Ok, I’m on my knees…
Getcher mind OUT of the gutter! Not in that sense! LOL
The article was going up and up and up. But now has stalled and I need your help to get it going again.
There are almost 800 people following my posts, spread out among Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, and Feedburner.
That would give me almost 800 hits on the lens. That will take you about 10 seconds.
If you have 3 minutes to spare, I would love it if you could hit all the “like” and “share” buttons up at the top of the article after it loads.
If you have 5 minutes to spare, I would name my first born after you if you could scroll through the article and take all the polls and quizzes.
If you have 6 minutes to spare, I will dance naked in the rain in your honor, which since I live in Texas, and rain is generally accompanied by lightning and thunder and tornadoes, well… nonetheless, when the guys in the white coats show up I’ll mention your name prominently.
Hmmmm… scratch that last bit. LOL Anyway, if you have six minutes to spare, then please leave a comment on the article in the Guestbook which is down at the bottom of the article
Here are the stats:
“Visits = the number of people to land on your lens.
Pageviews – the total number of times your lens has been viewed by visitors.
Visits this period: 235 visits
Pageviews this period: 390 pageviews
Pages/visit: 1.66 Lifetime visits: 235″
Note from lil ole me: What this means is that of the 235 unique visitors, some of you folks have gone there more than once for a total of 390 visits! Woot!
THANK YOU — THANK YOU — THANK YOU!!!!
#18 — “Books, Poetry & Writing >> Books >> Reading Lists”
#63 — “Books, Poetry & Writing >> Books”
#99 — “Books, Poetry & Writing”
#4,536 — Overall (out of almost 3 million)
And this ranking is the result of only 390 visits from 235 people! IMAGINE what the rank would be if I got almost 800 hits on the page today! Swooon! *pant* *drool*
Here is a screen capture that shows how many folks have hit those like and share buttons. The #141 count is for Facebook. Which means the 235 folks who have gone to the page, 141 of them have hit at least one of the “like” buttons! THANK YOU — THANK YOU — THANK YOU!!!!
Here is a graph from the “stats” area of the dashboard/management area for the article:
You can see that after steadily climbing in the ranks it has leveled off and now is basically flat.
So… there you have it.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled workday or house chores or random Internet surfing.
This is going to be my last push for visitors. I’ve done all the things that one should in trying to maximize SEO… I’ve blogged about it. I’ve posted on Blogger, Tumblr, Pinterest, etc.
I’ve gone to every Rachel Maddow Fan site and left messages and asked for cross linking. The BIG spike in visits was the result of one of those fan sites Tweeting about my article.
THANK YOU — THANK YOU — THANK YOU!!!!
But now that I’ve got all the books and songs listed back to Jan 1st it is time to put this article in maintenance mode, do the daily updates, and live with whatever level it comes to rest at.
But it sure would be nice to have a Tier 1 article (rank of 2,000 or less overall) because that is where the real money is *sigh*

Yay!!!!! This morning, my article just moved into Tier 2!!!!! Woot!
It ranked 9,153 overall, (It started out at 263,525) and it is #29 in the “Books >> Reading List” category. I need the article to break into Tier 1 (under 2,000 overall)
Thanks to everyone who has visited or shared.
If you haven’t checked out the article please do so. It is a list of music (lots of cools songs) and books written by the guests on the Rachel Maddow Show. April is current through last night’s show. All of March is there and all of Feb except for a couple of days at the beginning of the month. Jan should be listed by the end of the week.
If you want to read about some back ground on why I wrote the article and why the ranking is so important, check out my blog post:
Even if you hate the Rachel Maddow Show, help out a struggling writer by at the very least going to the page and allowing it to load. Every visit helps in the ranking. Then if you are feeling generous, hit ALL of the like and share buttons for the social networks to which you belong!
See ya on the dance floor!
