Then you’ll see a screen over to the right with the top 10 keyword searches. You’ll also see a place where you can click to view the full report:Here, you can scroll through and see every keyword that people have typed into Google and found your site.

What can I do with this? Well, if you notice some practical keywords that people are using to find your blog, you might want to consider writing about that subject more, or optimizing the post attached to that keyword/phrase.
Whatever you do with it, just remember that people are weird, and don’t take anything personally, like the words people used to stumble across your blog.
