17 U.S. Code § 107 - Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include—
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes [all mirrored content falls under this clause, any ads present are mirrored from the original site, mirrored content earns me no revenue whatsoever];
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work [this is a unique resource for the mentally ill, and preservation of it can be argued to be incredibly important];
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. [none, as the original work no longer exists outside of archive.org and this website - update: the original site is intermittantly completely unavailable and has a SSL certificate that expired months ago, so this still holds as most users will be unable to access it easily if at all (and now as of May 2018 the original site is completely offline and no longer even has any A records in its DNS)]
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.

This domain is not controlled by Jerod Poore, and I will NOT continue redirecting traffic from this domain to crazymeds.us [as I formerly did] while Jerod continues with his immature temper tantrum over adblock or continues to fail to maintain his site, fucking over his entire community and countless visitors in the process.
This mirror is unfortunately incomplete (and very slightly outdated), as /CrazyTalk/ was not included when I scraped the site (it was far too large to scrape given the site's extremely poor performance, my wish to avoid worsening the poor performance further, and other factors). If you're looking for a replacement forum, I suggest visiting https://www.crazyboards.org/forums/. There are issues with many of the mirrored pages, I am working on identifying and fixing them, but I do not have the time to address every single issue at this moment (although by now the majority of these issues have been resolved). Dynamic content is obviously completely broken (this is beyond my control), and the loss of /CrazyTalk/ is quite bad given how much good user-generated info was on there, but you have Jerod to "thank" for that. Maybe I'll bring it back online at some point, but it wouldn't be the same as before. For now, I suggest visiting CrazyBoards instead.
Note (Oct 9 2018): Additional updates regarding the status of this site will be posted on https://info.crazymeds.net

Here's how Alexa's erroneous take on our traffic compares with other sites:

(:Alexa:)

"Traffic rank" being where we stand among the however many ''active'' websites on the freaking Internet
The consensus of best guesses puts that at around half a billion (500,000,000).  So if the number on the button is once again below 50,000[^##hah^], that places us in the top 0.01% of sites as far as traffic is concerned.  When I phrase it that way, the ~18K people a day Alexa managed to count[^##count^] at peak traffic in 2013 seemed far more impressive than it was.  If you check out [[http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/crazymeds.net|the Alexa page for Crazymeds]] you can see where we rank for US sites - no idea how many of those there are - along with other traffic stats.  Alexa is supposedly the closest thing to a standard for measuring traffic and other statistical information about websites, but as you can see from above that's utter bullshit.

I presume other sites with fora have the same problem with accurate traffic counts that I have; but only those sites where the forum is a large, if not the primary component of their traffic, will be adversely affected in their ranking
.
to:
Because of Alexa's inability to count forum traffic, they under-reported 60K unique visitors and 2M pageviews for May 2015, I've decided to stop doing their job for themI've pulled their code from the site.  Whatever Alexa reports is now as accurate as any other website valuation service.

[^##count In reality the average daily number of visitors in April and May of 2013 was 20K daily visitors, of which 14K were unique.  Alexa's count of unique visitors was correct up through August 2013.  I don't know what happened then, but after that it was just as wrong as its count of total visitors.  Then in December of 2013 the discrepancy between Alexa's count and reality began growing.  ^]

Weird or not, I think Awstats' numbers are much closer to reality because they jive with AdSense's.  I have channels for different meds and other pages, so I'm able to get revenue figures for individual pages and groups of pages.  Nearly all of the most popular pages are part of ad channels that consist of multiple pages, but not all of them.  So here are the AdSense page impressions for some of the top pages with a single page in a channel:
||width=40%
||'''Page''' || '''Page Views'''||
||Home Page  ||          47,137||
||Effexor    ||            7,139||
||Celexa    ||            3,642||

How do those figures jive with Awstats'?
# AdSense won't be counting smartphones for individual pages, so anyone visiting a page with a smartphone won't be showing up here.
# The way the wiki handles the difference between upper- and lower-case URLs means the two are counted separately.  There weren't many people who landed on main/homepage, but Awstats found 1,099 meds/effexor pageviews.  Analytics, though, was able to track only 7.  With meds/celexa the difference was only 295 and 3.
# Which makes Awstats' count for Effexor 7,341 and Celexa 3,756. 

Factor in ad blocking and smartphones and you can see why I think Awstats are the ''real'' numbers for visitors, pageviews, etc.

Why doesn't Alexa count all the forum traffic?  The last time the Alexabot crawled the site it didn't crawl anywhere near all the pages there are, but that doesn't explain the difference in URLs that show up in both Alexa and Analytics.  I'm stumped.

I've found the source of the huge discrepancy in the traffic numbers between Alexa, Google Analytics, and Awstats - how they count forum traffic.  Awstats includes people using the Tapatalk app, Google doesn't appear to be and Alexa certainly doesn't.  In fact, Alexa misses a ''huge'' amount of forum traffic, despite my having the code on all of the forum skins and giving the Alexabot free rein to crawl where it wants.  First we'll compare the traffic numbers for the top twenty-five pages on the site for March, according to Alexa and Google:

||
||'''Alexa's Top 25''' ||'''Google's Top 25''' ||
||Attach:AlexaTop25March.jpg ||Attach:AnalyticsTop25March.jpg ||

The numbers for wiki pages (everything with /pmwiki/pmwiki.php/ in the URL) are close enough for the two.  Alexa still undercounts, but not by much.  The big difference is in the forum (URLs with /CrazyTalk/).  For the pages displayed there's a difference of about 8,000 pageviews.  The true extent of the discrepancy is easily seen in the total percentage of pageviews.  Both Alexa and Google have the same top three wiki pages: the Home Page, Wellbutrin, and the Medication List.  Alexa shows they account for 4.7%, 1.9%, and 1.3% respectively.  Google gives them 3.89%, 1.65%, and 1.08%.

The nearly-3,000 views of Site.Login represent a combination of people trying to crack the wiki and a frequent error that happens when someone accesses the wiki from more than one IP address.  I hope to have dealt with both situations, as I didn't know it was ''that'' bad.
 
Now let's look at Awstats, which counts things somewhat differently:

Revenue still sucks so much ass because the click-through rate on the wiki is below 0.25%.  Ad-blocking software and ads with little relevance are going to kill this site.  While I've been willing to keep hanging on and trying to get past my ever-worsening social anxiety to deal with alternative revenue sources that involve dealing with humans, my suddenly deteriorating health has forced me to put Crazymeds up for sale.

It still doesn't help that either the Algorithm for desktops is still forcing Crazymeds' drug pages lower and lower in the rankings, and still sometimes removing them entirely from the search results, while they show up in the top ten in Google's mobile
searches.  And in Bing searches.  Still more evidence someone at Google is fucking with me, especially since other things have been fucked with.  I've been on Scientology's shitlist for over 20 years, and there are plenty of pitiful sociopaths whose lives suck more than mine and have nothing better to do than try to make my life worse than theirs.  Good luck with that, fat-assholes.  I may be a loner who lives on the fringe of civilization, but at least I have children and other people who actually ''care'' about me.  Nothing you do can change that.  My health sucks syphilitic donkey dong, but I'm not leaving oily rectal seepage on the chair in my cubicle, nor paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to learn that I mock up my reactive mind or how to use my Thetan hand to swat bugs at the distance a flyswatter could easily reach.

If you want to see the complicated math behind it, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PageRank|see this Wikipedia page]]. "Quality" is ''highly'' subjective, as lots of pages with less traffic and fewer links have higher page ranks than Crazymeds.  Why?  Because those sites aren't about being mentally interesting.  Or if they are, the sites are by and for those nutjobs who know their place in society, and are linked to by sites usually run by and for "family, friends and caregivers" instead of trashy sites by and for mentally interesting scumbuckets like you and me.

