Strange Moment

Hiya,


I'm still at a loss as to how to understand Google Analytics, so I was having another play in there. 

I found a part that records traffic in real time.  It was a little creepy, slightly voyeuristic, because you could see where people were from and what they were reading. You could also tell what keywords brought them there.  Then it dawned on me, they were all reading the same thing.

There were three different keyword phrases, then a fourth came in.  All surrounding the same subject. 

It was the 'Vanished Without a Trace' review, which was a dramatization of a real life event.  Twenty-six school-children were abducted, with their driver, off a school bus in Chowchilla, in 1976.  I suddenly went cold.  Are they all looking because something similar has just happened?

I checked Google news and found the cause.  Fox News have something called 'Fox Files', which has just aired.  It was all about that incident.  Apparently some of their viewers are now on Wizzley reading the review.

Just a bizarre moment for me.  It's let me see something in real time that I've only heard about before.  And it's made me glad that I watched the film and wrote about it!


yours

Jo

ut oh Morpheus, she's figured out she's a cog in the machine... do we tell the squigglies so they can unplug her or do we let her continue changing the world?

Agent Smith: Let her continue... she may prove useful keeping the human minds entertained and in contemplation...

Construct dude in the all white suit: Agreed...

Happened to me over on HP - (not the seeing in real-time on analytics bit). I wrote a hub about 'What is a bigot?'. The next day I had hundreds of hits and I only realized why when I saw the News - Gordon Browns faux pas (UK former Prime Minister [unelected]) regarding a female voters comments.

The world works in mysterious ways!

I reckon there must be 'something out there' - Loci is my guess.

You guys are freaking me out a little...

but I saw that Fox program advertised and wanted to stay up past my bedtime to see it.

Instead I just read your review Jo.

We're all in trouble, if Loki is at the helm!

Glad to have helped you get your beauty sleep, Dustytoes.  Thank you for reading it. <3
