Daily Podcast: You Know in All This Excitement
I forgot to upload the podcast. Sorry Justin. In my own defense, I never thought TTAC's blog would take off like this. When we started, it was just Frank and me and sometimes Glenn. We struggled to make ten posts a day. Now we're nearasdammit outblogging the other guys, via regular snarks from Jonny, eco-actualities from Donal, new car buzz from Justin and occasional shots from Samir, William C and Sajeev. Oh, and Edward Niedermeyer, who's a friggin' blogging machine (and the only writer I know who has more snidely whiplash than me). And like the good brand that we are, TTAC has grown organically in this, dare I say it, comms post. For the first time in this history of the world (ever) we crested 600k unique visitors (that's you) per month, ascending to 1.8m page views. Equally heartening, we're e-fly paper; visitors hang around the site for an average for 4:16. The ad guys are talking about a demographic survey, and that's great– given that we haven't heard hide nor hair of them in the last six months. Anyway and meanwhile, I promise you more of the same. Fair enough?
HAH 8 Listeners? I think you MAY be selling yourself short there. I do love TTAC, when I started reading it, I could hit it up once a day easy, this gave me time to read the article and brows through all the comments. Keeping up now is getting harder and harder, you people are keeping me away from work!.
What does "hang around the site for an average for 4:16" mean? Does that mean the average visitor is here for 4 minutes and 16 seconds? Or is that some sort of ratio?
Which, surprisingly enough, is high for a website. Surfers can have incredibly short attention spans, often spending just seconds on a site. I think the average at TrueDelta is about 2:30.
