Today I am happy to see that weekly viewership of my knols has gone up to 4000. Of course Judge's weekly viewership is above 10,000. I am not really free to concentrate and write knols and my health is not also good at the moment. I shall have more focus from July 2009 and I am thinking I can plan for 1000 knols each having 5000 page views in the year. That will give 5,000,000 page views in year. 5 million, right. I think it is possible. 100,000 page views in a week.
Many other knollers will achieve similar targets and knol platform will move away from the worries of the survival of the platform in 2009-10.
I think knol admin should release knol page view and other statistics for the entire platform on daily basis or weekly basis. Some of the statistics can be:
Daily page views
Cumulative page views
Daily authors registered
Cumulative number of authors registered
Daily knols created
Cumulative number of knols created
Average page views per week for a knol badge quality knol
Average page views per week for a five star quality knol
Average page views per week for a four star quality knol
Average page views per week for a three star quality knol
Average page views per week for a two star quality knol
Average page views per week for a one star quality knol
Average page views per week for an unstarred knol
Average page views for an author
Average page views for an active author
Such a score card can give excitement, information and enables planning by knol writers.
One more of my suggestion is that blog search engine of google should search knol also along with blogs. Blogs are user generated content and knols are also user generated content on a different platform. Hence it makes sense for blog search engine to search knols also.
