Its been a while since I have updated the News section of the site. The content (or the lack of it) has been compensated with more lyrics instead and also new features which I have been testing off-site. The site also received increased traffic every day compared to previous months which saw approximately 300 unique visits a day. Hopefully the site can reach 500 visits a day in no time. Some frequent visitors will also notice that the number of ads has increased somewhat due to the fact that no one advertised in our site, despite the cheap prices we offer. As a result, I need to display external ads (Google, Adbrite, Nuffnang) to cover the overheads of the site maintenance. Read on to explore new features.
1. Google pagerank:
2. Alexa ranking: 847,457
3. Quantcast rank: 1,646,399
4. Facebook members : 164
5. singklyrics.com traffic rank in other countries:
* 15,598 Malaysia
* 72,962 Singapore
* 97,273 Canada
Due to increase in demand, I have enrolled a feature that will enable registered users to download demo song of the displayed lyric for education/practice purpose. Sing K Lyrics strongly encourages you to support originals and the music industry as a whole. Our servers are in no way hosting any of the downloads, as we are in no way, a music download site. The links provided, hosted by external websites, for each lyric are on best effort basis. Please request it by leaving a comment on that lyric page. Once again, we, at Sing K Lyrics urges everyone to support originals, as it will save the music industry, especially in such economic situations. Note that however, if there has been abuse or complaints, I will not hesitate to remove the download feature from our site. I will monitor for a few months to see if it is feasible to continue.
Sing K Lyrics Chart
As promised in the previous newsletter, Sing K Lyrics Chart will be launched. The chart would be based on the number of views that visitors logged on a particular lyric and also the popularity it holds in karaokes. We will review our score metrics in future to reflect a better quality chart. At the moment, the frequency of the update will be low (monthly), but I will try my best to update as frequent as I can (weekly perhaps, it depends..)
Iphone/Ipod Touch Version
This might be the milestone that the site will achieve so far since its inception last year. Words can’t describe much. I will let the pictures do the talking:
Note that this mobile theme applies when viewing with an Apple® iPhone, Apple® iPod touch, Google® Android or Blackberry® Storm touch mobile device. The purpose of this theme is that I wanted a simpler interface for lyrics using mobile rather than loading the full page, which also incorporates KTV. You can now bring your iPhone or iPod touch to karaoke centers with Wi-Fi enabled and load your favourite lyrics and sing from it, instead of bring printed lyrics.
That’s all for now, let me know if you have any other improvements or suggestions that could help the site in a way or another.
