OK. Let's have a little trivia here :)

I'm going to ask you a few questions, and we'll see who gets the closest to the right answers. Maybe I'll give out a few prizes...

Note: For all questions below, we are EXCLUDING Facebook, iGoogle, and iPhone traffic. This is only main Chess.com traffic, and numbers are gathered using Google Analytics.

#1 - How many UNIQUE daily visits did Chess.com get in January (example: 500 or 56,500,000)?

#2 - What % of people "bounce" from the Chess.com homepage (meaning, come, see the homepage, and just exit or go back - ex. 1.2% or 75.4%)?

#3 - How long does the average person stay on Chess.com in minutes (example: 1 min 18 sec or 72 minutes 30 sec)?

#4 - By what % did Chess.com grow in visits over the last 30 days (example: 2.4%, or 20.5%, or...)?

#5 - How many pages does the average visitor see (example: 1.3 or 75.8)?

#6 - What are the top 3 visited URLs (pages) on Chess.com (in order!) (example: play/iphone.html)?

#7 - Which two sites, aside from email programs and search engines, send the most traffic to Chess.com (example: blah.com)?

#8 - Which are the top 10 countries in terms of visits to Chess.com (in order!)?

There you have it. Make your guesses! I'll check back in a few days and give out some rewards based on the closest guesses.

Sorry they're not in order but they're guesses

@RetGuvvie98... England isn't a country. Its sorta like a state of the United Kingdom. England is to the United Kingdom as Texas is to the USA. As is Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. Just thought I'd let you know...

Do we get a membership if we win?

awesmond, if you click on 'members,  country list,   England shows up as a separate country in that list.  I presumed that erik meant to use that list as a guide.

regardless of any other commonly accepted factors.

regards,    and no, he didn't say what the prize would be, but If I win, cclynes can have my prize.

1- 21 2- 4.9% 3- 29.6 min 4- 2.3% 5- 15 6- Live chess, topics, news. 7- Yahoo and Google (i really don't know) 8- USA, India, Canada, Germay, China, Japan, Australia, England, Turkey, Ireland.
