FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE SWINDON, UK - June 1, 2004 - Another record-breaking month has been experienced by the Internet's largest and most popular conspiracy-theory community, AboveTopSecret.com. Just one month ago, the members and operators of ATS (what they call the "AboveTopSecret.com community") were celebrating an extraordinary month of April, with traffic numbers in excess of 450,000 unique users. The month of May has shattered the April record, and more.
 
Thanks to excellent and timely reporting on ATSNN (the Above Top Secret News Network), and diverse discussion, the combined news and community domains have received 909,456 unique users in the month of May, and 10.7 million page views. The resulting bandwidth for the month is slightly over 300 gigabytes, 26% higher than the previous record breaking bandwidth amount just one month before. The interesting combination of news reports, combined with member comments and follow-ups appears to strike a chord with ATS's core audience of politically aware and socially concerned members. People came to droves to AboveTopSecret.com thanks to excellent analysis and coverage of several key events that took place during the month of May, 2004. First and foremost, there were two important threads covering the horrific beheading of Nick Berg that were both seen in the top-ten search returns on Google and other major search engines, when search on the topic. Achieving a high top-ten return on a critical current event is no easy task, and is directly related to the quality and relevance of the contributions of the community members of AboveTopSecret.com. However, basic traffic and user sessions only tells part of the story. More new members joined the AboveTopSecret.com discussion board in the month of May 2004, than in all of the first three years of its operation. This infusion of 3,101 new members is sure to provide new opinions, thoughts, and topics for discussion to continue the amazing growth of an increasingly important source of news and information. AboveTopSecret.com and the associated universe of domains are owned by Simon Gray and hosted out of Texas, USA.

I usually hate the whole 'numerology' kind of thing, mainly writing it off and coincidence or plain stupidity. However (!), the 300,000th post was on or around Dec 23rd 2003, some 161 days ago. We're now on around 567618 which is averaging about 1662 per day.

If we carry on at this level, the 1,000,000th ATS post will be on or around Feb 14th 2005, earily enough my birthday!

Could I be the chosen one? You decide numerology weirdo's!!

Hey Skeptic Overlord.....What is your current status with the banners, Bandwidth limit, income to pay for the server etc?

Everything ok?

I'd like to know everything of what's happening in that department.

Could the massive amount of pageviews have anything to do with the ring hunters reading almost every post on the entire forum?

Originally posted by DaRAGE Hey Skeptic Overlord.....What is your current status with the banners, Bandwidth limit,
Our bandwidth limit on our current set-up is 1,000 gigabytes per month. So we're in good shape there. The banners are getting close to getting operations out of the red, and have helped with some upgrades (more RAM), new services (WebMail), and fun stuff (Rings). It doesn't make much sense to compare with our old graphs, as we weren't keeping the most accurate possible traffic records until February of this year when we started using Urchin. Some of our old numbers were a bit off (especially in the unique users categories). Also, as you may notice, the ATS board is light on graphics, so if we had a more graphic design, our bandwidth would be over 500 gigabytes.

Low graphics is good. ATS loads just about as fast as google on my dial-up which is pretty amazing considering the numberous little pics for points and whatnot.
