I have sometimes checked how my blog ranks in Google search. At the moment it is 7th link that Google suggests with the key words 'urban patterns'. I must say I am impressed that it has gone so up as my circle of readers is not vast nor have I done almost anything to market my blog.
One thing I have not done earlier is to check Google image search. I was amazed to see how many of my images rank quite high in it. Top images are above. Funnily, about half of them are very recent, from my alpine tour last Christmas. Someone has been viewing them a lot and that is not me. I always try not to visit my blog so that I would not twist the results of the visitor tracker.
