Google Analytics is the most addictively fun web tool for your left-brain. If you have a website, I'd highly advise signing up (especially since it's free). You can find out all kindsa crazy things about what people are reading on your website… and even more interestingly, how people are coming to your website.

I just peaked at what keywords people were searching upon when they came to Three Imaginary Girls. The result? Some expected terms, like many version of "three imaginary girls," plus some popular bands we've championed like "grand archives" and "cave singers" and "fleet foxes" making the top 20.

But there are surprise keyword searches as well. Here are a few of the ones that made me go "hmmm."

#13: Stalking Imperial Teen
Um, exactly how many people are stalking the happiest power-pop band in the world this month? That's kinda alarming. Perhaps we should warn them? I just googled that search term and five pages in, didn't find a link to TIG. Weirdness.

#16: tullycraft 1993
We totally understand why a search on Tullycraft would find us, as we've written our fair share about the band… but what's the big deal about 1993 that's made so many peeps search on that, specifically, this month?

#18: sera(tone)in
I know we think our imaginary calendar editor is the bees knees, but we had no idea he was searched so frequently on the web. Again, should we warn him?

#34: three imaginary girls knocked up
Really? Has word about the pregnancy of one imaginary girl traveled so far that people are now searching special to learn more? Or are people that curious about what we, specifically, thought of the Judd Apatow film of the same name? Or do they just want to hear about how much we hate that Kings of Leon song?

#48 hermione boobs
Could we be prouder to be the #2 match on Google for this search? Answer: no.
