It's an Eviliz world

I'm just rambling here. ..

Being in the internet business I pay attention to trends and internet traffic across a variety of websites. Over time it has made me a stats junkie - even on this blog.

In reviewing stats for a few minutes each day I've noticed out of the thousands of visits we get daily - some extremely loyal readers in cities like Doylestown PA, Richardson TX, Sioux Center IA, Frackville PA, Richmond CA, Waukesha WI, Bronx NY, Lenoir NC, Virginia Beach VA and Seal Beach CA to name just a few. These are imprints that I see EVERY day.

I'm equally awed by the loyal readers we have in international cities like London, Paris, Sydney, Melbourne, Madrid, Stockholm & Munich.

But the ones that really give me a smile are the daily visits we get from loyal readers in far out places like Jakarta, Islamabad, Moscow, Abu Dhabi, Bangkok and one in Skopje Macedonia! Freakin' Skopje!

Thank you, everybody. Liz, Patty & I appreciate each and every one of you.

I noticed I was getting a lot of hits from Russia for my blog, which I thought was cool, but unlikely to be genuine. After doing a little research, I believe that they are spam machines.

ANDY- I didn't receive anything from you. My address probably changed since we last chatted.
1967mansonfamily@gmail.com

Rod, these Moscow visitors come every day and visit multiple pages. Def not spammers

Rod Foglio said...

That's cool Matt. If you look at the traffic sources, you can tell which are spam sites (Myhealthscore.com, etc). It's nothing to worry about if they're not spamming up your site though.

Y'all should consider renaming your site - no offense Liz. But if you had some of your keywords in your url, you'd really improve your nature search. 

andy said...

i resent it liz

Panamint Patty said...

@andy: I read "re-sent" as "resent" and got a good laugh! I frequently resent Liz. Just kidding.

Matt said...

That's the way I read it, too. I couldn't figure out WTF he resented. LMAO.

I am not sure if anyone noticed but Matt DID change the site name maybe 2 weeks ago.
We went from
Eviliz's Manson Cult
to
Eviliz's Manson Family Blog.

If you have any suggestions send them to Matt or myself and ty.

I DID notice that change Liz. But I was talking about the url specifically. Google puts great importance on your url title when determining page rank. For example, if your site's url was www.manson-family-today.com (I know, I know, it's just an example) you'd get tons more traffic because thats something the average person would possibly search. But because you don't have anything related to the Manson family or Tate/LaBianca in your url, you're missing out on a lot of traffic.

Just searched "Manson family today" on google and your site was the number one result. Ha, shows what I know.

Your getting as bad as me! LOL
Matt is the brains of the operation, Patty and I are just the beauty. I was like hey did Matt not put Manson in the new name?

It's ok we still love you anyway.

Would love to know who is coming from Bangkok, given I'm in Hong Kong and I go to Bangkok all the time.
