Google Analytics tells me there are a large amount of you women out there that are: A) middle aged, B) still wondering what to wear and C) realizing I have no idea, and then clicking on (See Womens Clothing). Well, I have to ask, “Why are you so obsessed with your attire?” “Will you allow me to help with this search?”
Since you have landed here because you entered the search parameters “middle-aged” and “clothing.” I have to assume you know what you are looking for or do you? What exactly are you hoping to find searching with those parameters anyway?
Are you looking for middle-aged or clothing? Because I can honestly tell you the web does not recognize the two parameters as being related to each other. Middle-aged gives you one set of possible results, while clothing gives you an entirely different set of possibilities and only one possibility of the two combined. I think more search parameters need to be entered.
If you enter just “middle-aged” you will retrieve a host of definitions on anything middle-aged, accompanied by images of middle-aged woman and interwoven will be the history of the Middle Ages; I do not think this is what you are looking for. Or are you seeking layered attire, accompanied by large attention getting hats? Unless you are doing research on the middle ages please provide more parameters.
If you entered both “middle-aged” and “clothing” you will find descriptions of rough, scratchy, woolen garments made well but requiring under garments. This also will narrow it down to nobleman or peasant, did this help? I don’t know about you but I don’t think this was the desired search result you were expecting. Add more parameters.
Now should you add the parameter of “women” to the mix, things start to get interesting. You will still first be presented with more clothing from the Middle Ages but it now includes children. But by adding this parameter the Internet starts to get personal.
It will spit out web links that address our nighties, women being stretched on racks and even menopause symptoms. The web will even start to ask you questions, “Are women who wear pants going to hell?” Great, now you realize those rough, scratchy pants you have on are the work of the devil. You should have added more search parameters.
Again I ask you, what are you searching for? If you are looking for proper job attire, please add this to the search parameters. If it a specific occasion you are seeking attire for, be specific. If however, you are looking for attire that will transform you into a cougar, do not search with the parameter of “cougar bait.” This will take you to the mens' section of the web.
