This is the 500th posting since ‘another day on the buses’ was born on the 7th February 2007. The very first posting may be read here. In that first post I wrote “How long will this blog last”. The answer seems to be nearly 5 years at the least.
The previous posting to this is the one about the new BBC homepage. Within a couple of hours of posting it I suddenly saw a huge rise in visitor numbers, a closer look at my analytics showed an incoming link from the BBC itself!
The link appeared on the BBC web page until yesterday evening when it finally scrolled off the bottom as they selected newer stuff to link to. However, I’m still getting a significant number of visitors from google.co.uk who have used the search term ‘bbc homepage’ on which this site is currently in position 13 out 67.5 million results. It just shows how powerful a link from a site such as the BBC is for google positioning. It’s been fun for a couple of days, I hope those who got here spent at least a few minutes having a look at other things, but I doubt they have much real interest in buses and my life.
