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?

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.

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

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...
