A Commentary and Analysis
May 5, 2010
The Pace Setter
Roz Zurko served Crystal Ray with notice early on in this race that she intends to become the new Pace Setter. At one point Roz led Crystal by over 115,000 page views. Crystal has since trimmed that lead to about 74,000 page views. Remember in The Rush to April 2010, Victoria Leigh Miller also led Crystal Ray in page views. These days Roz is scorching hot. However, if she is to become the new Pace Setter, Crystal will make her earn it.
Anyone that knows anything about Associated Content and page views knew that Kristie Leong MD would be the early favorite in this race. Not surprisingly she has occupied the top spot through this race. However, in 2nd place is Angel Vee. She is about 52,500+ page views behind, but she can gather page views in a hurry. She has earned the nomination for this month’s Best of AC in the Beauty category from many Contributors, including myself. Wendy Dawn is right on Angel’s heels in 3rd place, trailing by 54,300+ page views.
Though this race is far from over, Roz Zurko looks unbeatable at this stage in the race. Currently, she leads everyone by at east 534,000+ page views. There is quite the battle for 2nd and 3rd place. As of now, Ron Hart in his debut race is in 2nd place. However, he leads the experienced racer, Victoria Leigh Miller by 4,200+ page views. Linda Ann Nickerson is in 4th place, trailing Ron by 11,400 page views.
This is a tightly contested race. Josh Tuliano is the current leader. He leads Julie du Prey, who is in 2nd place, by just 261 page views and Georgia Lund, who is in 3rd place, by only 7,100+ page views. All three of these Contributors are consistent content producers and know what it takes to pull in the page views. Therefore, I expect this race to be a close one throughout.
Todd Jacobs has risen from the middle of the pack and is starting to take control of this race. Jan Peterson is in 2nd place and trails by 41,900+ page views. Heather Tooley is in 3rd place, trailing by 50,900+ page views. Tamara Waters leads Tamara McRill in the battle of the Tamaras for 4th place.
Millionaire Hoy showed one hell of a kick when he passed JerseyNana down the home stretch of The Rush to April 1, 2010. He has shown no signs of slowing down as he jumped out to the early lead in this one. However, I think before it over, he may face a challenge from one or more Contributors. Jeffrey Weeks is in 2nd place. He trails by 61,900 page views. However, those that know Jeffrey know that he is an expect wehne it comes to cooking up or fishing for page views. Jennifer Budd is in 3rd place, and trails Mr. Hoy by 68,300+ page views. Jennifer is one of the original racers and it looks as though she is getting stronger everyday as a Contributor. I believe shortly we will all witness her bud blossom in full bloom.
Can you say blast off? What other way can you describe how Joyce Carole has started this race. Kay Balbi has also started off this race nicely. Though she trails by 107,100+ page views, she has the talent to cut into Joyce’s lead. Third place finds R.K Lobello leading Wade Souza by about 500+ page views. Four other Contributors are within 9,000 page views of R.K. for 3rd place.
Taylor Rios has surged past Catherine Dagger and into the top spot. She leads by 2,225 page views. The ever improving, Mary Carol Herwood bravely stands in 3rd place at 7,231+ page views off the pace.
R.C. Johnson is definitely finding her groove as she knocked the other Johnson out of 1st place. R.C. leads Aaron Johnson by 20,900+ page views. Karen Sanders stands in 3rd place just 168 page views behind Aaron. Tony Payne, my nominee for this month’s Rising Star Award, sits in 4th place only 232 behind Aaron for 2nd place.
Currently, all twenty seven Contributors are within 7,607 page views of each other. Obviously it is anyone’s race for the taking. Becca Griena is our current leader with Leroy Coffie right on her tail, trailing by 338 page views. Kent Tompkins is making a nice push and he now rests in 3rd place just 1,158 off the lead Jillian McCoy drops to 4th, but is only off the lead by 2,022 page views.
