Search Engine Wars
Today I browsed through the site statistics of my blog to see what kind of visitors I have so that I can address that audience in a better way and express what I want to be heard outload in a better fashion. Well, to my surprise, I’ve got a great variety of visitors.
There are people from 34 different countries viewing this blog, about 30% of this people (if taking conclusions from the name resolutions of their ISPs) are using wireless internet; about 69% are returning visitors and more than half of the total pageloads are done under Mozilla Firefox.
These are quite a bit dry figures in essence, but I found it interesting and somewhat of value to share publicly. However, what really grabed my attention were the search engines referrals. Google bots really seem to be doing quite a lot of work around here. Daily crawling in and out. And as a result, I was astounded by the following search string:
For some reason Google obviously thinks that my blog is the information resource for this search strings. That’s good for the page ranking, but still I find it somewhat strange, having in mind that I’ve mentioned all these in between some other things. ;)
Anyhow. There are also a couple of other search engines that behave in a similar fashion (Yahoo! to mention in here). So I’ll keep a look at the „search engines war“ as my site statistics provider has called the referral section in its system :)