Traffic hasn't been as depressing for quite some time.  I just haven't felt like updating the stats page.  Revenue still sucks so much ass because the click-through rate on the wiki is down to 0.25%.  Ad-blocking software and ads with little relevance are going to kill this site.  It also doesn't help that either the Algorithm periodically changes its mind about where to rank Crazymeds' drug pages, sometimes removing them entirely from the search results, only to return them to where they used to be one to $SomeRandomNumber weeks later, or someone at Google is fucking with me.  My money is still on the latter, especially since other things have been fucked with.  I've been on Scientology's shitlist for over 20 years, and there are plenty of pitiful sociopaths whose lives suck more than mine and have nothing better to do than try to make my life worse than theirs.  Good luck with that, fat-assholes.  I may be a loner who lives on the fringe of civilization, but at least I have children and other people who actually ''care'' about me.  Nothing you do can change that.

Overall traffic is somewhat depressing, except in one aspect: the Crazy Talk forum is stronger than ever. 

Revenue still sucks so much ass because the
click-through rate on the wiki is down to 0.25%.  Ad-blocking software and ads with little relevance are going to kill this site.  While I've been willing to keep hanging on and trying to get past my ever-worsening social anxiety to deal with alternative revenue sources that involve dealing with humans, my suddenly deteriorating health has forced me to put Crazymeds up for sale.

It still doesn't help that either the Algorithm for desktops is still forcing Crazymeds' drug pages lower and lower in the rankings, and still sometimes removing them entirely from the search results, while they show up in the top ten in Google's mobile searches.  And in Bing searches.  Still more evidence someone at Google is fucking with me, especially since other things have been fucked

!!!I am Just a Worthless Liar
Unless you own, or work for, a website, you may not be aware of sites that attempt to place monetary value on other people's websites.  They're trying to make money through advertising, helping you sell your site, or selling their services as search engine optimization (SEO) wizards.  The ones that are the most wrong usually fall into that last category, and claim to have all sorts of ideas as to how you can increase your revenue, visibility on search engines, etc.  Accurate numbers for traffic are equally difficult when you don't own the site or don't have access to all the tools I have.  I'm damn confident that 19-20 thousand people a day are looking at ''something'', even if it's only [[https://crazymeds.net/PriapismSurgery.pdf|the paper about the messy, painful surgery required to take care of Viagra-induced priapism]].  Anyone getting their numbers from Compete (W3 Snoop, e.g.) or Quantcast is an idiot.  Especially those using Compete to estimate traffic.  When I had the Quantcast code installed it was picking up only about a third of the traffic Alexa was.  Compete was even worse.  I'd like to know where some of them get their data for how much I make from AdSense.  A random number generator is my best guess. 

So these sites are often hilarious examples of the adage "Garbage in, garbage out."  While some manage to get fairly accurate traffic and revenue data, that doesn't always translate to anything close to what a website - especially when it's yours - is worth. I've highlighted the truly egregious numbers in red, and emphasized the numbers that are close to accurate in bold.  There are dozens more such sites.  This should be enough to give you an idea of how little value website evaluators have.  These numbers are subject to change, so are probably different if you look at them now[^##doo^].  I've throw together [[https://crazymeds.net/valuefree.html|an HTML page just for their stupid widgets & badges]]. Not all of them update automagically.  Especially not Check Website Price's, which has the so-called value ''hardcoded in the fucking HTML''.  It takes real balls to double down on incompetence like that.  Their guesstimate is utterly useless and nobody there can code worth shit, so they're going stand by that worthless evaluation permenately!  And they have the temerity to question the validity of a Google Page Rank of ''5''?  [^##doo Especially DooWebRank.  Their numbers change wildly every time you visit.  On the same day.  Or if you switch between www.domain.com and domain.com and back to www.domain.com^]

It makes me feel a little bit better, finding so many sites that suck so much, much more than I ever could.

.

Source is for daily visitors, and is either what they have on the page or my best guess[^##source^]. You'll notice how a lot are indicated "Alexa?"  In my experience Alexa consistently lowballs the numbers by 30-50% - more if you don't have their code everywhere - so that indicates I'm guessing they are extrapolating from that.  Credibility is an entirely subjective ranking that I use in order to sort these from the most to least accurate.

[^##worth A far more accurate way to read that would be: "94% of websites are worthless."  I'll leave it up to you to decide where Crazymeds fits in that 94/6 divide.  This site has nothing visible except their guess about Crazymeds' value.  The only reason I have them here is for this footnote. And that $400K is the most reasonable number I've seen regarding Crazymeds' current worth. So why so far now the credibility scale?  Because they don't publish the data that went into their guess. ^]
[^##kill I'd kill for that sort of traffic and revenue this joker thinks I have. If I had a serious offer for $600K, Crazymeds would have a new owner in a matter of days.  Unless I was actually making over $600 a day. ^]
[^##compete Which just goes to show you how ludicrous Compete's numbers are. ^]
[^##wow Best useless statistic ever.  If this is for SEO Stratego, count me in. ^]
[^##dp Whatever the fuck "Depth Potential" is.^]
[^##seeo Check out their About page.  It reads like it was run through Google's translation tool.  Their name is different on different pages, with the copyright notice having the only consistent one.  Which is seeohunt.^]
[^##source If they're going to guess what my traffic is, I may as well return the favor. ^]
[^##adsense They write that I can make up to $16 ''a month'' with AdSense! Man, those guys must make millions.  They offer great SEO tips, like link exchanges, buying links, and other things Google frowns upon.^]

If you don't have, or don't wish to use either one of those accounts, perhaps you can use another social bookmarking service.  I cover the differences between share and like, and go into more detail about all the different services on [[Sources/Support|the support page]]. 

The most interesting way of looking at a site's popularity that I've come across was Web Empires.  They like visual and statistical metaphors and analogies, along the lines of, "If you lined up all the empty bottles of all the meds I've taken end to end they would reach..."[^##bot^] So when they looked at Crazymeds they saw:
* If crazymeds.net were a country, we would have a population larger than British Virgin Islands', and just a little shy of San Marino's.
* 1 in every 59,172 internet users visit crazymeds.net daily
* We'd be almost 50% larger than the largest Universal Life Church[^##moon^] mass wedding.
Too bad they don't do stuff like that any more.  They're just another boring stat machine like all the others.

That great sucking sound you hear isn't H. Ross Perot's NAFTA-inspired nightmares[^##old^], it's my life.  Traffic is down, gross revenue is ''way'' down, and my cat was eaten by something.  While I have other reasons to keep living, they aren't especially important-seeming at the moment.  Normally looking at and writing about statistics would calm me down. It's still not working.  Sorry.  I only recently noticed I managed to fuck up AwStats.  Again.  In a new way.  Figures.  I'll try to fix that[^##lp^].
[^##lp I could actually enter a support ticket for it and the Lunarpages tech staff could fix it in under a day
, depending on their work load.  But it's one of those things I have to do myself if at all possible. ^]
 
Looking back at August we see that traffic is back
to where we were in March.  Compared with previous years that's a shitload of traffic.  The number of people finding the site from search engines is back up to 80%, which is remarkable considering how badly we're doing in the SEO wars.  Oh, wait, only half as many people have been arriving to the site directly via bookmarks or something.  Either regular visitors to the forum all went on vacation last month, or making the Crazy Talk forum a kinder, gentler place was far more unpopular than I imagined. 

