I hope it’s the latter, of course 🙂
So, the auto-curation experiment continues. It just gets better and better. Here’s a breakdown of results over the past week:
|Page Loads||Unique Visits||First Time Visits||Returning Visits|
|Day||Date||Page Loads||Unique Visits||First Time Visits||Returning Visits|
|Monday||23rd April 2012||358||289||281||8|
|Sunday||22nd April 2012||250||165||161||4|
|Saturday||21st April 2012||148||120||118||2|
|Friday||20th April 2012||273||136||130||6|
|Thursday||19th April 2012||184||162||160||2|
|Wednesday||18th April 2012||42||37||37||0|
|Tuesday||17th April 2012||18||16||15||1|
|Monday||16th April 2012||22||15||15||0|
Two things are pleasantly surprising about all this.
- The number of repeat visitors seems to be trending upward, and
- The number of page views vs. unique visits is fairly good. That means at least some visitors are exploring the site rather than just walking in.
Remember, this is all being accomplished with duplicated and curated content – something that is not supposed to work in the post-Panda era. Wahoo.
So, now it would seem that I should add more content to the site for that “stickiness” factor. I am so busy with other varied projects right now, but I should be able to get something done. Videos are always good, and music could work. Amazon bestsellers, perhaps (that would be a piece of cake). I like the idea of exploring other stuff like artwork, tatoos, t-shirts. Let’s see how it works out.
I’m not planning to do any planned back-linking any time soon. I think I’d like to just gradually explore my options and see what works (experiment, ya know?)
Shameless plug: If this experiment piques your interest, and it should, you are seeing my creativity and genius at work. I’m a programmer with over 30 years experience in multiple areas, and I am available for hire (WordPress – hacking, themes, plugins; PHP, Internet Marketing, you name it). Use the contact form in the footer area to reach me for requests or JV’s.
And, as always, the donation box is in the sidebar. A couple bucks will do 🙂
