It’s painfully obvious… I’m on Google’s badboy list.
I don’t know what I did, but I went from having ~160 unique visitors a day to half that. I think that it’s because I didn’t feed the beast! I wrote and wrote and then stopped suddenly and after a few months, Google said, “Screw you little website, we don’t want to hang out with you anymore.” So… poof!
The number of pages I had indexed dropped from the high 50s to 35 and even a Google search on “figure margin” where I used to be #1 out of 4,000,000 results… is all gone. That’s even with a link on Wikipedia!
It’s been an interesting ride, but since Google Adsense won’t accept BrianShoff.com because it’s “too personal”, I’m not really losing any money. As a matter of fact, I’m saving bandwidth.
I’m hoping it’s just an update that they’re tinkering with. It was nice seeing regular visitors hit the site. Makes you feel popular… like everyone wants to hang out with you. hehe
Oh well… WE DON’T NEED THEM! We’ll have fun by ourselves!
Screw all the people trying to find my website. The Google bouncer has stepped up and said, “You’re not on the list”. So now I’m starting a new elite, SEO club, “Those Who Know”. The only people who can find my site are the people who already know about it.
Obviously, it’s a select group of people and very exclusive. So whatever you do, don’t tell anyone else about it (cheap, but inevitable Fight Club joke in… 5…4….3….2…1) YOU DON’T TALK ABOUT THE THOSE WHO KNOW CLUB!
Let them live their lives in the stupid Those Who Don’t Know Squad. Those losers, we don’t want them anyway. They’d just cramp our style and drink all of our beer. Oh yeah… there’s beer… if you already know where it is…
Don’t know? Ask a Knowaloti. If you can find one. They are very secretive and live solitary lives. They sometimes known as “coders”.
Meeting adjourned. You can pick up your membership pins at the door.
