5 minutes of fame

Well not really. :P Anyway, I logged into Google Analytics out of curiousity. I hadn't been posting on this blog for a bit so figured that very few people were even looking. But there was a big spike in visitors on October 1st. I wondered what the heck happened to cause that. I noticed next that the most frequent referring site had become massively.com! :o Upon further investigation, I see that my blog got linked in an article there! woot!

Heh, an extra reward for attaining that Undying Title! Thanks Syp! :D Though I wouldn't say it made me crazy to get it. It was a nice challenge that took cautious gameplay...which is a bit tough for a warden when you want to grab 4-5 mobs at a time. ;)

Hi!

Congratulations of your mention on Massively! :) And of the title!

Just a question: which tool on Google Analytics do you use for Blogger? I can only find their Wordpress tool on the site.

Hmmm, been a while since I set it up. I want to say I just had to add the url I wanted tracked? I'm looking through analytics and not seeing anything related to Blogger. I do remember it being really easy.

I added Analytics to mine like this: http://www.eblogtemplates.com/how-to-install-google-analytics-on-blogger/

except that I added the tracking code to a sidebar gadget (the one for just adding html/javascript) instead of the actual site template, so it doesn't get wiped if I decide to change layouts.
