Another Reason I Love Comments

One of the fun things about Google Analytics is I get to see what Google search terms land people here on this blog. The top ones are, not surprisingly, things like “wild yeast,” “instant yeast,” and “sourdough bread recipe.”

But thanks to some of the more interesting comments people have left on some posts, I can report that people can, and have, also found Wild Yeast through such search terms as:

“ugly bagel recipe”
“sourdough starter smells like vomit”
“Spongebob’s flax meal bread”
“rosca de reyes swallowing the baby jesus”

and my favorite:
“why are my balls cracking when i coat them?”

Thank you, people. Keep ‘em coming.

  1. I so get ya! My favorite search that brought someone to my blog that blew my mind was “hunkie amish men do it best!” LOL. I had mentioned my “hunkie cousin” and I guess that is what put me in THAT search!

  2. Lordy, when I woke up to feed my cat and take my retarded dough out of the fridge and read this, I wanted to comment, but with my sense of humor…the loaf..oh never mind!

  3. 2 days ago, I posted a recipe for pink french macarons and entitled the post: Série rose only because this was my second attempt of making macarons and this series was pink coloured. In french, “série rose” means erotica movie!!!! I guess I desappointed alot of people ;)
    And now that I mentioned it in my comment, don’t be surprised on your google analysis.. haha gottya!

  4. I’m so happy I found your Blog. It is wonderful and I know I will learn a lot from you.

    Congratulations on making the Times list, too!!!!

  12. Your favourite is also my favourite :-)

  13. I have baked bread for years but never really dug into it much. My husband gave me the La Brea Bakery cookbook about 10 years ago. I opened it up and saw 2 to 3 days to make bread and I thought, are they crazy? Recently I’ve been converted and have reopened that cookbook, then a friend of mine found your blog. I guess I’m finally ready to cross that line into real bread baking. Really like your blog great informative posts and good recipes.

  14. See! I told you that people sometimes swallow the baby Jesus!!

    I often look at my search terms when I want a laugh. If people only knew that whatever they type ends up somewhere.

  15. HoneyB and Sandra, yours are way better than mine! But now I will rank for those things too. Wonderful, thanks!

    Sandra, thanks for cluing me in about the Times list, what an honor to be among such awesome company. If only I had know that was coming, I would have planned a more dignified post to greet the people who are clicking over here from the article!

  16. Just saw you on the top 50 blogs listed world wide by The Times – Yay!! Way to go, and hope the year holds many many lovely surprises like this for you:)

  17. Congratulations, Susan. I also saw you mentioned on The Times’ list of top 50 food blogs. You definitely deserve that recognition . Your breads and photos are incredible.

  18. Congratulations Susan ….
    was very happy to see your blog as one of the top 50 food blogs, recognized by The times..
    you deserve that and more to come.

  19. I found your blog through search quite some time ago, and I am so glad I did. You are truly gifted in the art of bread.

  20. Yup, I love looking at how people get to The Sour Dough there too. I think my most recent favorite was “Sourdough cure for syphilis” and then there is the constant strange link to my site through searches for Barry Manilow?!

  21. LOL. I found your blog through Google, but I’m glad I wasn’t the one with the cracked balls.
