A Temporary Spike

Saturday, June 13th, 2009

I’ve signed up for Google to email me an alert when Genlighten appears in Google results on the web. I received an alert just now pointing to Quantcast results for Genlighten in May. Here’s the graph that appears:

A few thoughts sparked by this graph:

  • The results here would be more encouraging if they weren’t obviously the result of our Google AdWords experiment in May, combined with our mention in Family Tree Magazine’s blog during that same time frame.
  • We’ve already passed the peak of this spike.
  • I wonder who typed Genlighten into Quantcast to generate the Google alert? Who besides me is interested in our traffic stats? Hmmm.
