I'm So Stupid It Hurts (getting fucked by Google Again)

Monday, November 07, 2005

So as mentioned before, I realized that recently I was getting less than 1% of traffic from Google whereas a few weeks ago, most of my referrals were through the Google search engine. It only dawned on me today, that the reason why I have had a huge traffic drop is due to none other than blogsearch.google.com/.
Now, to Google's defense, I am using blogger (which is incidentally owned by none other than the big G), which means that now I get dry-raped because I am categorozed as a blog even though I don't very often 'blog' about my shitty life but try to focus more on tech reviews and findings. As a result of google's blogsearch, now everything I post will be indexed only by blogsearch. Fucking wankers! If this is a future trend to come, I will bail and start a new site.

I don't know about that. Our stuff is still indexed regularly in google. It's just that blogsearch updates almost immediately, while Google can take a day or two.

I noticed that in IE you can't even see your posts though. You only see the sidebars. If people are dropping in using IE they may end up just leaving.
