Dummie's Guide to Blog Post Titles...

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
-Steven Wright


Oh boy, oh boy...I just thought I was oh, so very popular in the blogging world.  Even with my brief hiatus of, "Finding my blogging voice." I kept getting numerous hits and my numbers were oh, so wonderfully high.

Allow me to give you a little back story...we bloggers like to check our stat reports on our blog traffic from time to time.  How many hits did I get today, week, month?  It's a fun game (let's be real it's good for the ego). Also, you can see where your hits are coming from.  And you can even go to sites like vampirestat.com  and plug in your blog name and view what your 'blog worth' is at the moment.  Yea, it's true.  And I have no idea what that actually means and how to even utilize informatin like that.

As I was going through finding my blog voice crisis, I kept getting all these anonymous hits and my somewhat high traffic numbers just didn't make sense to me.  I was like what the?  Golly gee you really, really like me (my Sally Field Oscar moment)! Gosh, I feel so important, face blushing, hands in pockets, foot kicking up sand.  

The funny thing is, most of the time the hits are on this one particular post of mine. Hmmm...head scratcher.  I can be a bit naive and slow to react at times.  This seems odd, maybe I should look in to this. Why is this one blog post title, My Favorite App...AllWomenStalk, getting so many hits and where are they coming from?

Well, I'll just check and click.click.click on these sites that are just so supportive of me! Oh.My.Goodness. Who is this lady? What.is.she.doingggg?  Oh, golly gee, hello skin...how in the?...hello things I really do.not.need.to.see!  Grab yo sunglasses 'cuz the sun is shinin' and it ain't in the sky.  Get my drift...   

If it's a penny for your thoughts and you put in your two cents worth, then someone, somewhere is making a penny.

    1. Oh, I haven't thought of a that, a virus. I'll keep that in mind. Actually, this happening was too funny. I got a good chuckle.

  3. VampireStat sends a lot of fake spam traffic to bloggers to get hits to their own site! Try Alexa or check your blog analytics with Google.
