So, Kato…are you talking about my debut on the Net?
Oh, yes, of course.
Don’t be silly, Kato. How could you possibly make my début on the Net?
I’ve done it already.
Rubbish! You’re talking nonsense, Kato!
Well…look at the GOOGLE images search below:
【Diane Kato Himiko’s monologue】
What about the above image search?
Well…you see, Diane…your pretty pictures are spread over the Net.
Only 94 results. You can’t say that I’ve made my début on the Net, can you?
In that case, look at the your favorite toaster in the above list. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, …
What about my favorite toaster?
Well…, your favorite joke is already taken by the Google Web crawler.
What about the above joke?
Well…, the above joke is jotted down in the “Net Revolution” article written on July 14, and the article has been already in the Google search result.
【”Net Revolution” Diane Kato】
Are you telling me that you’ve posted the same article on 151 blogs?
No, not all results are my pages, but more than half the pages in the above list have been posted through the Denman Syndicate.
What is the Denman Syndicate?
I post the same article on a dozen blogs, and my faithful robot posts it automatically on another dozen blogs for me. I call the network of those blogs “Denman Syndicate.”
I see…but I wonder if net surfers are actually reading your articles.
Oh, yes, my articles are well read. Look at the list below:
I captured the above screen on July 8. The latest record is the previous day’s access record. Take a look at the red-rectangled day, which is July 6. That means, the access data is for the article posted on previous day—July 5.
What is 2183 PV?
2183 stands for 2183 page views. 336 IP stands for 336 IP addresses, that is, 336 visitors on my blog. The figure in the last column says that, on July 5, my blog was on the 2533rd position in terms of the number of visitors out of 1,604,939 blogs in the Japanese GOO group.
So, on July 5, 336 visitors read 2183 pages on your blog, didn’t they?
Yes, they did.
What is the title of the article on that day?
Look at the list below:
“Complicated Love” is the title of the article on July 5.
You see, Diane…some surfers are interested in what you’re talking about on the Net.
How come you’re so negative, Diane?
…’Cause, I don’t think, not many people are reading the above article.
You’re wrong, Diane…On July 5, 336 net surfers read the “Net Revolution” article, which appeared on at least 24 blogs of the Denman Syndicate, if not 151 blogs or web sites shown in the above GOOGLE search result. Let’s suppose, 300 people read my article on average. That means, 300 people X 24 blogs = 7,200 people a day. You see, Diane. Quite a few people!
You see, Diane…in the age of internet, people living thousand miles apart can communicate each other as if they lived next door.
Do you really mean it?
Yes, of course, I do.
Oh, yeah. Look at the screen image below:
This is the screen image captured on April 25, 2011.
Is this your blog?
Yes, it is. Look at the green bar on the left-side column.
Live Traffic Feed
The list shows the recent ten visitors on my blog at the time.
Only ten visitors?
If you want to see more, then click the following bar in the above list:
Real-time view Menu
When you click the above bar, you’ll see the following detailed list:
Wow!…there are so many visitors from various countries.
That’s right. The above visitors came to my blog from 11:29 AM to 1:38 PM on April 24, Vancouver Time—approximately for two hours.
The visitor on the top of the above list is you, Kato?
Yeah, that’s right. Under me is another Canadian visitor from Tronto. You can also see an American visitor from St.Louis, Missouri.
The flag seen under the American visitor is of France, isn’t it?
No, it isn’t. It is the flag of Thailand. The visitor came from City of Zapote in the state of Alajuela. Under this visitor is another Amerivan visitor from Bridgeport, Connecticut.
I see a visitor from Seoul of Korea.
Maybe, the above Korean visitor is learning the Japanese. You can see the French flag under the Korean visitor. The last visitor of the above list came from Liverpool of Britain.
Are you saying, Kato, some American and British visitors came to read your blog written in Japanese?
I can’t tell for sure, but probably those American and British visitors are Japanese, who are family members of diplomats or Japanese employees working for the Japanese trading firms over there. In any case, my blog is located in the server in Japan while I’m writing articles for that blog from Vancouver, Canada. And visitors come from all over the world. The above list is only for two hours. Daine, do you know what I mean?
What is it?
Well, as soon as I’ve written an article, people from all over the world could read it. Let’s suppose, Johannes Gutenberg printed a book some 500 years ago. It would probably take at least a year or two for the book to reach Japan or Canada. But now, as you see, people from all over the world could read my article in a jiffy after posting it on my blog. This is why I call this the Net Revolution…And another thing!
What is it?
As the above list shows, the Japanese visitors came to my blog from 3:29 AM till 5:38 AM (April 25)—most of the Japanese were deligently sleeping. You see, some Japanese net surfers are crazy. And some of them are after you, Diane.
You’ve gotta be kidding, Kato.
No, I’m not…I’m quite serious…’Cause you’re becoming the Mona Lisa on the Net. He, he, he, he, he,…
