Comments - Two things happened that might have affected crude number of page views - at the half yearly mark we may have slackened off the edginess or intrinsic interest value of our posts. The holiday effect if you like. We could also put this down to rotten cold - about worst we've had, a lingering little monster (also affecting such as Monica Attard and Juanita Phillips on ABC we notice). On the other hand alot of the pro political community took time out for holidays too so perhaps less audience for this fodder.
Secondly, we fixed our email address to a cut and paste, hopefully bringing down the bot crawlers grabbing it for spam email rackets which might affect page view numbers also? We are also learning to build a better 'newswire' with spill over page for long older dated posts which means we are getting more reader friendly. Even saw a compliment on Sydney IMC - oh my God a miracle.
On the up, the editor is close to 100% fit, ill mother is getting better we hear, 1 year of tea total has the synapses bursting with electrons, so its onwards to God knows where for the SAM news website.
