You can listen to this post here, or you can read on…
Yesterday was a HUGE TRAFFIC DAY! We broke our previous record traffic day by over 400%, with nearly 800 visits. If you have posts on GabbiCat, check out your play counts. Many of them have been played several hundred times! We’ve now been visited by all 50 of the United States and over 70 countries around the world! For those of you that have been tweeting about and promoting GabbiCat, thank you SO MUCH! I appreciate anything you can do to spread the word about GabbiCat as I have very little money for advertising.
I deployed some minor enhancements to the site last night. They are as follows:
- Played count notifications - You will now receive notifications when any of your posts are played 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000, etc. times. This helps keep you aware of posts that are trending or possibly going viral…handy. If you have email notifications enabled, you will also receive an email each time these events occur.
- Extended and clickable captions - You can now enter up to 500 characters in the caption field of your posts rather than 140. Also, any hyperlinks that you include in your caption will now appear as clickable links that will open a new browser window.
- Changed anonymous home page back to “Everything” feed - After reviewing the traffic numbers from yesterday, it became clear that making the “Trending” feed the home page caused many of the latest posts to be ignored. It might make sense to use the “Trending” feed as the home page at some point in the future when there’s a constant flow of new posts coming in, but for now I think it makes more sense to use the “Everything” feed. We’ll see.
- Contest coming soon - I’m still working on the specifics of the contest. Expect an announcement soon!
