Behind Those High PageRank, Alexa and Technorati

I was once an SEO slave. I wrote deceptive titles to get highly ranked on Google, Yahoo and Live. Honestly, it was just another intelligent cut and paste job.

Popularity is Bad

I was once ranked below 200,000 in Alexa. It’s nothing if no one really reads my blog.

I was once given a Google Page Rank of 6. What’s the point if sapiens doesn’t understand a word I wrote.

I was once in the top 200 sites in Malaysia. Popularity will fade away.

I once received 3,000 unique visitors a day for the entire month. It’s pointless if they don’t leave comments.

I already hit 400,000 visitors and almost fried my bandwidth. It’s an insult, 65% of them scattered away within 5 secs.

I wrote NoktahHitam for my kins. I wanted to embed the repulsive me into words. The kind of words that would require them to think. I could be asking too much.

To all those ranks, hits and traffic I’ve gained, F* it.

ps: I realized aeropama‘s writing is just like NH’s, only in Malay

pss: I admire SembangKomputer‘s effort. Computer is not about Myspace, Friendster and Facebook.

  1. That’s unpleasant! After I ditched SEO, my bounce rate is 35-45% which is better than last time, 72%.

    We both want our thoughts to be heard, so SEO have to be put aside. Unless you’re writing a splog.

  2. You want people to visit your blog through your comment? Think and write a lengthy and brilliant comment. People will follow you.

    Another way is to argue with them. They will get the,’apehal plak mamat ni..’ or ‘macam bagus sgt..’. They will then visit your blog. After the followthru execution, you must back your saying. If not, you’ll be another hated blog/ person. But if you can live with that, why not?

  3. Betul tu.. Kita akan berasa puas bila ada org sudi membaca artikel yang kita tulis.. Mungkin komen itu boleh dianggap sebagai satu penghargaan buat penulis.. BTW.. sejak aku mula berblog.. aku mula mendapat banyak info.. sebab untuk menulis blog, perlukan fakta.. bukan auta..

  4. susah nk reply. sbb xde butang reply dah!

    @aeropama – haha. lawak ko. mane ade pheromone. akoo hanya memuji kecantikan kurniaan illahi je. kan perempuan suka dipuji. tp jarang akoo puji dalam belog sebab akoo kena sedarkan mereka dengan cara keji.

    @noktahhitam – hehe. budak bio bang. biasa la akoo. kalo jwb xem lctrr pun mau tendang akoo. satu page 2 para. maka terbawak bawak ke alam belog.

    @nikkilas – nickname ko dah mencermin ko perempuan. kalo NH 60% ko 90%

    sape lagi perlukan komen? meh akoo kasik. ske betul akoo komen kat cni. masyuk.

  5. big number makes me happy, of course. it means that a lot of people stop by every now and then, people that are interested in knowledge.

    and oh, thanks for the backlinks ^_^

  6. agak lah.. memule aku igt ko pompuan, bile kuar gravatar, loh.. bold gile bubuh gambo balak. Setelah En Google menyuloh, baru aku tau ko ni lelaki โžก

  7. fuh… aeropama.com watak utama.

    aku tak check lagi bounce rate blog aku, tapi aku tulis mostly untuk syok sendiri, tak kisah sangat lah.

    it’s disheartening (and insulting) sometimes when think you write good stuffs but no feedbacks.

  8. So SEO kena buang? I need to uninstall my SEO plugin then, for I want to poison as many unsuspecting minds as I can reach out there. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    So, buang SEO eh? Then hits from search engine will reduce? Anyway I think you are right, what’s the point of having so many hits when they don’t stay and read.
