Talk about porn, get more readers.

On Boing Boing, "Free porn magic for you!" says that if you have a pornographic keyword (such as "free porn") in your text or in your titles, you'll get more visitors because of people looking for porn, even if what you've written is not pornographic.

I've experienced this myself. People searching for the word "fornicating" find my post, "Fornicating for Chastity," which is about politics (and the discussion of it). Someone interested in Bridget Moynahan's ticklish feet (for dry academic research purposes, surely) landed on my July archive because those terms appear in completely separate articles.

Beyond people searching for "toehold", those have been the most popular keywords that brought anyone here. The most popular relevant search seems to be to stuff about hamsters. I'd be interested to hear why anyone searches for "toehold" and what exactly they're looking for.

Meanwhile, it's good to know you can attract some pornographic attention innocently.
