“Girls go wold”.. and other search terms..

Apparently someone was deeply disappointed after searching on google for “girls go wold” and finding my site. Perhaps they should type a bit slower next time so they don’t hit the ‘o’ instead of the ‘i’ ;). My friend Matt Geri and I were having some fun looking over some of the search terms we’ve been getting.

My site is also getting traffic for the search term “Brian Watkins”.. which is for the site of a good friend of mine at http://www.brianwatkins.net :).

Run a search for “scary websites” on MSN.com and you’ll get a link to The Startup Blog which is a tad odd, but very interesting ;).

So, discounting the few very strange people out there who would look for girls that have gone ‘wold’.. (Any idea what that means?).. I’m very interested in how I would connect my work, through my websites, my writings, etc.. with those who would actually be interested in reading about it. People don’t know to search for my name.. so how can I connect with them?

Every time I talk with Matt, some tip or another out of his wealth of SEO goodness will rub off on me and it gets me to thinking. For me its not just about getting a high ranking but about connecting with people. I want to be able to connect with those who have no idea who I am and who probably wouldn’t care, but can relate to what I have to say and can maybe be inspired.

So! At 2:30 in the morning, I’m thinking about SEO ;). I’m going to be doing some work on my main website.. that is.. the personal website of jonathan/a> :). I have a few subtle changes to make to its look and some major changes to make to its structure. I want to PHP Template a lot more of the site so that making sitewide changes become easier in the future. I did a VERY good job of structuring content, so it won’t be all that painful.. it’ll just be some work ;).

I’m thinking of trying my hand at a Photoshop tutorial! Anyone interested?

Well, I’m off to get some sleep. Ahh.. Yoyo called me today! My phone is completely over its minutes and I found out a little too late that listening to voicemail ALSO counts as using your minutes.. how sneaky is that?! If it doesn’t (I’ll know by tomorrow).. I have some sneaky little person slowly using up minutes on my phone while I’m sleeping.. I have a 1000 minute plan and 2 weeks into the month I managed to use 996 of them.. don’t ask :P.. time zone messed me up ;).

Alright, this crazy kid is off to BED.. Oh yeah, and I had a nice chat with Brandon Watts today before I had to get back to work on Amae’s site. He’s a really nice young man and has QUITE a few accomplishments to his name. I look forward to getting to know him better. We both share a deep interest in writing.

Goodnight world!
