Robo-Geisha is one crazy movie +

Bit NSFW. Well, I’ve never been one to shy away from crazy Japanese cult movies. As a matter of fact, I didn’t think I would find one that topped Tokyo Gore Police. Silly me. Leave it to the minds that created Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police to team up and create this over the […]

A 3 foot horror story +

The bathroom in many homes is a very lonely room. You only visit it when you need something, and not for the pleasant atmosphere the room provides. So is it really hard to believe that the lonely bathrooms around the world holds a deep seated grudge for the humans that use it? I think not. […]

A real Hello Kitty +

If you are reading this website right now, I would find it very hard for you to not know what Hello Kitty is. One could argue that it is one of the most well known Japanese brands right up there with Honda and Sony. This video has nothing to do with Hello Kitty other than […]

Kids vs Zombies +

So, Andrea subliminally tricked me into purchasing Left 4 Dead on Steam, and I have been enjoying playing it for the past few days now. Funnily enough, I have to play Louis everytime I play online because well… my real name is Louis and I’m African-American. You may be wondering what zombies have to do […]

Ichi the Killer Bento +

Gore movies are one of my many favorites from Japan. The last one I watched was Tokyo Gore Police a few months ago. What can I say about that besides it was unbelievably gory… As for the actual story, I think I could of written something better as weekend homework in the 4th grade. But […]

Naoto Fukasawa’s Fruit Juice +

They say that the way food or drinks look plays a major influence on how well we like it. I would have to agree. These are some awesome fruit juice packaging from Industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa. Looking at the strawberry box, it looks as if the packaging may even feel like the specific fruit it […]

Mini Nikon SLR in Japanese candy +

Gilco is one of Japan’s oldest candy companies, and is home to the popular Glico caramel candy as well as the legendary Pocky. For about 80 years now, inside the Glico caramel candy boxes there is a small toy called “Omake of Glico” (Small gift of Glico). It started off as little toys kids would […]

Space Invaders Bank +

Tomy has done it again. If you are old enough to remember space invaders, this functioning bank will trigger your nostalgia reflex. Personally I remember the game, but I’m too young to remember the actual table. We did have a functioning Atari when I was a child though. Ah. Memories.

March 2008 stats for xorsyst.com +

April Stats for xorsyst.com: OverviewWell I can’t believe it’s already April. I spent much of my morning looking at all the April Fools jokes going around like Google’s Virgil Pioneer, John Chow’s UberAffiliate Review (which I fell for), and Darren’s PayPerTweet service. Great stuff this year.

If you are a regular reader of xorsyst.com, you may have noticed I have a new layout thats completely different from the graphics heavy layouts I usually have. I got away from my usual heavy layouts for something minimal and focuses more on content. I have already seen an improvement in pageviews, comments, and average time on the site. It feels a little weird to be writing this post because I am usually really secretive with stats, and behind the scenes stuff for this site. But I feel as though being open is the better approach, and it may help you with your own site.

My goal with xorsyst.com is to become a fairly large site for Otaku and pop culture stuff. To my friends who I describe my site to, I compare my content to stuff that can be found on a typical day watching G4TV. Some of you that speak to me on Twitter and IM may already know of my secret plans to be featured on Attack of the Show. But that’s for another post. Thanks to all of the new people I have met over the past few months, and all of my new RSS subscribers. You are the reason xorsyst has grown so rapidly! Now for all the juicy stats…

March Stats for xorsyst.com: Traffic Sources I do a lot of research about things I post here on the site. I seriously could write my own ebook by the amount of time and resources I use for finding content and analyzing stats. I really do have a stats addiction problem. Everything from placement of content and pictures to post titles has a reason. The content I post I believe my readers would find interesting. My passion is Otaku related news, and American pop culture. So that’s my first and foremost goal. However, to become big in this crowded blog scene, one needs to blog for traffic as well. What I mean by blog for traffic is some of my posts, while may not seem very content heavy, have been chosen to cater to what people are searching for in Google, MSN, and Yahoo search engines. I have seen a lot of potential and results in doing this already.

Amung.us StatsYou may have noticed that button on my left side bar. Thats a really cool and useful free service offered by Amung.us. It lists the amount of people that are on this site in real time. I also use their Firefox plugin that tells the user count on my Firefox status as well. Yesterday, that counter spiked to over 215 users because my Transformers 2 post got stumbled.

April Stats for xorsyst.com: Unique VisitorsMy traffic has been scaling up very nicely over the past 3 months. In January I had 2,286 unique visitors, February had 16,499 unique visitors. and in March I peaked at 30,191 unique visitors. That’s almost doubling visits each month. One may realize that is a very fast traffic increase, and I am starting to hit my first traffic plateau. I am happy with this level of traffic, however I have much more in store to continue this trend. My RSS feed broke 100 on the very last day of March (how fitting). As I write this, I currently have 101 feed subscribers.

I am debating keeping Entrecard going on this blog. While the service is very good for networking, I don’t feel as though many blogs in this niche utilize the service enough for it to warrant a prime position on my sidebar. I see much more traffic from other sources. This next week or so, I may play around with moving my Entrecard widget. My recommendation for building traffic is to definitely utilize Stumbleupon. I am amazed with how much traffic that site can send. I am an active stumbler, and submit / stumble more than just my own site. I believe that is key to having your stumble votes really count. Another suggestion if you do decide to start using Stumbleupon for your site. If you use wordpress, you may want to install the WordPress Super-cache plugin. Before I started using it, if I had more than 50 people on my site at one time, things slowed to a crawl. However even with over 200 visitors at one time that I received yesterday, xorsyst.com was fast and responsive! Definitely worth checking out. Their claim to making your server Digg proof seems to be a true one.

Add me as a friend on Stumbleupon, and catch me on Twitter! Good luck with your blog!
