after over ten thousand views of our M12 Spoiler thread, our Innistrad thread is seeing almost 4000! this early!

so i guess it would be prudent to keep the spoiler page updated as soon as the rumors come in. i can take this mantle, and you guys can pick up the slack if i suck!

Insanely, on google, we're the second site that comes up when Innistrad is googled. Right underneath Wizards...

That's just not right. That might be related to something I've heard Google does. It's supposed to take your history (maybe just search history, but it could be browsing history in general) and tailor your results to that history. Like if you read a lot of liberal sites and search up Obama, you'll end up getting results that are also on liberal sites.
That effect could be what's going on here.

I thought the same thing, Brandon. I asked my completely non-Magic friend to google it for me, and the same thing came up.

Hmmm... that's definitely odd then. I wonder if it might be using the IP address to figure out location and taking that into account.
I've got no ideas beyond that. It's that or the forum here is much more awesome than I would have thought.

EDIT: I just had a friend of mine up in New York state do a search. We were the number 2 result. I guess we are that awesome then.

you might be right, however, i tried it on a different computer here, as well as changing the Google home location to "90210" and got the same results. we are NOT on the first page of Bing or Yahoo.

i think Google is working off our respective IP addresses. someone try this at Starbucks!

it's enough to take my braggy post off of Facebook. EDIT: NEVER!

Philadelphia is actually just a small portion of the site traffic here. Trust me, Brandon, I am the first to be skeptical that this is anything bigger than it is.

I also went in through a web proxy, and it's still #2.

I just logged onto the google analytics for the site. Check out the traffic spike yesterday:

Interesting. I'm curious to see what happens once Salvation get's their rumor/spoiler stuff up and rolling closer to the set release.

I updated the spoiler page so that the complete spoiler appears at the top of the page. Steve, this may be a pain to update, so if it gets to be too much, just stop doing it. We haven't had to cater to the masses in the past, and look at where it's taken us.

Also, I just saw there is the capability of adding Facebook connect to the site, making it easier to create accounts. Is that something we want to bother with?

answer one: i can try to keep it updated. i got time to kill at work.

answer two: do the Facebook... i just want to see what happens!

I saw that this morning.

I had trouble setting up facebook connect this morning. Steve, it's in the admin panel if you want to take a stab at it. They ask you for either your mobile phone or credit card (pick your poison). I don't quite understand why they need those things.

Otherwise I'll try again when I'm done teaching my morning class.

working on it now. NOT inputting any credit card info...

also, could you install Google Analytics for me too? here's my code. (i have no clue how to do it)

EDIT: scratch that. use this:

very, but i'm still trying to figure out the root cause! is no other forum talking about Magic other than Salvation? are we unique in having our own forum for a playgroup? these all seem insane to me, given the size of the goddamn internet.
