This thread has run from January 2021 to September 2021. It only has 147 posts but has over 10,000 views. Other than one post from a sock, all posts are by longtime members. This makes me think that most views came from non-users and that they were possibly drawn here from a search for Blockbuster failing.
We’ve been told that ads bring very little income and that the page views we get have raised us to a more expensive level of Discourse. Is there a positive side to page views?
Apparently we can still draw in people doing searches, but they don’t sign up and post. To me as a poster, I don’t really care how many page views we get, I care about how many new posters we get. We need a way to get some of those page views to turn into new members.
Yes, I know it’s a sample of one. It just happened to catch my eye.
