|I ran this report an hour ago on Wed Sep 28 at 8:38am CST. Looking at the plant database's activity for the past week (Sep 21 at 8:38am to present) we have had:|
2,996 images added and approved. These were added by 102 different people.
177 comments posted.
323 new plants added.
1,015 databox proposals approved.
In all, we have 20,507 images in the database.
495 comments in total.
76,585 out of 180,977 plants have at least one databox field filled out.
We now have a member who this morning passed the 2,000 acorns mark.
The system has awarded a total of 16,949.76 acorns (this includes everything on the site, not just the database).
1 member has more than 2,000 acorns.
5 members have more than 1,000 acorns.
34 members have more than 100 acorns.
Visitors to the database
Even though the database was launched less than 2 weeks ago, we are already showing up in Google search results, and are enjoying a lot of visitors from searches.
In the past week, we had 1,404 visitors come into the database through a Google search.
Many of the plants in the database appear in the first page of results when you Google for it. Many others even come up as the very first result. For example, here is a Google search for a specific cultivar of Sempervivum and we are the first result.
So, I'm thrilled with how things are going.
It is my experience that a gardening site will enjoy increased traffic week over week from January until early June, and then it generally tapers off, each week getting less traffic than the week before it, all the way until the end of December.
But for us, we are getting more traffic each day and each week is better than the previous one. Starting this January, I expect our membership to explode when all the gardeners around the world wake up from their winter slumber and start looking for information about plants. We will be ready to give them the information they want and welcome them into our friendly community.

|Amazing numbers and results.|
I'm not a great sports fan but this makes me want to yell 'Score'!!! or maybe 'Touchdown'!

|I was searching for a specific plant the other day, and ATP came up on Google! I think I actually said out loud "All Right!"|
Great job Dave! Hats off to you and Trish!
I am getting the word out about ATP to everyone I know !

|I noticed too that Google searches are showing ATP right up there among the rest of them, often ahead of them!|
Sep 28, 2011 12:18 PM CST
|I have a number of times found ATP listed first or second on other types of plants other than sempervivum. |
It was so exciting to me.
Now on to my computer files to start posting all the other types of plants I have photos of. We want to be sure if some one is looking for a specific plant ATP pops up.

|Impressive results |
I, too, googled a plant a few days ago and the first hit was ATP database. I was sort of shocked!

|Aw, now I'm feeling guilty for slacking off! Gotta get back to digging through those photo files and my own collection of plant data. |
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

|Ditto each & every comment!|
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
