Let’s hope I can grab that number 1 spot someday soon.
As previously posted I have been watching my sites statistics through the fabulous Awstats program provided through the cPanel X that my host buildtolearn.com provides. It allows me to view a great number of statistics about the visitors I have to this site there is a demo here.
But what I have found interesting is where the different visitors have come from. Most are from my signature on the forums that I frequent, such as: aaNet and Gentoo but I am starting to see a few people getting here from Google searches. Which mainly gets them to my “emerge world” story that I have mentioned before and one person who was interested “afact trailer” where I come up in 5th on Google for that search. Would be nice if some more coments made there way onto here so I could know if they found what they were looking for but hey at least I have some hits :). However I’m still only 13th for the search “JBlog” on Google, second page :(, though for only working on the site for the last month and a half I suppose it’s not too bad going.
To all my visitors that come in from different blog searches and pings welcome.
But the most curious is two links that show up from 2 articles that I would have not guessed one on Zdnet and one form the NY Times. Don’t ask me how I looked at these two sites and tried to find how. The only thought other than a weird thing where I went straight from these sites to mine but then again I have never registered with the NY Times before today. So I have no idea how I got links there.
Stats are looking good 121 unique visitors for June 2004 so with a bit more work and many more posts I might have a winner here. Just keep trying until I get that number 1 spot on Google for a “JBlog”.
I was looking at the stats for my blog today using the Awstats which is provided by my fantastic free webhost bulidtolearn and I noticed that I had a visitor who searched “emerge world” in at google so I did the search myself. To my supprise my tale of emerge world came up 4th you can do the search yourself at Google or here is a direct link.
What’s even more supprising is that I come in even before any Gentoo sites so go figure :cool:. The google bot is good for something I suppose.
After fiddling I now have a WordPress weblog.
Bear with me as I get it configured and start blogging
