Korat sites' performance report
« on: August 01, 2012, 10:54:26 AM »
On schedule our monthly comparative look again. It's the second month of the about three months long infamous summer hole, where even the biggest news sites have to survive on low access figures. Just a few regular readers do take their notebooks to the beach; many prefer taking a break from the web. Others who don't go to the beach do read the sites more in depth, so actually the number of page views isn't going down as the figure of reach is. In that light we just take the number of page views over the summer. Surprisingly figures have changed quite a lot already. The 1-month figures are now:

0.0006390 +46% for koratfart.com (#604 in Thailand)

0.0001570 +6% for korat-info.com (#1,657 in Thailand)

0.0001020 +23% for grumpyexpat.com (#2,006 in Thailand)

0.0000290 -17% for isaan.com (#4,887 in Thailand)

0.0000280 -47% for korat-farang.com (#2,220 in Thailand)

0.0000260 -57% for koratforum.com (#2,188 in Thailand) RSS feed lists only! Still fairly new!

0.0000024 (3 month average, no comparative value given) for koratfarang.com (no regional ranking given) still closed

0.0000020 (3 month average, no comparative value given) for korat-forum.com (no regional ranking given)

0.0000006 (3 month average, no comparative value given) for thekoratpost.com (no regional ranking given)

And on schedule again our monthly comparative look. I read on another forum that it's eagerly followed.

It's now the third and hopefully last month of the about three months long infamous summer hole, where even the biggest news sites have to survive on low access figures. Just a few regular readers do take their notebooks to the beach; many prefer taking a break from the web. Others who don't go to the beach do read the sites more in depth, so actually the number of page views isn't going down as the figure of reach is. In that light we just take the number of page views over the summer. Surprisingly figures have changed quite a lot already. The 1-month figures are now:

0.0006420 -8.94% for koratfart.com (#538 in Thailand)

0.0002350 +36% for korat-info.com (#981 in Thailand)

0.0001120 -1.33% for grumpyexpat.com (#1,814 in Thailand)

0.0000045 -85.95% for isaan.com (no regional ranking given)

0.0000025 -20.03% for korat-farang.com (#3,168 in Thailand)

0.0000023 -19.39% for koratforum.com (#1,810 in Thailand) RSS feed lists only! Still fairly new!

0.0000016 (3 month average, no comparative value given) for korat-forum.com (no regional ranking given)

0.0000005 (3 month average, no comparative value given) for thekoratpost.com (no regional ranking given)
[/quote]

0.0000003 (3 month average, no comparative value given) for koratfarang.com (no regional ranking given)
still closed

The "reach" figures on the more established sites already give a quite positive outlook again. Next month we'll be taking those again.

Time for our popular comparative look at general English lang. Korat sites's performance.

The summer hole should be over now and those that survived should be back to normal. There is the little change that Grumpyexpat's admin decided to close the forum for the moment and keep only the blog accessible. There seems to be an overall trend towards blogs rather than forums now.

As the figures for reach in my opinion better reflect the real interest in a website, i. e. can be less manipulated, we're back to those now. And of course we are also back to the 1-month figures to better see changes:

0.001500 +8% for koratfart.com (#503 in Thailand)

0.000810 -11.23% for koratforum.com (#1,860 in Thailand) RSS feed lists only!

0.000780 -21.34% for korat-info.com (#1,297 in Thailand) German lang. mainly

0.000530 +210% for korat.info (#2,393 in Thailand) Blog

0.000340 -39.75% for grumpyexpat.com (#4,039 in Thailand) now a blog only, forum is closed

0.000200  (3 month average, no comparative value given) for isaan.com (#17,843 in Thailand)

0.000120 -75.95% for korat-farang.com (no regional ranking given)

0.000050 (3 month average, no comparative value given) for thekoratpost.com (no regional ranking given)

Alfie, your own sites' performances are more and more disappointing. You seemed to be doing a lot better when posting at Grumpy before.

And as comment to the closure of the forums Koratfarang.com and Grumpyexpat.com/forum: I think already developed forums the admin isn't interested in keeping alive shouldn't be closed completely, they should remain open for reading, just the registration of new members, posting and maybe also the sending of PMs should be blocked; the forum itself should remain open for reading and research, as they contain some valuable content the members put effort in to compile and publish as a service to the fellow expats. At least that is what I would do, if I ran out of energy, or had limited opportunity left to take care of my forums: just keep them online with static content, maybe moving some of the controversial content to private areas, if I had not done this before. No reason to hide the whole forum for that and for long.

