This is not just directed at fellow bloggers but I'm sure you 'gers will appreciate the fun I have each day with Google Analytics and Google Alerts. This might sound crazy-narcissistic but I have a google alert out for myself, as well as anything Gocco, of course. What I have learned about myself is that I am either really good at sports or I am dead--fortunately and unfortunately. Every Katie Stephenson alert is either an obituary or some kind of sports update--softball and whatnot. Of course, I only have that alert so that I will know when someone mentions me or my blog. The Gocco alert is how I keep fresh and up-to-date in the print Gocco world. I get up-to-the-minute updates whenever anyone types the word Gocco and hits "publish." Pretty cool this internet thing. Probably my favorite of all things Google are the keyword notifications in the analytics program. I've learned an awful lot about what you people are searching before you come to me. Someone out there is fervently researching the "Gocco patent" Go, Go--whoever you are! Someone else wants to "save the gocco, please" loved that one-so polite, you are! Probably the oddest one I've seen was the "hard core p*rno u-tube" note. Ehwww. No clue how that one came to me. I hope he (or she) was not disappointed once here. Sorry, I did not want to type the whole word in fear that even more strange traffic would come my way. People seem very interested in the Yudu as a replacement for Gocco, and I also get a lot of traffic to the G.E. #5 Flash bulbs info page and the Gocco pricing info page. Innneresting. What a great tool. If you are a blogger and are not signed up for an analytics program, please do so now. If you use the Google version, it's free! Such a wealth of knowledge, it can't be beat.
