While it isn't about a cryptid encounter but I thought the hits on the various sites was interesting.

Is that in terms of general traffic to the site?

Actually, I'm going to have to check the article again. I just scanned it quickly so I do need to check it a bit more thoroughly.

........now that I think of it I probably should have done that before I posted it up. :blush:

Oh dear, seems this is the result of a poll taken on a site called the "Bigfoot Lunch Club"

This from them:

In a two-week poll we asked Bigfoot Lunch Club fans which websites they visited most. Kentucky Bigfoot came out on top.
There are two good reasons why Kentucky Bigfoot topped our list.

1) Kentucky is a hotspot. The much anticipated Erickson Project has claimed to have convincing evidence from Kentucky. Plus, Kentucky will be showcased in two shows this coming TV season; Finding Bigfoot and Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy.

2) The second and larger reason for Kentucky Bigfoot topping the list is the Organization itself. They are as authentic as researchers can be, extremely organized and they reach out to their audience. They are inclusive and share their research publicly. Their self-described purpose, "...is to obtain 'one' database as to monitor population density and migration patterns for all reported Kentucky Bigfoot encounters. To determine authenticity, credit is given to each source and witnesses are contacted whenever possible. The information contained therein is being used solely for research and educational purposes.

Lead by Charlie Raymond, a high school teacher and IT Specialist. Charlie holds a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Florida. He developed this website to document all credible bigfoot encounters in Kentucky. He believes bigfoot to be a "flesh and blood" unidentified hominid, VERY closely related to us.
Out of 165 voters we ended up with 18 listings the top ten list is below.

I was doing some more looking and it seems every one of these sites has some sort of tie-in to the BRFO......boy get a TV show and suddenly everyone is your bloody partner in .......uhm.......whatever, huh?

Ok, I've been doing some surfing on this site, "Bigfoot Lunch Club", talk about being all over the place? It's very eclectic and one thing seems to run right into another thing which is sort of but not quite the same thing. Interesting stuff however, I can't decide if they're just trying to cover all the bases or they simply have a sense of humor they aren't afraid to show......unlike this place at times. They even have a secret hand shake.

UM has a secret hand-shake too, Ken.  But if I told you it wouldn't be a secret anymore....

We do? Why was I not informed of this?

Bigfoot Lunch Club let's people know about theirs........they have it posted in the public section of their website. Not really a good way to keep a secret, huh?

Actually, I'm the only one that knows the secret handshake.  Its a special honor that was bestowed upon me several months ago.  I am known as the Shake-Keeper.  I was carefully trained by the previous Shake-Keeper prior to his shuffling off this mortal coil.  Now it is my destiny to preserve the secret handshake and someday pass it on to a worthy successor.

It must be a terrible burden for you.

I was chosen - what can I say? The downside is that I have to practice the shake 50 times a day, to preserve its integrity.  Very tricky.

.....but......uhm.......doesn't that require that you have a partner to do it right? Or is this person your apprentice in training?

I don't currently have a partner.  I have to shake with a manikin.  Its very tedious.  I'm sure you understand.
