Christmas Traffic Slump

You may wonder why webmasters are grumpy around Christmas. With all the traveling and get-togethers, people just don't get on the internet and surf like they regularly do. This phenomenon is not related to just Christmas, but the other major holidays put a big dent in website traffic.

Here is one of my websites, http://buildfree.org/, and as you can see traffic to that site from the 22nd to the 26th suffered greatly. And since statistically visitors are money, revenue is nearly cut in half for a short period. (December 30th count was at 7:30 in the morning).

Multiply that times about 10 (my good revenue generating websites), and you can see why I am glad when Christmas is over. The only ray of hope is, I always hope there were a few extra computers under the Christmas tree, and by the traffic count on the 28th and 29th, that may be true.

Small Random Game Widget Finished

I have been working on a smaller version of my free "Random Game Widget". It is now available to put on a website or blog by copying and pasting a short snippet of script. The random game widget displays a different game with a refresh of the browser or page load. To capture the free game widget for your website or blog, just click the "get widget" tab at the bottom of the respective widget or go HERE for the small version, or HERE for the large version. As of today, both random game widgets contain over 450 games and more games are added regularly.

Remember you can always use the larger random game widget too!


I will also build you a custom combination of multiple widgets for free. For example, if you want a series of 3 widgets stacked on top of each other, or 3 by 3, or 5x5, you get the idea. Just email me at websitegames@fastmail.fm.

Why use a free Email provider?

Well you would think that after 20 years if internet, someone could do something about spam. I don't care how good your spam filter, there are still a few spam emails in my several email inboxes. Sometimes there are even more, like yesterday, I had 35 different emails from the same POS.

I have 20 websites and I use about 15 different email addresses to speed up the contact process. If I get a message to a certain email, I know which website they are referring to. I used to get emails that said "I would like to advertise on your website, or I would like to exchange links with your website. I would spend an extra day pinning down the site they were referring to.

So using a free email provider is a necessity. It is also handy every now and then to just dump an email address when it starts to receive mega spam. Another good use for a free email is to just to use it as a disposable email to sign up for free websites and free offers (notorious spammers)so your "real" email doesn't get buried in spam.

Gullible Warming (revisited)

na na nana na Ok, so I don't get it right every time, but my post from January 18, 2009 was pretty accurate. Now it seems the truth on global warming is coming out that the statistics were skewed to appear worse than they are. You can read my original post HERE.
