'Bare' With Us

I have learned an interesting lesson in cultural blogging today -- if you write about a really hot topic, especially involving sex, then you can expect to get a whole bunch of new readers via search engines. Captain's Quarters has recently been averaging between 50-70 page views an hour during prime time (around 40 unique visitors). Today, however, after writing about the Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake Boober Bowl halftime show, I have been receiving over 300 page views an hour from referrals from search engines.

Don't get me wrong; I like getting new readers, and I hope that all of them take a longer look around the blog to see if they find any other interests here than a grainy picture of a 37-year-old's right breast (which is not posted on this site, but you can go here and tell them I said hello). I'd just hate to have so many of these visitors never check back in, and I hope the increased traffic isn't keeping regular readers from accessing the site. This is the reason I never posted about Paris Hi1ton or her video -- it's not representative of what I do with the blog.

So what would be representative? Take a look around, and if you like what you see, bookmark and/or blogroll me. Hope to see you back here soon. In the meantime, good luck on your searches.

I was wondering why I was getting such a spike in traffic from your blog.

Now I know.

I'm with you. I'm dubbing it The Boob Effect and am about to blog on it. I have a snippet of the video which has been downloaded more than 1,000 times..at a meg a pop, that's a load of bandwidth. Comments are up to 35 on one post, 10 on another.
It's insane.
