Alexa Quick Pick

Yours Only George is Alexa's Quick Pick on the information page for the official George Michael site. According to Alexa:

The Quick Pick is the most popular usage-based related link for a site.

Related links are created through several methods, and one of them is based on the surfing habits of Alexa Toolbar users. A computer looks at the millions of usage 'paths' that our users create as they surf and tries to find relationships between sites. When a lot of people go from Site A to Site B, the computer may make Site B a related link for Site A. These are usage-based related links, and if a site has them, the most popular one will end up being the Quick Pick.

Last week, I posted that George was going to be on VH1 on July 9. I taped VH1, and didn't see anything on George. Could someone let me know if I missed something?

Official Forum Closing

I've decided to stop posting more articles on the closing of the official forum. All the articles are repeating the same information so I'd rather not contribute to the negativity.

On the positive side, there is a new unofficial George Michael forum available at www.talkgeorge.com.

George Michael on VH1 News

Don't miss George Michael featured on VH1 News tomorrow -- Friday, July 9 in the 10 a.m. hour!

Official Forum Closing

I have to admit I'm very surprised by how the media has grabbed on to this story. Since Yours Only George once had a message board with maybe 1 percent of the traffic that the official one did, I have to say that I totally support George in his decision to close the official forum. I closed the Yours Only George message board months ago because of certain troublemakers that I didn't want to deal with anymore. Hmmm... maybe I started a trend!

Official Forum Closing

As many of you already know, George Michael is closing the forums on the official site. In the forum, George says:

Closing The Forums - Message From George (6th July 2004 until 20th July 2004)

Hi everybody, this is George.

I'm afraid that, having visited the forums on a regular basis over the past few months, simply to see how you guys thought the album/interviews/promotion were going, I have decided to close them down. As many of you will know, much of my reasoning for the future is to stay away from the negativity of the media, I think that it is bad for me and for music in general, so I find it really sad to see the forums so packed full of negative comment, and that so many genuinely positive fans find themselves defending me (or themselves) constantly against attack. How pointless. There are plenty of places to read people slagging each other off, but I wasn't trying to create one in opening the Forum. Those of you that want to carry on the media's work will have to do it somewhere else I suppose....

Things will stay the same for the next two weeks, so that those of you who have made friendships can decide which other sites to meet at, and then the rooms will close. I feel bad for those of you who have always been supportive, but I'm afraid I want nothing to do with the bitching that has evolved between some members, (many members), and perhaps unofficial sites will be a calmer affair.

Sorry guys, but that's the way it goes... Peace and Love...or nothing at all.

Love as always.

George xx
