Referrers

I love looking at my stats, seeing what appear to be perfectly legitimate referrers, and finding that that do not in fact link here. This is expected when it’s a spam or commercial site that’s somehow generating referrer spam, but some of these are simply blog posts on regular blogs, even rather old posts. Weird. I gave them what they sought, presumably, by clicking back there. I usually ignore them, even when the look legitimate. I can’t imagine I have real readership yet, the way I did once Upon a Time, especially given the range of topics and scope of focus so far. But hey, search might bring some people to specific posts and they might want to link. You never know.
