Call For Help with Measuring the Webcomic Audience Project

I’ve learned quite a bit from the “Measuring the Webcomic Audience” project this year. Pushing it to the next level though will require talents and time that Comixpedia staff alone does not have.

The next step for the project is to obtain data from counters (and possibly server logs if creators provide permission) to generate another source of readership data to complement (or possibly replace) the Alexa and Ranking data.

There is a very similar project for blogs called “Ecosystem” (which you can see here) that may be the basis for this similar effort for webcomics at Comixpedia. Or it may make more sense to create a new system from scratch.

If you are interested there will be a dedicated message board on the forums and a mailing list for more active participants.