As I wrote last month, people who find Crazymeds by way of a search engine or a link from another site usually land on a wiki page, while people who arrive here because they have the place bookmarked usually go directly to the forum; and people who land on the wiki are more likely to click on ads than those who arrive on the forum[^##ctr^].  While traffic is steadily climbing, revenue is steadily dropping as the number of people arriving at Crazymeds from search engines similarly declines from being 85% of all traffic to 65%.  Another thing that's really killing me is a third of the people who use Crazymeds do so on a phone or similar small device.  I don't have the same opportunities to {-bombard them with ads-} enhance their browsing experience in the same way as I can for {-dinosaurs-} traditionalists who use desktops.  {-Suckers-} Early adopters with tablets can get either the {-practically ad-free-} limited-feature version or the {-ad-saturated-} content-rich version depending on {-if the server is on the rag-} numerous factors.  You're free to [[Main/SelectSkin|select the display theme you dislike the least]].[^##cmot^]  I go into more detail about what it all means on [[Sources/Support|the page on how you can help support Crazymeds]].

[^##old Yes, I really am ''that'' old. ^]
[^##ctr {-If I'm lucky 1 person in 100 who visits the wiki will click on an ad.  Seriously.  If more 1% of the people who read a page click on an ad I'm doing ''really'' well.-} Let me rephrase that.  Up through March 2012 the average rate people were clicking on ads was slightly more than 1%.  In 2004 - 2006 the rate was 1.5% - 2.0%. From 2007 through March 2012 it was slightly over 1%.  Today it's just under 0.5%, with a little better than 1 person in 150 who is reading the wiki clicking on an ad, while on the forum it's barely 1 person in 300 who does so.  To everyone using ad blocking software: Why do you think so many sites that used to have all of their content available for free, and are still in business, are now charging money if you want to read them?  If everything is supposed to be free, how come I need to pay for groceries and my meds?^]
[^##cmot Just call me Dibbler, because I'm cutting my own throat to keep you people happy. ^]

(Just google the term)  Did you run across an offensive site and ask AOL to take it down?  Or is it a desperate ploy at search engine optimization? I make a living off of Crazymeds.  I don't have any investors.  Over 95% of the money comes from ads, and over 95% of the people who click on the ads are those who found the place via a search engine.  I'm the one who needs every desperate SEO ploy in the book, but I don't stoop that low.^]

!!!The People Like Us
Sites with sites supposedly like Crazymeds:
* [[http://www.moreofit.com/similar-to/www.crazymeds.net/Top_10_Sites_Like_crazymeds.net/|moreofit]].  moreofit uses tags to determine similarity.  This has a lot of advantages and a few disadvantages.  You do get a large number of really-to-not-so similar sites interspersed with entries that make it look a lot crappier than it really is.  Such as the most similar site being crazymeds.org, numerous entries for Merck (although what little there is of the Merck Manual is certainly similar) and other members of Big Pharma.
** The thing that annoys the fuck out of me is they don't define what they mean by "popularity."
* [[http://topalternate.com/crazymeds.net/|Top Alternate]].  The grammar is a bit clunky and the selection isn't as good as moreofit, but they have great idea of what "alternate" actually means, which makes it worth looking at.  I can't think of a more dissimilar site than the fear-mongers, but they are certainly an ''alternative'' to us on the subject of psychiatric chemotherapy.  They are also one of very few sites that, when they indicate such a thing, noticed our content may not be appropriate for little kids!  I love it when people pay attention.  Plus you get to rate how alike or not a site is.

Looking back at August we see that traffic is back to where we were in March.  Compared with previous years that's a shitload of traffic.  The number of people finding the site from search engines is back up to 80%, which is remarkable considering how badly we're doing in the SEO wars.  Oh, wait, only half as many people have been arriving to
the site directly via bookmarks or something.  Either regular visitors to the forum all went on vacation last month, or making the Crazy Talk forum a kinder, gentler place was far more unpopular than I imagined.

I've got the Facebook likes and Google +1 at the top and toward the bottom of every page in the drug wiki and all forum pages.  There are a lot more ways of sharing the love toward the bottom as well. Those should give you some idea as to how popular individual pages are.
to:
At the top and bottom of each page there are buttons to share or like it via Facebook, Google plus, and every other social media/bookmarking/whatever service there is via [[http://addthis.com/|AddThis]].  It would really, really help if you flag every page you've found helpful and/or entertaining with a G+ and/or a Facebook share.  I realize there is a hell of a lot of stigma attached to having brain cooties, and a share on Google+ and Facebook, unlike those in AA, is fairly public, whereas a like is much less so.  Which is why I have both options available. If you don't have, or don't wish to use either one of those accounts, perhaps you can use another social bookmarking service.  I cover the differences between share and like, and go into more detail about all the different services on [[Sources/Support|the support page]].

It's August, and traffic traffic is starting to pick up a bit.  Unfortunately more and more of the traffic is coming to the site directly and not via search enginesWhy is that bad?  Because people who find Crazy Meds by way of entering the name of a drug in Google (with or without something like "side effects" or "dosage") click on ads, while people to go directly to the forum, or go to a medication page from a link elsewhere, generally don't click on ads.  While traffic is steadily climbing, revenue is steadily dropping as the number of people arriving at Crazy Meds from search engines similarly declines from being 85% of all traffic to 65%.  Another thing that's really killing me is a third of the people who use Crazy Meds do so on a phone or similar small device.  I don't have the same opportunities to {-bombard them with ads-} enhance their browsing experience in the same way as I can for {-dinosaurs-} traditionalists who use desktops.  {-Suckers-} Early adopters with tablets can get either the {-practically ad-free-} limited-feature version or the {-ad-saturated-} content-rich version depending on {-if the server is on the rag-} numerous factorsYou're free to [[https://crazymeds.net/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SelectSkin|select the display theme you like the most]].[^##cmot^]

Unless you own, or work for, a website, you may not be aware of sites that attempt to place monetary value on other people's websites.  They're trying to make money through advertising, helping you sell your site, or selling their services as search engine optimization (SEO) wizards.  The ones that are the most wrong usually fall into that last category, and claim to have all sorts of ideas as to how you can increase your revenue[^##adsense^], visibility on search engines, etc.  Their formulae for calculating how much a site is worth tend to be ridiculously simple - often no more than the number of links multiplied by something in the neighborhood of US$1.00. As I wrote above, getting accurate data about links is extremely difficult.  Accurate numbers for traffic are equally difficult when you don't own the site or don't have access to all the tools I have.  I'm damn confident that 19-20 thousand people a day are looking at ''something'', even if it's only [[https://crazymeds.net/PriapismSurgery.pdf|the paper about the messy, painful surgery required to take care of Viagra-induced priapism]].  Anyone getting their numbers from Compete (W3 Snoop, e.g.) or Quantcast is an idiot.  Especially those using Compete to estimate traffic.  When I had the Quantcast code installed it was picking up only about a third of the traffic Alexa was.  Compete was even worse.  I'd like to know where some of them get their data for how much I make from AdSense.  A random number generator is my best guess.

Source is either what they have on the page or my best guess[^##source^].

And that $400K is the most reasonable number I've seen regarding Crazy Meds' current worth. So why so far now the credibility scale?  Because they don't publish the data that went into their guess. ^]

This year the drop in numbers is better than some and worse than others, so I can't bitch about it too much.

