250,000 Visits

Keeping the spark alive

At 8:29 am ET today, The Curly R welcomed its quarter millionth visitor, a Mac user in Oklahoma dialing in on Cox cable internet, there was no referring uniform resource locator, which usually means our honored guest dialed up the site directly or from a bookmark. In the world of website traffic analysis, lack of referring URL is good, it means the visitor came directly to you and not from another link. Which is pretty much what you want when you have created a site you want people to visit.

Curly R achieved this traffic milestone in 1194 days. We welcomed our one hundred thousandth visitor in 739 days, back in August 2008 just after our second anniversary. Curly R secured one point five times that traffic total in the next 455 days, or two thirds the time. Our curve is still heading upward.

Thanks to everyone for stopping by.
