Erik’s Geekfun Emergency
Despite warnings to the contrary, Salon did not pull my blog 30 days after the free trial ended. It isn’t a suprise really, the number of active posters seems to have dwindled dramatically. I suspect total page views have also dropped. The clearest evidence of this is the fact that my old blog hasn’t plummeted down the overall rankings more quickly.
I am helped by ringing up a decent number of page views early in the experiment, but, most of all, by the fact that at least a few people a day come to my blog as a result of a porn related search on google. It used to be that most of them were looking for a diary of a video store clerk I linked too a while ago. Now though, it is sometimes hard to guess what they thought they would find.
