Art Blog Search Keywords

I’ve been talking to fellow art bloggers about common keywords that people use to find their blog. Some of them are to be expected, while others are over the top. What can I say… words are powerful.

Some of the common keyword searches for the Myartspace Blog are: myartspace, my art, controversial artists, artist statement examples, controversial art, and appropriation art.

In the last few days the following have been popular: rosenquist fire, appropriate media, artists and the recession, selling art online, birds of a feather flock together, offensive art, shepard fairy copyright infringement, and richard prince lawsuits.

Based on the art bloggers (and a handful of art site maintainers) I’ve spoken with here are some common keyword searches that people find their blog (or art site) with:

Common political, economic, and social art keywords -- Obama art, Clinton art, Bush art, political art, political protest art, McCain art, Congress art, DC art, propaganda art, depression art, economy art, social art, culture art, abortion art, Democrat art, Republican art, political party art, election art, union art, confederate art, apartheid art, war art, terrorist art, global art, state divided art, flag art, Hitler art

Interesting art keywords search in general -- how to be rich like damien hirst, did jeff koons buy show?, why does banksy do what he does?, banksy is more than one person?, how to be like banksy, how to be like shepard fairey, tracey emin in porn, damien hirst steals, picasso stolen art, how to be a rich artist, how to steal art, how to damage art, where to steal art, how to make art fakes, sell stolen art, cheat artists, art fraud, create fake art, sex art exhibit, is art school worthless?, art students are cheated, how to create art controversy?, how to live with an artist?, stop creating art

It is always interesting to check out the keywords that people use to find my blog-- if you have never done it you should! It can be good for a laugh or simpy to know what your readership is looking for. You would assume that people would find an art blog with searches for popular art news topics and the names of specific artists-- but that is not always the case.

In fact, Dion from Art News Blog recently posted about keywords and mentioned that 'hanging tits' is a common keywords search that people discover his art blog with. Feel free to share common keywords for your art blog. Be sure to include a link to your blog so we can see what all the 'search' is about.
