Tillerman has recently posted that more and more spam comments are getting through the Blogger filter, and I've been seeing exactly the same thing.
Another thing I've been observing is an increasing difference between the statistics from Sitemeter and those generated by Blogger itself.
I'd imagine part of the effect is due to increased use of RSS feeds etc but also I wonder if its because Google, as Blogger's owner, is doing searches "internally" without rendering the page in a way that Sitemeter can detect.
Of course there's more to life that the number of your blog hits.... which is probably just as well!
Thanks for visiting my blog.
While I try to use images that I create sometimes that is not possible and so I use publicly available ones from the internet.
If you are the owner of the rights for the image and would like a link to your site or the image removed please let me know.
