I’ve been pouring over my site logs but until a few hours ago hadn’t been able to figure it out. In fact, I was about to go to the actual raw logs, which record each and every file requested… millions per month… when it began to make sense.
You know about Google‘s main page, but there are offshoots as well. One of them categorizes just about all the images on the web.
In my case, somehow a photo I took of Elena Dementieva, playing at the Pilot Pen in New Haven, got onto the bottom of the first page.
That photo, over the past few days, has brought more traffic to my site than my home page!
Traffic is good. The more people who sample parts of the site, the more people will read my little entries.
In the meantime, this mystery is solved.
