Readership Analysis, or looking for free porn in all the wrong places

One commenter recently noted that though I intended a blogging slowdown, I wrote much recently. Mea Culpa. The Free porn, Google, spam, Internet censorship, and the Supreme Court combination was too tempting to let pass: Google *and* porn *and* stupid journalism tricks *and* Internet censorship laws ...

And then I wanted to capitalize on whatever traffic it might have brought me.

But looking at the numbers for that post since it was written, the audience doesn't seem to have been spectacular.

Total specific readers (unique IP's): 514

No referer : 105 131
google's : 139
other search sites (may contain rebranded google): 82 subscribers: 27
and misc sources

So, observe the importance of the gatekeeper. In this case the reference. That reference was comparable to my total average readership.

Too many people are looking for Free Porn in all the wrong places (though, to be fair, they may not know it).

Sigh. Again, gatekeepers or nothing. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

preparing a google bomb on the usdj? or reminding of the novel "the process" where K sifts through the papers of his judge?
