The SRSrocco Report will be receiving a facelift and upgrade over the next week or so. The upgrade is necessary as the old site was out-dated and overdue for an update. In addition, site traffic has increased forcing us to move up to a faster virtual private server. No complaints here… that’s a great problem to have to deal with.
The look of the site will be quite similar to the old site, but there will be some minor changes and improvements. However, I am not a big fan of totally changing the look of a website. Matter-a-fact, I like websites that are simple and clean. The more cluttered a website, the less appealing it is… in my opinion.
That being said, the SRSrocco Report site is receiving a lot of new visitors each month. The site receives between 200-300,000 viewers a month… sometimes even higher when the precious metals market experiences a surge in interest and sentiment. In the past 30 days, 42.4% of the site’s traffic was from “NEW” visitors. That is one heck of a lot of new eyeballs. So, people are getting fed up with the Mainstream media and are looking for their news, analysis and information elsewhere.
Another very interesting and welcome trend at the site is that more and more people are reading our ENERGY articles. When we first starting publishing energy articles, they would receive maybe a tenth of the views (at best) compared to the precious metals articles. Now, some of our popular energy articles are receiving about the same amount of views as our precious metals articles. This is an excellent sign. Which means, more and more precious metals investors are waking up to the fact that energy is the most important factor which runs the entire economy.
For example, THE BLOOD BATH CONTINUES IN THE MAJOR U.S. OIL INDUSTRY, had the highest amount of social activity (Facebook hits) than any other article published to date and more views than some of our recent precious metals articles:
Moreover, I continue to receive comments on the blog and through emails that individuals come to the site just because of the energy articles. We try to put out information on the precious metals, mining and energy industries that you can’t find anywhere else on the internet. We like to take a “Birds-Eye” and “Fundamental” view in these various markets to see trends, data and information that most “specialized” analysts overlook.
2017 Will Likely Be The Year The Markets Finally Crack
Of course, no one has the perfect “Crystal ball”, but if we look at the political turmoil, market volatility, MSM insanity and massive Central bank intervention, 2017 will likely be the year the system finally cracks.
I can’t believe the Dow Jones has hit 21,000. Sure, some folks saw it coming, but it is by far the biggest bubble in Dow Jones history ever. Everything is leveraged well above our heads now. The entire U.S. Retirement and Pension Plan Market is about to hit a BRICK WALL. The Falling EROI – Energy Returned On Investment is gutting the entire system.
Because there isn’t a high enough EROI to sustain our technically advanced society, we are stealing energy where ever we can. Thus, the energy is being sucked from Pension Plans and soon, the U.S. Retirement Market and Social Programs. We just don’t have the profitable energy to run everything anymore.
Which means… we are cannibalizing the system to keep from collapsing. This isn’t a LONG TERM sustainable business model. Rather, it’s just a matter of years, at the most, before we enter into a collapse that we can never print or grow ourselves out of. As my favorite cartoon suggests:
No, we haven’t had the GUTTING of the Dow Jones yet, but when it comes, I plan on bringing this cartoon out of the archives… for good use.
I Wanted To Say A Few Things To The SRSrocco Report Readers
I really appreciate the folks who leave comments on the site as well as contact me via email. There are many long-term readers who contribute a lot to the site by their interesting and information comments. In addition, I receive emails from new and long-time readers all the time. Sometimes, it takes me a while to respond, but I try to reply to everyone. However, the amount of emails I now receive in my INBOX is becoming overwhelming. It’s nearly a part-time job… LOL.
That being said, I also receive valuable information from individuals (some high up the chain) from many different industries. This information confirms what my research has led me to believe… WE ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE, and the majority of the public has no clue.
Unfortunately, the postponing of the inevitable by leveraging everything at a larger and grander scale, will result in one mother of a SENECA CLIFF.
I Appreciate The Support By The Kind & Generous Donations
When I first started the SRSrocco Report site, I considered providing information via a subscription service. However, I believe the information is so important, I decided to publish posts and articles open for the public. That being said, I did elect to offer a “DONATION” button for those who wanted to support the site.
I want to thank everyone who has been very kind and generous in supporting the site. The donations really help with the costs, maintenance and now with the upgrade of the site.
If you have been reading and enjoying the articles on the SRSrocco Report site and have considered donating, your support would be greatly appreciated. If you would like to donate, you can find the DONATE BUTTON at the end of this article (actually every article has it at the bottom) or on the upper right hand side of the site.
The SRSrocco Report Wouldn’t Be As Successful Today Without My Webmaster…. Peter
I will tell you from experience, finding a good web designer or webmaster is not an easy task. I came across my webmaster, Peter, after he let me know I had some serious problems with my site. Peter had been following my work for quite some time as he has an interest in the economy and precious metals. However, he noticed the site was not running properly as well as suffering from some serious security issues.
I allowed Peter to work on the site, and he improved it tremendously. It has been almost two years now, and Peter continues to provide excellent service. Which is why he advised me that I should upgrade the site. My site’s theme is very old and the company who designed it hasn’t updated it for years. Old sites get bogged down with lots of ERROR CODES that destroy the functionability of the site.
So, I look forward to the new site… which should run a lot faster and provide an excellent foundation for several more years of new articles and reports.
If there are any individuals who are looking to start a site or are unhappy with the service of their current web person, you may want to consider contacting Peter at his site here: WP HELP 365.
