Man, I’ve been looking at the stats over the past few days (year 2007)… it’s unbelievable that I’ll have a million page views soon… Lately they’re increasing at the rate of 90,000 – 130,000 per month. This is excluding rampant bots that were grabbing my pages at the rate of a half million in a week!
If you think your stats are increasing – might be due to robots… check that out.
Finally it’s all kicking in for TP… but still too slowly for my mind. In my mind things were rocking from day 1.
At my AimforAwesome.com blog it’s going even much better than ThaiPulse is… that’s weird. I guess it has a lot to do with the market. The market for that site is worldwide – anyone that can read English. Anyone that wants to be inspired or just read something partly fun partly positive… partly bs.
Here at Thaipulse- it’s hard to get a readership. There are only 100,000 expats living in Thailand – and that estimate was pulled from a loooong time ago. Many changes since then. Anyone want to guess how many here now? I don’t have a clue…
There are a couple good Thailand expat bloggers out there now and I think the potential exists to pull something like 500 readers per day for a blog like this one. I know Jason at IsaanStyle was doing 300 readers per day when he was with the ThaiPulse network – on our servers…. 500 per day is ok, but it’s really not much in the big picture. Considering…
I have 306 posts on this blog – and some of those posts are LONG winded. That’s a lot of text and time.
I have only 40? posts at my AimforAwesome.com blog – and that one is kicking ass already.
Writing long-winded opinion posts here is a waste of time because only 200-300 of you are reading them. There I have more than 3 times that reading everyday.
By the time I get (or if I ever get) 300 articles written over there – should be a nice amount of traffic coming.
How about the other bloggers out there in Thailand… anyone getting more than 500 readers per day if you’re blogging about Thailand?
Trying to get things in perspective today…
Thanks in advance for any response!
