Searches Leading to The Hub

From POA to Me

Behind the scenes this web site tracks where my traffic originates and creates a list that shows what search terms brought them here.  Thousands of terms and phrases are on the list but a few dominate the top.  A few of the leaders are amusing, some are flattering (specifically looking for me) and a couple are disturbing.

Number one on the list and a winner by a long shot is Power of Attorney or POA.  It shows up more than twice as often as any other search, strange because I advise people not to use a POA if it is avoidable. 

The other words and phrases that head the list remain fairly constant over time with the top three staying the same month after month.  Searches for me personally slip back and forth between the fourth and fifth slots, rotating with the one that I find disturbing, Mortgage Fraud.  People actually search for “How to commit mortgage fraud.”  Good grief!

Here is the top five for the previous 12 months:

1.  Power of Attorney or POA

2.  Creditxpert

3.  Down Payment Assistance Kentucky

4.  Jim Simms

5.  Mortgage Fraud or How to commit mortgage fraud

Some of the phrases about fraud were alarming; many were questions beginning with “how to” while others were obviously worried about crimes they already committed.
