Well, this blog might have fallen off the page as far as the main google index is concerned, but on thier new blog search system it's number one for Ilkley. But the more-ites come in at number two, and not with their blog bits neither. So some work is still required methinks!
Well, thought it was time for a play. Don't know, however, how to get Typepad to treat the image as only one column wide and start the other column at the top of the page.
Also don't know why the word 'Rocks' appears in huge letters above the banner in Opera.
Anyone kow what's happened with Google? Has it changed the way it deals with blogs? I used to be in the top 20 or so entries from 'ilkley'. Not a massive surprise given how many times I mention it. I'm now not in the top ten pages (I stopped looking after that point). AFAIK I haven't been dropped off anyone's links.
Indeed, I'm now much, much higher up google returns for 'paris hilton naked' than I am for 'Ilkley' (though yorkshiresoul is of course higher on any search for pics of naked celebs (and non-celebs)).
'insignificant whining voice will now stop'
Thank you to whoever it was, cos without the links from there my Sunday hit count would have been about 12. Which, given my average hit count is a lot higher, suggests most people come here from work. Better than helping out the man, I guess.
Finally we make it on technorati. That took, like, five attempts...
Not that I care about publicity.
(mumbles to self...dogging, swinging, Yorkshiresoul, kicking old ladies downstairs (I swear someone's come here on a google for that before now))
Sorry about that. Post-election blues. And my hit rate dropped from near 1,000 down to about 20 per day. Let's try this--"Abi Titmuss naked", "Paris Hilton naked" oh and with WImbledon coming up "Maria Sharapova naked".
Not that it matters. With exams for the next three weeks, then two weeks of sleeping to recover, then a lot of Ashes cricket and then a new job starting (not in Ilkley) in September, this blog will be in inevitable decline.
Move along, nothing to see here!
See, I disappear for a few days (couldn't be bothered to turn 'puter on), and by the time I get back I'm getting a ludicrous hit-rate. 5,000 in the last three days.
Course it's all the same people.
BIg props (sorry, I'm listening to some of that young person's populr beat music, I believe it's called rap?) to yorkshire soul. Not so much for the amusing pictures, but for the accounts (with images) of numerous walks across our local countryside. If I wasn't already here; if, for instance, I was living overseas, I can imagine they would make me as homesick as Steve Harmison. Well done that man.
