My site is getting more visitors

My website is getting more and more visitors! It’s still relatively unknown, but it’s not like nobody ever heard of it. It currently has a Google page rank of 3, and, for the first time, people are searching of it: one of the top searches this week was “jefflion.net”. It means some people remember it and want to find it, as the opposite of arriving here after a random search on lions, Jeff Ament or Stephenie Meyer.

Also, I’d like to use this opportunity welcome (again) all of my new readers (both lurkers and commenters)! :)

Most popular pages these days

(See Sidebar).

Women and casual sex still rules… I don’t think anything here could get more popular than that. People are also interested in my post on Danny Boyle’s movie “Sunshine” and/or Cillian Murphy (one of the most popular searches this week was “sexy Cillian Murphy” <- no kidding). Spittings also seem to be really popular, particularly “Twilight” spittings. (I wasn’t aware this crap is still popular). Certain articles, such as “Bad personal content”, or “Bad visitor content” also seem to be popular, as well as my pretty uninteresting Goodies section (not that “Adopt-a-butt” game isn’t cool on itself).

One of the most surprising thing, though, was popularity of my introspective post “Things I don’t write about”. I guess it shows, contrary what I believed, that visitors are interested in reading more about the blog owner, even if it’s personal. Will have to think about this.

    Mira,

    “It means some people remember it and want to find it, as the opposite of arriving here after a random search on lions, Jeff Ament or Stephenie Meyer.”

    Lol!

    I search for “jefflion” sometimes, but most times I click from other blogs.

    Cillian Murphy is sexy, so I’m not surprised!

    I think visitors are pretty interested to read about the person life of the blogger. It can’t just be all about the outside world, current events, etc. Writing about yourself allows readers to relate to you on a more personal level. Not that all posts should be all about you, the blogger, of course.

    Well, it’s certainly a good sign. At least people remember my site’s name… for the first time since its beginings (2007).

    In that case, you might be interested in a heated girl debate here:

    It made my male commenters bored/uncomfortable. ;)

    Also, I’m planning on doing a post on “28 Days Later”. With pictures. :D

    True, but I never liked those overly personal, diary type of blogs. Frankly, nobody cares about what you had for breakfast or stuff like that.

    On the other hand, insigtful posts, posts that show what kind of a person you are, are always much appreaciated. The only problem is whether a blog owner is comfortable doing that.

    I might appear as a reserved person, but the reason I don’t blog about personal life is not that I don’t want to share stuff with people… I simply don’t like to write about it. If it’s something too close to home, I block. I couldn’t write a simple “Stereotypes about Eastern Europeans” post, let alone something really personal. I guess it was always easier for me to express myself through writing (fiction) than talking about my personal life.
