Usage Statistics to date

 Enclosed are the newest usage statistics on the site which I think are quite impressive –

chart

For November we had 2.3 million hits, a significant increase over October, despite the problems with the hosting company which resulted in the site being down several times during the month. The total number of hits since we moved on July 19 is now 6,366,052. Thanks to all of you for continuing to support the site.

    I love the fact that bloggers like the site enough to log on every day to check out what new posts we have. You and everyone who posts here are the reason the numbers keep increasing month over month, despite the access problems that we have been having.

    The thought never entered my head to monetize the site because I started the blog to have fun and that would change how I perceive it. This site has made me many new friends and I value that. Plus I have seen how ugly some of those ads look. Of course I won’t say no to Sony if they wanted to offer me a deal like the one DA has, but I don’t know the gals at DA so I can’t ask them how they managed to get such a sweet deal.

    • I totally understand! I’ve experimented with Google ads (being the captialistic nerd that I am) and have had my problems in that Google brings up ads based on content, and since all my content is fiction reviews, I always get ads for iUniverse and children’s books and even Christian inspirational fiction publishers — none of which is a good match with gay erotica, ha, ha!

      As for the Sony deal, if you would like it, you should totally approach the Sony people with your stats and ask for the same deal they gave DA. Believe me, your stats are impressive and might just open the door to a sweet deal. I tend to think of this site (in terms of high traffic stat-wise) as the DA of the m/m world. 🙂

        I laughed out loud at the thought that your blog had ads for children’s books and Christian fiction. I wonder what the advertisers thought?

        I wish I could approach Sony but unfortunately I don’t have an email address for anyone in that organization in high enough authority to make such a decision. The only email addresses on the web are for low level PR types who wouldn’t have a clue.

        Maybe some day I’ll ink a deal with amazon for Kindle ads. 😀

  • This is outrageously good news! (Yes, I’m a website stats nerd.) Considering how this site only reviews m/m, I love what the proves about interest in our genre growing exponentially. And, Wave, in reference to what Ingrid said, did you ever think about monetizing the site with Google Adsense ads or something like that? Why not profit from all your hard work? 🙂
