Google knows my name!!! Not in a creepy, stalking kind of way. In a legitimate, search-engine kind of way. I'm very proud.
Dave over at Big Ear Creations has software that tells him each time someone Googles something and lands at his blog. From time to time, he posts the hilarious and irrelevant search topics that have landed people at his blog.
I don't have that software. I'm not as smart as Dave.
Mimi over at Mimi On the Breach was discovered by Blogger a few years ago - that's how I found her. Her blog traffic spiked. As she looked back at it later, she made a comment along the lines of suddenly feeling that you have a mob of people observing as you use the washroom, and commenting on your technique.
I haven't caught Blogger's attention.
But the other day, I noticed some weird code on my site meter, checked it out, and sure enough ...
If you Google "Jack Berkowitz Omni" - my blog comes up third on page one!
Which would not at all be helpful to the person searching for Jack at Omni Jewelcrafters.
But I suddenly feel very special.
And I'm pretty sure me and Google are gonna do coffee sometime, you know, when we can make our schedules work.
