Baffling popularity

Something I can’t figure out is why one particular post, out of the hundreds I’ve blogged, will suddenly get a rash of hits.

I’m not the least surprised when the Hellboy Chronology gets a lot of hits; it’s consistently been what most visitors are looking at. But in the last 30 days I’ve had a ton of hits for one particular Doc Savage post, covering The Derelict of Skull Shoal, The Whisper of Hercules and The Three Devils. Not that I’m complaining, I just have no idea why that particular post would draw a lot of attention in a short time span.

Is there some particular interest in one of the stories I reviewed? Are people recommending the link to each other or just stumbling on it?

And then Tuesday I discovered a lot of hits for my post on Alan Moore’s use of the Golliwog in League of Extraordinary Gentleman. Has that become a topic of discussion somewhere online and people began googling the topic. Or what?

Believe me, I’m happy to have you here however you found me (I’m assuming you didn’t immediately go “darn, not what I wanted” and click away). But I do wonder about the whys and wherefores.
