I’ve managed to gather web server stats for my internet pages for enough time to actually determine how well my strategy to increase my internet exposure is paying off.
Well, I’m happy to report that my overall web traffic since moving the photography solely to the Internet and away from Facebook has resulted in increased web traffic, over 50% on one page and close to 30% on my other pages combined over last year’s daily averages. Considering the fact that those pages had been well indexed and running quite consistently for years, that large a jump is exactly what I was hoping for.
For my friends from Facebook, thanks for sticking with me after the jump.
These days, I prefer weekdays to weekends. Being semi-retired, I’ve become accustomed to doing my local business when traffic and crowds are more thin.
A little relief from the Winter cabin fever we have been suffering from with a drive into the mountains yesterday to visit Trudy’s sister in Bailey, CO. I always take a camera with me on the chance that there may be wildlife in the area. Mid day though, isn’t exactly when the moose are going to be hanging around the local stream.
So, I’ll start the new week out staring out the window at the fresh white stuff while I drink a tall cup of hot Dunkin Donuts coffee and work on getting more stock photos uploaded to the agencies.
Been watching the Winter Olympics, but honestly, I just can’t get in to it. I’m all for “Team USA” rah, rah, rah, and I hope we win lots of medals and everyone gets famous. The best part of it is the distraction from the political bullshit that has engulfed the US. Driven by everyone’s need to out scream everyone else and the lies are at a record crescendo it appears.
Who do you trust? I don’t trust blatant liars, I know that much.
Ridgway is normally where I work from when doing Autumn photography in the San Juan Mountains. It provides good access to The Million Dollar Highway, the Dallas Divide and Last Dollar Road area. There’s a good pizza joint in Ridgway too.
The Bison are part of the herd at Wolf Springs Ranch in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains near Westcliffe, Colorado. With over 55,000 acres of land, you can purchase this property for a mere 49 million dollars.
