I hope that everyone had a great holiday. I just got through running some statistics on our site. We're getting over 8000 readers/month on HighEndBuzz.com which is a major milestone. About 20% of that traffic comes from reciprocal traffic sites like BlogExplosion, most of whom don't necessarily read the content, they simply wait 30 seconds and browse to the next site (but we do appreciate those that do read a bit and comment).
Our attempt at creating a consumer panel is going rather well and we do appreciate those of you who registered with us. There is still room on the panel for those who wish to participate; and no, we're not giving away any XBox 360 for your opinions, sorry. (we had a laugh since we're not a for-profit organization; and Ad revenues only cover about 25% of the operating costs of this site).
For 2006 I'd like to hear from you; what topics you'd like for us to cover? We've had a lot of success and our review of the Razr phone caused a 25% spike in traffic via search engines. I've received emails from people asking for more insight into the mobile phone markets as well as Internet Technologies and gaming.
We plan on changing the very generic banner we have here over the next couple of days as we prepare for the 2006 launch of the site. Have a safe week!
