Speaking of web searches, I have noticed something strange ever since we posted our tribute to Rebecca Black, the Internet sensation. It turns out that if you search for “we we we so excited” on Bing that our post is the second result returned. It used to be first, but after two weeks Bing must have decided that iheartalkradio.com’s tribute was more relevant than ours. Clearly Bing has no understanding of humor. We were also the top result for “we so excited” but we have since slipped to the bottom of the first page. We aren’t in the first two pages on Google, so I have no idea where we are in their results.
What does this mean? It means that our “We We We So Excited” post has the most hits of any of our entries, even if the people who land here hoping for some Rebecca Black info are probably so so so disappointed. It also means that Bing results are either crap or genius, depending on your point of view. The third thing it means is that if we want to generate more traffic, we need to be topical. It has to be meaningful commentary, though. It would be bad form to just list stacey dash, carlisle, adhd, drugs, the game tv show, wiz khalifa rolling ..., brooke burke, espn, honda cbr250r, winrar download just because they are the top Google trends at the moment. It wouldn’t be any better to just list top Twitter trends like #indvspak , #uknoyoughettowhen , #idontunderstandwhy , RIP Jackie Chan, Arts Council , TRANSMISSION GAGAVISION, Poonam Pandey, Saeed Ajmal , José Alencar , UDRS, either. You can be sure we will avoid those types of transparent attempts at traffic generation.
