    Nothing of that either, to my knowledge. Also not using Chrome.

    If I type "Baldur's Gate blog" with google, Lilura1 shows up first, declineblog second. Not for you?

    As an example, Google up "Keyword Rank Checker", enter lilura1.blogspot.com and type in something like "Jagged Alliance 2 retrospective". You will see that I'm ranked no.1 on Google.

    Also type in search strings that veterans and powergamers would search for. You will see that I'm ranked between 1st and 5th; it fluctuates on a weekly basis due to competition and algorithm changes.

    After doing that, come back and tell me I have no influence.

    Congrats on being ranked #1 for one super-specific query for a game made 20 years ago! For your information, you come up on page 5 for "Baldur's Gate spells".

    But I'm sure that query is way outside of the range of the 10 super-specific queries your blog ranks high for.

    How about for what semi-intelligent people would search for, though? Type in "best Baldur's Gate spells" and "best Baldur's Gate weapons."

    Tell me where I rank.

    I didn't realize "veterans" needed someone to tell them what the best spells in the game are. I stand corrected.

    If the blog is supposed to have a trillion monthly views why would typical veteran and powergamer searches matter?

    "best Baldur's Gate spells" actually returns 5 instances of a site called "keywordbasket".

    As I said, powergamers are prolific; they are King. People don't search for "balanced" classes, weapons and spells.

    This is currently the gayest thread on the codex. And that's including the cosplay thread with the traps.

    The only criticism I've got of Lilura's blog is that she doesn't specifiy if mods break the rules of the game. Like the Drizzt Saga was reviewed as a mod (that rightly so) shouldn't be taken seriously - but it's a big deal for me if modders break the rules - like that one did by allowing vampires to charm you through scrolls of magic protection.

    Other than stuff like that, I'd say she's the Zhang Ziyi of classic RPG. So just admit it Codex: this place wouldn't be the same without a Dragon Lady. And if she had left, we wouldn't see her reaction to what Larian do with BG3.

    oldmanpaco is more butthurt about my blog than most. See, he fancies himself as an elite BG2 SCS player, but I am the authority on SCS commentary.

    Is that supposed to refute the fact that you write zero useful/original/informative content, as proven in my authoritative write-up? The write-up has garnered more emojis than your blog gets daily views.

    Also, now pls go to google analytics and make a screenshot of how many people enter your website using this search term. My guess is, if you remove all the 5 times you clicked on the link yourself: zilch times.

    "Best bg2 weapons" may have yielded you 5-15 views per month at best, but as soon as the term changes ever so slightly, e.g. "best bg2 bows" your blog is nowhere to be found. You can only appear in search engines through a title. Well that's just pathetic.

    You could've easily been on the first page with terms like "baldur's gate", but I'm not going to give you any SEO knowledge your phony blog doesn't deserve.

    Let me repeat it: it's EMPTY of any commentary, i.e. blogging. Ping me when you write a single decent article in your life, until then I'm out of this thread.
