Just wanted to say thanks for all of the fantastic, informative, and free content you’ve provided through time. On that note, I can’t fault you from omitting “attractive girls” to generate income for yourself…you deserve it! I am also surprised by how much I miss that aspect of the site but I do. It’s not the same. I remember an old school barber shop in the back of a bowling alley where I grew up that had Playboy magazines on the table next to the barber chair. I think when I was 10 or so I finally worked up the courage to open one and the barber didn’t say a thing. Just kept cutting my hair. Your site had that cool feel where you could get the news, interesting analysis, and a bit more in a classy way, regardless of whether it’s deemed so or societally appropriate. I hope you’re considering saying screw the ad robots and bringing back the ladies but my perspective is wholly selfish and my opinion cheap.Either way, thanks for all you do and Go Blue!
- Sports Illustrated has the swimsuit issue.
- Hollywood movies often have a love scene or two.
- Prime time television has The Bachelor with 30 women running around in evening gowns and bikinis.
- Teenage television shows often have at least one unattainable hot girl.
- NFL teams have cheerleaders.
- NBA teams have dance teams.
I’m not the first one to bridge the gap between sports/entertainment and attractive women.
So it’s not too surprising to me that within no time at all, traffic to TTB has dropped off significantly. One example: a typical Saturday for the last several years would send 10,000 to 11,000 page views my way. On Saturday, January 26, 2019, the site brought in 7,230 page views.
This is particularly frustrating, considering the following picture (please don’t ding me, Google):
Yes, that is correct: the above is a screenshot of a Google ad I came across while perusing MGoBlog on my phone. That’s Google saying, “Do as I say, not as I do.” They can make money from boobs, but I can’t. Realistically, I don’t have a choice but to go along with Google’s verdict, so I’m not going to lead a rebellion. In essence, Google is the employer, and I’m the employee. But it still doesn’t seem right.
On the plus side, perhaps the absence of scantily clad women on the site will eventually lead to more traffic. Maybe there were women out there avoiding the site because they found it to be sexist, or maybe there were some uptight dads, husbands, or employees skirting the site for fear that their kids, wives, or employers might glance over their shoulder and see a picture of Kate Upton.
