I was in a local pub on sunday and over heard a conversation at the next table and they were talking about my website and promoting it for me, some were writting down the address. I didnt say a word but found it to be cool.
Then yesterday they were talking about my site on a radio morning show in Chicago, some guy named "Mancow", I never heard of him. I know this because someone emailed me from Chicago because they wanted to be on my mailing list.
So I think this should help my traffic and adsense a bit. Just wanted to share this, I thought it was pretty cool.
I've heard of ManCow. I don't know how popular he is now, but a few years ago he had a nationally syndicated radio show. (He may still--I don't know.) He used to be a (comedic) commentator on one of the US cable news networks. (He had a little spot where he talked at the end of one of the shows.)
He's a "shock jock" so he gets quite crude sometimes, but he definitely has a following. Having your site mentioned on such a popular show should boost your traffic up quite a bit!
I don't know if I have to talk as well about my site's successful content, but I have been contacted and cooperate in recent times with BBC (crossing continents) ,Sunday Times ,Channel 4 and National Geographic for occasional cooperation due to my site's content and personal experience.
