I'm a new member, admittedly, but I do still come here almost every day.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Actually, no, that really can't be accurate at all. There is just no way at all that 4,683 REAL people came to this site on 12-12-2018. Perhaps some spambot went haywire or something. Or perhaps just some glitch in the message board software.

I've seen spikes like this on FaunaClassifieds as well. For instance it is now showing 11,689 visitors on 10-04-2016, which I can assure you never really happened.

Yep these weird spikes in traffic are happening to other reptile forums as well .. it's apparently a tool used by the site owners to add 'fake' traffic and members to greatly increase the value of the site .

Well, that certainly isn't the case with my sites. I've never felt the need nor desire to try to fake statistics like that. I'm much more interested in the true picture they paint about what is going on.

Are a bunch of people trying to sell their sites? I would think the market is pretty soft for websites these days.

I understand they're popular for advertisers... so they're tempted by traffic /numbers ...

There was one reptile forum just a few months ago ( one that was struggling but was still bought out - by foreign owners )

Anyways who went through a phase .. starting fairly slowly

I'm not allowed to edit for some reason ..

..continued ... went through a phase where the number of news threads and new MEMBERS steadily grew and grew until the new numbers were quite ridiculous.

A forum having about 30 posts a day was getting 300 posts per day and maybe 50 BRAND NEW members overnight - every night !

95% of the new threads were people having ridiculous issues and were clearly bogus threads .

Topics including arguing you didn't need stats for ceramics , snake and lizard cohabitation, feeding strange mammals to snakes , depressed geckos .. you try and think of something ridiculous and there was a new thread about if .



Anyways these new members and seemingly much traffic meant more and more advertisers ..
