By Chris Moore:
Even though it’s Jim’s day to post an acoustic rock cover song, it is with great pleasure that I make this official FMP announcement…
As of yesterday, the highest number of unique visitors we had in a day was 222, a record set back in April. During that time, we were using a program that helped us invite YouTube friends and get more hits to our site. We stopped using the program very shortly after hitting that record, but we always felt like it was a cheap way to make a record. After all, we had the programs getting hits in addition to the actual viewers.
Well, we can feel guilty no more!
As of yesterday, our new record is 225 unique, in-the-flesh visitors to the Laptop Sessions music video blog in ONE day! This is due in large part to two things that have never happened before in the history of the blog. First, we have been gaining ground steadily in the search engines — Google, Yahoo, MSN — and now we’re actually coming up on the first page when people around the world search for terms such as “acoustic song” and even some songwriters and bands, such as “Ben Folds acoustic.” A second benefit is that many people are curious about the Laptop Sessions based on various music forums that Jim, Jeff, and I belong to. Hopefully, one day soon, those people will sign up for membership on this site as well, so they can leave comments!
That’s all for now. Stay tuned for lots of great things to come in 2009, not only with the Fusco-Moore Productions Blog and the Laptop Sessions music blog series, but also with FMP Studios and the brand-new, redesigned WCJM site.
See you tomorrow for another all-new session!
