Osmena Park stands beside Davao City's Hall of Justice, near the City Hall. Tourists - both foreign and local - mostly ignore this neglected parcel of land. I don't recall ever visiting this before. But it's an interesting place where a cheap massage could be had under tree canopies. There's a monument at the center of the park, with some canons surrounding it. Nearby is a children's playground with replicas of life-sized animals: eagle, crocodile, giraffe, monkeys, elephant, rhinoceros, zebra. Museo Dabawenyo is found at the back of this park, upon crossing the street. Entrance to this park is free.
There are massage therapists at one corner of the park, duly licensed by a governing arm.
Do I really need traffic from Lonely Planet’s Thorn Tree Forum? To make an objective assessment, I observed two successive 24-hour traffic in “Eye in the Sky” and came up with this: the first 24-hour generated 2 visits from the forum, the next one had “one”. If we do the math, that’s 2 out of 251 visits or 2 out of 333 page reads within a day. What percentage is 2 out of 333? Is that an impressive number in any shape or form? Should I seek out its traffic-generating prowess?
In another documented statistics of referring URLs and sites (date inclusion: last 30 days), most of my traffic came from google.
If I were thinking straight, why would I willingly and “gratuitously promote” my blog in a site that generates such measly referral? I didn’t even invite all my yahoo and Facebook friends to visit my blog – now that would assure a steady number of visitors. I hate lightly veiled threats, but more so in the form of “friendly reminders”. They dumb down sarcasm and inspire arrogance on my part.
