Today, I could not believe my eyes when I went to click Dashboard | Blog Stats | Referrers.
I came across to a referrer that is too good to be true. Referrers, as we know – are the list of sites that are used as the entry points to our blogs.
Referrers according to Word press: “People clicked links from these pages to get to your blog.”
I’ve been monitoring my blog stats for a while now as part of my ongoing educational research. Until an AI sprung into action. I’ve never seen a referrer that gives nyjoomla.wordpress.com that kind of hits. I became curious.
Investigation. Research. As you can see, my blog is not that special. As per record, most of the hits are coming from search engines looking for Joomla! solution or relevant topics beside Joomla! See report page (2.4.09)
There are ways on how visitors find our individual blogs. e.g search engines, word of mouth, worpress community, flyers and e.t.c.
One way is leaving comments/creating links/
It is not a secret that when we leave a message or feedback or comment, there is a possibility that visitors get curious and might click the link to our website. They look around. Click around and then if inspired or for whatever reason visitors usually leave their comments.
The last time I recorded having more than a dozen of hit in a single day (twenty at most) from a single referrer was about a year ago.
It was justifiable. I had all the reasons to believe that twenty hits was just right and reasonable at that time because my nyjoomla.wordpress.com blog was mentioned in one of the opensourcecommunity.org entries.
FYI: opensourcecommunity.org had wide readerships from the following open source communities/members: Joomla!, Drupal, WordPress, Ubuntu, developers, programmers, coders, technology movers and shakers, geeks and regular users like me who happens to know the author from the forums (Social Networking).
Forty one hits?
Sorry, for I am pessimistic about this 41 hits from one referrer- . It seems to me that the hits are not real? This record is just “too good to be true!” recorded 1/03/04
See the data below:
Referrer – – – – – – – – – – – – – Views
alphainventions.com – – – – – 41
- The referrer number of views is just too high!
- 41 hits from one referral is just too much (not my nyjoomla.wordpress.com website)
Let me know what the fuss is all about.
Target of inquiry: alphainventions.com
What is alpha inventions?
Brief explanation from: http://alphainventions.wordpress.com/2008/09/22/alpha-inventions/
Alpha Inventions is far from a robot, because it’s controlled by the visitors, and blog publishers. If you don’t publish a blog nobody will see it. If nobody is on alphanventions.com nobody will see the blogs you published or updated. Simple. It was coded this way to avoid being a spam site. Once the site has grown more, I will get more into the coding part with you, so you can better understand how it works.
Just like any blog reader who has the pattern of reading someone’s blog, I checked out the General Settings:
Blog title: Alpha Inventions
Tagline: “A brilliant ideas for bloggers
Concept keywords: Random Stimulation
Reaction: Ah! technology
Just like anybody, I checked out the “About” tab.
The about page has a brief explanation that says, “Alpha Inventions is an experiment to connect webmasters (bloggers) together faster.” I’ve also noticed that there are at least 39 comments in the about page. Thirty- nine comments with only few words in the About page is quite impressive.
I also noted that the article “What is Alpha Inventions?” has 891 responses!
It has a YouTube video too! Brought to you by alphainventions.com.
