Greetings and Salutations!

I am always intrigued by what particular parts of BellaOnline happen to get a lot of traffic. For whatever reason our psychic tests now get more traffic than any site in our community! They have become a key way that people find out about our site to then explore the other areas.

You can see the Psychic Test main page here -


These pages bring hundreds of thousands of new visitors to our site every month. My aim is to help ensure that we then lure those visitors into exploring the rest of our site and finding our actual content.

I realize that some editors have reservations about psychic tests and that is quite fine. This is completely up to each editor, if they want to benefit from this inflow of traffic we already have.

What I'm thinking is that we can link given psychic tests to areas of our site. As an example, we have a "Birds Psychic Test" which involves bird images. It would make sense that people who click on that probably like birds. Maybe we should then link those test pages to our birding site! That way when the people are done with their psychic test fun they can then start reading about birds and get hooked on the birding site.

Or for example we have a "Colors Psychic Test". We could link that to the Feng Shui site where they learn how different colors effect our emotions.

Again I want to emphasize that this is completely up to you. You can choose to participate or not participate based on your wishes. If you do want to participate and none of the existing tests seem to match up with your site topic, let me know and we can brainstorm about adding in a new test.

As always, let me know if you have any questions or comments!

Lisa Shea, owner
