I’ve got into the habbit of checking Google Analytics daily to see which search phrases are used to find my site. Most are related to mobiles, 24 or E4 however this one caught my eye: 20mph wheelie bin.
So I got Google to tell me which search engine was used (Yahoo) went there myself and tried the query. The results showed that I’m fifth 🙂
However what was disapointing was to find a Mr Stephen Tall first!
I’m sure my blatant attempts to use SEO tricks will force me to be top before the end of the year.
ps. if anyone knows exactly what was searched for please let me know.
Having finally got a chance to use a real computer instead of my phone, I’ve been looking at the webstats.
On the Monday of Conference last year there were 10 posts appearing on LibDemBlogs, however this year on the Monday there were 84. Whilst I don’t think that there were many more computers available, more people seem to be taking the time out to blog, or even use their mobile phones to post whilst in the conference hall.
Looking at the hits and visitors to the site, last year saw no real increase whilst conference was happening, most likely due to the fact that the regular readers were at conference. However this year I have a nice spike on the graph, with an increase in hits of 38% compared to last week, which is nice.
Blogger Peter Black (and Welsh AM) manages to get a post turned into a full BBC News story
The Lincoln Liberal Democrats celebrate getting their second councillor on to Lincoln Council.
Thanks to all those who voted for me, and to all those who went out and delivered my leaflets.

I’ve created a LibDem Flickr Group as a central point for people to share (and steal) each others photos to be used blogs, websites or foci.
Alternatively you could just have a look at the pictures.
You can only add pictures if you are a member of the group. So feel free to contact me with your Flickr username to be added.
Today at Conference somebody from the BBC News website asked me a few questions.
Some of my answers can now be found online.
Posting as a grassroots activist who has been backing Charles to stay as leader, I now say it is time to go.
It’s now obvious that Charles hasn’t had the support of most of his front bench for almost a year, and that he has been ignoring their requests to stand down. It’s a shame that the gang of 11 didn’t have the guts to send their letter before Christmas or call for a vote of confidence before now.
Instead as a party we are left with a leadership election of one, who will have no shadow cabinet.
Hopefully by Monday morning we will see Charles stand down and Ming, Hughes and Oaten put themselves forward to start what we will an exciting leadership contest.
