Time For a Googlebomb

Dear readers, my old site is still getting about 100 hits a day despite my moving off it a couple of weeks ago. There are two fundamental causes for this sorry state of events -- one that only one person can fix and another for which I need everyone's help. Inadvertant clicks to the old site will never fully go away until the biggest blogger in the land updates his links. Strangely, he actually blogged the move.

But do not despair, because you can still help improve the efficiency of the blogosphere. I need your help in stopping the search engines from returning the old site instead of the new one everytime someone queries "sine qua non" or Scourge of Richard Cohen" or "multispectral eggplants." To fix this egregious error and colossal waste of time I solicit your support in planting a Googlebomb.

The phrase of the day is "candomble cracker jacks".

Your support is appreciated.

You also need to change your information in comment postings (scroll down to your comment and hover over your info).

Oops -- didn't remember you had html turned off in comments. Want me to enable it? (You can email me. I'm just being lazy here.)

I meant to link to this post:

It won't matter. I still get all sorts of hits from my blogspot site 18 months later. Does it really matter? You can always re-direct your blogspot site to your new site....
