Checking up on Reluctant Nomad

Every now and again, I like to see if there are any other Reluctant Nomads on the web. There are several, one of whom seems to have a better claim to the title, and was the subject of my second post.

Another reason to check is to see how my rankings have increased on the various search engines - yes, yes, an obvious sign of a blogger newbie who wants his attention-seeking nature recognised. I began appearing on the top of search lists for a number of search engines a couple of weeks ago but Google steadfastly ignored me. Until yesterday, that is. It's rather satisfying to be recognised by Google now and to see that references to me appear before any of the other reluctant nomads that exist out there.

It's also interesting to check the referrals to my blog - yes, I know that I have too much time on my hands! Usually they're from blogs linked to me but sometimes they come from web searches. Today I've been referred to by a search for 'reluctant men' by MSN Search. I submitted the same search - and I got this at the top of the search list. Warning: not suitable for office-viewing.

Just in case you get the urge to delve into that site, I can categorically state that I do not appear in it at all! More's the pity!

Fantastic, what a titter.

I'm sure I recognise your hands on some of those pictures :0)

I think you need to learn the acronym NSFW, Mr. Nomad! :-)

But I have never been NSFW, have I? But, you may have a point there....perhaps I should mention that the site isn't office-friendly?
