Huangyangtan - Slowing down
It appears the Huangyangtan thing has been slowing down for a while now. All the measurements I take show that, well, perhaps everyone who is interested in this has heard of it by now. Before it dies out completely, don't forget about those PayPal contributions to FeedMyGEHabit@yahoo.com; the RAM upgrade is not quite paid for and Wife wants some results!
A couple of things I have learned while monitoring the news:
- Google Search Results -- When searching on "Huangyangtan" the results vary. At one point a high of 38,900 results came back. Today it stands at 28,900. The number fluctuates on about a 24-hour basis, usually going down a bit if it has gone up a significant amount. I'm guessing the Google database consolidates its finds overnight.
- Technorati -- Searching here shows the number of blogs that contain the word Huangyangtan. Twice the total has gone up to past 300, after which Technorati would suddenly report the next day that less than 200 blogs mentioned it. Both times it happened overnight between a Saturday and Sunday. I'm guessing that Technorati moves the time period it considers.
- Adsense ads - You have to accumulate a lot of visitors in order to get some clicks, at least here at this blog. Since I don't have any numbers for comparison, perhaps I'm even more successful than others and just don't realize it. It is common knowledge you have to have a lot of foot traffic just to get a few hits.
- The guppies are still alive.
- The Noisy Family children are still alive, despite the apparent murder attempts by either or both of the children and/or by the Doberman.
