Sure, you’re a normal person doing normal things, but apparently some of our readers might not be up to normal things.
In the course of managing this blog, we often review the analytics, part of which is inspecting the keywords people use in search engines to find, among other things, our stories.
Some of these keywords are obvious, such as “3D printing blog”, “alternatives to thingiverse”, “fastest printer”, or “3d sand printers” and the like.
Some are very specific, such as “abs shrinkage 3d printing”, “best sandpaper for pla” or “prox dmp 320 price”.
But then there are the unusual keywords.
These illustrate a common pattern. Evidently our blog's name is too complicated for some.
baloo the builder ideas
And that last search is actually our domain name! Why not just type it in to your URL bar and avoid the search step?
Some of our readers apparently require a spell check plugin:
smoothibg pla prints
3d printer materal warping
best sliser cura or slicer
building dron scanner
can you aceton pla 3d prints
There’s apparently still interest in ancient 3D printers, as we’re still receiving several queries about the BFB3000, a very fine 3D printer in its day - 2009, seven years ago! If you’re still running this printer, you might consider upgrading as there are plenty of amazing desktop units these days.
Some readers are apparently concerned about health and safety:
cnc machine safe
is abs carcinogenic
abs thermoplastic cancer?
Some apparently want to work on very unusual projects:
merge a plastic and a fabric
3d print timber
analysis of plastic monster
3d secret of beautiful stream
how to create a dead zone in 3d printer
pla sanding and oiling
things that grow out your head
3d printed snow blower
No, do not attempt to 3D print a snow blower! I’m also a bit wary of the “things that grow out your head”. Also, “oiling”????
And there's certainly many examples of these standard search types present:
3d printed nudes
Some searches are just plain strange. And remember, these keywords were used to actually find - and visit - our pages:
I have no idea.
But my personal favorite for search keyword recently has to be:
I have no idea what that is, but it is surely must be the baddest RepRap 3D printer yet imagined.
