stimpera

Ok. My curiosity has gotten the best of me. Google tells me that I get visits every weekday from someone who finds me by searching for "stimpera." I would think that this was, in fact, our friend Stimpera, except that these visits come from here in my fair city, and not there on her fair island. Anyone care to shed some light?

Huh. On further analysis, I think that these visits actually come from *me.* But I don't find my own blog by searching for stimpera. I think somehow Google Analytics remembers that I once searched for stimpera (and learned that my blog comes up, which will be even more true now that I keep writing stimpera) and from then on, has attributed all my visits to the keyword stimpera. That's kind of annoying, don't you think?

Yeah, that's how it works--if you find a website once by doing a Google search for a certain term and then following it to that website, then all future visits--even if you just type in the URL--will be attributed to the same referring page. If you clear your cache/cookies, however, your visits will no longer show up with that referring Google search.
