JakChat ranks far, far above all the other Indonesia-related blogs and forums (jakartass, indcoup, expat.id, asianSpunster treesplogger etc, etc. etc..) except Patung's "Indonesia Matters" -- which is like 78,000th. Amazing, good work chief! Not to toot my own horn, because it was totally kuku's idea, but If you look at the graphs on alexa, there has been an amazing upturn since grsb came online... hmmmm. Let's keep it going. Kuku, you gotta get all those rss deals like Patung has if you click this link on his site:

PB, If JakChat was a bar, I'd have about 20 different kinds of teeth embedded in my forehead from headbutting people.

yes, i'm working on it ... the rss feed is already operating in fact, but there's still a few bugs that have to be sorted out as well as a bit of fine-tuning ...

Blow my trumpet moment - 7th! http://www.alexa.com/browse?&CategoryID=25005

But alexa rankings can be funny things, not sure how much stock I'd put by them. If a lot of people subscribe to your rss feed it's likely to actually decrease your alexa ranking because they have no need to actually visit your site, unless they want to participate/reply/comment/insult somebody.

I remember one day I opened my yahoo email and there was a message from somebody which probably was my friend ( I couldnt even remember who sent it), and the message topic was: JakChat: Forums for Indonesia's English speaking community. I clicked on the link in the body of the message, which of course lead me to the website. Read some threads and thought it was a pretty cool site with combinations of light and heavy topics. And what made me interested the most was the funny arguments among the members. I've been sticking to the site ever since smile Good job everybody...

measuring internet traffic is a very inexact science, to say the least. and figures can be very easily manipulated using various traffic-generating techniques. so yes, i don't put a lot of weight on them. the most important thing for me is relevant traffic; that is, from people with a genuine interest in the content. nonetheless, it's nice to have some sort of comparative measure, and for all it's deficiencies, alexa.com provides that.

the problem is information overload. Similar to Business Intelligence. The issue is this (or this is what I tell clients of mine):

Do you want snippets of relevant information delivered to you, and make your own decisions based upon your interpretation those snippets

or do you want comprehensive data presented to you with the decisions pre interpreted.