It's August, and traffic traffic is starting to pick up a bit.  Unfortunately more and more of the traffic is coming to the site directly and not via search engines.  Why is that bad?  Because people who find Crazy Meds by way of entering the name of a drug in Google (with or without something like "side effects" or "dosage") click on ads, while people to go directly to the forum, or go to a medication page from a link elsewhere, generally don't click on ads.  While traffic is steadily climbing, revenue is steadily dropping as the number of people arriving at Crazy Meds from search engines similarly declines from being 85% of all traffic to 65%.  Another thing that's really killing me is a third of the people who use Crazy Meds do so on a phone or similar small device.  I don't have the same opportunities to {-bombard them with ads-} enhance their browsing experience in the same way as I can for {-dinosaurs-} traditionalists who use desktops.  {-Suckers-} Early adopters with tablets can get either the {-practically ad-free-} limited-feature version or the {-ad-saturated-} content-rich version depending on {-if the server is on the rag-} numerous factors.  You're free to [[https://crazymeds.net/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SelectSkin|select the display theme you like the most]].[^##cmot^]

With the data from Analytics and AwStats you can see how, whenever fucking Google makes any fucking changes to their fucking search engine algorithm, traffic fucking drops like a fucking brick as Crazy Meds pages fucking plummet in the fucking results for the fucking meds everyfuckingbody searches for. 

Sorry.  This site is my day job.  Not only do I get panicky at times when money is concerned, I'm obsessed with statistics.  And I shouldn't complain about it so fucking much, as traffic has been increasing by about 50% a year.  And some sites, like ''Car and Driver'', saw their traffic (and probably revenue) drop by over 50% and it ''never'' recovered.

"Traffic rank" being where we stand among the however many ''active'' websites on the freaking Internet.  The consensus of best guesses puts that at around half a billion (500,000,000).  So if the number on the button is below 50,000, that places us in the top 0.01% of sites as far as traffic is concerned.  When I phrase it that way, the ~16K people a day Alexa manages to count seems far more impressive than it is.  If you check out [[http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/crazymeds.net|the Alexa page for Crazy Meds]] you can see where we rank for US sites - no idea how many of those there are - along with other traffic stats.

The most interesting way of looking at a site's popularity that I've come across is [[http://webempires.org/|Web Empires]].  They like visual and statistical metaphors and analogies, along the lines of, "If you lined up all the empty bottles of all the meds I've taken end to end they would reach..."[^##bot^] So when [[http://webempires.org/w/crazymeds.net|they look at Crazy Meds]] they see:
* If crazymeds.net were a country, we would have a population larger than British Virgin Islands', and just a little shy of San Marino's.
* 1 in every 59,172 internet users visit crazymeds.net daily
* We'd be almost 50% larger than the largest Universal Life Church[^##moon^] mass wedding.

So these sites are often hilarious examples of the adage "Garbage in, garbage out."  On the other hand, some manage to get fairly accurate traffic and revenue data, although that doesn't always translate to anything close to what a website - especially when it's yours - is worth. I've highlighted the truly egregious numbers in red, and emphasized the numbers that are close to accurate in bold.

(Just google the term)  Did you run across an offensive site and ask AOL to take it down?  Or is it a desperate ploy at search engine optimization?

Credibility is an entirely subjective ranking that I've based on the accuracy of the data displayed at the above sites and their guess as to the worth of Crazy Meds.  The best of the bunch provided no data whatsoever, and they may have pulled that number out of their ass, but it's the closest one to what I feel the site is worth.  After that I use their stats more than what they say Crazy Meds is worth.  Although there's not much else to go on for the last three.  URL Appraisal's count of 156K unique monthly visitors is not all that far off, so why the hell we're worth only $50 to them is a mystery to me.  Or why Evaluate Any Website thinks we're worth eight grand when we have absolutely NO revenue.  On the flip side is Worth of the Web's numbers.  I don't know if that guy is projecting what he thinks is possible using his SEO techniques, trying to make me feel better, or just uses a method of random number generation that is utterly different than all the others.  He uses [[http://www.google.com.tr|Google's Turkish domain]] for Google-related data, which is an interesting statistical tactic.  If I had a serious offer for $600K, Crazy Meds would have a new owner in a matter of days.  Unless I was actually making over $600 a day.

You'll notice how the better ones all all indicated "Alexa?"  In my experience Alexa consistently lowballs the numbers by 30-50%, so they might be extrapolating from that.  Credibility is an entirely subjective ranking that I've based on the accuracy of the data displayed at the above sites and their guess as to the worth of Crazy Meds.  The best of the bunch provided no data whatsoever, and they may have pulled that number out of their ass, but it's the closest one to what I feel the site is worth.  After that I use their stats more than what they say Crazy Meds is worth.  Although there's not much else to go on for the last ones.  I have no idea why URL Appraisal translates 156K unique visitors into $50, while Check Website Price takes approximately the same number and says $64K.  Or why Evaluate Any Website thinks we're worth eight grand when we have absolutely NO revenue.  On the flip side is Worth of the Web's numbers.  I don't know if that guy is projecting what he thinks is possible using his SEO techniques, trying to make me feel better, or just uses a method of random number generation that is utterly different than all the others.  He uses [[http://www.google.com.tr|Google's Turkish domain]] for Google-related data, which is an interesting statistical tactic.  If I had a serious offer for $600K, Crazy Meds would have a new owner in a matter of days.  Unless I was actually making over $600 a day.

Unless you own, or work for, a website, you may not be aware of sites that attempt to place monetary value on other people's websites.  They're trying to make money through advertising, helping you sell your site, or selling their services as search engine optimization (SEO) wizards.  The ones that are the most wrong usually fall into that last category, and claim to have all sorts of ideas as to how you can increase your revenue[^##adsense^], visibility on search engines, etc.  Their formulae for calculating how much a site is worth tend to be ridiculously simple - often no more than the number of links multiplied by something in the neighborhood of US$1.00.

* Alexa, and Bing aren't counting links to crazymeds.org or crazymeds.com.
* Bing searches for "crazymeds.net" in the text of web sites, which doesn't always translate to an actual link.
* Google does a "link:" search, which is utterly useless.  I know there are far more than 28 freaking links.  The same results are returned, give or take a few, for link:crazymeds.com, link:crazymeds.org, and for specific URLs.
* When Webmaster Tools had well over 300,000 links almost half of those were from Treato.com, which is nothing but a healthcare forum aggregator.  As there are over 130,000 posts on the forum, there is a lot of crap to aggregate.
* WT also counts the same link every time it shows up on a site, so a very busy blog with Crazy Meds on the blog roll can generate hundreds of, even a thousand or more links.
* I have no idea how SEOmoz and Majestic SEO go about determining links.

In addition to our [[http://www.hon.ch/HONcode/Conduct.html?HONConduct354468|Health on the Net accreditation]], Crazy Meds meets a few other standards.  Not that it's all that difficult to accomplish, but this way you know for sure we don't have any computer cooties.

You can now take a look at [[https://crazymeds.net/awsum/|the stats AwStats has been collecting]], so you can see the ''actual'' number of people who visit this site, including those who do nothing more than grab PI sheets and other documents without looking at a single ad-rich page, and spammers who register 20 (or more) accounts on the forum, which are banned before the validation e-mail is sent out. 

With the data from Analytics and AwStats you can see how, whenever fucking Google makes any
fucking changes to their fucking search engine algorithm, traffic fucking drops like a fucking brick as Crazy Meds pages fucking plummet in the fucking results for the fucking meds everyfuckingbody searches for. I shouldn't complain about it so fucking much, as traffic has been increasing by about 50% a year.  And some sites, like ''Car and Driver'', saw their traffic (and probably revenue) drop by over 50% and it ''never'' recovered.

"Global rank" being where we stand among the however many ''active'' websites on the freaking Internet.  The best guesses to how many that is that agree with each other is around half a billion (500,000,000).  So if the number on the button is below 50,000, that puts us in the top 0.01% of sites as far as traffic is concerned.  When I put it that way, the 14K people a day Alexa manages to count seems far more impressive than it is.  If you check out [[http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/crazymeds.net#|the Alexa page for Crazy Meds]] you can see where we rank for US sites - no idea how many of those there are - along with other traffic stats.

