lol Good to know. Yesterday was our 400th post in about nine months and that Alexa ranking mathematically places our little SoBro website in the top 8 or 9% of the web.
Readership is naturally American but we have regular readers in the UK, Canada, Germany and other countries.
We are included in SoBro image searches.
Google stats evidence the recipes as the usual search engine gateway that brings a new reader. The religious posts each Sunday garner the most private email. Questions about living here in the ClockTower are fairly routine by now, too. And a CTT image search turns up the thousands of images we’ve shot and published since July 18th, 2010.
CTT has gathered over 21,000 page views so we can feature ads and split the revenue with Google. How exciting.
Well, not really. ClockTowerTenants launched with a typical spike, then settled into a regular readership and built slowly back from there. That’s a predictable curve, I’m told, and you can see it in the graph.
But recovery can take years to regain that initial bounce and we accomplished that in about six months. Still, at current ad rates CTT would return about $.61 every 30 days. Split with Google our take would be about 30 and one half cents per month or less than a penny per post.
In France they say “centime pour un artiste”, or “penny for an artist.”
By the way, have you noticed the flipside of the new ones?
