How did you arrive?
April 4, 2012 Leave a comment
The blog passes 10,000 page views today, and I thought it might be entertaining to look at how people arrived at the site.
Most people reading the blog regularly do so using an rss feed, or via the automated emailing function, and don’t actually visit the site. Therefore page views are mostly down to people clicking a link, or following a Google search. WordPress collects the search string.
Sadly, a number of lost souls wondered: “why do people get more birthday posts than me on Facebook”. One more solution-orientated individual however, wanted to know “how to be more popular than your friend”.
Perhaps the two people curious about the “going postal % rate in workplace” are the same two interested in the “human melting temperature”. I don’t know what has led Google here for that! But I guess I’ve just gone and strengthened the weighting that Google will give to my site being the source of an answer…
By far the most frequently used search term was “marc gawley”, with my favourite variant being “powerstance marc gawley”. Yeah.
