13 Top Search Words That Land On This Site

Just for fun, I thought I'd share with you the thirteen words or phrases most often typed into search engines that result in hits to my blog. I find some of them quite surprising!

  1. Jello Cookies- It amazes me that this is my number one. I shared my recipe for Jello Cookies here and, though it has not one thing to do with micropreemies, it is the number one reason people land here.
  2. Parenting the Tiniest Miracles (and various approximations thereof)- No surprise here!
  3. NICU- I certainly talk about the NICU quite a bit, so this isn't a shock.
  4. Basket of Indulgence- I hosted giveaways of three of these... guess some people really wanted to win one!
  5. Causes of prematurity- I'm proud to come up for this one!
  6. Bank of America paternity leave- I wrote about BOA's amazing leave policy here.
  7. Micropreemie blog Niagara Falls- This one makes me laugh! Someone was clearly trying to be specific enough to find me! I wrote about Niagara Falls here.
  8. Birth Story- I can hardly believe people find me with such a general search term, but it may help account for why my Birth Story is, by far, my most frequently read post.
  9. Formula Scoops- I shared uses for old formula scoops here.
  10. Playskool Busy Ball Popper replacement balls- I know everyone who visits me because of this query is disappointed... because I certainly do not answer the question in this post.
  11. Blanket sleepers- Who knew so many people were looking for blanket sleepers in sizes beyond toddler?
  12. Best NICU- This is one of my top posts but, ironically, has received NO comments at all...
  13. Dealing with insensitive people during pregnancy- I wrote a whole series on this early on. It generated a lot of response and I truly hope it has helped some women out there...

So there you go! Those are the words that lead to me most frequently. What's the top search word/phrase that lands on your site? What's the funniest? I'd love to hear!

man that replacement popper ball really perked me up---ours are "lost" in the house, so I really should find them instead of hope for replacements, but PLEASE post if you ever find the answer
