Technology: More Keyword Goodness

So I have had another apparent peak of activity here, with the number of hits soaring...

This time I have not even went into trouble (and expense) of donating to a good cause and leaving links behind. A quick look at the page most visited yielded an answer that was as quick, and it came in two halves. Go there yourself and see if you come up with the same conclusions, one sad and the other not so much. OK. That's enough time (you could've just peeked at the URL). Of course, the sad bit is that these days everything to do with Apple seems to generate quite some commotion. Try it yourself! Especially around the times when rumour mill is in overdrive a good sprinkling of Apple, iPhone, iPad, Steve Jobs, and other related words will give you more hits than usual. The other half of the answer is even less surprising, and is as old as Internet if not older. You knew it already anyway. It's porn. Good old pornography, the main engine of Internet and its development. Something that most people have on their minds most of the time. And before you cast a first stone, do ask yourself is it really, really possible for a sad minority to generate huge majority of Internet activity. And then put that stone down. So yes, the second half of the answer to popularity is to sprinkle your musings with at least vaguely porn related keyword. Like "bondage" in this case. And in conjunction with Apple, my, was it a hit!

Now, just to come up with another good combo...
