Gentleman who like Gentleman, and Ladies who like Ladies – the State of Queers4Gears is strong!
2011 was a banner year for Q4G. We welcomed new contributors Ross Bynum (Indy), Cody Globig (V8 & F1) and Carla Page (NASCAR). They share our love for racing and making people laugh….making them a perfect addition to the crew. Troy Germain and Michael Myers pumped out the weekly podcast: “The Queers4Gears Radio Hour” – and while it wasn’t on the radio and sometimes didn’t last an hour – we appreciate you listening each week.
Queers4Gears was profiled in two newspapers in 2011: The Santa Rosa Press Democrat and The Las Vegas Review Journal.
One of the year’s highlights was when YOU – our readers and twitter followers donated to support Q4G founder Michael Myers in the Las Vegas AIDS Walk. Q4G readers donated $1545.00 and that amount was matched by Penn and Teller! Thanks to you – over $3000.00 was donated by Queers4Gears to AFAN (Aid for AIDS of Nevada.)
Site traffic made a dramatic jump this year. Q4G moved to a new server host – and during the transition a technician asked if we still wanted the site blocked from the bots. We were not aware that the “bots” used by search engines to index material for your searches was being blocked from Q4G until late this year.
Once we invited the bots in…. traffic jumped from an average of 3,500 unique visitors per month to over 12,000!
In 2012 – we are adding a new podcast, Michael Myers and Hannah Rickards will be covering action off of the track this season in “Out of the Tunnel.”
Keep your eyes open for weekly recurring race commentary that we hope will keep you laughing.
See ya at the track……………
