Funny shit with the “referers” links

So one of them was “”

That’s right, “Am I Hot or Not” for goths.  One of those websites you just gotta go look at when you’ve been drinking a little and are hanging out with friends.  Mostly it’s funny (and, if you like blue hair, not all bad), and just… weird.  Are these people that serious?

Bizarre . . . that’s all I can say. I didn’t even know that “picture rating site” like that existed. And now that I do, I must run and hide.

Damn, showed up again.

And Andrew, somebody got pointed here through a Google search for “taoist thought”. Does that make you proud?

It does make me proud! I’m sure said searcher was probably sadly disappointed, but nonetheless!

Wow . . . Pigeon Rank is kind of strange . . . So are computer people, though, I must imagine.

I’ll have to try the Textile link sometime. Particularly when I get my hairless kitten. 🙂

How exactly does Google rank the sites it finds? I mean, there really aren’t that many references to the word “taoist” are there? (And, yes, I realize that with every comment to the conversation we’re adding the word more, and more . . . ). Was this really high enough on the list of websites that somebody came here? Or are there so few sites on the subject (which I find doubtful) that Google felt that this was a good match?

The PageRank system is pretty bizarre, sometimes… I refer you to “Pigeon Rank”:

Looking through my referrals logs, the search string accessed an archive page of my forum.. my earlier draft of my *Expressing my Taoist, Monist View*. Poor guy, just got one deluded rant, when he probabyl wanted something like “Taoism Information Page”:

(p.s. if you want cool links like that in your comments, click the Textile link above the comment box and it shows you how to format stuff really easily)

Just read a fascinating (if lengthy) essay on disruptive technology and the future of scientific publishing. Well worth the read!
