No body likes a smart-ass

Well actually, I do! He’s been around five bloody minutes and the BH is teaching me a thing or two about this blog!

Remember I posted that I wanted to know how people arrived here? Apparently my site counter tells me – except it wasn’t and I assumed it was because I was too tight to pay for the extra statistics. Turns out some software (I’ve no idea what!) was out of date on my pc.

Now it’s sorted and I can see how you get here!

I know I’m sad to get a kick out of this, but what can I say, I’m easily pleased.

Thank you my sweet smart-ass!

Hi Mark, You've got Bravenet (so I was going to say I haven't got a clue! But...) Go into your site stats and hit referrals (I can see yours ;o))

Having just re-read my waffling post - I'm thinking you're asking about search words. I don't have that, because you do have to pay (unless anyone knows different, in which case, please SHOUT!)

I thought you were talking along the lines of what Daisy Mae (Hi Daisy!) has on her blog, only in more detail. Hers shows from what website people came (I Don't know why I'm at the top of the list). I'd like to find something like that. I have looked at the Bravenet stats, but am not impressed.

hey Debi. Yours will tell you referral words if that's how people got here. I find most new folks probably hit it randomly by hitting "next blog" at the top of their blog page.

If someone comes to mine from a link on their page (like you do) it tells me the url of the referring page. If they hit me from a bookmark it says nothing (so mine probably says nothing when I come to yours, since I have you bookmarked).

I also get hits from people looking for Joni Mitchell lyrics. I've had "Both Sides Now" used as search words.

Now I'm going to back out and hit yours using "Today's Jersey Fact" as a search word so you can see where it shows up.

Then I'm going to have a coffee.

Okay, I'm back. I used Lentula Vitae instead. You should be able to click on the "by details" thingy over on the left of your sitemeter page, then click on the number that appears to the left of the domain name "". Then just scroll down.

Hi Maureen - it's not showing me that right now but as you're appearing only once with lots of page views, it may be you have to go away for longer for the site meter to relog you (? I'm totally guessing and possibly talking out my...;o))

But thanks for trying and I'll check the stats again later :o)

Mark - If the refrring URL is known it shoudn't take much for the system to tell you the totals from each site, and I'll have a play with mine later to see if any new tricks appear.

I got there via the Internet. How did you think I got there?
