We have published 44 pages of information, 19 posts and 25 static pages. There’s lots more coming!
As we track our visitors and what they look at when on the website with Google Analytics, we are able to look at what the most visited pages are. The top visited page, other than the home page, is a story we did on Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners out of the U.K. In fact quite a few of our visitors are from the United Kingdom.
We’ve had visitors from all over the world to OCD Life. The main concentration of visitors are from Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. OCD knows no borders and we have had visitors from places like Australia, India, Spain and Brazil.
Quite a bit of work has gone on behind the scenes on OCD Life. One major problem we’ve had to overcome is a high volume of spammers coming to the website. Though evidence of spammers has not been seen on the main website, we have been testing forum software and it is there that the spammers have been showing up. We’ve tested several anti-spam software packages to get rid of the spammers and we think we’ve found the right package. It’s running right now and seems to be catching spammers before they can flood the website with nonsensical posts and advertising.
Also behind the scenes is the testing of forum software. We spent several months testing WordPress’ Buddypress community software. We realized after a time that that particular software likely won’t work for us, at least initially. It is possible we may install Buddypress again in the future, once our community of OCD sufferers is up and established.
Currently we are testing a new forum software package and initial indications are that it will work well for our needs. We are testing plugins for the forum software now. It is our hope that we will have the forum software up and running and available to website visitors by first thing in the New Year.
