From: Peter For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: Rating websites Simple numbers like the RedSheriff rankings can miss a lot of information. I am an Xtra customer, and regularly visit the website so I can check my email away from home - I need to do this for some of my work. But I rarely bother to look at any information let alone advertising on XtraMSN, I don't like the site. How many people have installed for Xtra and have had that set up as their home site and don't know they can or can't be bothered changing it? And how how many of these skip through it to go where they want? My rankings: Daily Aardvark (I would have to list that first here wouldn't I) Google searching for many and varied subjects NZOOM (mainly sports) Washington Post News.Yahoo Mail via mail client therefore not website A few times a week: Stuff Microsoft.com (trying to sort out software problems) dunedincity.com (local weather) Xtramail PCMAG And a bunch of others occasionally (no porn for two years, it got very boring, besides, I have a very good relationship which I find is a lot more satisfying way to spend that sort of time) Total time spent on the net I use it for work and personal) - maybe 10 hours Time skipping through XtraMSN (and sometimes looking at acount details) - 5 minutes. Time deleting the HTML Xtra newsletter each week - 1 second (never liked it, and now it seems to be just a glitzier sort of boring). From: Mike For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: xtramsn How many hits on the xtramsn site can be attributed to the fact that you are automatically taken there when logging out of hotmail? I've also had a new browser session open at xtramsn/business page when logging in to hotmail. No wonder they are at the top of the rankings.Hit Reload For Latest Comments
