You've probably heard of the effect where, if you're pregnant, you'll notice pregnant people everywhere, taking over the earth.
It turns out the same happens with new websites coming online.
While this one is my "pride and joy" I'm always starting some new blog or website. Ten days or so ago, I started a couple websites with a friend on zombies. That's right, zombies- everything zombies. Wouldn't you know, as soon as we made that decision, I've heard Zombie discussion everyday. It's popping up EVERY day in conversation. Sure, some of that is the Halloween peak, but a lot of it is because general zombie-talk is on the rise. Check out this infograph from Google insights.
We haven't clearly figured out the entire form, flow or function of the web sites, but part of the reason to do all of this is that the web, despite its obvious thirst for zombie info, does not have many quality sites.
Interestingly enough, I know nothing about zombies, and for someone who technically operates three zombie websites, that's a tad embarrassing. So I spent some time doing some high level research. The most interesting thing I noticed was the intense geographic hot spots of zombie search activity.
Who knew that the zombie search term was so popular in the Philippines? I'm amazed at its popularity throughout the southeast Asia area. And...I'm looking forward to learning more about why that is...because the world deserves good zombie sites.
Check out the whole zombie report here.
And since I figure you wonder, two of the sites are www.killthezombie.com and www.savethezombie.com
