What Brings You Here?

Since my arrival at TPS, I have scrolled through our sitemeter statistics on a pretty regular basis to see what refers people to our blog. Here, in no particular order, is my unscientific analysis of the four most common web searches that seem to draw people to TPS:
  1. Something pertaining to "tipping prostitutes" or "how to tip prostitutes." They find this.
  2. For anything baseball, especially pertaining to images or getting thrown out. They likely are looking for this. These searches for baseball posts by Matt are by far and away our most common referral.
  3. Something along the lines of "what is a perfect substitute." This is probably econ students looking for homework help.
  4. Searches for "why are gas prices so high" or "depression era gas prices" bring us a lot of draws. As does searches for "2.99 gas deals."
