Write a Review of GEI - for Alexa

Highlight the sections you would like to grow

================================

 

THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT !

 

Traffic at GEI has been growing nicely, and we appreciate your support.

 

We hope that people like the make-over and the new sections, like the easy-to-find Investment Blogs, and some greater focus here on investment opportunities.

 

They seem to be attracting new people and more traffic. Out popularity Rank has been falling steadily, and as of the week, GEI was:

 

Global Rank--- : #233,377 (down from almost 999,999 about 18 months ago!)

Rank in the UK : # 9,285

Rank in the US : #366,606

 

But if you compare with other sites: (as of last week)

Latest Rankings:

=====

GEI : #241,563 / GB#9,947 (54%) : 1 month 0.00069 +110% : 1 review, 53 links

SP - : #105,390 / GB#6,135 (XX%) : 1 month 0.00115 - 25% : 9 reviews, 71 links

PT - : # 91,185 / GB#3,214 (XX%) : 1 month 0.00171 + 24% : 0 review, 39 links

HPC : # 23,835 / GB#0,794 (XX%) : 1 month 0.00069 +110% : 138 reviews, 318 links

TFNN: #433,258 / US88,449 (XX%) : 1 month 0.00034 - 06% : 1 review, 55 links

CC - : #410,386 / AU15,043 (XX%) : 1 month 0.00021 -40% : 0 review, 22 links

One thing we have is fewer reviews on Alexa. In fact, there is only one so far:

 

A fascinating and friendly investors chatboard - Helps make profits!

Aug 21, 2010

The best use of this site is Research.

 

Comments: GEI is DrBubb's website. He founded it and provides a diary of his trades. As a former hedge fund manager, he has some interesting commentary almost every day, explaining the rationale behind his trades. He's not always right (but who is?) / / The website is much more than DrBubb. There's a very active Gold oriented thread, which is dominated by a a group of gold bulls (such as Goldfinger and others) who left another site (HPC) and seem to have found a happy home on GEI. There's plenty of discussion about topics like: Deflation vs. Hyperinflation. And whatever the topic, there is good two-way discussion, and very little "flaming". GEI also has a close relationship with a UK Podcasting site, run by Moneyweek columnist, Dominic Frisby. / / There's a growing number of Blog threads set up by other GEI members. Like Bubb, they provide commentary and rationale behind their trades. One was even so successful, that he made enough money to take a year off and travel the world. Others are developing their own independent trading ideas. Despite the name, there are many threads about topics beyond Green Energy topics. Peak Oil subjects keep reoccurring, with some new twists. Some GEI posters also have some ideas about how to jump ahead of the crisis and build alternative living arrangements. Perhaps this part of GEI will grow in the future are oil becomes more scarce. / / A newish area on GEI, is the Fringe section which conventionally minded people would do their best to avoid - Else it may keep them from scooping up the many pearls of wisdom that can be found on the main part of the website. / / Overall, GEI is a fascinating chatboard, which seems to be visited by a friendly group, which likes to maintain what is normally a respective attitude towards other posters. A newcomer can learn plenty on the website, and maybe be amused or even intrigued by some of the alternative ideas that are explored by various open-minded posters on the site.

Believe it or not, I think we can pass Singing Pig :

Latest Rankings:

GEI : #241,563 / GB#9,947 (54%) : 1 month 0.00069 +110% : 1 review, 53 links

SP - : #105,390 / GB#6,135 (XX%) : 1 month 0.00115 - 25% : 9 reviews, 71 links

It is not obvious when you look at the "1 month" traffic stats.

 

But if you look at the day to day traffic, GEI is now neck-and-neck or even moving past SP:

Perhaps the recent sharp slides in the UK property Indices has shown SP-ers that they need a more professional approach to the property market.

 

They are welcome to visit GEI as browser, or members. And if they want to JOIN as members and discuss property, I have set a special thread for SP folk as an "entry point" to our site - using a thread set up by M-100 : Link.

When did you leave HPC?

 

I suppose some of the HPC posters have been coming over to GEI to check out some of the threads here.

 

If so, why don't the HPC Lurkers pop in and say, Hello!

It is interesting to see the drop-off in Singing Pig's traffic. That has been fast. It looks like they are in an irreversible decline.

Maybe the same will occur on HPC when they realise that there is no longer a need for a support group "to wait for the crash",

when the Crash is already arriving.

The site - GEI - also looks more professional with the new Logo. Maybe that is attracting some newbies

30 Sept.

Traffic started rising before that date - see Blue Line, above

 

It is interesting that GEI traffic tends to rise when SP traffic falls, but that seems to be a coincidence,

or does it have to do with falls in property sentiment? / update

Does the arrival of sliding Property prices in the UK help GEI traffic somehow?

Thanks for Review #2, keri_eagan : (!)

 

Comments: I enjoy visiting GEI and learning more about investing and, perhaps more importantly, our global economic environment. In a forum environment I am able to ask questions without feeling like I might be manipulated into investing in something I don't really understand or is not appropriate for me. Green Energy Investors has an active forum with many experienced members participating. The value of these members freely sharing their knowledge should not be underestimated. Overall, a cool deal ;)

What is interesting, is that people are spending plenty more time on GEI than other websites:
