OK, this is weird. This blog's page view stats have spiked in the last couple of days, and something like half of my visitors are coming from Google. And not just any random search, but for the string saltimbocca seasoning. WTF? First of all, there isn't such a thing. If you search for the same string in quotes, so that Google looks for the entire phrase, you get no hits! And second, the only reason "saltimbocca" and "seasoning" show up on the same page for me is that I wrote a post about (fusion) saltimbocca, and on that page in the side bar is a link to a more recent posting about Italian seasoning. Google's usually smarter than that.
So why are dozens of people (and yes, I checked, they appear to be real web browsers, not a web spider) searching for "saltimbocca seasoning"? Did Emiril just mention the phrase on his show? And why are they ending up looking at this blog instead of the hundreds of other sites that Google ranks higher for that search?
