Someone named Elen did something quite useful and got AllKPop to write about “My Zone”. (So, yeah, if all you do is sit back and bitch about a lack of coverage like I did, it’s not actually all that helpful. Thank you, Elen, for being the better person!)
How useful was it?
The first peak in hourly traffic today over at BlockB.com come after 11 am (in whatever time zone that is–it’s not mine), which was when the video was released. Then it levels off at 1 pm. That’s when the AllKPop story came out, and you see a second bump after that. (The sudden up-and-down at 7 pm is actually more normal for hourly traffic–you see that throughout the day as people in different time zones all, you know, come home from school and go on-line or whatever.)
I’ll throw in some daily traffic for context–218 unique visitors so far today, which is good (it ended up at 258):
No big surprise where the traffic is going: The Albums & Singles page. As for that–I don’t see the song “My Zone” on iTunes Japan or Recochoku, so I’m guessing it’s just the video at this point.
At least, I assume there’s a death glare going on there, but I understand that they had to hide it behind special bicolor sunglasses in order to protect the general public. Really, it was the only decent thing to do.
P.S. I’m also going to put this here out of solidarity with fellow old person Happy Mandoo. Keep rockin’ those old bones, Mandoo!
