A fun guidebook from Google on things you’ve always wanted to know about browsers & the web (but were afraid to ask).
One of the things one does, when blogging, is to watch the incoming stats. This does become a bit of an obsession.
It would appear that Leamington Ontario is somewhat more substantial than Leamington New Zealand – by a factor of about four
Not sure why my stats. jump about though. Others: nanocenturies, microfortnights, epochs, Planck times and something about the velocity of swallows.
We are trying to work out what Google is up to. I’m trying to understand page ranking as distinct from page indexing. It’s a bit of a mystery. The past fifteen months has seen a steady climb in daily visitor numbers here and to another site for which I am responsible. A few days ago the other site hit a blip – a sudden dive in visitor numbers. A quick look around confirms that while Google continues to index the other site (2000+ for Google and 1000+ with Yahoo – similar numbers to mine) page rankings enjoyed over the past six months have all but disappeared. We have a number of theories and intend to workshop the issue with an SEO expert tomorrow morning. I monitor both sites with the page view info that comes with WordPress.com and with Site Meter. Today I embedded FEEDJIT Live which tracks current visitors, into my sidebar. If you click the image above you can watch it in action. All of which tells me all I really need to know about visitors but little about how to maintain and indeed increase visitor numbers. Both sites are updated regularly (at least four times a week) and feature almost exclusively, original material. As always there is much to learn.

Having Google index my site as I add to it – is extremely satisfying.
Well, well my first conversation with an actual Google person. Random. A telephone call from Google Australia – ‘we cover both Australia and New Zealand – offering sponsored links at 30 to 40 cents per click through’. It was all a bit call centre-ish. I am thinking why. I ask where they picked up the address details –Continue reading “Google sponsored links”