With the data from Analytics and AwStats you can see how, whenever fucking Google makes any fucking changes to their fucking search engine algorithm, traffic fucking drops like a fucking brick as Crazy Meds pages fucking plummet in the fucking results for the fucking meds everyfuckingbody searches for.  I shouldn't complain about it so fucking much, as traffic has been increasing by about 50% a year.

Trying to get an accurate count of the number of links in is akin to getting the [[Meds/LamictalPharmacokinetics#toc2|average half-life of Lamictal]], everyone has a different number and I don't like any of them.[[<<]]
Alexa shows around 1,200.  Google's Webmaster Tools has 245,000, but Google itself shows 54 backlinks.  Bing has around 50,000.  Why the huge differences?  Alexa and Google probably aren't counting links to crazymeds.org or crazymeds.net, which not only resolve here but, if they are to specific pages, will go to new versions of said pages (e.g. a link to http://www.crazymeds.org/lexapro.html will go to the new Lexapro page), while Webmaster Tools and Bing are.  Bing and WT are also counting the same link every time it shows up on a site, so a busy blog with Crazy Meds on the blog roll can generate hundreds of links.

Added lines 68-79:

I've got the Facebook likes and Google +1 at the top and toward the bottom of every page, and a lot more ways of sharing the love toward the bottom as well.  One thing you'd see only if you have it installed in your browser is the Google PageRank:

(=html=) <!-- WebRankStats.com Google Pagerank Widget Code --> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://widget.webrankstats.com/pagerank_big.js"></script> <!-- End WebRankStats.com Google Pagerank Widget Code --> (=htmlend=)

The above is, fortunately, the PageRank for the [[Main/HomePage|home page]], and not this page.  For those of you who don't give a rat's ass about such things (i.e. you don't earn a living off of your website or pretend to know how to help people make money off teh InterGoogles) [[http://www.google.com/competition/howgooglesearchworks.html|let Google explain how it works]]:
>>bquote<<
PageRank works by counting the number and quality of links to a page to determine a rough estimate of how important the website is. The underlying assumption is that more important websites are likely to receive more links from other websites.

If you want to see the complicated math that goes behind it, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PageRank|Wikipedia has a page about it]].

With the data from Analytics and AwStats you can see how, thanks to whatever fucking changes fucking Google has made in their fucking search engine algorithm, traffic has been down since the middle of February; which follows the same fucking pattern as in 20fucking12.

With the data from Analytics and AwStats you can see how, whenever fucking Google makes any fucking changes to their fucking search engine algorithm, traffic fucking drops like a fucking brick as Crazy Meds pages fucking plummet in the fucking results for the fucking meds everyfuckingbody searches for.  I shouldn't complain about it so fucking much, as traffic has been increasing by about 50% a year.

The current AwStats period should, but may not always be up to date, which is one of the reasons why I have Alexa and
Quantcast.  Who knows when I'll next update the Analytics data, which is another reason why I have Alexa, Quantcast, and finally figured out a way to make AwStats data available without the annoying security issue.

"Global rank" being where we stand among the however many ''active'' websites on the freaking Internet.  The best guesses to how many that is that agree with each other is around half a billion (500,000,000).  So if the number on the button is below 50,000, that puts us in the top 0.01% of sites as far as traffic is concerned.  When I put it that way, the 14K people a day Alexa manages to count seems far more impressive than it is.  If you check out [[http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/crazymeds.net#|the Alexa page for Crazy Meds]] you can see where we rank for US sites - no idea how many of those there are - along with other traffic stats.

!!!Traffic Congestion
I don't know where the hell sites like Quantcast and Compete come up with their numbers.  Even when I had their code included their stats were way off.  When the domain changed from
.org to .us Quantcast hard a difficult time dealing with it, and was completely unable to handle the wiki software.  Compete was bad enough when I had their code in the .org days, so I didn't even bother including it in the wiki and new forum software.  So I present screen shots of Google Analytics and AWStats.  There are discrepancies between the two, but that is because Analytics counts only visitors with Java enabled who visit the wiki or forum, while AWStats counts ''everybody,'' including people who do nothing more than grab a .pdf file.

First let's look at the traffic for the most recent 12 months:[[<<]]
%width=1000%[[https://crazymeds.net/AnalyticsOct2011-Sep2012.png | http://www.crazymeds.us/AnalyticsOct2011-Sep2012.png"Traffic Oct 2011-Sept 2012"]] | [-Click to enlarge-]%%

Those severe troughs are from days when we had technical difficulties and were off the air.  The Dow Jones-like plummet from 16,000 Java-enabled visitors a day in December 2011 to barely over 9,000
on weekdays in January reflects when Google changed its search algorithm and Crazy Meds pages suddenly weren't showing up in the top ten results of most people's searches.  When 80% of your traffic comes from search engines, your site lives or dies at the fickle whims of search algorithms.

Here's AWStats' view of the total traffic for September 2012
.  First the high-level summary of traffic for mid-April (when LunarPages tech support fixed what I broke) through when I took these snapshots in October:[[<<]]
%width=1000%[[https://crazymeds.net/AWStatsMonthlySeptt2012.png | https://crazymeds.net/AWStatsMonthlySept2012.png"AWStats Traffic Overview Mid-April Through Mid-October 2012"]] | [-Click to enlarge-]%%

The sine wave pattern in the Analytics chart reflects weekday vs. weekend traffic, which means a lot of the mentally interesting have jobs.  Looking at the AWStats data for September we can see much more detail about daily visits:[[<<]]
%width=1000%[[https://crazymeds.net/AWStatsDaysofMonthSept2012.png | https://crazymeds.net/AWStatsDaysofMonthSept2012.png"Daily Traffic September 2012"]] | [-Click to enlarge-]%%

The hourly traffic shows the mentally interesting aren't as uniformly nocturnal as most people may think.  With 85% of the site's readers in North America, and 81% in the US[^##now^], and the hours set to Mountain Time (GMT -6, -7 during winter) "we" (although rarely I) stay up late, but not that much later than most Americans these days.[[<<]]

[^##now As of now.  Since 2007 it's 83% are in the US, 87% in North America.^]

!!!It's a Search Party
Here's how people get to Crazy Meds:[[<<]]
%width=1000%[[https://crazymeds.net/SourcesSept2012.png | https://crazymeds.net/SourcesSept2012.png"Traffic Sources September 2012"]] | [-Click to enlarge-]%%
In September 2012 87% of traffic came from search engines, down slightly from 89% in August.  94% of search traffic still comes from Google.  Again, that's from Google Analytics, which means 80% of everybody who read at least one page on either the wiki or the forum (i.e. they didn't just grab a .pdf file) and had Java turned on arrived at Crazy Meds via a Google search.  Anyone who arrived via a Google search and had Java turned but landed on, say, [[https://crazymeds.net/CymbaltaKoreanSPC.pdf|the Korean language Cymbalta Summary of Product Characteristics]] and didn't go anywhere else would not be included in that stat.  Why is having Java on important?  Because if they don't have Java enabled they won't see any of Google's AdSense ads.  If someone doesn't see an ad they can't click on it, and I make my living with this site.  They will see ads for [[http://www.cafepress.com/crazymeds|Straitjacket T-shirts]], [[http://www.zazzle.com/straitjackettshirts|the Straitjacket T-Shirts Annex]] at Zazzle, and [[http://astore.amazon.com/crazymedsorg-20|Burning Mind Books]], but I make around $100 a month, on a good month, from those efforts.  It doesn't matter if they have Java on or not if all they do is grab a .pdf file.

