Our first month
« on: May 26, 2005, 03:22:08 AM »
I'd say we've had a pretty good first month, all things considered ^_^

Kilobytes Transferred: 3,304,206 (A little over 5% of our allotment)
Raw Hits: 1,581,906
Raw Files: 496,078
Raw Page Views: 276,594 (Averaging a little better than 9,000 per day)

We seem to be getting around 200 unique visitors a day on average.  The real number is hard to determine for various reasons - this is just a best guess.

Right now there aren't a whole lot of visible links pointing to Elliquiy ;_;  That will probably get addressed over the next six months while search engines and directories add us.  Slowly.

Huzzah for Lilac! * pours lilac into a pool at the little altar, swirling it so a soothing scent comes from the little pool.

Coooool. Thanks for the update, Lilac! :D That said... well, imagine for the sake of argument that I'm a complete idiot totally unfamiliar with how the Internet works. Would I be right in thinking these data indicate Elliquiy could grow by, say, fifteen times and still remain stable? Is that better than you expected at this stage? Is that worse than you expected at this stage? How will future changes to the site affect bandwidth usage? Can we ourselves help make the site more efficient by doing something differently? Should I be wearing pants when I ask these questions?

Whatever the case... thanks again, Lilac! For everything! You're sweeter than a ninja! :D

If you build a content-oriented website and get to 10k views a day in a year, you're doing good.

We can grow quite a ways.  Ten times the users could mean twenty times the bandwidth, however.  Or thirty times.  Simply because people making posts means people reading posts, so it doesn't scale linearly.  If it really gets out of hand I figure I can look into ads.

Well, since over a hundred posts have been deleted, which should I count? O_o

Ah, but it doesn't count.  I was going by the number at the top of my browser which said it was over 10k posts.   :)

Fine, your last post in the Lord's only forum wins ^_^

For the curious ladies, it reads

"Definitely getting her off.  One, because its a nice prelude to both of us.  Two, because its fun.  And, well, there are lots of other reasons.  :)"
