At the beginning of June, only the most hard core of soccer enthusiasts knew who Hope Solo was, and pretty much no one would have considered Alex Morgan a celebrity. Today, after a magical run to the U.S. Women’s World Cup title game, both are pretty much rockstars. The outspoken goaltender, and the sweet-talking striker became international phenomenons due to their high athletic ability, and extreme hotness.
Back in June, TSB hit the 2,000,000 pageviews mark. Needless to say, we went from 2 mil to 3 mil a HELLUVA lot faster than we went from 1 to 2 million. And as you’ll see below the “Solo-Morgan Bump” is a major reason why.
So let’s look back at what those two USWNT stars have accomplished in that summer.
Morgan and Solo have replaced Ines Sainz and Jenn Sterger has are all-time #1 and #2 search terms generating traffic. I consider that a HUGE step up for the credibility for this site. Now we actual athletes in those slots, not “journalists” known mostly for dressing slutty.
What follows are Solo and Morgan’s top ranked posts from the past quarter. The first two are our site’s all time #1 and #2 single posts- and the numbers for each one continues to climb daily. We’re also including some of the soccer duo’s other high trafficed posts. Click on the links and enjoy!
It was a magical three months, we broke daily traffic records, and then broke them again 3-4 more times. Shattered weekly records and more than doubled the monthly record. And we’re just get started.
SEE YA SOON AT 4,000,000!
And I promise, when we hit 10,000,000 I’m throwing a huge party and having Naughty by Nature play!
(I’ve heard you can hire them for only $8,500-$9,500- that, and the fact that 90s hip-hop is my all-time favorite genre of music is the reason I’m choosing them for the night’s entertainment)
Circle the date for sometime in 2015…hopefully things pick up even more and we can hold it much earlier than that.
