You can ask your webmaster:
- what their favorite food is.
- how much they make a year.
- if he/she is married.
- what religion they are.
- what their sexual orientation is.
But you can never ask them, how many uniques you get. ;-) a wee bit too personal.
(just for reference, pizza, no comment, single, christian, straight)...
If I remember rightly, Brett mentioned that there was in region of 75,000 registered members.
Assuming that around 60-70% of registered members post a message at least once (I would say thats a good estimate given the market and the forum), and around 80% of those at least come back 3-20 times a week, then....
60% of 75000 = 45000 members posted
80% of 45000 = 36000 return visitors
So even if every return member came back once a week then that would be 144k UVs per month.
On top of which, there are SE referals (er, is the site optimised? ;)) and highly-addicted repeat visitors....
I would say 250,000 UVs per month would be a modest guess at the sites monthly traffic. :) Around 9k per day, which seems reasonable given the amount of posts there are.
Of course I have taken all these figures out of thin air, so I could be way off! :)
But it's Friday morning and im bored.......
Only one will hire a copywriter, GoogleGuy's sister, and Brett will be out of luck because he signed a no-compete and an NDA. ;)
A small town in Iowa probably doesn't offer many ops. I remember my days in small towns in a neighboring state, not many opportunities for quality women in a town of 2,500 when you are my or Brett's age. I expect that (small town) is more Brett's problem then lack of charm and good looks or a fat wallet that makes up for all that.
Am I right Brett?
I am not gonna guess how many _daily_ uniques that might mean, but I wouldn't be surprised if WW had more than 500k uniques on some days. Perhaps _much_ more.
Another question: How many pages do all these people see? My guess would be that a very large part of the visitors see more than 10 pages at a visit and that quite a few see much more. It sums up to a lot of work for the servers. And then of course there are all the posts and stickies.
I was recently asked this same question about one of my websites by a journalist. I explained her why I wouldn't answer.
She didn't ask the other questions. ;) (dont know, too little, not married, pantheist, straight)
