A roundup? August 12th 2008

We haven’t had a roundup since back in November 2007! Back then was to be my first play with Google Analytics for this purpose, and I’ll confess to not even looking at the internal stats packages this time – Analytics does the job perfectly well on it’s own. Since November 2007, still out and out the most popular reasons to visit this site are: To find out how to remove unused css styles Look up Outlook errors The Philips X53 The EEE PC 900 The Ladybird Policeman (I still laugh reading that!) Among the more random things people have searched for: “mr whippy margaret thatcher” – why does this keep coming up!?!?! “symptoms of being out of shape” – I… Continue reading »

A bit of a Roundup!

Much as I’ve posted a lot more recently I haven’t done a roundup of what’s popular and what’s not on this blog for sometime! For the first time rather than just using my internal stats packages I’m going to use Google Analytics for this purpose. My most popular post over the last two months happens to be one of my most recent ones on the song “I fought the Lloyds” by Oystar, closely followed by my discussions of St Pancras, Traffic and Passion, and my new HTC Trinity / SPV M700. Google and Yahoo are still number one delivery mechanisms into the site, but 115 visitors in the last two months have actually typed “skillett.com” into their browsers – accident,… Continue reading »

March Search Roundup!

What have people been looking up to find me this month I wonder, a quick glance at the stats reveals it’s been a pretty quiet month – with the biggest amount of visitors being the “bots” with Yahoo visiting nearly 3,000 times so far this month almost double it’s competitor MSN with only 1,600! Google still isn’t showing me the love at 797 and I may consider a change of theme soon to see if that helps. So, how did people come to me from the search engines this month: Skillett Well it’s my name, and the domain name – no real surprises there! Or are they really looking for Skillet, a Christian rock band from Memphis? 01772 208600 That… Continue reading »

Tammy NYP, Who the hell is she?

Just taken a wander around Technorati, “Tammy NYP” is the top search term. Now how does something like that become the top search term ahead of Britney Spears (who has incidentally shaved her head?!) and MySpace? According to the Hollyweird Gazette she is an ex-cheerleader and technology student at Singapore’s Nanyang Polytechnic (as per NYP). She apparently fell victim to a phone thief, after which her mobile videos of her performing various sex acts were broadcast around the internet. There is a blog, which people suggest belongs to her (and the girl featured does appear to be a cheerleader), however her blog shows little that would suggest this as she celebrates Chinese New Year this weekend…. What the hell –… Continue reading »

Long Time No See

I haven’t written a blog post for ages, or at least it seems like ages… The stats report it was sometime in October, all before birthdays and holidays! Looks like I’ve got some catching up to do! Actually I can’t be bothered to catch up, it takes way too long – I think I’ll just resign myself to playing with this blog at least weekly going forward (if not daily!). How does that sound? Google! I’ve been doing some extensive work to get unbanned from Google. The previous blog that was here was badly configured and got spammed beyond comprehension (mainly with obscenities) and lead (I believe) to me being banned. I have since then tidied it up, locked off… Continue reading »

Red Blooded Males!

I trundled off to Technorati this morning to check whether some of my posts had been indexed there yet, it appears not. However some more amusing things were to be found when I searched for things I’d blogged about recently. The Philips X53 yielded just my blog (and old posts at that – not even yesterdays!). But a search for “red-blooded males” which I blogged last night was far more interesting! Jeff is concerned about the number of friend requests he gets in a day from twenty-something year old girls (isn’t he the lucky one), but to be fair I can see his point! Although girls that like to make friends by taking their clothes off raises some interesting ideas!!… Continue reading »

Search Engine Roundup!

I find it somewhat concerning what people come to this website looking for!! I’ve not done a search round up for a while – so thought I’d take a spin through my logs and see what the most popular search terms coming in to Skillett.com are! For the perverse among you! Worryingly in August and September the word of the month was ‘sucking‘ closely followed by ‘pants shit‘, and “bull shit”. I daren’t even go looking deeper into the logs to find out what caused people to find this site based on those terms! On the Techie Front September was popular for such search search terms as the history of linux and information on the xda3nbftool (used for upgrading XDA’s… Continue reading »
