I'm a Little Jealous

...of my other blog.

This blog's RealRank hovers around the 2000 mark- sometimes as low as 1300 or so, and sometimes up to 2400. Imagine my surprise when I visited my other blog (one of them) yesterday to see a RealRank below 1000. Today it's 659.

I mean, I like that blog, and I post interesting things there - interesting to me, anyway. But I don't post nearly as often over there, and I definitely haven't promoted it much. I don't even have an Entrecard for that blog, though I've been meaning to get one. So, what gives?

The best I can tell is that I wrote a post about free blog backgrounds, and there are a lot of people searching for free blog backgrounds, or cute blog backgrounds, or free blog designs - and, starting last Wednesday, they've all been finding their way to my blog. A few of them were coming before, but suddenly there are a whole bunch more. I have no clue what changed.

I had someone visit today who searched for 'bird sounds to drive cats crazy' - good thing I had an answer for that, too!


  1. Regardless of why - congrats on the traffic and rating.

  2. I find that when I drop my 300 ecards for my kids blog, my real rank goes down. I actually had it down to 450 a couple of weeks ago, then my computer freaked and I couldn't drop, and it went back up to 1200. Now it's down to around 550, and goes down more each day I drop. I don't know why it makes a difference, but I guess it does, somehow. My kids is a n/a, and my craft blog, that I never promote, is a 2. I haven't figured that out, either. Most of this is just so confusing.

    Oh, and I didn't even know you had another blog!

  3. Which other blog, you have several?

  5. WhoooHooo congrats on the traffic!!

    It makes me consider the fact that I have a handful of posts that are months, even years old, those are the ones that get the most search hits. If I start posting about those topics I could totally improve my rank.

    But then it would ruin the blog as it wouldn't be a true reflection of me, but a reflection of my greed.


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
