Random searches?

Just a tidbit from life in the world of Articulate Dad. Looking over my statcounter pages for my soon-to-expire graduate student webpages, which contain a great many articles and papers, as well as personal information about me, of the last 100 pageloads, the following are the searches for my RL name, or the hits with no referring link, meaning the web address was typed in by hand. (Granted, some of the searches could have been for the Astrologer in San Francisco, the History Professor in Toronto, the IT specialist in Canberra, or the Rabbi in New York). But, here goes:

Maharashtra, Mumbai, India
Oslo, Norway (Norwegian Central Governmental Offices)
England, London, United Kingdom (Ashgate Publishing Ltd)
Skane, Lund, Sweden
Illinois, Chicago, United States
Hawaii, Wahiawa, United States
District Of Columbia, Washington, United States
California, Berkeley, United States
North Carolina, Mooresville, United States
California, Los Angeles, United States
New York, Staten Island, United States
Ile-de-france, Paris, France
New Jersey, Mt. Laurel, United States
Distrito Capital, Santafé De Bogotá, Colombia
Catalu?a, Barcelona, Spain
Texas, Plano, United States
New Jersey, Princeton, United States (Princeton University) <--[Field 1] Dept.
Tennessee, Memphis, United States
Washington, Redmond, United States (Washington School Information Processing Cooperative)
Czech Republic (Fulbright Router)
Washington, Everett, United States (Washington School Information Processing Cooperative)
California, Azusa, United States (City Of Hope Medical Center)
District Of Columbia, Washington, United States (Latham & Watkins) <--Law Firm
United Kingdom (National Health Service)
United Kingdom (Edinburgh University)

Of those, the following also visited my PRW:

Maharashtra, Mumbai, India
Oslo, Oslo, Norway (Norwegian Central Governmental Offices)
England, London, United Kingdom (Ashgate Publishing Ltd)
Catalu?a, Barcelona, Spain

and, finally, from:

Massachusetts, Cambridge, United States (Harvard University)

This is a search for [my area of research] at The University of Paradise, which would be truly odd unless they were searching for me, since I am the only person studying this area ever to have graduated from this department.

That's all to the good--keep getting your work out there as much as possible, since there is obviously interest.
