Saturday night, can’t go out cos I gotta wake up at 6:00 AM tomorrow. So just writing a post about this blog for all other bloggers. Today we’re revealing all stats about this blog, just to provide some nice benchmarking for other bloggers. At the same time we’re shattering the dream that one can get rich of monetizing your blog.

Indonesia, which is #16 in the world based on the number of Internet users is on the 48th place in this top 50. So to all Internet startup entrepreneurs and developers in Indonesia we say make sure your application is lean and mean enough to still provide a pleasant user experience, it might just be the edge you need to beat your (foreign) competitors!

Website KPI's KSI'sTime for some serious blogging. Mind you, we’ve got to keep working on our credibility because we don’t want people to think this blog is only a sarcastic parody on what goes on in the digital market. So let’s talk serious, let’s talk KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators), specifically website KPI’s. Cool stuff? I mean KPI’s are AWESOME. Nothing better to impress your colleague entrepreneurs with a comment like “yeah we just hit 450.000 visits per day”, look at those faces, admiration combined with jealousy all around. Of course quickly responded by an alpha-male saying that on his the average pageviews per visits had gone up with a staggering 30% to 23 pv/visit. Wow! that’s great, super duper good for you!
