Just wanted to share a couple things this morning..Our most recent post on John Hambrick drew the biggest single day response from readers in the history of the Cleveland Classic Media Blog..We use an application called sitemeter.com to count the number of users that come through the blog on any given day. The general average is 60-90 visits per day with over 100 whenever I post something new. We have hit 136 twice..The Hambrick story was posted Monday at 3:15 PM and had the usual spike of page visitors resulting in a final Monday total of 130..A really good day but nothing that unusual, being that something new had just been posted.
A site called TVSpy.com, a clearinghouse for information of use to TV professionals, especially news anchors and reporters, noticed the John Hambrick Debut story and featured it Tuesday morning on its website. I first noticed something unusual when 28 visitors showed up between 9-10 AM EST..I usually average 0-9 visitors for any one hour with a previous high total of 18...It was only the beginning. There were two hours of 31 and one hour of 34 visitors in the afternoon..An Average of 13 throughout the 24 hour day ending Midnight Wednesday and a total viewership of 317 throughout Tuesday. I was floored by the response, and much of it was due to the TVSpy Article. As of 5:30 This morning, there are 18 more visitors..Unusual for the overnight hours.
TVSpy.com also has the latest Happenings in the TV News industry and forums for TV personnel..Its basic service is free but there is a Gold membership that they charge for. I am adding a link to TVSpy.com to the set of blog links as of this morning..Looks rather interesting..Thanks also to our regular readers for helping us have our biggest day ever..
