Here are pages 42 and 43. (Spread 20)
I decided to start calling the spreads “pages” now because I don’t like that Google’s number 3 keyword for my site is “spread”. In case you are wondering why the page numbers don’t quite match up to the spread number, it’s because I’m using the page number of the printed book just so I don’t get confused. Worry not, you are still seeing all the pages here.
How to get 10,000 unique viewers in 3 days.
So if anyone wants to know how to get 10,000 unique viewers in 3 days, then write an article about how much you love or hate Comic Sans MS and submit it to a few sites. A warning though. With great arguments comes heated comments. Not so much on my blog but on the websites linked to my article.
Most of the negative comments came from my statement that people will hate you for using Comic Sans in your comic. Now I know the truth, may people will hate you for talking about Comic Sans no matter what the context. So to please all the haters, I have changed my statement from “many people will hate you” to “many letterers will want to dropkick you.” I hope you will take me seriously from now on. I never joke. Comic artists don’t exaggerate anything. EVER.
I was going to compose a top ten list of hate comments from other sites linking to my post but it would be to hard to weed through. Plus, some are so vulgar it would make a drunk navy trucker quiver. So I decided to share one of the funniest comments I read among the rantings. And here it is:
“Comic Sans is based on Watchmen. Why do you hate Alan Moore?”
This quote truely sums up the power of the internet. I laughed, I cried. I scratched my head because, Wow!
First of all, Watchmen was written by Alan Moore, not lettered by him. Dave Gibbons lettered Watchmen and in an interview with him he says Comic Sans is “an appalling-looking font” and “Comic Sans is so ugly” and “The major sin about it that really bugs me is that it only includes the uppercase I, the one with bars on the top and bottom, which as you know, you only use in comics for the first-person pronoun.” Read the interview here.
With all the opinionated controversy behind me, it’s time for my next subject. Why Mac’s are better then PC’s. ha!
I finally got my Page Rank back!
I’m sure there are a number of you who love this technical stuff like PageRank and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) but I am mostly clueless about making my site stand out on search engines. From what I know, search engines like Google, rank websites depending on things like who and how many links they have going to them. The more incoming links a site has the higher the page rank. The higher the page rank, the better chance that site has of being displayed in a search with similar keywords.
Before I switched from Blogger to WordPress, my site had a 3 out of 10. Shortly after I switched, it dropped to 0 and I couldn’t figure out how to get Google to know I had switched. Apparently I didn’t submit a sitemap to google. My IT guy helped me and a week later my site was recognized by google again. I now have a 3 out of 10 page rank. The funny thing is, I still had the same amount of traffic after dropping to a “0” as I did with a “3” from before. So now I’m trying to figure out why. It seems like many of you understand this better then I do so maybe you can shed some light on it. I also read that there is a difference between a PageRank and a page rank. So confusing. Anyway, I have a 3 now and I feel better about myself but I’m not sure what it’s really doing for me.
