Google only knows…

Website statistics are a very intriguing subject, especially when dealing with “search engine terms”. I have always been convinced that “the mind of man is bounded only by the universe” (Pimpernel Smith!), and yet sometimes the ingenuity of googlers defeats me.

I have decided to share some of my statistics with you. The main search term, of course, is “Leslie Howard”. And there are some obvious threads you can easily guess.

  1. Most obviously (seeking confirmation in times of doubt?)
