Almost done folks!

Just as a New Years' Eve diversion, here are the top 100 sets of keywords that brought people to Columbia Closings this year. The caveat is that since Google changed the way their search works, I no longer get keywords from them, so these are from Yahoo, Bing and other minor search engines. Still, they are accumulated over the whole year, so that does a little to help with missing the biggest search engine:
