So a couple of weeks ago I wrote a blog post about google bots and how they trawl the Internet collecting information to better index stuff on the web.
I also mentioned that I was pretty sure that those first couple of views you get when you list a new item were more than likely bots.
Well last week a strange thing happened to me that has never happened before. I listed a new item, there she is below.
And for every view I had a heart! Now as far as I am aware Bots don't give hearts so that meant that every one that viewed my item was a real flesh and blood person.
At one point though I had more hearts than views which I didn't quite understand as surely you have to see the item before you can decide to like it. This really restored my faith in the Internet and in people too, but then it made me think.
What is it about this item that prompted so many hearts? Was it the photo? The setting or background? Was it that I listed it in a different category than normal, thus attracting different viewers?
I have no idea but I am happy that finally I have made something that people like. The next step is to make something that people like enough to buy...lol.