I Included the landing page for direct traffic for the hell of it.  It's interesting to see where people who have the site bookmarked, or who copy an URL into a browser window land.  The two different URLs used for the main forum page artificially lower where it should show up, which would be between Neurontin and Lexapro.

Instead of just taking my word for it, how about some independent measurements.  Plus I don't update this page as often as I'd like to.

!!!Words Matter
With nearly 90% of the traffic to this site arriving via search engines, what are people searching for?  Here's Analytics' take on it:[[<<]]
%width=1000%[[https://crazymeds.net/KeywordSept2012.png | https://crazymeds.net/KeywordSept2012.png"Analytics Keywords September 2012"]] | [-Click to enlarge-]%%
As "(not provided)" is the most popular search term for Analytics (over 77,000 searches this month) I need to use the page where someone winds up from the result of their search (the landing page) in order to extrapolate what their search term was.  While it could have been a phrase, or even an entire sentence, for the top searches whatever "(not provided)" was, it was probably a single word.  Brand names are typically used more often than generic names of drugs.  Unless it took them to the site's homepage.  That could be anything, but usually "crazy meds", "crazymeds", or something like that.

As AWStats sees it:[[<<]]
%width=1000%[[https://crazymeds.net/AWStatsKeywordsSept2012.png | https://crazymeds.net/AWStatsKeywordsSept2012.png"AWStats Keywords September 2012"]] | [-Click to enlarge-]%%

Adding it all up approximately a third of all search traffic, thus around 30% of ''all traffic'' (Java-enabled or not) to Crazy Meds, comes from people who enter nothing more than the name of a med.

As for the weird results like "avg" and "homepage", see [[http://winterdrake.com/awstats-tip-removing-chromebar-from-search-keyphrases/|this article that explains it]].  While Analytics gets too little data, AWstats picks up extraneous crap.

I always like to see what sort of wacky search terms lead people to Crazy Meds, answer the questions I think were behind those searches, and see where the hell they show up when I type them into Google, but the site is too popular for that now!  There are so many search terms used that AWStats can't display them all, and even Analytics pukes on a month's worth of data.  But a few pulled from random days in September:
* September 13th.
** '''Q:''' Is Abilify a one trick pony?
** '''A:''' No.  But it's been a long-ass time since I've read or heard the phrase "one trick pony."  Not only that, Google couldn't find the page that brought this person to Crazy Meds.
** '''Q:''' urine smells like provigil
** '''A:''' Whose urine?  How can you tell?  Does Provigil have that much of a scent?  Actually, I'd rather not know.  Modafinil is ''extensively'' metabolized, and only 10% of whatever you took should remain unmetabolized in your urine, so either you're taking a shitload of Provigil and not drinking very much water, have an incredibly keen sense of smell, or your liver has failed.
* September 17th.
** '''Q:''' legs collapse getting out bed after teva trazodone and alcool
** '''A:''' Are you complaining that you're still alive?
* September 23th.
** '''Q:''' bad sex while taking paxil
** '''A:''' Consider yourself fortunate that you're having ''any'' sex while taking Paxil.
** '''Q:''' kangaroo tumour up anus
** '''A:''' It's not what we usually cover, even if Crazy Meds does show up at number 4 on the Google search for that one.  I suggest the handle of a ball peen hammer and a copious amount of 10W40 motor oil.


Google's Webmaster's Tools has a lot of...approximations.  They're useful, they just aren't real statistics.  This screen confirms that many of people who reach Crazy Meds via search engines do so by entering nothing more than the name of a drug.[[<<]]
%width=1000%[[https://crazymeds.net/WebToolsKeywordsSept2012.png | https://crazymeds.net/WebToolsKeywordsSept2012.png"Webmaster's Tools Keywords September 2012"]] | [-Click to enlarge-]%%
This screen might need a little explanation for those not familiar with it.  The Query column is what someone typed into a search engine.  Impressions is how many times a result came back with a link to Crazy Meds ''on that person's screen''.  Clicks is how many times that link was clicked, and CTR (click through rate) is how often the link was clicked as a percentage of the impressions.  100,000 impressions, 5,000 clicks = 5% CTR.  Average Position is the where the link shows up, on average, in search results.  This is highly variable and depends on stuff I do (the dark art of search engine optimization) as well as how someone has their browser set up, what their Internet options are, where they live, which browser they are using (I've tried it, it can make a difference) and a shitload of things I haven't figured out yet.  Then there's all the usual stuff like links to a site and how often it is clicked on via search engines. 

So what changed that caused all of the drug pages to fall out of the top ten, or even the top five results?  Google finally bought into the pervasive paradigm of teh Internets: life will always be like high school.  I.e. personal popularity is everything.  Suddenly it mattered that I had 'friends' on Google+ and Facebook and all the other social networking sites.  No matter what else I tried in the way of SEO nothing changed until I added the buttons to follow the site on Google+, add me to your Google circles, and like the site itself on Facebook in mid-June.  Since then the drug pages have been climbing back up the search results, traffic has been slowly climbing to where it was in late 2011.

You might be thinking, does it really matter ''that'' much?  As long as you're in the top ten, right?  Most people get ten results and all the sites on that page should get pretty much the same amount of traffic.

Wrong.

Look at the above screenshot.  Notice how the highest CTRs always correspond to the best positions?  The title of this article says it all: [[http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2049695/Top-Google-Result-Gets-36.4-of-Clicks-Study|Top Google Result Gets 36.4% of Clicks]].  What I get are really close to the averages from that study.  Being in positions 4 and 5 is vastly different than 9 and 10.  If Wellbutrin were in position 9 instead of 4 it would mean 2,000 clicks (if that) a month instead of 15,000.  If I can get Seroquel bumped up from 8 to 6 it would mean 5,000 to 8,000 clicks a month, and not 2,500.

And while it is only an approximation, there is something else about the CTR that is really cool: it's pretty close to the percentage of search engine traffic for the search term used that you're getting.  So that 9% for Wellbutrin means in September we got 9% of all traffic generated by search engines for the term "Wellbutrin." 


!!!No Matter Where You Go, There You Are
Which pages are the most popular?  For the previous 12 months Analytics says:[[<<]]
%width=1000%[[https://crazymeds.net/TopPagesSept2012.png | https://crazymeds.net/TopPagesSept2012.png"Analytics Top Pages September 2012"]] | [-Click to enlarge-]%%
A few things to explain:
* /CrazyTalk/F6547FF8-D38D-428C-B6BA-8B0567091F92.html and /CrazyTalk/ are both valid URLs for the forum's home page, and you can land on both of them as you navigate throughout the site.  So if you add the two of them together you'll find it's the second-most popular page here.
* That long URL in 12th (or 11th) place is the link for new content since your last visit to the forum.
* Calling the first page in the multipaged articles[^##first^] DrugnameBasicOverview instead of just the drug name seemed like a good idea at the time.  So a little math is needed to determine who is really the most popular.
* There is no Zyban page.  For some reason Google kept sending people to a redirect page I've had for Zyban[^##seo^] when they searched on Wellbutrin.  They've been doing that since 2006.  It wasn't until the last two weeks that they finally got the clue when someone searches on Wellbutrin they should be sent directly to the page called Wellbutrin that the redirect page is pointing to[^##keppra^].
[^##first How many people read subsequent pages?  5%.^]
[^##seo It's an SEO thing.^]
[^##keppra Now if only they would make up their minds about Keppra.^]

On this page I need to explain:
* The blacked-out URL is used for [[http://www.projecthoneypot.org/|Project Honeypot]], a spam tracking and prevention organization.
* CrazyTalk/mobiquo/mobiquo is the Tapatalk application
* BackupAd728x90.html is the ad for Straitjacket t-shirts I mentioned above
* pmwiki/pub/skins/triad/css is what makes this all look so pretty.  Unless you're on a smart phone.

