up from my normal 33 or so. What caused that? Probably my post on "Starbucks amateurs." I figure Starbucks--and other marketing companies--probably has a large number of marketing people whose job it is to use Google alerts and check up on what people are saying about Starbucks. My post was most likely not very important in the grand scheme of things. I hope they at least enjoyed the story. But what happens if I say "bacon?"
Did you know that "bacon" is the most-searched phrase on the internet? Why is that? I know people love bacon, Americans in particular, in spite of the fact that it's on all of the "bad" lists--cholesterol, fat, obesity, religious restrictions, etc.
Just so you won't be disappointed that I baited you with "bacon" and then didn't give you anything, here's a link to Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Salad.
I just wanted to see if my stats jump as much for "bacon" as they did for "Starbucks."
