Blogging, Traffic, And Search Engines…

Since I’ve been blogging a bit for the past few days, I thought I’d check my blog stats and see where my traffic is coming from. Interestingly, I found a few hits today that came from a Google Images Search. The keywords/phrase for the searches were “it’s not fair that I’m ugly” (which really piqued my curiosity) — so I did a Google Images Search on that phrase and sure enough, on the first page of the results was an image from one of my “ugly” forms from a recent blog post.

In case you’re wondering why all of a sudden I’ve started blogging regularly again — I’m tired of searching for FoxPro on the web and getting back a results page full of game callers — I’m hoping that if I start blogging more maybe other folks will start blogging more (hint, hint, all you bloggers that haven’t blogged in forever), and maybe FoxPro will be more to the search engines than just a tool for hunting…  😉

I’ve got to admit, I am absolutely fascinated by Google, their competitors, and their algorithms.

Lately I’ve been watching the show Catfish on MTV (based on the film by the same name). I wonder if I were to create an “Angelina, Nude FoxPro Developer” page if Visual FoxPro would suddenly become the most popular programming language ever…

Could happen 😉
