Manalaa.net is Better Than Google.com

The users who are redirected to my blogs from Manalaa.net are much better than those who are redirected from google.com or wikipedia.org. The point is that when a user come to your blog from some search engine, it is most of the time that he/she is searching for something, and your blog address just pops up there, even when what's in the blog is not what he/she is looking for. This is one of the search engine problems that they are trying to overcome by using social networks and tags etc. While on the other hand users who come here from manalaa.net, reddit, or any other blog aggregator, they are those who have some time to spend in reading, and looking for something interesting to read. That's why they spend some time in the blog, and may move between two or three different articles there, while those from search engine just get in and out in no time. You may notice that, when you see people spending more time in your blog in the days when you publish a new article there. While on the other hand the number of users doesn't increase much in such days. I.e. the quality of visitors increases but not their quantitiy. Tags: , ,

  1. I always wondered why we have to know who visits our blogs? I am one of the people who always like to track visitors and am amazed by some people. But I am wondering about the reason is it curiosity about who is listening out there? I have to be honest that sometimes I just need a place where I can just puke my thoughts out. *Sorry didn’t find any better express*
    Peace

  2. First of all, thanks Sarah for commenting here, because you comment has lead me to your nice blogs.
    Actually, I am a bit different than you - ok, we both like metal and alternative rock music - because I really like to know who is reading my blog. Ok, I cannot write anything unless I really feel it, but on the other hand if no one is interested in what I write I may then think twice before writing again.
    Also I like to know what people like, for my general knowledge.
