Middleburgh Site Logs

Originally this site was intended to be an open letter to my sons. So once it's objective was met and we resumed "normal" communications, postings lapsed.

The boys considered the site“naff” and it also scandalised the senior Middleburgh matriarch who questioned editorial policy and my parentage. Apparently the site refered to a matter of public record, which surprisingly she had no prior knowledge and with which she didn’t want to be associated.

All this came to mind this week, as I reinitialized the site logs in preparation to giving the site a much needed “make over”.

To put traffic in perspective: The last posting was made last May whennthere were an awesome 4 hits/day, mostly blogger “drive by’s” and search engine “drop ins”. Thereafter traffic collapsed and by February we bottom'd at a staggering 1 visit every other day, with the exception of a spike in October when the night porter caught up with his reading. Traffic has recently lifted as a result of site maintence.

Although the site has never been SEO’d, at least 2 cousins and an ex colleague have stumbled onto it. Its worth consdering that if you google “Middleburgh” approx 794,000 results are returned , most of which are for Middleburgh Scholarie County NY; Even if these are excluded by filtering results containing “NY” or “York” there are still 22,900 returned. Cousin Charles Middleburgh's home page comes in at position 2 in Google and 6 in Yahoo. I don’t even get in top 100 for Google although I get positions 8 & 9 in Yahoo. Thumbshots

The following tables, based on the last 100 hits since 4 February excluding hits due to me, give insights into where visitors come from and what they are interested in. There is no evidence of queueing to inspect Middleburgh family skeletons.
