Pinch and a Punch it’s the First if the Month

My monthly review of the local blog popularity, click on the link for the statistics http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/910/id7.htm anyone having trouble understanding them can post a comment and I will do my best to explain whatever they don’t understand.

I have no intention being anything other than Mr Boring here so recommend that you don’t read on.

The statistics above are acquired by pasting a code into the homepage of the blog this works rather like the http://thanetblogs.blogspot.com/ site I wrote to pick up comments on other blogs and is independent of blogger.

Blogger have just started producing their own statistics, once again password protected so I have to copy them for anyone interested see http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/910/id8.htm

As you see the figures are different and I have no idea why, computers and the internet are like this.

According to Wikio this the 742nd most popular blog in the whole world you can go to http://www.wikio.co.uk/blogs/top and check out any blog you wish to, just paste the blog’s web adders into the search box e.g. http://thanetonline.blogspot.com/ I am afraid to say though that I just don’t believe this information.

Where the internet is concerned any ridiculously over blown compliment I view with the deepest suspicion and now spam, out of hand comments that just say things like, fantastic blog.

In the secondhand book world the number of charlatan, swindlers, scammers whatever you like to call them is defeating the world of online bookselling. Back in the halcyon days of 1998 when I first stared buying secondhand books online, the proportion of unsatisfactory transactions was in the order of 2% now it is a serious problem.

No comments:

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
