New link, Old links, Geocities closing, and key words in Louisiana genealogy

Yourfamily.com offers message boards. I visited them this morning and added a link under Louisiana Genealogy Links.. These links are all searchable through the Google Search feature. I hope I haven’t duplicated it! (There are way too many here for me to keep a tally. If you find a bad link here, please email me! ) In fact, there are recent messages for Louisiana on Yourfamily.com.

Geocities posted an announcement that they would be closing their web services. I found out through a Twitter! You wouldn’t know of the closure unless you had a Geocities site. The closure of Geocities was only available above your Geocities site file manager! MSN groups posted their closure message in much the same way. IMHO it is a bit deceptive of them. Yahoo claims that you can still buy webspace on Yahoo Geocities, but has no further information about how your newly purchased site will be affected. Did I understand this correctly? Maybe not. You be the judge.

This is the second such closure of online services as MSN shut down its groups in February of this year. Is this a trend? There are so many genealogy sites available on Geocities I do not want to contemplate the potential loss of genealogy information and services… AGAIN. Hopefully, the Geocities webmasters will check into their websites and view the closure notice before they are affected. There were no email notices in my Yahoo Inbox, either.

I’ve added a counter to the blog that also tracks key words, which is interesting. Most visitors do not stay long (90%), but 10% stay for at least 20-30 minutes. Of that 10%, 40 were returning visitors. Here are the results from the key word analysis that give a little insight into what visitors are searching for on the Louisiana Genealogy Blog. I only wish I had the time to research everything queried!

One Response to New link, Old links, Geocities closing, and key words in Louisiana genealogy

  1. Steve says:

    I’ve been compiling a list of genealogy pages on Geocities, in the hope that it will enable people to have a last look before it closes.

    The disruption will be huge — Geocities has been going for so long and is so big that millions of links will be broken on the web, not to speak of the data that will be lost. Some may move their data to new homes, but those who have died or have lost interest won’t bother, and thier work will be lost.