!!!Where You At?
My favorite stat of them all, where are you all connecting from?  I know, 88% are from the United States and Canada and 95% are from the English-speaking world.  Going all the way back to when the .us domain was registered in 2007, here are the fifty craziest countries.  This is a sortable table, so you can see them in alphabetical order, average pages read per visit, how long they stayed, or how many visitors.  That will be far more interesting when I put up the table with all 226 (to date) countries & territories that Analytics recognizes.

As "(not provided)" is the most popular search term for Analytics (over 77,000 searches this month) I need to use the page where someone winds up from the result of their search (the landing page) in order to extrapolate what their search term was.  While it could have been a phrase, or even an entire sentence, for the top searches whatever "(not provided)" was, it was probably a single word.  Brand names are typically used more often than generic names of drugs.  Unless it took them to the site's homepage.  That could be anything, but usually "crazy meds", "crazymeds", or something like that.

** '''Q:''' urine smells like provigil
** '''A:''' Whose urine?  How can you tell?  Does Provigil have that much of a scent?  Actually, I'd rather not know.  Modafinil is ''extensively'' metabolized, and only 10% of whatever you took should remain unmetabolized in your urine, so either you're taking a shitload of Provigil and not drinking very much water, have an incredibly keen sense of smell, or your liver has failed.

** '''Q:''' legs collapse getting out bed after teva trazodone and alcool
** '''A:''' Are you complaining that you're still alive?
* September 23th.
** '''Q:''' bad sex while taking paxil
** '''A:''' Consider yourself fortunate that you're having ''any'' sex while taking Paxil.
** '''Q:''' kangaroo tumour up anus
** '''A:''' It's not what we usually cover, even if Crazy Meds does show up at number 4 on the Google search for that one.  I suggest the handle of a ball peen hammer and a copious amount of 10W40 motor oil.

With nearly 90% of the traffic to this site arriving via search engines, what are people searching for?  Here's Analytics' take on it:[[<<]]

Google's Webmaster's Tools has a lot of...approximations.  They're useful, they just aren't real statistics.  This screen confirms that many of people who reach Crazy Meds via search engines do so by entering nothing more than the name of a drug

This screen might need a little explanation for those not familiar with it.  The Query column is what someone typed into a search engine
.  Impressions is how many times a result came back with a link to Crazy Meds ''on that person's screen''.  Clicks is how many times that link was clicked, and CTR (click through rate) is how often the link was clicked as a percentage of the impressions.  100,000 impressions, 5,000 clicks = 5% CTR.  Average Position is the where the link shows up, on average, in search results.  This is highly variable and depends on stuff I do (the dark art of search engine optimization) as well as how someone has their browser set up, what their Internet options are, where they live, which browser they are using (I've tried it, it can make a difference) and a shitload of things I haven't figured out yet.  Then there's all the usual stuff like links to a site and how often it is clicked on via search engines. 

So what changed that caused all of the drug pages to fall out of the top ten, or even the top five results?  Google finally bought into the pervasive paradigm of teh Internets: life will always be like high school.  I.e. personal popularity is everything.  Suddenly it mattered that I had 'friends' on Google+ and Facebook and all the other social networking sites.  No matter what else I tried in the way of SEO nothing changed until I added the buttons to follow the site on Google+, add me to your Google circles, and like the site itself on Facebook in mid-June.  Since then the drug pages have been climbing back up the search results, traffic has been slowly climbing to where it was in late 2011.

You might be thinking, does it really matter ''that'' much?  As long as you're in the top ten, right?  Most people get ten results and all the sites on that page should get pretty much the same amount of traffic.

Wrong.

Look at the above screenshot.  Notice how the highest CTRs always correspond to the best positions?  The title of this article says it all: [[http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2049695/Top-Google-Result-Gets-36.4-of-Clicks-Study|Top Google Result Gets 36.4% of Clicks]].  What I get are really close to the averages from that study.  Being in positions 4 and 5 is vastly different than 9 and 10.  If Wellbutrin were in position 9 instead of 4 it would mean 2,000 clicks (if that) a month instead of 15,000.  If I can get Seroquel bumped up from 8 to 6 it would mean 5,000 to 8,000 clicks a month, and not 2,500.

And while it is only an approximation, there is something else about the CTR that is really cool: it's pretty close to the percentage of search engine traffic for the search term used that you're getting.  So that 9% for Wellbutrin means in August we got 9% of all traffic generated by search engines for the term "Wellbutrin."

I always like to see what sort of wacky search terms lead people to Crazy Meds, answer the questions I think were behind those searches, and see where the hell they show up when I type them into Google, but the site is too popular for that now!  There are so many search terms used that AWStats can't display them all, and even Analytics pukes on a month's worth of data.  But a few pulled from random days in September:

I Included the landing page for direct traffic for the hell of it.  It's interesting to see where people who have the site bookmarked, or who copy an URL into a browser window land.  The two different URLs used for the main forum page artificially lower where it should show up, which would be between Neurontin and Lexapro.

Those severe troughs are from days when we had technical difficulties and were off the air.  I'll cover the steep decline in January 2012 in the next section.

I have AWStats data going back only to mid-April.  Here's what the total traffic looks like for then up through August 2012:[[<<]]

The sine wave pattern in the Analytics chart reflects weekday vs. weekend traffic, which means a lot of
the mentally interesting have jobs.  Looking at the AWStats data for August we can see much more detail about daily visits:[[<<]]

The hourly traffic shows the mentally interesting aren't as uniformly nocturnal as most people may think.  With 85
% of the site's readers in North America (81% in the US), and the hours set to Mountain Time (GMT -6, -7 during winter) "we" (although rarely I) stay up late, but not that much later than most Americans these days.[[<<]]

Those severe troughs are from days when we had technical difficulties and were off the air.  The Dow Jones-like plummet from 16,000 Java-enabled visitors a day in December 2011 to barely over 9,000 on weekdays in January reflects when Google changed its search algorithm and Crazy Meds pages suddenly weren't showing up in the top ten results of most people's searches.  When 80% of your traffic comes from search engines, your site lives or dies at the fickle whims of search algorithms.

the total traffic for September 2012.  First the high-level summary of traffic for mid-April (when LunarPages tech support fixed what I broke) through when I took these snapshots in October:[[<<]]

Google's Webmaster's Tools has a lot of...approximations.  They're useful, they just aren't real statistics.  This screen confirms that many of people who reach Crazy Meds via search engines do so by entering nothing more than the name of a drug.[[<<]]
%width=1000%[[https://crazymeds.net/WebToolsKeywords August2012.png | https://crazymeds.net/WebToolsKeywords August2012.png"Webmaster's Tools Keywords Aug 2012"]] | [-Click to enlarge-]%%
This screen might need a little explanation for those not familiar with it.  The Query column is what someone typed into a search engine.  Impressions is how many times a result came back with a link to Crazy Meds ''on that person's screen''.  Clicks is how many times that link was clicked, and CTR (click through rate) is how often the link was clicked as a percentage of the impressions.  100,000 impressions, 5,000 clicks = 5% CTR.  Average Position is the where the link shows up, on average, in search results.  This is highly variable and depends on stuff I do (the dark art of search engine optimization) as well as how someone has their browser set up, what their Internet options are, where they live, which browser they are using (I've tried it, it can make a difference) and a shitload of things I haven't figured out yet.  Then there's all the usual stuff like links to a site and how often it is clicked on via search engines. 

