Horst Prillinger says

by Suw on November 24, 2003

That if you mention Michael Jackson in your blog, you get lots more hits. I am, obviously, only reporting this as an item of interest, and not in anyway am I trying to artificially increase the number of hits my blog gets, even if this month I do look like I might break the 10,000 hits per month barrier for the first time if only I could get a few hundred more hits in before the 30th.

I would like to publicly state that I would never sink so low as to make spurious namechecks in the hope of googling higher on certain key phrases. For example, I would never use the words 'matrix', 'reloaded' or 'revolutions' frivolously or in any context other than a serious discussion of the Matrix trilogy by the Warchowski Brothers. Obviously. Goes without saying.

However, I do believe that it's important to say that Horst got his information about how mentioning Michael Jackson's arrest raises your hit count from Hetty Litjens, who says that Doug of Doug's Dynamic Drivel had noticed the 'Michael Jackson Arrest Effect' only the other day.

Personally, I find it hard to believe that mentioning Michael Jackson in the same sentence as the words 'arrest', 'accusation' or 'molestation' could possibly up my hit count. Oh no. Not at all.

Right, well, glad that's been cleared up then.

So no point in mentioning the arresting developments in the Michael Jackson case, then? OK, I won't mention Michael Jackson. In fact, I think everyone should give the whole matter arrest.

You cheeky monkey, can't fool me. Next you'll be saying if you put some sexual type phrases it will get more hits.
Good idea though. Entry about Mr. Jackson coming to my blog soon.
