    Hey folks.

    While checking "Site Stats" and under "Search Engine Terms," where are the results coming from?

    Is someone Googling "Comics" and getting my site, or are they just searching WordPress's search engine only?

    Thanks in advanced!

    The blog I need help with is uncannyderek.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi. It's from search engines in general, like Google. From http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/#search-engine-terms :

    Search Engine Terms

    These are the terms, words, and phrases people use, through various search engines (i.e. Google, Yahoo, Bing), to find posts and pages on your WordPress.com blog. Please note that these do not include the terms which your readers use within your blog’s Search Widget or any other search form on your blog.

  3. Based on the one test search I did for one of my Tags "tvmdc" (one of my tags is only used on my site - so easy to find me) - This is what was shown in the Referrers section of my stats - not in the Search Engine section - I was logged out so it would track me.

    en.search.wordpress.com/?q=tvmdc

  4. Awesome! Thanks for the info, folks!