Interesting figures: I have always paid attention, but do a little more now my own blog features.

The stats seem to support the usage evidence: the well-followed forums are more active than the blogs. I started my blog on behalf of a very fluent English-speaking local to enable her to try her hand, but it is a very intimidating thing to do and no-one else has time to comment. I am not in Korat enough to make valid posts.

I would prefer for there to be one or two central, non-partisan forums which included a blog element. The most useful aspect of Lord Voldemort's forum is (or was) the review section regarding hotels, restaurants and nightlife. But the reviews are not from the perspective of an external user: they do not add anything of value. Agoda and Tripadviser are similarly weak on Korat.
 
I plan to close coolkorat shortly: it serves no purpose or benefit. If a new route opens to allow reviews etc. on expat-relevant life, I will be very happy to contribute.

I recently swapped emails with Stickman in Bangkok: he is changing his blog to be more photo-orientated (based on photo stories), and his last few posts have been in this vein. I think the Korat forums could benefit with more images, and more useful (positive) comment on day-to-day life in Korat.

Every year Korat sees an influx of US visitors: surely these people Google before they come? What, of any practical value, do they learn?

The best way to achieve that is by either suggesting a topical subforum in one of the existing forums, a subforum you will take care of, be the moderator of. Like Koratwerner did there: "Im Isaan, rund um Korat, und mehr" (In the Isaan, Around Korat and more). Of course you would have to work hand in hand with the administrator, cause there is a lot more to do than just develop a directory and post. SEO (search engine optimization) needs coordination and a set of rules by the administrator.

Or you make a long thread. Take for example the "Baugeschwafel" (Construction Talk) with its major thread/blog "Schlechter Start für ein neues Projekt" (Bad Start for a new Project) where Detlef is documenting the construction of his house in Khok Sung. The thread consists of 473 posts by now and has been viewed 32,264 times. Detlef takes care of the content, and I take care of the SEO and slightly re-format his posts from time to time to maintain the same format all over the site. He is the moderator; I only interfere when I see things going a wrong way, like Detlef not having noticed an idiot posting in between for spamming or trolling, unrelated posting that should make a new topic or go to another thread. Hardly happens though! :)

I thought every month was not necessary, so I planned to do it every three months. But it's no problem. I can do every two months. I think there are quite some changes, as the Winter Expats are returning to their home countries to work there until next Winter , so the business sites will be accessed more than the social media again until Summer.

OK, in two days  I'll do it again. :cheers

And again the newest figures a day early, because tomorrow is Labour Day.

The sites that don't have enough traffic for a monthly figure at Alexa will only be listed every three months from now on. Those with a monthly figure every month.

One thing I'm very surprised to have found is this


Now why does a forum admin either buys clicks or participates in that silly "Alexa Boostup"? :uhm

Boost your website's Alexa ranking

Good Alexa ranking is a key indicator of a successful website or blog. As a rule of thumb, the better the Alexa ranking, the more business you'll get. Boost up your Alexa ranking by surfing websites with thousands of other Alexa Boostup users.


Funniest is that just the Alexa ranking data tell you clearly that they have been manipulated and how, simply by the CLICKSTREAM data, because that "Alexaboostup.com" site has to be accessed by the "Autosurf Booster" again and again for reading on the rotator there which link to "click" next. So there is no other explanation than  that site having been used for manipulating the Alexa ranking and the forum's page views and visitor numbers. The indication of manipulation was boosted the same! ;D

I was asked by email why I don't update "this interesting Korat sites' performance report" anymore.

Well, I thought it was understood what I explained in that thread about manipulations of the Alexa ranks of Korat sites going on. That calls for a new way of considering. As most of these manipulation systems like alexaboostup.com or upmyrank.com etc. are operating outside of Thailand, but our sites are mostly used by people residing in Thailand, one way is to just taking the regional rank, as it is not likely manipulated as much. Another option is taking the Netcraft rank instead of the Alexa rank.


Let's start with the Alexa Thailand ranks:

koratfart.com #618 in Thailand

korat-info.com #1,026 in Thailand

korat-farang.com # 1,305 in Thailand

korat.info #1,645 in Thailand

koratforum.com # 2,080 in Thailand

isaan.com #11,770 in Thailand


The Netcraft ranks are:

koratfart.com #5,137

koratforum.com #10,821

korat-info.com #14,138

korat.info #30,320

isaan.com #260,710

korat-farang.com #340,323

Results are roughly the same as the not yet manipulated Alexa ranks before. So, why manipulate at all? ;)
