Other than reader comments, one of the fun things about having a blog is having a visit counter that gives stats and data. The counter that I employ tells me where people are visiting from, how often they enter the blog, but the funniest thing is it shows the key word Google search that brings some folks to this Blog.
Here’s some interesting stuff: There are a lot of folks searching Google for my heart-throb weather reporter, Julia Radlick from KATU. I did an article on her a while ago, (she is so cute). Anyway, lots of folks looking for Julia information end up here.
There are a lot of people searching the Sunday Market. It’s all good, except for all the dogs.
Lots of folks from Salt Lake land here because of my Polygamy article. Imagine that.
Oddly there are a lot of people searching the name Chester Trabuco. This tells me that either he has a stalker or he is spending way too much time Googling his own name.
I’m also surprised by the return visitors that seem to check in every day from Seattle, Portland, Allentown PA, Gig Harbor, and let me not forget all the wonderful visitors from the Great White North, G-Day up there, eh?
Hey, if it is Fredrik who is checking in from Belgium, please email me. The address can be found in my profile.
This Blog also get a lot of traffic from the other local Blogs that have found this site noteworthy enough to provide a link to it. Thanks bloggers, I’ll buy you a beer if we ever meet. I’ve lived in this area for nearly 20 years now and I am constantly surprised by how many people I still have not met. How about a Bloggers Summit…yeah right…too easy to round up the dissidents.
