The title of this blog is Random Literary Blogging. While it is not exclusively concerned with random literary matters, they do dominate. From time to time I write about places, and sometimes I decorate those posts with interesting and usually appropriate photos.
Here’s a picture I like, and it has nothing to do with this post at all.
In significant numbers, most of the visits to this blog come from Googling some version of these terms: Buenos Aires, rainy day, kissing in the rain, Bratislava, and atheism.
After those visits, searches for my name appears. Then a spattering of odds and ends.
I get, depending on the posted subject that day, between a low of 80 and a high of 150 visits a day. Two-thirds or more of those visits are directed to my site using some version of one of the terms in the title of this post. (I wonder how big a visit boom I’ll get from this post?) Yet, posts on those subjects amount to fewer than twenty percent of the total posts here.
What this shows, among other oddities, is the failure of Google (and the like) search engines to separate meaning and intent from search terms. There must be a lot of disappointed visitors here who don’t find anything about rainy days and atheists, although maybe they find some satisfaction in the few Buenos Aires and Bratislava posts here.
So welcome anyway, and if you happen to have any interest in writers, writing, and literary matters, look around a bit.
