    Sorry for that messy chart I couldn't get it to paste right... ONE MILLION visitors in September created 41 million page views. Amazing... the Chart below shows traffic counts by hour on one day in September. You can see how the traffic rises by hour. You can see we hit 100,000 plus in one day... update your profiles now!

    We just moved up to 33,000 most popular. I think the highest Hauntworld has ever got was top 15,000 I'd love to make top 10,000 sites in America. That will show that not Hauntworld.com but the industry is really that big.

    The top 10k is that hard to crack, huh?

    Hmmm must be porn and cat picture sites.

    Good luck beating that!

    Now according to Alexa.com Hauntworld is up to 31,000 most popular on the rise and on the move. After this weekend I would guess it will jump up into the mid-twenties. 82,000 people visited the website yesterday... every day its getting 80,000 plus but I'm betting this Friday Saturday it will jump up inot the mid 150's

    We'll see... we are breaking records right now!

    I hope Hauntworld helps your business this season... that is what we are here for!

    As they say proof is always in the pudding... I wonder if any other haunt directory would do the same namely one that use to publish ads showing a house squashing a pumpkin. Where are you ... inside this cave the echos are everywhere. LOL Maybe they should consider buying some google ads or something. FYI... this graph drops off like a rock for today because those totals are not there yet. Bottom line is Hauntworld is the undisputed king of haunt directories... if you haven't updated your profile you should do so NOW!

    We just broke a record we did 120,000 visits in one day... I keep wondering and worrying about the big haunted house that will fall on our pumpkin and smash it... but we are still chugging along breaking records Larry

    Hauntworld tried to process an all time RECORD traffic... it couldn't handle it. The site was affected for a couple hours we got it fixed... we never expected the site to get as big as its getting right now. Today the site tried to process 250,000 visitors... I'm now thinking the site might get 500,000 in ONE DAY later this month.

    We are finding solutions... we have one giant server we are moving all sites off that server including scarefest.com so Hauntworld has a chance to process as many as a half million visits in one day. We are also moving a ton of images, and videos to the cloud which could help but on the busiest days we might have to shut down this forum.

    This forum hurts the site... our main goal is to help people find haunted houses especially for our customers. We can't do that if the site won't operate quickly. So if you see the site running perfectly and this forum goes off during friday/saturday time frames you'll know why.

    Hauntworld.com might do 5 million visitors this month alone... for those who bought banners smart move, to those who didn't you can still contact Patti. We'll give you a massive discount.

    I never expected this... Hauntworld is taking just going WILD right now.

    We moved up to 30,000 most popular site by next week I expect to be at or around 20 thousand and by the end of October I'm thinking we'll be close to or around top 10,000.

    Larry

    PS: For those who think even for a second I don't care about my customers or this indsutry think again... its 9:30pm and I'm still at home didn't go to my own haunted house. I'm making sure this site functions correctly for the industry and my customers. I will always put the customers first.

    Last night Hauntworld did 160,000 visits and over 800,000 in the last 7 days.

    Hauntworld will go up and over 200,000 in one day coming up soon like maybe today!

    Hauntworld popularity rank in NA is 28,000

    I'm expecting that to reach 20,000 before next Friday. It has been dropping by about 2000, websites every day.

    At this point I'm expecting Hauntworld.com to go up and over 5 million visits in the month of October. This would set and shatter any record that ever existed for a haunted house portal. When you add in September and August we are looking at 6.5 million, and then if you add in my other sites we are talking about 8 million range for three months, or Hauntworld by itself for the year around 8 million visits. Now that we've established this... we will real seek out more support from the haunt industry so we can advance some other new concepts we have brewing.
