XHTML Friends

Traffic from somewhere…

XHTML friends suddenly had a lot a of traffic… Not sure where from though. But when I checked today the number of sites added jumped from 900 to 1100 and the number of queued sites went from 200 to 1000! I’m making it crawl them all now 🙂


Google Adsense is getting very clever

<![CDATA[I was over at XHTML Friends looking at the info for this site and noticed dance ads. At first I didn't think anything of it, I see dance ads all over this page. But thenof course it occurred to me there is not a single mention of dancing on that page. It gets better when you realise there isn't even a direct link from that site to this site.

I was ready to put it down to coincidence, but noticed ads relevent to the sites I was listing on their pages…

That is very clever 🙂

By the way,the site in question doesn’t even need to be displaying Google Adsense themselves (so it’s not even cached ads either; they’re being gnereated live for my site about another site).]]>


Ooooh, ICBMs…

Did you know some blogs contain ICBM data? That (as I’ve now discovered) is a euphemism for latitude/longitude. Well XHTML Friends now displays a map for sites that provide the data 🙂
