It's working!
« on: May 28, 2010, 06:37:22 AM »
"What is working?"

Our experiment.

"How can you tell?"

No comment.

"Is there anything that you care to share with us?"

Other than "it's working", no, not yet. Sit tight. I will when the time comes.

"Major Danby, sir."
"Danby. D-A-N-B-Y."
"Take him out and shoot him."
"Sir?"
"I said take him out and shoot him. Can't you hear?"

"And though the crowd clapped desperately they did not see the joke."

Probably because so many of them are Swedes. (Spambots from behind the Iron Curtain don't count.)

We need to chip in and buy you some new CDs.

How about "Ring Ring"?

Have you noticed how many people have read the Blowtorch Preamp Schematics thread? Especially since there are no schematics!

It is working...................

Some of these threads have posts. So, every time you or I look at them, it ups the count.

Most threads have a 10:1 ratio of views to posts. Sure, the two of us can not be responsible for all the views. (OK, there are a few other members, who may look at this.) Still, to have 40 views, with zero replies.............

It is working!

I certainly can't prove it, but it does seem that since you have adopted your new approach to the internet things have changed elsewhere, too. 

Mostly motion, I would say.

I just looked at the view count for the non-existent Blowtorch schematics thread. OK, the guys I have let join are probably responsible for a few of those.

Where did the other 4 dozen or so, come from? From Google, that is where. Can't believe we could fool that many people.

"Still there'll be more!"

I can't wait. All this entertainment, for free. What a great country!

Perhaps there's Blowtorch seeking web-bots out there. 

Or, web-bots that homed in on the first part of the preamp name.

Seriously.

I am pleased to announce that if you type blowtorch schematics, into Google, we are now #2.

The Pub is #1. Obviously. Now, all we have to do is sit back and watch to see who takes the bait!

The phrase blowtorch preamp gets entered on major search engines approximately 25 times each month. There are about 1520 other web pages that contain this keyword phrase. The ratio of searches vs. pages that contain blowtorch preamp is about 25 / 1520 which translates to an assigned competition rating of 0 out of 10, with 10 being most competitive. The competition rating leads to a suggested bid amount of $0.10 to appear in the sponsored section of search engines. This means you might expect to pay about $0.10 for each new website visitor who arrives by way of your paid search advertisement.

O/T, but just as amusing...............

If you follow the #1 link, if you type in something a bit different, you get Stereophile's site, where they announce the Parasound clone. So, we (and The Pub) are behind them, and probably always will be. But that isn't the funny part.

Half of the reader's comments are spam! At least that is one thing we won't have to worry about.

About once a day, some 'bot hits the registration page.

Hmmmm.............not sure how they arrive at any of this, but.............

The phrase audiophile preamp gets entered on major search engines approximately 33 times each month. There are about 81200 other web pages that contain this keyword phrase. The ratio of searches vs. pages that contain audiophile preamp is about 33 / 81200 which translates to an assigned competition rating of 3 out of 10, with 10 being most competitive.

This means you might expect to pay about $0.92 for each new website visitor who arrives by way of your paid search advertisement.

So, you go from a dime to almost a buck, by changing one word. Gee.
