Internet entrepreneurs who study web analytics can find excuses all the time to celebrate small victories and large. Yesterday we had another one. World Vital Records had its highest page views ever yesterday with 58,398. Our previous high was 43,828. As we add more and more content to our site (and all our new databases are free for 10 days), we will continue to generate buzz (14 mentions in the blogosphere yesterday) and more visitors. Our subscriber count continues to grow as well.
We have more than 75 RSPVs for today's Jeff Barr presentation. It will be held at the Provo City Library at 10 am. The event is hosted by Provo Labs Academy, which trains entrepreneurs on internet marketing. (Next 12-week course will start in March. Fill out this Contact Me form to learn more.) I think we may have room for 5-10 more people, so if you'd like to show up in hopes of getting a seat, you might want to give it a try.
I admit to being a stats junkie. When I was five and first started following college basketball, back when Kresimir Cosic played for BYU (the first international all-American ever in US college basketball), I used to keep track of the stats on the page inside the program. I would circle a 1 every time someone made a free throw and a 2 whenever they made a field goal. I loved math and I loved BYU basketball.
