Help Me Raise My Stats?

I wasn’t going to do this because I’m a private person BUT I’ve decided to put a “widget” on my page that shows my stats.  Stats are like a report card of how my blog is doing.  How popular it is.  Ah, it’s like highschool all over again.

Most of what is listed there has to do with “backlinks”.  The idea is that if I am interesting, lots of people with blogs (or not) will want to tell people (online) about my site and they will post my web address on their page somewhere.  What actually happens in real life is that blog people sort of get to know each other and make a concerted effort to link to each other.  Kind of phony but that’s how it works.

People actually used to BUY these links but after about 100 years of this (I exaggerate), google got wise (got tired of the complaints) and started penalizing website owners for cheating.  Still, many of those owners made literal millions cheating that way.  Imagine if these suckers actually had to do real work.  They’d probably jump out a window if such a fate were forced on them.

Anyway, I hope I’m not being boring and/or selfish but I was wondering if you guys and gals would like to help me raise my stats?  We could watch them go up together.  It might be fun.

    Ummm….depends on what kind they are. Google is getting strict on this sort of thing and you get penalized if you try to game the system. The links have to be related to van living or homelessness or something related. If you feel like helping me Geezer, if you think a post I wrote would be helpful to someone you could post it on a forum or another blog related to the subject her. Survivalist blogs would probably work too. This would give me backlinks and would also bring new people to the site . Thanks very much for caring!

    The other purpose of links is to learn by , examples , style , subject ( would you believe there is one by a “hobo stripper ” writing , and other links. This all would give you something to ponder
