Thank you all for the thoughts and tips about checking out hit rates. I shut off the search engine yesterday and yet I still get referrals from search engine terms. I wonder why because when I do the same for my other blogs, they just return zero view rate unless someone type in my blog URL and visit my site.
It just goes to prove that when I created this monster of a book blog, it breathes a life of its own. It is no longer within my control!
Thanks to Judith who provide the tips to double click those bars on my chart to see the source of clicks and links that led the world population to my blog. There are a lot of interesting finds but never in my wildest dreams would I have expected to find this….
In the Wikipedia entry on “The Great Gatsby” at the end of the second paragraph lies this sentence:
Note 1 was linked to ………………….. this blog!!!
I know hit rate, view rate, doesn’t matter, but sometimes little connection or discovery like that made my day. 😉
