Take out last month’s holiday searches and this month’s search strings are remarkably similar. Folks are looking for info abou Reese’s, Kissables, Butterfingers and Rockaleta.
I think the biggest surprise after being Farked over the weekend is that KitKat isn’t on the list (and hasn’t even made it into the top 20 before).

How did new visitors find Candy Blog in December?
1. merry christmas
Nothing suprising there, Christmas was higher on people’s minds in December than in November.
The continued appearance of Rockaleta does suprise me though, not that people come here (I’m the first result) but that the candy company (Sonric) that makes them doesn’t make more of an effort to get their web page higher.
M&Ms did not even make the list this time (that doesn’t mean people aren’t looking online for M&Ms, they’re just not coming to Candy Blog for their M&M content).

Search string changes are a pretty clear indication of the season of the year. Last month’s search strings reflect the departure of Halloween and the arrival of Christmas. Oddly enough, Butterfinger is still going strong, having appeared near the top of all lists and taking over the #1 slot for the first time in November.
As with last month, Candy Convention was still coming up pretty high (in the #15 spot), I guess Food Network is still running that special.

Here?s a list of what brought folks to Candy Blog through search engines during the month of October:
1. halloween candy
The big changes this past month were of course brought about by the first holiday of Candy Season but Max Brenner still remains a strong contender on the list as they opened a new cafe in New York City a couple of months ago.
The big surprise for me was the number of search hits for the phrase Candy Convention. If you google that, my site comes up as the first one, with my profile coverage of the All Candy Expo this past summer. The Food Network started airing their special on the convention last weekend, so there’s been a huge spike in traffic regarding that.
The exceptionally fun part was last night watching the search strings as it was quite obvious that folks were searching to find out the number of calories and kosher status of many popular Halloween goodies!

Here’s a list of what brought folks to Candy Blog through search engines during the month of September:
Again, just because that’s what brought then to Candy Blog, that doesn’t mean that these were the most popular candy searches lately it’s just what’s on Candy Blog reader’s minds.

Here’s a list of what brought folks to Candy Blog through search engines during the month of August:
I don’t know if the folks searching for Maya Gold were disappointed to find chocolate or not. Things that I don’t put on the list are searches for things like sweet, candy, sugar and blog.

So at the end of every month I give my webstats a little peek. It’s a way for me to check what people are thinking about and what they’re looking for. Most of all, it tells me why people come to Candy Blog.
So I thought I’d start sharing the top candy searches that lead people to Candy Blog each month:
Of course there are other searches going on out there on the engines that didn’t lead them here.
Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
