Silent night

Hi again. Been busy for a while. I've been nursing midnight12.com a bit and it seems to work out pretty good. I will try to post some statistics later on. Traffic is increasing slowly while new videos are being posted on a regular basis. Took the design to a higher level and it looks slightly more cool now in my opinion. You may give it a look and give some input as a comment if you like. Also I'm working on a new linking strategy so if you go through some of my domains it just shows midnight12.com as it is present now. I know some of you like statistics and images with graphs and fancy stuff. Well to be honest I do too but they are hard to get. It seems my site midnight12.com gets banned temporary some of the time on Cloudflare because of my site's traffic level, as part of the DDOS protection. This eventually put a nail in the coffen to Cloudflare and I'm not testing them anymore with this tube site. I still use them for other less visited sites though. Yesterday I maxed out the output of my server harddrives with 148MB/sec at the peak (109164 hits in one day) which is supposed to be the maximum transfer rate of a RAID0 2xSATA harddrive. It slowed down the site a bit. As part of this I've decided to upgrade my solution with 2 new SSD drives instead and place them in RAID0 - this is supposed to be the fastest solution available besides other really expensive custom storage solutions. The geeks among you are probably trying to tell me "SATA does transfer 600MB/sec on each channel" - I am aware of that but I'm trying to keep within the limitations of my webhost's language and standard disk drives with SATA connection do only transfer a maximum of upto 74MB/sec per disk while a SSD disk is capable of transferring upto 600MB/sec per disk :) I don't even know why storage specialized companies like Samsung or Western Digital aren't producing any double SSD solutions - double the height and add a RAID0 controller module embedded into the disk. It would give a speed increase of 100% on each disk. 1200MB/sec per disk. As like a M2 module disk. Might be a price issue or maybe the techies are taking a nap? ;)

As some of you know, I also play online games on a regular basis. Sometimes it's a Steam game CS:GO (Counter Strike: Global Offensive) and at other times it's the MMORPG called Lineage2 (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) on the official Naia EU server. I have an orc there called FastBuffer which is a Iss Hierophant (combined buffer and healer). Used her as a buff-pet in earlier days. Have a few other toons too but I take it that FastBuffer is the most well-known among my characters. Trigger and Qwest being some of the first and oldest characters. I've been playing since the Open Beta and never really left again. That must be since the year 2003. I've met many friendly people along the road while some played as enemy a bit of the time. My number one rule in any game, is: Don't judge the person behind the screen for what their toon is doing, they may be living out their dream being an evil character in the game while if you met them out-of-game (IRL) he or she might be the most nice and chilled person you'll ever get to know. Made a screenshot for you to look at and attached it to this post. The EXP stats is after a small casual grind at my usual spot near Aden city on Naia. Hope you like it :)

#1000 members and counting... Great! :-)

Happy day for Adepca! 1000 visitors decided to create an account on www.adepca.com which shows great support for the content on this website. Traffic is coming in at a higher pace and users seem to be happy with the offers they get presented from ads which is awesome. I've taken some time to register and put in some more websites to generally lighten up the network a bit and for strengthening the current linking structure. With time I will add a forum to Adepca.com and also I will be starting to seek informations on how to become CA with ability to issue out certificates for websites at a competitive price level, for this time being you can use the banners I've placed in the right side of the screen to purchase domains, certificates and webhosting. I hope you will take your time and invest it into making your own network(s) larger, also it would be nice to get to know some of you on a more friendly level. Right now it's more like a dictator writing to followers rather than friends interacting, the comment fields are open for submitting your input within each post. Furthermore I will refine the "Adepca Linking Strategy", it was released a bit early but in general it is a almost complete blueprint as far as you can stick to the released version and use it for your own good. Have a great day all. Some music to relax a bit after this read: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_iRx2Un07k

Working on a small project

I've been working on a small project to learn more about how to tweak a site into receiving as much organic website traffic from Search Engines as possible.
The website address is http://www.glovm.com . It features thousands of reviews/profiles from various providers within the adult webcam industry.

At first I thought it would be a good idea to buy some hosting. I found a hosting provider who had some nice packages to choose from and they are not all too expensive, it even comes with CDN (Content Delivery Network) which means they will port content out to satellite servers closer to the visitors reducing load times for visitors. The whole setup was purchased for around 175Euro and lasts 1 year. However I did extend the time with one year extra means it will not die off before 2021.
I installed Wordpress 1-click which basically means that it updates Wordpress automatically without needing me to interfer. I gathered a few plugins and a theme that works perfectly with the content the site is distributing. After a few days I noticed traffic coming in. There haven't been many sales yet and I will tweak the site more into a salespitch rather than just serving as a ressource.

Right now the website receives 3.8K visitors per day on average. I do hope this will get better with time - all traffic now is type-ins and organic Search Engine traffic coming from Yandex, Google, Bing and Baidu, etc.

In a not so far future from now, I'm going to purchase a Dedicated server with a handfull of IP's as this is a must since shared hosting accounts tend to fail with this type of website. This also enables me to do a bit more SEO work on the side resulting in more visitors to the website. It will also help on loading times. Here you can see a graph from my Urchin 6 log stats :)
