That was a great conversation so I got curious about how people find it. I looked it up in Google Analytics for Jan-Feb.
It must be a very hard query to stand out in because "maths fun" returns 665 million results. 🤯 It makes you wonder if a title like "How popular teachers make maths fun" would let more or fewer people to discover it?
My guess is the first paragraph of the first post is really important to capture the interest of the strangers who wander in off the Internet. If they get interested and stay awhile, that's a strong signal to Google that this is a good conversation worthy of high placement in their search results.
