Current Ranking: 81,613 US Ranking: 57,870 UK ranking: 83,559
« on: January 31, 2006, 01:40:20 pm »
Ahem, Acording to alexa.com gamingsteve (on average is the 70,870th most visited site on the internet.
Info here: http://www.alexa.com/data/details/traffic_details?q=&url=www.gamingsteve.com

Actually Compared to the millions of sites that exist out there, I'm surprised we made it in the top 100,000, let alone 70,870. (Apparently Our peak so far was just a little earlier this month. we were in the top 40,000. Right now we're at 38,303.)

Edit: Figured I'd update the top caption thing.  :)
Edit Again: May as well edit the whole Title
Edit: Well we're now at 26,478.
Edit: we're up again.
Edit: Down a slight bit...
Edit: Low and behlold, we're at our highest yet!
Edit: Finally in the top 25,000
Edit: bit of a drop...but who knows.
Edit: Up Again!
Edit: Looks like we're starting to hit a rough patch
Edit: Still going...down...28,433
Edit: Okay, out of the top 30,000. :-\ Ah well. We weren't even in the top 70,000 when I started this thread. Hopefully the site'll get it back.
Edit: Er...
Edit: (No Comment)
Edit: Sigh, and we had a really Bad week this week. I don't know what's going on. Steve's being mentioned on Gamespot and other high traffic sites (Though strangely not Joystiq as much.), and we're up to 1914 members, yet somehow...
Edit: although if you look at the Daily and Weekly, I think things are starting to turn around. Perhaps the new site updates have something to do with it.
Edit: GULP.
Edit: We're starting to get back to where we were when this thread started. Not that 70,870th isn't a flattering position for any website in this great big thing we call the interweb. Still...
Edit: Technically we have gone up...it just doesn't look like it because I haven't updated in a short while.
Edit: Back in the Top 90,000  ;D ...well at least for now. Sooner the updates start back up the better for the site.
Edit: 84,842. Hopefully it keeps going up.
Edit: Still in the same general area.
Edit(2/18/07): Since Alexadex has recently updated with Specific country rankings, I've decided to update the title a little. One interesting Tidbit, The Netherlands Love Steve: 10,045  Germany, ehh not so much: 442,057
Edit(3/28/07): You can see the current ranks both overall and in the US and UK in the title. Up in the US(Top 20,000!); Down in UK.
Also, Germany dislikes us less apparently: 228,092 Canada, however, can't stand us: 389,565
Edit(1/27/08):We're up!
Edit(2/26/08):Up some more! 74,994.
Edit(3/14/08): 69,464! Yeah!

What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

In the last few months the site has really gotten popular. But this month was totally crazy, with the average ranking closer to 15,000 instead of 70,000 (those first few months are pulling down the overall average).

It usually peaks whenever I write about World of Warcraft (mostly). I try not to write about it too much on the main page, but whenever I do I get massive traffic. So I'm damned if I do, damned if I don't.

I try to balance it out over time, but I will continue to write about WoW as well as other subjects on the main page.

But if you guys ever have anything of interest which nobody else is talking about on the gaming scene, let me know ASAP!!!

Yahoo may be #1 now, but it looks like Google will overtake Yahoo in the near future. http://www.alexa.com/data/details/traffic_details?&range=2y&size=large&compare_sites=google.com&y=r&url=www.yahoo.com

On a side note: Gamespot.com is #223.

Dang, we went down fast today. Ranking in at 278,992th most viewed website today. Well if it swings that often hopefully it'll swing back up tommorow.

By the way, if you want to help the ranking of the site, especially you people who visit the forum every few seconds ;), just download and install the Alexa toolbar for IE. If you have the toolbar installed every time you come to the site it will help out the ranking of the site.

You can download the toolbar at:

Oh yeah, there is no version for Firefox yet. Oh well. :'(

I did some really quick calculations, which, if correct means that in the month of February we should see about 13000 posts and over 500 new topics. Of course I rounded the numbers heavily, so for posts, you could give or take about 500, and topics about 50.

And my calculator see's nothing but record after record  after feb. If it continues at its current rates (which they probably won't, to many variables I had to guess at), I predict we will be around half of "The Elder Scrolls" Forums size, with 100+ users online as an average, in about year. And that isn't factoring in the explosive growth that might occur when Spore is released.

I was right, We did bounce back up. Fast. We're now # 18,594. (Of course steve asking people to download the toolbar may have helped that... :D)

Hey, if HTML worked, we could post the graph directly!

Code: [Select]
<SCRIPT type='text/javascript' language='JavaScript' src='http://xsltcache.alexa.com/traffic_graph/js/g/c/3m?&u=gamingsteve.com'></SCRIPT>
That is the HTML code it gave me, pretty cool, I think.

New numbers are in, now we're number 45,468.

By the way these numbers are used quite a bit by outside firms to get an idea of how popular a web site is, so it's pretty important to have a good ranking. Usually anything under 400,000 is considered respectable, anything under 100,000 is considered pretty popular, and anything under 20,000 reflects some of the top sites on the Internet. This is an excellent number, and it's just getting better!

Notice that the Daily Reach was next to zero in September and Octeber, the slow months last year. But what was it that happened so recently that caused such a huge spike?
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Sweet! Gaming Steave really deserves it for the amount of work in each podcast. ( It may be because, when ever I open a new tab for a side thing, I usually click on the fav bar, somtimes going to this site just to pass time.)
