Nov. Stats

Work, music, and life got together and decided that last week would be a good time all blow up on me, so the blog got the short end of the stick. We here at Two Dudes are uncompromising in our standards, so rather than throw together something shoddy and quick, I thought I’d put out a fun post of blog stats that has been rattling around in my head for awhile. It’s fun to keep tabs on who’s looking at what here, but there have been a few surprises. For your reading pleasure, here are our Top 10 pages and Top 10 search hits so far.

Thoughts:

  1. Reviewing Salmonella Men on Planet Porno was the best thing I’ve ever done for the blog.     More below.
  2. This review was tweeted by the publisher, who has since ignored everything I put up.
  3. A scoop for Two Dudes here – we had this posted before almost anyone else. It also let to a trackback related to #8.
  4. The most popular anime post.
  5. Odd, since this is the least SFF-y post on the board.
  6. NPR’s list generated a lot of traffic for a lot of sites; we were no exception.
  7. Why? This isn’t even a good book!
  8. The author came to our page when looking for Seiun info. We have since become email friends, talking about Asian culture, SF, and other interesting stuff. She directed her own blog followers here for this review.
  9. More anime. I need to get back on that train.
  10. Both generate a fair amount of traffic for old and/or niche work.

Thoughts:

  1. A remarkable variety of terms hits for Salmonella Men. Considering how deep one would have to dig to finally reach our humble page, I must admire these men (and I’m certain they are men) for their efforts. I can only imagine the disappointment when they arrive.
  2. This seems more popular than I would have thought.
  3. Scoop!
  4. Seriously, why are people looking for this? Where to they hear about it? It’s a crap story! I’ve put up something like 50 reviews, and this outdraws almost all of them.
  5. Yay Aliette.
  6. Not sure why this outdraws Gundam. Maybe less competition?
  7. Good thing I grabbed this as soon as the book came out.
  8. I’m glad that people are finding Mardock. It deserves wide recognition.
  9. Also happy that people turn this article up. It’s a book that everyone should enjoy.
  10. I know this book is popular, so no surprise here.
