I play with the internet for a living so I have a tendency to pay real close attention to where my website’s traffic comes from. I took the searches that brought visitors to my site and picked out some of the ones that came in question form. I did this with my business’ web site a few months ago and it was kind of fun so I thought it would be amusing to do here too. So here we go… these are all actual searches.

How do i get a second off my 100m?
