I’ve been curious for the last week or so, watching the page view and visits counters on this blog, seeing how August was, weirdly, a huge month for traffic on Sixteen:Nine. By last night, monthly traffic had busted the previous record traffic month by more than 10% … and the old record was pretty good.
So thank you Chris Riegel for buying Scala, as that news definitely got some attention in the dead of summer. But that only accounted for part of the big jump. I think the industry is growing, getting its legs, and more people are reading the manual before they use the power tool.
Thanks to readers for dropping by, and now my challenge is top that number again.
Fiscal year for my vast media empire, run out of a spare bedroom, also closed off at the end of August, and that was also a record for ad sales. In 2006, I think I did maybe $85 in Adsense revenue. I did a BIT more this year.
Thanks a very large pile to Sixteen:Nine’s many sponsors, including Screenfeed, Capital Networks, Armodilo, CE labs, Inlighten, Broadsign, Milestone, IAdea, VIA, Screenscape, Starmont, OnSignTV, Clever Digital Signage, Digichief, Freshwater Digital, Datacall, Woven Media, Crown Content and Insteo (and those I am forgetting … sorry).
Now back to work.
