7 hours on a software site. What's his IP address, his parents basement.0.0.1? ;)
But congrats, that must be a sign of compelling content.
Thank you Wheel
The IP nr is just from a regular and well-known ISP :o)
I should have mentioned that the software is not mine. I just use it, write about it, write tutorials and show its potential because I like it very much, that's all.
Are you sure he didn't just have it open in a tab for 7 hours and just looked in occasionally?
You guys are really trying to spoil Staffa's high, aren't you :(
Computer time is subjective. I'm sure everyone knows what it is to sit down to do a quick five-minute fix on a couple lines of code-- ten minutes, tops-- and look up to find the house pitch dark, your stomach growling, your lower back screaming, the cat giving you dirty looks, and your spouse wanting to know why you didn't start dinner and walk the dog hours ago. Or something along those lines.
Or suddenly find its getting light and the birds are waking up ....
I always bookmark interesting tutorials and read later - don't think I could sit through hours in one go
I guess he was planning to make new software :) . So beware :(. ha ha ha ha.... Joking man.
Congrats! And thanks for sharing. I am sure he will be back again.
Thank you guys
He has indeed bookmarked the site and
he has been back several times already
though he has still some way to go to beat my most returning visitor with 77 visits over the past year ;o)
Can you pls PM me your website? So that I can learn something.
SunnyG, there is no real point in giving you the site's address for you will not learn much from it unless you are familiar with the software it is about. The site consists mainly of a bunch of regular pages and some sections which run on a database (like the forum)
The success of the site entirely hangs on knowing the subject inside out (the software). Writing tutorials that users talk about on other sites and refer to.
Writing compelling content to boost the visitor's confidence when they are just starting to use the software and in-depth articles for advanced users and showcasing what the software can do when a user is willing to put in the effort as well as supporting those visitors who want to learn.
And that's basically it. The site has been online since the start of 2008 and on page 1 of the SERPs of the major SEs ever since.
No probs. I just wanted to see what makes the visitors to stay long in your website pages. I know compelling content is one major factor. Just wanted to how you have displayed.
Anyway thanks for sharing the virtual fact.
Wish you luck
