Have You Ever Noticed?
Bloggers have a lot of ways to see just how many people visit them and lots of other stuff, if they want – like what posts are most viewed.
Over the last four years I have observed a very predictable pattern from my viewers. What? You say.
Well, every time I write a post that criticizes our fearless leader by name (which I won’t post, just to see how this post goes), my hits decrease rapidly over the next day and even as far as a week.
The largest search engine and the government leader are close and lots of money changes hands, yet the claim is made the heuristics used to point at blogs are not biased.
If you wonder, go back and study your own results.
