I have seen you somewhere before

So I cleared out 733 duplicate graphics using this handy little tool, and I’m not quite sure which concerns me more: that I had 733 duplicates, or that I had only 733 duplicates, given the vast number of graphic files on hand. (I am disinclined to count up all these directories and subdirectories, but I broke the single directory “eyecandy” into five separate directories simply because it was getting too big, and by “too big” I mean “more than 10,000 files.”)

    this reminds me of the SEO nightmare i endured trying resolve duplicate title tags. and, now that i’ve messed with my template and am a do-follow blog, my traffic from search engines is zero. i traded that for do-follow people and have no idea what i’m even talking about.

    pardon my tangent.

    Because the search engines, home of Strange Queries, decided that you had duplicate content anyway and dropped you to the far end of the lists, down next to the guy who put up a MySpace when he was 15 and hasn’t seen it since.

    At least, that’s the usual excuse they give out.
