National Standing On The Side Of Love Month 2012 And The Emerson Avenger Blog's Web Statistics - What's The Connection?
In that The Emerson Avenger blog did not receive a whole lot of new visitors as a result of people running Google searches for -
Standing On The Side Of Love Month
even though a TEA blog post titled 'In National Standing On The Side Of Love Month 2012 A Free & Responsible Google Image Search For A Unitarian Standing On The Side Of Love. . .' appears on the first page of results for such a free and responsible Google search for the Truth and meaning (or indeed lack thereof. . .) of Standing On The Side Of Love Month. That TEA blog post is currently ranked at number 7 but that Google ranking may change in the coming days, months, or indeed minutes. . . In fact The Emerson Avenger did not notice a whole lot more persons of inherent worth and dignity arriving at The Emerson Avenger blog as a result of running searches for various permutations of the phrase Standing On The Side Of Love than he normally sees, which does not mean to say that TEA did not see a significant increase in the number of visitors to the TEA blog over the course of National Standing On The Side Of Love Month 2012. . .
The last time that I reported on the number of visitors to this blog it was averaging about 80 visitors per day over a period of several months. In fact, The Emerson Avenger blog's web statistics show that, for the two year period between January 1st, 2010 and December 31st 2011, the TEA blog received an average of 65 unique visitors per day with the average number of page loads being slightly over 100 per day, which *I* think is a fairly respectable figure in light of the fact that this blog deals with the injustices, abuses and hypocrisies of the clergy, administrators, and lay leaders of what UUA President Rev. Peter Morales described as "a tiny, declining, fringe religion" in his now "memory holed" sermon titled 'A Religion For Our Time'.
So The Emerson Avenger was pleasantly surprised to see 2012 get off to a really good start with a significantly increased number of visitors to the TEA blog in January and February of 2012. Although the number of visitors had been steadily climbing in the latter part of 2011 and early January 2012, this number of visitors has been almost exactly double the average number of visitors for 2010 through 2011 over the period of the last month, which of course corresponds with National Standing On The Side Of Love Month. The average number of unique visits has been 123 persons of inherent worth and dignity per day and the average number of page loads has been 201 per day. Not bad for an alleged "tiny, declining, fringe blog" about the lamentable injustices, abuses and hypocrisies of "a tiny, declining, fringe religion" that few people seem to be interested in these days eh U*Us?
The Emerson Avenger hereby extends a personal thank-you to the 3,942 persons of inherent worth and dignity who chose the fate of visiting The Emerson Avenger blog during National Standing On The Side Of Love Month 2012 aka Thirty Days Of Love for that wonderful Transcendentalist Super Hero known as The Emerson Avenger! ;-)
