One of the more entertaining ways to crunch website analytics at the end of a calendar year is to take a look at search queries that were phrased in the form of a question. These types of pathways are extra emphatic, a Web search tool for those who want to confirm something very specific.
In 2012, the winner in the FishbowlLA Q-category was CBS LA weather forecaster Jackie Johnson. Four of the top 20 search-engine questions that led people to our site this year were about her, or more precisely, her significant other:
Jackie Johnson married? (#7)
Who is Jackie Johnson married to? (#12)
Who is Jackie Johnson engaged to? (#15)
Is Jackie Johnson married? (#19)
Former Good Day LA co-host Dorothy Lucey also figured prominently in FishbowlLA’s ask-a-question traffic. A trio of queries relating to her departure from the FOX 11 morning program were in the top 20, with many more overall in the top 50:
Dorothy Lucey fired? (#3)
Where is Dorothy Lucey going? (#4)
Why was Dorothy Lucey fired? (#14)
Finally, a round-up of this nature would not be complete without a look at some of the other more random top 50 questions that led readers to our site. As a public service, we’ve included the answers:
