Google has been nice to my site. Is it nice to your site?
 
A while back, I created a page of Photoshop Pictures. Later I noticed that I was getting a inordinate amount of hits from people searching for "Photoshop Pictures," so I headed over to Google and found that I was the #5 result when you search for "Photoshop Picutres" (I later drifted to #8).

BTW, you can now submit photos and ideas on my Photoshop page. Perhaps this will make it so my site will be first on the list. Wouldn't that be cool? :cool:

I'm also near the top of the second page when you search for "Kate Botello" and I'm featured on the front page of EllenFeiss.net. :D

I was wondering if anyone else's site been "chosen" by Google or has been featured on a prestigious site.

My hits increased by 2x when I wrote a quick note on Bit Torrent and anime in the same post. I checked my webalizer and extreme tracker - most popular everything related to bit torrent.

So there you go folks! Wanna get hits to your site put "bit torrent" in your site!

I talked about Linux appeasing the homeless, and a search on google for "Linux appease Homeless" pulls up my site first on the list :D

Cool

Hrmm... vanity searching? "clockwatching" lists us first (damnit, second! bugger), a number of other things. The one that really spooked me is that my real name, which is not common at all, first and last... pulls up a page from work that mentions me on page 2, while on page 5 is something from my site. Meanwhile, "finegan" get you my affero profile and my page on hits 3 and 4...

I flipped on the "refferer log" option in apache a while ago to see the google searches that ended up with my site. I recommend it, you would be amazed. "learn vmware" gets me as hit #1 and I've never even used it, heck... the page title was a joke.

Cheers,

Finegan

My site traffic quadrupled once when I added "elf porn" as a poll option.

Sadly, nobody stuck around... :(
