One of the things I try not to pay too much attention to are the number of visitors to the site. But sometimes I just can’t avoid it. Take for example the total number of visitors for August 2007. In July, Major Spoilers had a huge jump in readers, more than likely due to the San Diego Comic-con. I was fairly certain it was a one month jump and the numbers would go back down again, but low and behold; August topped the month previous.
The huge increase in traffic is all thanks to you, the awesome readers of this site. And I mean that from the bottom of my heart.
Since you all rock so hard, here’s the challenge – let’s see if we can top the visitors for August, even if it is only by one person.
Tell your friends, post links to our stories in the appropriate message boards and forums. Let’s get more of you to comment in the comments section. There have been some awesome threads of late from long time readers Brent F., Mark I., Stacy B., Baal, Josh, Brother129, the return of Salieri from his extended vacation, those crazy guys at Cardboard Monocle, and yes even a post by Tom Grice is Wrong Sir! Wrong! himself.
And make sure you tell your local comic shop. The best way this little site can grow is through word of mouth. I’ve really got to thank Collectors Pair of Dice in Salina, KS, and Gatekeeper Hobbies (be sure to mention you heard about them on Major Spoilers for a free quizzical look) in Topeka, KS. for passing the word about the site to their customers.
I started Major Spoilers as a way to get cool news, reviews, and interviews about comics and comic related industries to readers around the world. And by the looks of it, it’s working.
Thanks everyone for supporting our little (but growing) website!
