Every time I log in I see "users online 500+". With <50 actually looking at anything.
Never used to see that before the downgrade. Is that the total for all of the curse sites combined or something? Are there that many spam bots waiting on the fringes? Considering worldwide, there are only about 3,000-10,000 arcade games being played at any given time; it is hard to imagine such a large portion of the population is also browsing this site.
Anyone got any good theories? Any mods who can ping locations to see if 90% are from india or china?
I am pretty surprised by this. That is a pretty solid number compared to the number of "active" members. Then again; we do often see people come out of the woodwork with well made projects, previously never heard of.
As a mod, do you have access to the analytics of this site? On the forum for my wc3 project, I used to enjoy looking at all the various user statistics; to understand what brought players to my site.
In my opinion, post count is down, but user count is up (Since the new site). I have no records to back this up though. I was initially curious if something about the new curse site made it easier to access for players; or if it pushed itself up the google charts; or what. If in-fact usage statistics are way up with the new site, then that would mean we are all a bunch of whiners and curse is doing the right thing, no?
There must still be a decent amount of people wanting to learn SC2 stuff... According to youtube analytics, my AI editor tutorial has 330 views in the last month (though the average view duration is 3:33 and it's a 15 minute video...) It has over 4,000 views since I made it in Sept 2015.
But yea.. idk, do with this additional info what you want :P
Well with tutorials covering multiple concepts some people just want to learn about the part they are interested in. Else the play lists automatically go to the next video so it is counted even if the person changes off it.

That is off the topic though; this wasn't intended as a curse-bashing thread. I was simply interested in where all the numbers come from; such a high ratio of guests to members, with so few actually viewing. Explaining that they have millions of viewers does help to explain it. If only .1% of them see "We have starcraft 2 stuff too, wanna look at it?" they will be linked here; and make up a large portion of those numbers.
On my little site, it wasn't uncommon for half of the users to be bots from search engines. And I really wouldn't be against click-farming either. It brings your sites higher up on google searches; gaining popularity and reputation. It was simply curiosity.
