Ludwig von Dracula Posted March 2, 2011 Share Posted March 2, 2011 If you use academia.edu, you may have been getting these email notifications: "Someone just searched for you on Google, and found your page on Academia.edu. To see the search query they used, what rank you are on Google for this query, and what country the search came from, follow the link below." I just got one today and it's driving me a little crazy. The search was from the United States this afternoon, and it's definitely me they're looking up, as the search was for "myfirstname mylastname very specific and obscure ethnic group that I'm studying." I'm still waiting on two schools (including my top choice), although the results board indicates that they've both sent out acceptances already. Still, I get a little fluttery feeling when I see that somebody is evidently still interested in my file. It could be somebody at one of my acceptances trying to decide if they should fund me, which would also be nice...I don't see any way that it could be non-academic, but maybe my imagination isn't big enough. To make matters worse (better?), each time I've received such a notice before has shortly been followed by an acceptance. Anyway, I just thought I'd check to see if anyone else has experienced this sort of thing. False hope, or reason to be optimistic? Just one more forumite slowly going crazy via overanalyzing EVERYTHING?!? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
