One Million Set List Fans Can't Be Wrong!

A milestone for The Spaghetti Incident occurred yesterday, the site passed 1,000,000 unique visits!


Thanks to all those who came and read the site, those who left comments, linked to us and emailed your version of how the gigs went down (STP's drunken gig being a classic). It's been much appreciated. Cheers, JJ

The Spaghetti Incident had been around since 2007 but it wasn't until March 2008 when the Rock 2 Wellington, NZ happened and artists like Alice Cooper and Kiss played. After putting the set lists from that weekend up, I got the bug. 1600 odd set lists later, we've hit a million visitors. Compared to other sites, it aint much but I'm pretty happy!


Eagle eyes will note that the stats have dropped off since the last quarter of 2009. That's most likely because I've been focussing on developing my Halo Reach blog and having a life in the real world.


The key to set list success has been learning to anticipate which concerts will be popular, such as reunions or fesitval spots and creating a place holder set list. Google loves it when you get in first! Learning about search engine optimisation techniques was a great help as well!  Matt Cutts also taught me a lot!
During the last 6 months, these have been the most popular set lists. Some surprises in there...
