TRAFFIC GROWTH

fav-icon-512-leftHere at Hardcore Games we have expanded the site substantially over time. we have still not finished importing all of the articles from the old site as these have to be manually posted one by one.

We have considered buying some defunct gaming content but what we have found is hard to import into WordPress.

We have noticed that the traffic load has become heavily enough that the site sometimes is stopped with a HTTP 403 when the server chokes on the load. Income has not been adequate to justify a more expensive service level as adblocking has been so pervasive.

At this time we are experiencing 5,000-10,000 page views in a rolling 30 day average. This is more than double what it was 12 months ago.

The new ads are outperforming the Amazon ads which does earn a few pesos. Eventually once we have finished with the upgrades to the site we may consider some CPM ads.

We have found Google to be sending a growing amount of users to the site. We have also noticed more are now either white listing the site or they are disabling their adblocking plugins. Now the content is more what it was like back in the late 1990s.
