Photos of Korean Transexuals like Harisu = big site traffic

Damn. After cresting at more than 1,000 hits on Thursday, traffic’s now returning to normal. With a mere 422 hits yesterday, I hang my head in shame.

It taught me a big lesson: The more photos of gorgeous three-quarters naked Korean transsexuals I post, the more visitors I’ll get.

I figured out what the increase in traffic was about.

Google changed something about the way it returns results. So some sites went down, and some, probably like ours, went sky high.

It makes sense.

I bet Conrad had a huge increase in traffic (from people looking for boobies) and we saw some of that. Plus having transexual korean babes on your front page doesn’t hurt either.

Good eye, Adam. I knew there had to be an explanation somewhere.

Sigh. It was nice while it lasted.

i’ve learned that the way to get many accidental hits is to post on an assortment of topics, covering everything from korean transsexuals to the uniformed japanese girls (these two representing the only topics most of these google trollers think about anyway).

i’ve seen people arrive at friends’ blogs via searches as bizarre as “how+to+stop+vomitting” and “me+fucking+my+mother”.

Adri, it’s pretty amazing — as you were typing your comment, I was scouring your site, making sure Conrad hadn’t made some rash decision (it’s been known to happen in the past). Great blog. What are you doing in Singapore?

what rash decision could conrad make?

hmm. i’m in singapore because well, i was born here and i live here. if all goes well, i’ll be getting out pretty soon. it’s not a bad place to live, even though many things about this place get to me.

so, what are you doing in singapore? (we love foreign talent, i know, especially our goverment.)

What am I doing in Singapore — now there’s a loaded question! Truth is I arrived here somewhat by happenstance and, like you, would like to like to catch the next flight out. It’s not that Singapore is a bad place; I have written very warmly about it in the past. But the current economic situation is too grim, especially for someone in a service industry like me. Something has to happen to pull Singapore out of its deep rut, but I can’t imagine what it’ll be. HK got rescued by its relationship with China. SGP isn’t that lucky, and after years of being the King of SE Asia, a new reality has set in. And I don’t like living somewhere where everyone’s worrying all day about whether their job is going to be there when they wake up in the morning.

What a depressing answer; I’m sorry. Your point about “foreign talent” is quite funny, thought it’s the kind of joke that “you have to be there” to really get it. Funny, because in every other country at the moment the mantra is “local talent.” But then, not every country exists to fulfill the vision of Lee Kuan Yew….

You’re right, as king of southeast asia for these decades there’s this sort of complacency that is going to run us into the ground even more than any grim outlook possibly could on its own.

I think it’ll take a massive push to jolt us back into reality. I want to leave not because of the grim economic prospects, but because I really can’t stand to join the truckloads of local undergrads with the “I have a degree and that means I should be employed” mentality.

But the best thing about this place? “First world” hygiene (in most places anyway), “third world” prices; food, especially. And that’s about it. Everything else – including our work ethic, manners, our herd mentality – remains firmly in the third world.

Adri, I’m going to pull this out of the comments tomorrow and do a separate post about it. Too tired tonight.

Really nice to meet you after all this time!
