Massive Traffic

One complaint about Warhammer has more comments than anything else I have written in months. This must be what it feels like to blog about WoW: people care about the popular games, while I can say anything I want about the lower tiers of games and get three comments.

To make this perfectly general (and have some fun Monday morning excitement), I hereby hate your game. Whatever you are playing, I hate it. Come, rage against me or agree and talk about how much your devs suck. They’re intentionally trying to ruin the game! Because context also sucks, please make up whatever you like about me and use it as an element of your comment.

No, I know what really drives our traffic: Asheron’s Call 2. This will shock some of you, but this post on Asheron’s Call 2 is the most popular thing on the site, rivaling the front page. When it hits 100 comments, I may bake it a cake or something. An AC2 reference in a Warhammer post got more comments than the content of the post itself. This is now the first post in two years in the Asheron’s Call 2 category, and I expect to reap the benefits. Mwah-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Our biggest traffic spikes were driven by sites like Reddit or StumbledUpon, so we added the plug-in you might have noticed.

  1. The most popular page on my blog is a short article (practically just a blurb) I wrote about Motor City Online closing down in 2003. It has accumulated 249 comments not counting the thousands of spam attempts.

    Comments are not always an indicator, some of the highest hit pages on my sites have no comments at all. Still, I appreciate the interaction more than just the hits. As I see it, my blog is just there because I feel compelled to write. It’s nice to have that turn into conversations sometimes, learn a thing or two from the visitors. =)

  2. One of my highest hit posts is a screen shot comparison between EQ2 and LoTRO, a post I put about .5 sec of effort into, and one I overall find to be rather bland.

    Has to be with how Google works…
