"Rolling" 30 Day Total Listening Hours
There seems to be something wrong with the 30 day totals. Let me explain. I have a new station on Shoutcast. It's been barely more than a month. Naturally, the numbers shot up throughout thoe first 30 days reaching a total of around 103,000(that's barely more than 3,000 a day).Bear in mind that it took the better part of three weeks to start to be noticed and to get my (former) Live365 crowd to make the switch.When I was streaming on Live365, I was averaging 6,000 listening hours per day with a "cap" of 500 listeners. Now, I'm streaming on Shoutcast with a listener cap of 700 and consistently have between 525 and 600 listeners tuning in. That, in itself, would have me believe that I should be raking in MORE than 6,000 hours per day (the TSL is 1 hour plus, by the way..on Live365 it was 42 minutes). So, now that the audience is building and there are TWICE as many tuning in now than in the early days here on Shoutcast, could someone please explain HOW my TLH on the 30 day rolling total could be on the way DOWN!?!?!? Any explanation would be appreiated. Sorry to take up so much of your time and space, but this just doesn't make any sense. I've been in this Internet Radio business for 5 years, so these rolling totals, etc. are FIXED in my mind.
