I just noticed that the listing for AutoIt that I put on download.com sends virtually no traffic to the site (~800 downloads a day and only about 30 from download.com). It was the same with AutoIt v2 when that used to have a listing. Odd, but whatever.

Could I ask that people add reviews (be nice or i'll sulk!) to the entry to see if that is the reason for the lack of traffic. According to my weblogs most people find AutoIt via search engines and the freeware sites but it can't hurt to give download.com a prod as well. I'm quite interested to see if the lack of reviews affects things this much.

The link to add reviews is at http://download.com.com/3000-2094-10266756.html?tag=lst-0-1

There is a link at the bottom of the page.

Cheers.

:huh2: Its a bit strange to see a software package made available on March 4 and then see 7 reviews all on April 30 and all ThumbsUp (and lots of red dots too :D )....

Could this wave of interest be a coincidence ? :)

Hi Jon,

Can you edit your Minimum Requirements listing? "Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/2003 Server"

Even though you mention 4 OSes for which there is no "Server" version, I can see how people could think a "server" is required. (Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/2003 Desktop or Server) would hopefully nail it.

Gene :D

It's hard-coded by CNET, you just get a list of boxes to tick when you submit.

And what is 2003 Desktop? :huh2:
