An Unexpected Party

A few weeks ago I wrote an entry here about my feelings of on Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. The entry concentrated on the differences between the film and the original book. I expected that a few of my friends would read the item and maybe a couple of them would post comments.

But it’s been a little more popular than that. That entry currently has 22 comments. That’s more comments than all of the other entries on this site combined. There are people I don’t know posting comments. There are people having conversations about the film.

Looking at the logs, I see what has happened. For some reason, a Google search for two towers discrepancies has my post in fourth position. I guess this is drawing in new readers.

I’m getting used to this kind of attention. Recently I discovered that an entry I’d written about the BNP some months ago in another blog was turning up on the first page of a Google search for british national party. This lead to my blog getting some interest from BNP members.

I don’t know why my stuff is getting rated so highly on Google, but it’s pretty cool. If you’ve been lead to this site from a Google link (or even some other search engine) then you’re welcome. I hope you enjoy it.

  1. I’ve had the same experience lately with my weblog at //, which seems to pull in a fair amount of random Google traffic on old pages.In the case of your TTT post, I believe I came across it in your link from your weblog on Use Perl, and I’d guess that the same thing is true of pudge. But it certainly sounds from some of the comments like people are coming via third-party search engines.Cool.John
