Looking over the referrer logs for my blog the other day, I noticed that of the 100 most recent visitors, nine had clicked over from Google after entering the search term "questionable content." I ran over and looked and sure enough, the fourth result returned for the string "questionable content" (with or without the quotes--sometimes it does make a difference) was one of my recent posts.
Hmm. Was Google judging my blog's content? After a little nosing around I learned that "Questionable Content" is the name of an online comic strip. I happened to use those words in a recent post, and that's why Google listed me in the search results. Feeling somewhat less persecuted, I returned to my perusal of the referrer logs and found that somebody had just clicked over from Google after searching for "horrible websites." [Sigh.]
C'mon, Google. This isn't really such a bad blog, all things considered. I've seen a lot worse, believe me. And while this may not be the best blog ever, I'm going to post those words--THE BEST BLOG EVER--and see if I can attract some search traffic for that.
Best blog ever. Best blog ever.
That ought to do it. I feel better already.
