After a steady stream of visitors to Biking Illinois and this blog for the past few months, it looks like things have cooled down. For a 24-hour period earlier this week, Feedjit logged only my own visits to this site (I reload it when I post to make sure it looks okay, and occasionally just to see who's visited lately).* There were apparently hundreds of applicants for the search evaluation job that used my site as a test. Thanks to those who posted comments. I hope at least a few of you managed to get hired.
This chart shows the pageview history for this blog over the past six years. I don't know what caused the spike in October 2012, but the search engine evaluators started visiting in March 2013. Notice the nosedive into July:
* I set Blogger to ignore my own pageviews, but I don't know how to do that for Feedjit.
