I'm still intrigued by my blog stats. In Love with a Horse is still by far the favourite, but Beware of Elderly People is in danger of being overtaken by both Knickers and Naturists (ts ts - actually, these were two subjects I chose in desperation to fit into the A-Z challenge). Now, Proof is a top favourite for this week. What are people expecting? Do they think I'm running a covert distillery?
How disappointing, then, to find that's it's only a photo of me, struggling up a mountain.
Aliya has found that ping pong pulls the visitors in. Does anyone have any other magnetic tags? What do your readers like? I'd love to know.

Beware of elderly people, horses, knickers and naturists

It is not that long ago that I actually took notice of my blog stats, and I found those numbers quite surprising, too.ReplyDelete
My post "Dear Dashboard" is the all-time most popular of all my posts, although it only has 4 comments. My record-holding posts for comments, on the other hand, has only about a fifth of the number of pageviews of "Dear Dashboard".
I also find it interesting to see what search terms people used to (accidentally) land on my blog. The key words "wellies" and "puddles" feature high on that list, even though they appear in one single post.
Weird isn't it. Mine is "Back Home and a Pink Post" from over a year ago.ReplyDelete
Maybe we should do posts about weird and wonderful things - I don't know, like Cabbages in Bowler Hats and see how many hits we get!
Never been able to figure put those stats!ReplyDelete
Wellies and puddles...hmmm. Librarian, we live in iteresting times!ReplyDelete
Teresa, yours is pretty odd, too. As for the cabbages in bowler hats, give it a try and let us know!
Jenny - you're right. There are strange forces out there on the blogosphere. What's your top post?
I always get lost of extra visitors if I write anything about John Barrowman. I think he must have an army of loyal followers.ReplyDelete
Get a grip, woman - you're becoming obsessed! (My blog readers like Clangers, Kindles and people telling people things - not that I check very often you understand)ReplyDelete
Hi, Suzanne - who is John Barrowman? Perhaps I should Google him...ReplyDelete
Patsy, I'll get a grip all in good time (this is all not-getting-down-to-writing activity, you understand).
Haven't really checked out the most popular posts yet, but i suspect they'll be the ones highlighting a market!ReplyDelete
The wacky titles certainly get the attention, though - have just read Teresa's post!
Rosemary, you've probably got better things to do (I have, too, but ...)ReplyDelete
BTW this post is riding high in the charts. Now there's a surprise!
Interesting post Frances - its got me thinking now! I have been wondering how to increase 'my following' ?????ReplyDelete
Diane, I've no idea, but horses help, and anything to do with sex. Horses and sex...? No. Perhaps not.ReplyDelete
