I’ve been working on my credits backlog that’s directly to related to the nearly-cleared backlog of games to be entered. More new games in MobyGames:
I’ve been realizing the importance of metadata recently. The situation is that text is easy for search engines to gather, index, and search. Multimedia data such as images, audio, and video can not be indexed the same way. The efficacy of indexing such multimedia data is largely dependent upon the textual data surrounding the multimedia. I have always made a careful habit of clearly describing my images in their metadata tags. This is probably why so many searches are driven to my various blogs by Google’s image search facility. This applies to some extremely common search terms, such as the popular (American) term for the game that was the theme of these pinball games.
I was auditing my web logs today and saw that the entry for Bikini Beach Stunt Racer actually got hits for that ‘b’-word search term related to ladies’ swimwear. Even more interesting is that the user agent string included the data “Windows CE; PPC; 240×320” and the referral string indicated a start index of 95. This means that a rather patient individual was searching through many, many bikini pictures on a portable device of some sort, with a tall vs. wide screen.
That reminds me that I have been meaning to produce a series for this blog called, “The Ladies Of Obscure Games.”
