The continuing saga of the Former Naval Person blog and web traffic

The Former Naval Person blog seems to still not be getting any Google North America traffic. I was determined to see what could be done without Google's help. Something busted loose today, and traffic is at least 50% higher than what we have recently seen. If Google would relent and send traffic our way, we would be back at two or three thousand per day. We shall see if today is fluke or a sign of things to come. As usual, IndexTools shows higher traffic than SiteMeter and both are higher than Google Analytics. In fact, Google Analytics is giving some really strange results. We seem to be getting most traffic from direct links, with Yahoo image search coming in second. Google Analytics seems to totally miss that phenomenon and that may account for the lower count.
