I was wondering (generally speaking) How long does it take before my post drops off of the 1st page in a forum or How long does it take for them to drop off the "NEW POSTS" section? ------------- I've noticed I get a lot of hits to my sites when I post in forums... usually for a few hours then it dies off.. and if I post a comment on that post.. I generally get traffic again for the same periods.. I guess because the post goes to the top of the list or people are clicking on NEW POSTS to see the latest..... any how I thought it would be interesting to track how long the pages stay on either page 1 of that forum section or in the what's new section.. I'm using WEBMON" ( pretty old web site monitor tool to let me know when my post falls off the forum.. .. I have it set to run a macro that will text my cell phone when it drops off.. What do you think? What are your experiences?
