Wow, Keith 'found' (better "got") already what he was looking for:

Quote
Thank you for all your replies. Thanks Bubu I found the forum http.://korat-farang.com. There are a lot of korat farang on korat-farang.com forum.


Was it this sympathetic post by ? that made him decide that company is what he was looking for:

Quote
I'm sorry, if you became subject to verbal abuse by the locals, Keith! I advise you not to wear shorts, slippers and muscle shirts again in the shopping centers, restaurants and temples in Korat. Then they won't confuse you with those undesirables.

PS. Oh, yes, and do shave, wash and make sure you don't smell of lao khao. Also try to be polite!

Can't help from suspecting he knew that link already and was just itching to post it on Yahoo Answers. Too bad it doesn't work as link! ;)

I think Keith should learn to trust in the search engines; their links do usually work. :-[

Are they "Keith" and Mia?

"Keith" who had never posted anything on Yahoo Answers but this one question, that seems to be his whole life now: "What is a korat farang?" Can't help, just smells too strong like that luncheon meat:

Don't know whether the Alexa ranking just reflects the summer hole, has some problems working correctly or simply gets manipulated again; over the last days it seems to be going crazy. So I looked up the ranking by Netcraft. That is based on internet usage by people running the Netcraft Anti-Phishing toolbar on their browser, and measuring extends over a longer period than the 3 months of Alexa, one year or maybe even the whole time of a site having been online. Usually the rankings on both Alexa and Netcraft are pretty near the same with the higher ranked sites. But it's a quite different audience measured on Netcraft, I think, more people caring about internet safety: managers, intellectuals etc. When you open the top visited sites in Thailand (sites located in Thailand, not sites opened from Thailand) for example, you'll see that they're almost all about money and business: http://toolbar.netcraft.com/stats/topsites?c=TH&submit=Refresh Thais just love clicking to "getrich" or "getmoney" etc.

Let's have a look at our Korat sites international rankings on Netcraft:

11,531 for koratfart.com

17,759 for koratforum.com

23,100 for korat-info.com

198,082 for grumpyexpat.com

289,331 for korat-farang.com

566,661 for isaan.com

867,109 for koratfarang.com

920,331 for korat-forum.com

I cannot see any difference in the ranking of the Korat sites to each other, except maybe that koratforum.com is even more appreciated by that group. Guess I have to monitor those stats as well. The difference to a point in time before isn't given. Maybe I'll have to figure that out myself next time I read those rankings.

In the previous years I used to do ranking lists of all Thailand forums known to me. For getting a clearer picture I had then the Alexa and Netcraft ranking combined, i.e. took the arithmetic median. Guess I should do that with our Korat sites too, to rule out some of the error factor. ;)

I really wondered about "Keith"'s desperation going so far that he even resorted to spamming on Yahoo Answers for his forum. A look on the page of google.de searching for "koratforum", I think answered my question; it isn't listed on the first page there. Korat-Info.com. Koratfart.com, Koratforum.com are all listed multiple times there in good positions. Further down the page you can even find the thai site "koratforum.net", and most surprising of all there is even a reference to "korat-forum.com. I think the other Google sites in Europe like google.ch, google.at etc. show about the same. Google in France even shows a link to the old KF down the page:

I love my shirt


Do you have a shirt that you really love,
One that you feel so groovy in ?
You don't even mind if it starts to fade,
That only makes it nicer still.
I love my shirt, I love my shirt,
My shirt is so comfortably lovely.
I love my shirt, I love my shirt,
My shirt is so comfortably lovely.
Do you have some jeans that you really love,
Ones that you feel so groovy in ?
You don't even mind if they start to fray
That only makes them nicer still.
I love my jeans, I love my jeans,
My jeans are so comfortably lovely.
I love my jeans, I love my jeans,
My jeans are so comfortably lovely.
When they are taken to the cleaners,
I can't wait to get them home again.
Yes, I take 'em to the cleaners
And there they wash them in a stream,
Scrub a rub dub dub
And there they wash them in a stream -
Know what I mean.
Do you have some shoes that you really love,
Ones that you feel so flashy in ?
You don't even mind if they start to get some holes in
That only makes them nicer still.
I love my shoes, I love my shoes,
My shoes are so comfortably lovely.
I love my jeans, I love my jeans,
My jeans are so comfortably lovely.
I love my shirt, I love my shirt,
In fact I love my wardrobe.
I love my shirt, I love my shirt,
My shirt is so comfortably lovely.
I love my shirt, I love my shirt,
My shirt is so comfortably lovely.
I love my shirt, I love my shirt,
My shirt is so comfortably lovely.
I love my shirt, I love my shirt,

Guess, it gets to that he loves just everything about himself!

Well, JF, I was about to ask you, "What are you listening to now" but I think you've answered the question for me already :)  Does Alfie intentionally ask questions like this in order to guess what generation his members come from?....sort of like...."What are you doing right now" and...."Do you remember this?"  Why would someone ask
such questions?

Re: New Forum in Korat - Stunning statistics
« Reply #71 on: July 07, 2012, 07:16:49 PM »
As the statistics on the internet are going nuts I have to think over, whether I didn't misjudge the effect of Alfie's attempts to get statistics appearing in his favor. Now I stumbled over http://siteanalytics.compete.com/korat-farang.com/

Can you believe that he managed to increase the number of unique visitors by 1,200% in just three months? I'm stunned! :uhm

I know there are more farangs in Korat by the month but that much more? He must have really found public interest. But why are not all stats like that?

Oh, I forgot, the DDoS attack:

580 unique visitors within 30 mins. around 8 o'clock yesterday morning really made me think who the admin or the members might have upset so badly to run a DDoS attack against that forum. Though it doesn't surprise me at all.



There is a confirmation for that theory! Now who could have been so upset?

Maybe the "people" came only to look whether the server is switched on, not interested in reading at all:

for example open http://host-tracker.com/, enter the website's url and click "check now". Wait a few seconds and then the site's counter counted your click as about 50 unique visits. You don't have to wait 15 minutes for the illusion of so many "people" having visited your site!

Quote from: Alfie
Toddy, my dear friend, it's all a mystery, except for what is plain for all to see: 29614 Posts in 2970 Topics by 228 Members. Online: 38 Guests, 9 Users. That's easy to understand even without a calculator.

Is it? ;)

Is there a way to tell by how many natural persons those 228 member accounts have been created and are getting used?

Is there a way to tell how many of those 29,614 posts are just one-liner comments or plain bumps and how many are actual articles?

My advice: Buy an old forum and merge the database into yours, Alfie! The Number of members and posts will add to those in your database. I think you can use that from dailytalkforum.com. It's even dead for spammers by now. Oh, and the orphaned database from thairainbow.org you might merge into there as well. That would give a really high post and member count. ;)

Only the audience who keeps looking up a website or not does vote about it being interesting or not. Unfortunately those cannot be counted so easily. It's necessary to look up different sources to find out, what could be true, or what just stinks of manipulation.

He must've forgotten the password for that member account! You know, it's really hard remembering them all for sooo many different member accounts.

I don't want to be as vicious as speculating that he had only registered on this forum here to publicize his own forum. But I wonder why he had not done that publicizing under a nick he had registered here and posted under before.
