Here is something I don’t quite understand – how is it that I can get referrers from pages that don’t link to my site? This morning I looked at my logs from yesterday and nestled between typepad.com and something with viagra in it was keynote.com. I am used to seeing referrals from search engines, other bloggers, weird sites who seem to nab my text for unfathomable reasons. I suspect the viagra site is of the latter variety, but wasn’t sure what this keynote thing was. Turns out Keynote is a consulting company who does Total Performance Management for companies with an internet presence. The referrer page was a success story for keynotes revamp of yahoo personals, the person when right to my category, personals. If you haven’t cruised through there its contents include my not so fine experiences with online dating. This all strikes me as rather funny. First, keynotes pdf didn’t have a link to my site so my geeky question is how is it a referrer? Second and likely of more interest why is someone looking at success stories of a consulting company then going to my blog to read about how I renamed them the ‘Yahoo-Don’t-Take-It-Personally’s because it is an inherently awkward way to meet people.
I picture a young man in a suit giving a presentation to a group of people who may be deciding to use his consulting firm, whose specialty is Total Management. The room is a little too dim, the prospective clients are both sleepy and giddy from their lunch cocktails. He brings up the keynote pdf on to the screen, goes over some of there claims with a cocky tone. Uses his wireless mouse to them pull up my blog page and says…”PocketCT sees this a bit differently” He then wins the account and everyone goes to play golf outside Atlanta. Unfortunately for me the story does not continue, even in my imagination, with the salesman doing something nice like picking up my hosting and domain renewal bill that is due soon.
So now that I am on the subject of logs I love what lands people here. I get a lot about Connecticut being ct, I get a lot about things I like to write about like mushrooms, odd holidays and the like. I also get a lot about tattoos and sex, but I think that is becuase people are always searching for sex and tattoos.
Here are some others I just grabbed that I thought were interesting.
until one is committed there is always hesitancy the chance to turn back
bullshit connecticut hunting classes
craig’s lint free personals
dreamed hummingbird trying to feed on my mouth
if you wake up in the morning thinking about her love
what font is it when juice and eight track mixed together
afraid of admitting to myself follow what i think should be done
I hope all the searchers enjoyed their stay.
