Unprecedented number of daily visitors to ssrf.org
On 15 Apr 2014, SSRF.org received an unprecedented number of visitors to its website. The website was visited by 31,754 people which was 127% over the usual 14,000 daily visitors. While Google does not provide clear data on the exact keywords that contributed to the extraordinary spike in traffic, we suspect that the increase was due the total lunar eclipse and full moon that occurred on 15 Apr 2014. SSRF has articles on both events and discusses a spiritual perspective on eclipses and full moon. Key phrases were such as ‘meaning of eclipse’ (ranked #2 in the US), ‘meaning of lunar eclipse’, ‘lunar eclipse spiritual meaning’ and ‘full moon effects’ and some of the large volume key phrases that SSRF ranks highly for in Google’s search engine results. What is also interesting is that one third of the day’s visitors (over 10,000 of the 31,754 visits) came from Spanish languages from various countries in North and South America. Mexico, Argentina and Colombia were the main Spanish language countries.
When we compare year-on-year traffic growth of SSRF, it is a remarkable 92% increase over an already high traffic base the previous year. The extraordinary growth of traffic of SSRF.org is a testimony to the high quality knowledge that is available on SSRF, which the world has been waiting for. All this would not be possible without the grace of His Holiness Dr Athavale.
