A Rullsenberg traffic spike

Normally I get around 450-550 visitors per week.

This week I got 896.

Whaaaat?!!!!!!!!!! (To invoke a much-laughed over phrase)

Then I realised it had mostly come between Saturday and Monday. What were most of the searches looking for?

Primeval (reasonable)

Blake Ritson...

Huh?

Then I realised that (1) when Ritson was in The Romantics alongside David Tennant I had been praiseworthy of his broody physique. I thought he would be a shoe-in for Dream of the Endless.

... and then (2) I remembered that Sunday night had seen the screening of Ritson alongside Billie Piper in ITV's dramatisation of Jane Austen. Hence a search for 'pictures of Blake Ritson' placed me in 9th place in a google search.

Suddenly it all made sense.

However, other searches made less sense. Including this one:

"stag do" rules customs

I come up as 6th for this archived post. Those boys doing the searches must be SOOOO disappointed (not to say confused...)

Blake Ritson ain't got nothing on JJ Feild in tonight's wonderful Northanger Abbey.... :)

Ah, the endless fascination of the referral stats. I bet after six weeks solid of having your stats full of Blake Sodding Ritson you'll get fed up with it. Like me with all those bloody wet t-shirts.

I usually only get hits from people doing image searches, but, today, I got one from someone looking for the hilarious Funfair Dismissal joke.
Oh, and I used to be top google search on Escapades night club in Darlington, but I'm down the list for that one now!
