Internet Searches - Are They Dead?

March 26, 2016 7:38am CST
My personal QuirkyScience blog received over 1,000 hits on March 1st. It was a good day. But on other days, I am accustomed to hundreds of visits, say 600. But over the last two weeks, it's taken a huge nosedive! So much so, I'm shocked. This has never happened before. I'm thinking it's a seasonal change, with some shopping, some preparing their gardens, some just sitting outside instead of behind their computer desk. Is that all this is, or is there some new algorithm or other? If so, it should be called Skunk.

I tried to get into blogging years ago and it never held my interest long enough. No one category seemed to fit my mind.

@KuznVinny I trained in science but my mind is all about creativity.

@OneOfMany I understand, or at least would like to think I do. I try to think of how a bond forms as atoms approach, or the processes that may go on within a cloud, and so forth. The thing is, I don't pass them off as science. I would use them to help me head in the correct direction when pursuing science.

Your skunk looks like the pet I had many years ago!! The Internet is like the restaurant business--you can be doing nothing one moment and the next the place is filled up!! LOL

There are echos at the moment. Let's hope there's a loud noise, soon!

Yeah I believe more people go out and about during this time. Most people just browse on Facebook anyway almost all the time they can. Hopefully it picks up again after Easter.

It could be seasonal, what with all the folks going out into their yards and gardens, and traveling on the weekends.

I think it's just a slump. Internet searching is the number one source for seeking info. It certainly replaced going to the library and people who never went to libraries will do research online.

Wonder if it has anything to do with the Easter Holiday?

Most people may be out now since it's a long vacation.
