My Website www.fantasy69.co.uk - Nearly 65 Million Hits!
I asked hubby the other day how my site www.fantasy69.co.uk was doing, and he amazed me by saying I'd had 64,962,269 hits since August 2007. I feel that's a bit of a success story!
Of course hits are meaningless as such, but I am now managing to earn a few bob from it as a viable concern - linking it to my phone chat and also selling audio cds, videos, written stories, personal clothing and other items as well as a fun quiz every month and a fun conversational blog. My husband (for the most part) takes the pictures and videos and does all the maintenance and technological stuff! I write the blog and fiddle around with pictures etc. from time to time! A good joint effort.
There is no membership charge but I've over 700 registered users who receive emails when necessary and who are able to comment on my blog etc. It's a real community spirit on the site now and I welcome everyone along whether it's just to view, phone, buy or comment.
The site was produced via WORDPRESS by my husband, and it's proved to be very easy to work with - adding and subtracting photographs and words on a very regular basis. I can thoroughly recommend it for anyone wishing to start a site up themselves.
It has taken - and continues to take - a lot of hard work to keep it vibrant and worthwhile, but its continuing popularity shows that it can be done, and I am looking forward to more people enjoying it in 2012!
(Last time I submitted a 'success story' on here it was met with cynical negativity from a few models which was a shame. I hope this time anyone who responds will be pleased for me. I've read other threads at different times where websites have been put forward as successful with less apparent success, so I think I'm right to be proud of what I'm achieving, especially as I'm an over-55 yr old lady!).
(PS I checked with Purestorm 'admin' that it was ok to put my website address on this thread and was told it was fine to do so)
I was delighted when last month my site hit 100,000 in 10 months and said so in my own blog. That figure is staggering for a one man/woman run site.
A very big well done to you! Keep it up and I hope you are advertising for others on it!
I maybe wrong and I don't want to burst anyone's bubble but aren't 'hits' a count of the number of individual page items that have been downloaded not the number of visits. Actual vsitor numbers are usually only a proportion of this.
That's how I understand it anyway

Perfectly and exactly what I said in my opening post which maybe you misread at the time.
Bubble very much intact!
My hits are indeed a count of the number of individual pages items that have been downloaded and not the number of visits! The girl dun good.
Very well done. Its clear that the results that you get are proportionate to the effort that you put into any project.
Yes, the Girl done very good. and it was richly deserved.
p.s. you know that someone will try to bust your bubble, no easy task, I bet.
The 'guy' dun good too of course. Without my husband's support and help in setting up, running and continuing to help me provide new content for the site, this thread wouldn't exist. Neither probably would the website!
