This morning’s US Department of State review of Shawn Blog…
I’m kind of a web analytics nerd/wannabe in my spare time, so I’m often amused / intrigued / shocked / etc. by the origin of what I like to call odd traffic. Most of the “hits” logged on a web site are just other computers indexing the site to include it in some other data (usually search engines), but there are still people actually viewing web content. Those are the odd ones.
This particular visit to Shawn Blog may or may not be Hillary Clinton visiting Shawn Blog to confirm data on extinction level events for the impending Mayan apocalypse. If it’s NOT her, it is certainly someone reporting up to her about timely doomsday news found here on Shawn Blog.
Noun:A leader or manager; the person in charge: “the company’s head honcho in the US”.
Verb:Be in charge of (a project or situation): “the task at hand was to honcho an eighteen-wheeler to St. Louis”.
Here’s the stuff some of you people are searching Google for that’s putting you on Shawn Blog today. I’m always befuddled by the person who types a fully qualified domain name into the Google search dialog.
Who does that?
…again, #1 on Google for all the important things here at Shawn Blog.
Social Networking Value: Probably the first “social networker” (or at least the first one I encountered back in 1997 or so) is Chris Pirillo. My recent decision to buy Empire Avenue “stock” in Chris is evidence of how powerful what he has built online over the years has become. Because he also invested in Shawnblog, the masses who follow Chris (everywhere) saw this activity and, probably without and thought (since this happened in a matter of minutes), decided to also buy me.
Since it’s free, educational and fun, I think you should too!
I do get spam comments on Disqus but they’re usually already gone by the time I go to delete them. I am impressed with this!
