Although I use Sitemeter and Z-Extreme counters on my site, every once in awhile I check awstats to see how people are getting to my site as well as what the searches are. I have almost as many image search hits from google as I do keyword. That is amazing.
Here are the biggest keyword phrases that lead people here.
I suppose I need to find the entries that have those phrases in them and put google ads right smack in the middle of them or something. Perhaps I will have time this afternoon. It certainly wouldn’t hurt…
Here is the list of biggest referrers to my site (for the month of May) not including the search engines.
One scary thing that I noticed when I browse the full list in Awstats is that for each blog or “real” web site there are 10 spam sites. Ugly…
Anyone that doesn’t think Google rules the search world needs to look at this sometime. Google accounts for exactly 85% of the search hits that lead here. There were 8997 Google Image hits, 8835 Google hits, the next closest was Yahoo with 1375, and MSN with 690. Obviously it is all in what each search engine thinks is relevant information, but it also shows me that most people (as if we don’t know this already) use Google as their search provider.
