My dear friend Mr. Fab started a campaign a few months ago to try to get more people from China to visit his site. Why I’m not really certain. I think it was just an interesting challenge for him. He really only tried on and off for a few weeks and from what he said he didn’t have that much success.
I, on the other hand, have been having lots of visitors from China. Mainly on my reptile related site but I do think I get more visitors from China on my Feverishthoughts network that Mr. Fab does right now.
Why am I writing about this? Well the other day, last Saturday I think, my husband Chris wrote a story on Odd Planet about how Swingers clubs are becoming increasingly popular in Singapore. We both thought it was an interesting story, but lets facing it, there have been a lot more interesting and funny stories on Odd Planet than the Singapore Swing story.
To our surprise, when I was checking the site stats for my small feverishthoughts network of sites I noticed a huge increase in visitor rates over at odd planet beginning on Sunday. I investigated to see what was going on and I found that over 800 searches for Singapore Sg or Singapore Swingers had brought people to Odd Planet. Monday there were about 600 similar visits. Tuesday maybe 300. So it’s slowing down, but that’s a huge increase in visits for just one simple little post.
Right now, the top search terms for all of the feverishthoughts blogs combined are:
united sg swingers 636
united sg swinger 182
sg swingers 35
sg swinger 16
united sg swingers website 13
hugh laurie snl 78
hugh laurie 14
photo scavenger hunt 12
Now, the Singapore swing post went up on Odd Planet at about 7 am on Saturday, and the stats are for the whole month, but obviously all the swinger search stats have occurred between Saturday and 6 am Tuesday morning … so four days, there were 882 swinger searches, and even more hits between reading the post and visiting comments etc.
Why did I bring up Fabs quest for China earlier? Well, I also noticed an increase in visitors from Singapore, malaysia, Hong Kong and China – so fab if you want more visitors from China you’d better write something controversial and maybe Kinky about china and see what happens. Ok?
One other pleasing benefit of looking at my stats? The four sites that are live on Feverishthoughts.com – Tricia’s Musings, As the Garden Grows, Breath of Life and Odd Planet are getting bookmarked a lot! A full third of the visitors to these sites are adding them to their bookmarks. Thank you! You like us, you really like us!
