Decline of websites

In this post, I tallied some website popularity, according to Alexa.

It’s interesting that gashakespeare.org dropped quite a bit, but I remember there were some issues with the Alexa link… the link for gashakespeare.org actually went somewhere else. That seems to be fixed, and the current low ranking prevails. Possibly as a result of being out of season.

TheaterReview.com dropped a big chunk. I attribute it to the fact that I’ve started censoring flame wars, and thus interest has waned.

Checking out Alexa

Keith and the Girl were celebrating having broken though the 50,000 mark recently on Alexa. Last night, I decided to do a little site-surfing on Alexa.

RSS’d

I had a few free moments at the end of the work day Friday, and decided to
play around with RSS and XML.

The end result of which is, if you are interested, you can now get a
syndication feed of TheaterReview.com by adding theaterreview to your
friends list.

Whenever anyone posts a new review, it should pop up.

So, all the reviews of Kudzu Playhouse and OnStage Atlanta you could ever
want… for free!
