Ever since I installed the Feedjit widget in all my blogs, I have been able to tell who my most recent visitors were and how they came to arrive at my blogs.
Of course some of my visitors are my regular readers so I don't have to wonder who they are and why they are visiting!
Those that arrive on my blogs through search engines, now those are interesting! You can click on the search engine link and see what they were searching for when they found a post in that particular blog that they thought had something to do with their search.
I started a new blog called A Mommy Blogger and it is going to focus mainly on parenting issues, and my first post was a commentary on the Parkland High School cell phone sex scandal. Did you read that news story?
Anyway, I had installed Feedjit on that blog too, and after I published my first post, I went to update another blog. After that I went back to my new blog and imagine my surprise when I saw within that few minutes that first post had generated a few visitors!
Guess how they arrived at that blog?
Their search words were parkland, girls, nude, pictures .... haha, and when I clicked on the search link, guess what blog came on top of the search results?
If they had come hoping to see nude pictures of school girls on my blog, they must have been sorely disappointed! Haha. After a few hours my blog was no longer at the top of the search results that had the same search words. Guess that was my 15 minutes of fame on google search!
I like to write commentaries on news I'd read and I've had visitors drop by my blogs via links at CNN. Wished the trackbacks at CNN had brought a deluge of visitors! Oh well, a few are better than no visitors, right?
Sometimes I get a thrill when visitors arrive from google search on some old posts in my blogs. At least I know my previous postings are appearing in search engine results and visitors from different parts of the world are dropping by at my blogs!
Do you get thrilled to see the different visitors drop by at your blogs? I guess I am easily thrilled!
