The Google

I track my stats using the simple wordpress setup.  I last posted on Thursday, which I figured was more than enough with the holidays.  Boy was I wrong!  Wednesday was a lull, then Thursday was high, and Friday was a new record.  So not to become too stat-obsessed, but for anyone else out there who writes, don’t assume the holidays will be quiet.  Of course, with search engines like “The Google” you can find interesting posts that I wrote months ago, and that can keep your interest until I start posting new.

Perhaps the fabulous-ness of my blog is becoming more well-known, and the increase is due to that.  Eh, except that this weekend (Saturday and Sunday, when I hardly ever post) there was almost no traffic.

OK, enough about that.  Hope you had a great holiday, mine was good!  One of the google searches that found my site today was “motorcycle vs car sustainability.”  Yay!  That’s exactly the point of my site!  (Not that I have definitely analyzed it.)  And someone posted a comment for the scooter calculator post with a link to a “save gas with your scooter” calculator.  It’s good but not great.

The power of “the internets.”  Seriously.  I just spent 10 minutes, found a great website for creating my own online calculator… and awaaaay we go.  Next post will be the debut of the brilliant new scooter calculator.  Here’s the calculator, very cool stuff: http://instacalc.com/

  1. That is awesome that you’re getting a lot of good, relevant traffic to your site! Keep up the great work! I enjoy reading it even though owning a scooter is still just a nice idea for me. Maybe in 2008 I will join you and everyone else and finally get one! 😉

  2. Walker,
    Thanks man. I still get the occasional “how do I make peanut butter?” searchers coming to my site. 🙂 Yes, get a scooter!

    And one of these days I will re-find the baby/toddler/small child getup I saw for motorcycles and scooters, and then post about it.

  4. Ryan, yes sorry I haven’t responded yet, I just had things to take care of. I’ll chat with you soon. Thanks for reading. (p.s. I removed my name from your comment just because I’m weird about privacy.)
