I noticed that our bacteria covered fork is moving on up in the google charts when one types "uncyc". Is there any thing we contributors can do to aid the process? Leverage (talk) 11:08, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Well, we could vandalize the shiggity diggity out of the Wikia site. Though in the end we could have full-scale vandal warfare on our hands. So, just keep visiting the site regularly for now. King-john.png How can my WeinribŽ be this cute?King-john.png 16:38, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
No, you would have no vandal warfare on your hands, as nobody who edits there has ever vandalized this site. If they did vandalize here they'd probably be banned at both sites (and two of your favorite people, listed on your user page, edit "there" exclusively, well Spike anyhow, Puppy wanders outside his fence sometimes). And I wish I knew how to bump pages up the search engine list, which would come in handy sometimes. Does anyone really know, or could give some good tips? Thanks. Aleister 17:32 8-4-'13
What I was thinking of, for example, is would it make a difference if all us saintly users googled uncyc and then clicked our website, instead of using favourites, or typing e and then enter, etc? Vandalism should not even be mentioned here, as - quite apart from all the normal shit that comes with vandalising - it would have no bearing on their google ranking or ours.

...also vandalising Wikia would actually boost their rating as it would generate more site traffic. MrN MrN9000SouthParksmall.jpg 18:33. Apr 8. 2013
The only way to boost your search engine rank is to have more links pointing to your site from around the web. So the only way to really help is to link to uncyclopedia.co anywhere you can. I, for example, have a link to Uncyclopedia in my signature for forums I frequent and on my profile page for games I play. --EMC [TALK] 13:55 Apr 9 2013

Stats

A screenshot from the Google Analytics window showing our page views from when it was enabled (March 8th) to the latest complete week, April 6th.

I took a quick screenshot from our Google Analytics page, and the view count is consistently going up every week. There was a spike on April 1st, giving us our first week with over 9000 page views.

I also just submitted our full sitemap to Google, so hopefully that will help. If someone wants to become an expert in SEO, be my guest :) Legoktm (talk) 18:45, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

If this trend continues, eh! Leverage (talk) 20:29, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Alexa?

I had a similar question about Alexa rankings. Is there anything editors can do on this end to help or is it only off-wiki activity that affects this? MadMax (talk) 19:42, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

We can all increase page views by viewing more pages. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 20:12, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
According to [1] you need to have their toolbar installed which is basically trackware, so I really wouldn't. Alexa rankings haven't been accurate for a while now. Legoktm (talk) 20:23, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Serious suggestion for a change

I know this is a bit weird coming from me, but I really do have a serious one. Have you ever noticed how, when someone sees something good, he wants to see more of it? This leads to an inevitable conclusion through the ingenuity of that thing called logic - which has been banned in places by Conservapedia, but apparently not here --- it is not my habit to leave suspense unresolved, but this time I think I will. -- Style Oranssiviiva.jpg Guide 05:56, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Your implicit suggestion being 'be more good'? Leverage (talk) 10:29, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
Yes - and "good" is self-explanatory! -- Style Oranssiviiva.jpg Guide 18:22, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Thing to do...

Create QUALITY forums / posts on other websites linking to quality articles here. Things which the people on that website would actually be interested in. Aleister showed us an example of how to do this when he wrote ATS and then went to their website and publicized us. Because the article was aimed at them they were more interested. I expect people will be clicking those links for years to come. So... For example, we need to go to a cricket websites, and link to cricket, or go to the BBC and link people there to BBC.

Also... IMO we actually do need a new competition. One where an award is given for the user who does the most off-site to publicity advertise the wiki. MrN MrN9000SouthParksmall.jpg 17:52. Apr 19. 2013

"Things which the people on that website would actually be interested in" is not spam. That's the point. If you don't know the difference between spam, beans, chips and spam I recommend you don't appear in any Monty Python sketches. MrN MrN9000SouthParksmall.jpg 14:48. Apr 20. 2013
