That would account for it…

While I don’t really get all that concerned about it, I do keep an eye on my website stats, so I have at least a vague notion of how many people are popping in here, which posts are proving more popular, and all that kind of thing.

I thought that maybe when I’d filled in various options in the Suffusion theme that perhaps I’d left out the bit about including my name in the meta tags. Well, there was that, but it was more the fact that when I copied over the settings from my test site, I forgot to disable the “don’t let Google see this” setting.

I’ve now unticked it, and saved the settings, so I should reappear in Google before too long, and people might start being directed here again.

Silly me  :duh: :duh:
