Click-Through Rate Page Views per Visit – SEO and GSC

This is Part 5 of Web page ranking and search engine optimization : SEO Click-Through Rate (CTR) vs Page Views per Visit – The first is high on Google’s priority list, the second apparently not so much, leading to Google ignoring 94 percent of the traffic to dads&things, or does it?  Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Google Search Console (GSC) help with sorting some of that out. Click-through rate (CTR) is the ratio of users who click on a specific link to the number of total users who view a page, email, or advertisement.

Conundrum : SEO rising Traffic falling Web Rank

This is Part 3 of an examination of Web page ranking and search engine optimization (SEO). The conundrum of SEO, increasing traffic and declining web rank caused me to send out a help request (SEO: search engine optimization). That opened a Pandora’s box.  With that help request, I posted  a graph that illustrates the nature of the problem.  The following is a more recent version of that graph. That  Google Analytics for WordPress had all along shown only a tiny fraction, only about 2%, of the actual daily page views that the host server indicated per its version of Google Analytics data did not bother me so much. Nor did … Continue reading

Facebook prevents posting of comments

Update 2019 03 28: The inability to post comments to Facebook has been resolved. On 2019 03 27 I experienced that Facebook prevents comment posting.  It does not appear due to ill will.  Some would consider it a glitch, even though the problems began in the morning and still existed at night.  One was the inability to view comments that were posted (at least the originators, someone else and I, thought so), and the other was, perhaps, but not obviously, the inability to posts comments. I will just publish some examples here and keep doing so, until the problems get resolved.  It would be a shame, having tried to put … Continue reading

Speed test : Censorship is free speech

“Welcome to the new Orwellian world where censorship is free speech and we respect the past by attempting to elide it.” The introductory quote, Censorship is free speech, is from the article indicated here: Shall We Defend Our Common History? February 2019 • Volume 48, Number 2 • Roger Kimball Roger Kimball Editor and Publisher, The New Criterion At Imprimis, the free monthly speech digest of Hillsdale College. The article relates to the oppression of free speech at universities. It speaks for itself, rather well.  Here is the opening: The recent news that the University of Notre Dame, responding to complaints by some students, would “shroud” its twelve 134-year-old murals … Continue reading

Google Analytics web stats : Fraudulent or just seriously wrong

Part 2 of Web page ranking and search engine optimization : SEO Google Analytics web stats may be fraudulent, or they could be just seriously wrong by accident.  I will explain in this what I mean by that, based on some impressions I gained during close to two years of search engine optimization that is coming to the close. No outsider can figure out why or how Google does things to come up with web- or site-stats that are as terribly wrong as those illustrated in the graphs shown next, a little farther down.  Keep in mind that, as I explained in the first part of this write-up, in July … Continue reading

Canadian budget makes Andrew Scheer unhappy

The Canadian budget makes Andrew Scheer unhappy.  He offers some comments about today’s budget announcement. I was unable to post the following comment to Facebook and hope that you will be able to access it here instead: As of now the opinion polls indicated a clear gain for the Conservatives, and a loss of appreciation of the Liberals. So far, the polls do not reflect the impact of the promised escalation of spending (another $41 billion that will have to be paid back out of tax revenues in the generations to come). Obviously, PM Trudeau is wrong about a lot of things, but right now he demonstrates, that – contrary … Continue reading

FB responds to need for help without having been asked

Updated 2019 03 13 8:54 pm: Added post script. Earlier today I noticed that FB has a problem and posted a comment about it. Right after I posted it, I talked to my wife and asked her to look up on her phone what I had posted.  She could not, I could not, and both of us could not find what I had posted about the problem, but, miraculously, the missing original posting is restored to its full, shining beauty, except for the ‘likes’ it had received and the comment I had added earlier.  Those were still missing.  I will try to see what I can do to restore them. … Continue reading

International Men’s Day vs International Women’s Day

Updated 2019 03 07 6:23 pm: Appended Google Trends Compare: IMD vs IWD, Breakdown by Region. “Woman’s work is never done,” man’s work ignored. It appears that the celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD), taking place annually on March 8th, usually runs on for about a week, after which the celebrations of Marxist identity politics that favor women will gradually taper off, to settle at a somewhat higher level than they were at before the promotion of IWD was raised to a fever pitch. The annual cycle can be observed in the following graph. Notice that, in the United States, interest in IMD outranked interest in IWD for the first … Continue reading
