Increased Traffic!
« on: April 03, 2006, 03:17:18 PM »
Though we are still a "baby," we have progressed slowly throughout the months. Recently, we have switched to a "frequent" updating policy with the aid of two great editors, dheu and Sorrow-kun. This has dramatically increased our daily traffic by 40%! As seen from the trend, if we keep this up, we will eventually reach new records (for us!).

Jan  750
Feb 887
Mar 1115  !!

The daily traffic has increased from 30-40 unique visits in Feburary-Early March to about 60-70 unique visits Later March-April. This is a tremendous boost!

Yeah!  Go team!

Everyone here has done an awesome job.  The website is uncluttered and easy to navigate, and it just looks nice.  We've also got a lot of good, high-quality reviews, especially of series and music that are not as common.  I think if we keep things going as they are and continue to put out those interesting and well-written reviews, we'll only keep growing.

And that's my 2 cents.

I see the amount of traffic coming to this site increasing even more in the future as well.

I think we've got something going here.  If we can keep up this steady stream of updating throughout the summer and school year, then our numbers will continue to grow steadily.  Slow and steady seems like our best option.  We're way better than our site visits indicate and it's time the rest of the internet realized that.

Keep in mind, 3-4 of those unique visits are me.  :)

W00T!1!! <--Note: First and Last time you will ever see me use this.

That is really awesome. I can't wait until we get traffic like that on the forum (or can I...).
I fell off the wagon and now I can't stop.

You mean so we can talk to and harass all our readers?  :D

SK and dheu definitely deserve all the praise for this though, as it was their constant updating and revising that's made this all possible.  Thanks alot guys.  You've been alot of help.   :p

Ummm... Unique visitors are unique IP's that have visited the site in a 24 hour period. So, one computer is one unique visitor. So unless you visit the site from 3-4 different computeres, you are just 1 Unique Visitor.

And congrats NR, you guys are doing better and better and catching up after the name/domain change.

Congrats.

IN BEFORE DT LOL!!!!

New month.  Even though our number of unique visitors was done in June (1340, compared to 1348 in May), I consider this month a success.  The reason: our number of visits reached a year-high of 2808, up a considerable 20% on our previous high for 2006 (April), and up a massive 74.5% on January.  That's great, since it means, even though we aren't getting quite as many unique visitors, the ones we are getting are returning more often.  The question is, can we sustain this massive growth for the rest of the year?  My bet is, probably not, but our aim should always be to continually improve.

It couldn't be that people don't have school anymore and a certain admin returned.....

But enough pessimism, I'll take it as good news and hopefully we'll keep improving.  The new layout should help.

We improved again in August, if only slightly.  A bit of a surprise, since I thought this month was fairly quiet.

We got less "pages" and less "hits" this month. This trend shows that the readers are reading mostly new content. Which could also say that we are not getting a lot of new visitors. I think it's about time we got that advertising thing going.

Well, while we have less unique users, we have more pages viewed.

I think this means while we don't have a lot of people, we have good quality content. and thats about 60 unique visitors per day, which isn't bad.
