November 2012 End Of The Month Report

| | |
It has been another good month of growth here at W.L. Swarts Reviews The Universe! While there was no movement in the Top Ten Of All Time, November eked its way into the second most trafficked month! While this month's blockbusters did not perform as well as during Summer Blockbuster Season, our readership was pretty wonderful! This month, we put special emphasis on graphic novel reviews and readers continue to enjoy those! Thanks for all the "likes" for those posts!

We are always trying to get people to become regular readers and subscribe, so if you enjoy what you're reading, please subscribe by clicking on the right side of the blog to get updates with each posting. As well, if you read a review that really affects you, be sure to "share" it! PLEASE share a link to the blog, not the content of the article; this keeps people coming to the site and, hopefully, liking what they find once they are here! We're really looking to grow our readership, so sharing and subscribing to the blog is an important way you can help! If you’re subscribing, please tell your friends about the blog!

In November, we were able to keep the Index Pages up and updated the entire month, including on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, making for a very dynamic website. The primary Index Page, which is now updated daily, lets you know what the featured review is and has an up-to-the-day tally of how many reviews have been reviewed in each category! Check it out!

If you enjoy the reviews, please consider clicking on the links in the reviews and purchasing items. We really appreciate all the purchases made through the blog on Cyber Monday! Please consider purchasing items through the blog as you do your holiday shopping. By purchasing items through the links on the blog, you sponsor my ability to continue reviewing. Thank you so much for that support! BIG “Thank you!” to all of the people who continue to support the blog and my writing in that fashion! We really appreciate all the support.

The Featured Review Of The Month for November is: Invader Zim! Check it out!

The month of November saw the resurgence of some popular reviews (including decent traffic for what I thought was one of my worst reviews ever!). I am so thrilled that the documentary on Prometheus managed to place and it is hard to complain about the endurance of that Cadbury Screme Egg review! For November, the Top Ten Reviews of the month were:
10. Cadbury Screme Eggs
9. 2012 Merida From Brave Hallmark Ornament
8. The Furious Gods: Making "Prometheus"
7. Why The Trailer To Rise Of The Guardians Is Objectionable
6. Prometheus Engineer (Pressure Suit) Action Figure
5. "Bride Of Chaotica!" - Star Trek: Voyager
4. Rise Of The Guardians
3. Brita Water Filter 42629 Slim Pitcher
2. Red Dawn
1. Breaking Dawn, Part 2

I pride myself on being an exceptionally fair reviewer, but one who is very discriminating. I believe that most reviewers are far too biased toward both what is current and toward unduly praising things. I tend to believe most things actually are average and they ought to follows something around a Bell Curve. Mine is a little lopsided, but not as lopsided as most reviewers I know (who would probably have peak numbers between ten and seven!

For my reviews, the current count is:
10s - 262 reviews
9s - 367 reviews
8s - 639 reviews
7s - 708 reviews
6s - 637 reviews
5s - 850 reviews
4s - 585 reviews
3s - 488 reviews
2s - 208 reviews
1s - 137 reviews
0s - 74 reviews
No rating - 28 articles/postings

And, if you haven't checked out the top reviews of all time, at the end of November, the most popular reviews/articles I have written are:
10. Total Recall (2012)
9. Breaking Dawn, Part 1
8. Snow White And The Huntsman
7. The Amazing Spider-Man!
6. Cadbury Screme Eggs
5. The Avengers
4. The Hunger Games
3. Star Trek: Machinations Of Doomsday
2. Won't Back Down
1. Prometheus
