Happy Betty's Day!
« on: March 20, 2018, 03:58:24 PM »
We moved from our usenet newsgroup (before the internet, we had the usenet), to the new fangled internet, officially going online as "Betty's Sissyboys" on the first day of spring 1994.

We've been continuously on the internet for 24 years now.

Happy Betty's Day!

Congratulations and Happy Betty's Day. I have been following here for quite sometime but have not thought about how long I have been viewing Betty's boards. I know I was thrilled to find your website in the first place as it meant I was not alone in my Kinks and desires. Thank you for the wonderful service you provide to us all and I sure wish there was some way to grant health, wealth and happiness to you for all time.

Thank you. Next year will be the big one... 25 years online. Our hit counter will have turned over to 50 million hits since 2004 long before then... maybe some time Autumn.

Hey Betty,
50 million hits almost seems unreal but then with the amount of traffic online these days maybe not so much. As I said before, I am so grateful to have found your website and started our friendship.

That's since late Sept. 2004 when our current counter started counting.

I just took steps to reduce the traffic. Once we started regularly getting 15,000 hits a day, with peak days of 17,000-20,000 I either was going to have to spend a lot more money on web servers, or chase away some of the traffic.

Our busiest site is stories. So I changed the URL (address) of stories to reduce traffic. If they go to the old URL, there's a picture with the correct address for here & stories written on the picture. But it's not clickable. If you click on the picture, depending on what old address/URL you're still using, it will send you here or to unclegadget.com, not to stories.

So now we're getting 9,000-10,000 hits a day. People who don't know how to type a web address into an address bar can't get there. Most make the mistake of typing it in a search bar, or using the address bar for a search instead of for an address. If stories is at a new & different URL, the search engines & companies don't have it yet. When you type an address in an address bar it tells your browser to go to that web address. When you type it in a search bar, you're asking a search engine to show any references is has to what you typed in its database. If it's a new address, or private or hidden site, the search engine won't find it.

So we loose everybody who can't use a computer, can't use an address bar, or who visit stories via a google search. It also shakes all those countless bots, spam bots, & other malicious stuff off our trail.

We've been at the same address here at Betty's Pub for a while. So they can still find this site with a google search. If they had a half a brain, they could just scroll down to the link to stories right on our front page. Remarkably, over 1/3 of our story users can't figure that out, & don't know how to type a web address in an address bar. Many probably think their search bar is the address bar. On some portable devices & odd browsers, you actually have to click that it's an web address & not a search or it won't work.

Half the people on the internet couldn't get anywhere on their own. If there's not an app for that on their pocket device, they're lost or wouldn't even know we exist.

They love Windows 10 because it works like a giant phone, where real computer users hate Windows 10 because it works like a giant phone.
