I don’t typically look at the WordPress admin dashboard site stats, but it’s there. Sometimes a funny item pops out of the “top searches” display. What the heck was someone looking for when they put that into the google box? And how did they end up here?
This I saw last night:
I of course knew the item because I put it here…
Most of the GIFS we grab and share from giphy et al, are derived from video clips, and are generally automated so that there is a frame for like 0.3 seconds. When you look at them (if ever) frame by frame, many are repeated or show little change. I just tried to show how you can really shave tons of weight from them by knowing how GIFs work.
And what could be a more fun reference than 70s sitcom TV?
Anyhow, I had to check, and sure enough, my GIF and post are on the front page of The Google!
Pretty much celebrating my corner of the web, eh?
I probably should not have looked, but that result indicates a ton of people (or bots) followed that search result here. Massive numbers!
Barely above the number of people searching over the year for “grandma’s split pea soup”.
I’m a big fish in my little internet pond. Stats be damned.
