My blog has been up and running for a week now, and I’ve been checking my stats regularly to see whether by some miracle anybody has actually visited or left a comment.
I was pretty excited today to check my emails this afternoon and see two comment notifications waiting for me. Unfortunately both comments were from friends/relatives and both were of an abusive nature. So I won’t give A1 Laser Repairs or Don Gray Electrical Supplies a plug. Bastards.
Anyway, that got me interested in checking the Blog Feed stats for my site, and I was very happy to note that someone had actually navigated here from Google using keyword search ‘WW2 500 words’. Which I guess proves that the mechanism for cataloging blog entries from WordPress is working as promised. I then checked Google using keyword ‘Bruce Clarke blog’ and this site came up as first hit. Woo hoo. I then checked my wife’s internet site (Wakelin Solutionz) to see whether that came up on Google. Nada, even though the site has been live for several years. So I guess that all goes to prove WordPress is not a bad place for your site to be hosted.
So the plan now is to set up a blog site for Wakelin Solutionz to see whether that will help with her Google rankings.