So what changed that caused all of the drug pages to fall out of the top ten, or even the top five results?  Google finally bought into the pervasive paradigm of teh Internets: life will always be like high school.  I.e. personal popularity is everything.  Suddenly it mattered that I had 'friends' on Google+ and Facebook and all the other social networking sites.  No matter what else I tried in the way of SEO nothing changed until I added the buttons to follow the site on Google+, add me to your Google circles, and like the site itself on Facebook in mid-June.  Since then the drug pages have been climbing back up the search results, traffic has been slowly climbing to where it was in late 2011.

You might be thinking, does it really matter ''that'' much?  As long as you're in the top ten, right?  Most people get ten results and all the sites on that page should get pretty much the same amount of traffic.

Wrong.

Look at the above screenshot.  Notice how the highest CTRs always correspond to the best positions?  The title of this article says it all: [[http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2049695/Top-Google-Result-Gets-36.4-of-Clicks-Study|Top Google Result Gets 36.4% of Clicks]].  What I get are really close to the averages from that study.  Being in positions 4 and 5 is vastly different than 9 and 10.  If Wellbutrin were in position 9 instead of 4 it would mean 2,000 clicks (if that) a month instead of 15,000.  If I can get Seroquel bumped up from 8 to 6 it would mean 5,000 to 8,000 clicks a month, and not 2,500.

And while it is only an approximation, there is something else about the CTR that is really cool: it's pretty close to the percentage of search engine traffic for the search term used that you're getting.  So that 9% for Wellbutrin means in August we got 9% of all traffic generated by search engines for the term "Wellbutrin."

A few things to explain:
* /CrazyTalk/F6547FF8-D38D-428C-B6BA-8B0567091F92.html and /CrazyTalk/ are both valid URLs for the forum's home page, and you can land on both of them as you navigate throughout the site.  So if you add the two of them together you'll find it's the second-most popular page here.
* That long URL in 12th (or 11th) place is the link for new content since your last visit to the forum.
* Calling the first page in the multipaged articles[^##first^] DrugnameBasicOverview instead of just the drug name seemed like a good idea at the time.  So a little math is needed to determine who is really the most popular.
* There is no Zyban page.  For some reason Google kept sending people to a redirect page I've had for Zyban[^##seo^] when they searched on Wellbutrin.  They've been doing that since 2006.  It wasn't until the last two weeks that they finally got the clue when someone searches on Wellbutrin they should be sent directly to the page called Wellbutrin that the redirect page is pointing to[^##keppra^].
[^##first How many people read subsequent pages?  5%.^]

* The blacked-out URL is used for [[http://www.projecthoneypot.org/|Project Honeypot]], a spam tracking and prevention organization.
* CrazyTalk/mobiquo/mobiquo is the Tapatalk application
* BackupAd728x90.html is the ad for Straitjacket t-shirts I mentioned above

I prefer the metric of unique visitors over hits.  Hits are easily inflated by having lots and lots of little graphics all over the place.  Like all of our avatars on Crazy Meds Talk.  I see crap all over the place where people are putting up multiple meaningless graphics and using cascading style sheets
and badly designed .shtml in an effort to inflate hit counts to make their sites seem more important than said sites really areDuring the same period the average hits per day is 95,423.  Wow!   That's way more impressive than 6,856 visitors, because it's a bigger number!
Along similar lines bandwidth usage is equally irrelevant as a way to measure traffic
.  It's important to me, but it's not too useful to any third parties.  Again, how useful is an average daily bandwidth of 1.4 GB?  Plenty of people out there will link directly to the US versions of the PI sheets I have stored here, which are big-ass .pdf files.  Those suck up a lot of bandwidth, for one visitor looking at what is technically one page.  And why to people link to my PI sheets?  Either they think I'm more reputable than the drug companies themselves, or they just like that I keep the PI sheets in a static location.  Who cares if I let them get up to a year or so out of date sometimes?

The hourly traffic shows the mentally interesting aren't as uniformly nocturnal as most people may think.  With 85% of the site's readers in North America (81% in the US)
, and the hours set to Mountain Time (GMT -6, -7 during winter) "we" (although rarely I) stay up late, but not that much later than most Americans these days.

The Dow Jones-like plummet from a peak of 16,000 visitors a day in December 2011 to barely over 9,000 on weekdays in January reflects when Google changed its search algorithm
and suddenly almost all of the drug pages fell out of the top ten.  Many were in the top five resultsIt's taken until July 2012 to get close to where they used to be.  Why is that important?  Take a look at how people got here over the same time period:[[<<]]

Over the past 12 months search engines were responsible for 81% of traffic to Crazy Meds.  In August 2012 89%
of traffic came from search engines, 95% of which came from Google.  Again, that's from Google Analytics, which means 80% of everybody who read at least one page on either the wiki or the forum (i.e. they didn't just grab a .pdf file) and had Java turned on arrived at Crazy Meds via a Google search.  Anyone who arrived via a Google search and had Java turned but landed on, say, [[http://crazymeds.us/CymbaltaKoreanSPC.pdf|the Korean language Cymbalta Summary of Product Characteristics]] and didn't go anywhere else would not be included in that stat.

A few of those all-important keywords used to find us appear on the above screenshot, with (not provided) being the most popular.  Using the page where someone winds up from the result of their search it's pretty easy to extrapolate what their search term was.  While it could have been an entire sentence, it probably was a single word and, with a couple of exceptions, was more likely the brand name than generic name of the drug.

the mentally interesting have lives.

The sine wave reflects weekday vs. weekend traffic, which means a lot of the mentally interesting have jobs.  Those severe troughs are from days when we had technical difficulties and were off
the air.  The Dow Jones-like plummet from a peak of 16,000 visitors a day in December 2011 to barely over 9,000 on weekdays in January reflects when Google changed its search algorithm and suddenly almost all of the drug pages fell out of the top ten.  Many were in the top five results.  It's taken until July 2012 to get close to where they used to be.  Why is that important?

It's about time I brought back the stats page.

!!!Traffic Congestion
I don't know where the hell sites like Quantcast and Compete come up with their numbers.  Even when I had their code included their stats were way off.  When the domain changed from .org to .us Quantcast hard a difficult time dealing with it, and was completely unable to handle the wiki software.  Compete was bad enough when I had their code in the .org days, so I didn't even bother including it in the wiki and new forum software.  So I present screen shots of Google Analytics and AWStats.  There are discrepancies between the two, but that is because Analytics counts only visitors with Java enabled who visit the wiki or forum, while AWStats counts ''everybody,'' including people who do nothing more than grab a .pdf file.

First let's look at the traffic for the most recent 12 months:

The usual pattern of spikes of over 10,000 visitors on weekdays and barely over 5,000 on weekends and around holidays still holds true.  The good news being that even a goodly portion of the mentally interesting have lives. 
I prefer the metric of unique visitors over hits.  Hits are easily inflated by having lots and lots of little graphics all over the place.  Like all of our avatars on Crazy Meds Talk.  I see crap all over the place where people are putting up multiple meaningless graphics and using cascading style sheets and badly designed .shtml in an effort to inflate hit counts to make their sites seem more important than said sites really are.  During the same period the average hits per day is 95,423.  Wow!  That's way more impressive than 6,856 visitors, because it's a bigger number!
Along similar lines bandwidth usage is equally irrelevant as a way to measure traffic.  It's important to me, but it's not too useful to any third parties.  Again, how useful is an average daily bandwidth of 1.4 GB?  Plenty of people out there will link directly to the US versions of the PI sheets I have stored here, which are big-ass .pdf files.  Those suck up a lot of bandwidth, for one visitor looking at what is technically one page.  And why to people link to my PI sheets?  Either they think I'm more reputable than the drug companies themselves, or they just like that I keep the PI sheets in a static location.  Who cares if I let them get up to a year or so out of date sometimes?
