my little sitemeter freeware (very cool stuff, btw), allows me to peek at ‘referrals’ (what URL people come to this blog from). about 3/4 are blocked or unknown, but the rest are quite interesting. it has allowed me to see how many readers come over from the lighthouse trails press release, or — today — from the lovely carla at emergentno, who, because i commented a one-sentence factual clarifier, has posted about me! welcome, emergentno readers! you are welcome here anytime. and, there, carla — blog traffic favor returned!
that’s not the point of this post.
the referrals also allow me to see something quite fun: google (or msn or whatever) searches that lead to this blog. so i can click on the referral link and see, for instance, that someone searched on msn search for “strategic planning bowling” and my blog tops the findings! now, why someone would be searching “strategic planning bowling” is a bit beyond me — as is, frankly, why i ever had those three words in a post.
but i just clicked on one, and saw that someone had searched for “youth pink guitar” — and wouldn’t you guess, my poor burgandy mist strat once again climbs the list. sigh.
