Spike in Bigfoot Traffic
Yes, the headline is pure Google Bait but I found it interesting that a post about Bigfoot in a Freezer increased my web traffic almost 5 fold. Not only did it super increase my traffic, but it brought folks from all over the world. The first map is from Google Analytics:
Wow! I think this is the most blanket coverage of the whole web that I’ve ever had. I’ve had visits from New Zealand, Austrailia and Russia before, but never from Iraq, South Africa or Pakistan. Tres cool. Here’s the complete list of countries seeking Bigfoot via Cliffdweller: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Maldives, Malta, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, Netherlands Antilles, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, and Uruguay.
And as if that wasn’t enough, it’s also the first time I made it to almost all 50 states checking my blog. Here’s the list of US States that came here looking for a large furry beast, and only found a possum: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
Now I just have to figure out why Montana has no interest in Bigfoot when the rest of the world does.
Back to Google Baiting: if I could find some reasonable way to mix Bigfoot and iTunes in one post, I would have paydirt. Maybe I should take Timmy on an expedition to take photos of Bigfoot with my iPhone…
