    I think it will speed up after the initial surge wears off.

    I’m thinking of inserting the word “Rooster” into the title of my blog. What think you?

    So are you up in the middle of the night, shooting baskets while running your vacuum in your car?

    I saw my first of these ads last night, but they didn’t tell what it was for. So I naturally went to the website. The funny part is then I clicked over to my feedreader and saw this post!

    Believe it or not, I haven’t seen one on TV yet. If it weren’t for my Statcounter and the search phrase feature, I wouldn’t even know about it. LOL πŸ™‚

    Think of all the sleepless people who are being accidentally entertained. You’re providing a real service.
    I hope the makers of Ambien are not advocating violence against roosters. I’m reading your blog because I assume your rooster was dead when you found it.

    It’s nice to meet you…you’re #1 in Google for “silence your rooster”!
    But I don’t hear any roosters, it was just curiosity.
    Anyway, hello from the lovely Shuswap Lake area, British Columbia, Canada…

    Hilarious? Those Ambien ads are the dumbest thing I’ve seen in a long time. And their corporate website is a nightmare. When did we decide that weird-for-the-sake-of-weird is funny? That doesn’t take any intelligence at all.

    I agree with you 100%. They are not funny; however, when someone types the SYR search phrase into Google, the word “hilarious” in the description helps to bring more visitors to my blog. LOL πŸ™‚

    If the makers of Ambien are looking for weird, they need look no further than the reported side effects of their product. When I took Ambien, I didn’t need a rooster to awaken me in the middle of the night…without provocation, I simply arose, strolled into my kitchen, and helped myself to a hearty “breakfast” of hummus with pita bread, mango sherbet, a couple of almond cookies, and crumbled blue cheese on trisuits. I had absolutely no memory of having so shamelessly pigged out the next morning. None…just the crumbs on the counter & the empty containers in the trash to tell the story. I hope your blog doesn’t cause similar side effects.

    Hi William,
    I just had to come back because I’m laughing after reading about you and your, uh, famous novel: “Eskimo Love Triangle: The Story of Incessant Barking Outside the Igloo”…
    Did you ever imagine how much fame you’d gain from a sleep aid advertisement?

    P.S. I just subscribed to your blog, and would like to commend FeedBurner for providing the confirmation letters in a font that this granny can actually read!

    Eskimo Love Triangle–Haha! I wrote that “About Me” page so long ago I forgot about that. LOL πŸ™‚

    I’ve gotten some pretty good traffic from the Ambien ad. I hit the top of the front page at Google at precisely the same time the SYR search phrase hit #1. I got clobbered with hits…and, I loved every minute of it. Hehe! πŸ™‚

    I’m unsure how we can tie into our gift basket site, but worth the try

    Hi Scott!

    The Silence Your Rooster ads were a major traffic source a few months ago. Believe it or not, I still get a few people searching for it every day. LOL πŸ™‚

    Argh! I landed here totally by accident, but read your post and was dying to see the rooster videos (my mother-in-law is having some rooster ‘issues’ right now and I was going to send it on to her)…

    Well, the page loads a whole lot faster now, but… it only has all this boring drug facts about the med – no entertaining video to be found.

    Too bad for me, and too bad for my mother in law too, I guess! LOL

    I’m another husband of a desperate housewife who awoke at 3am to find that the combination of my snoring, my rooster’s joyous renditions of his pickup line, and her neurosis repelled her sleep inducing neuro-chemicals like a gay rights of California organic weed growers association vegetarian potluck dinner repels Donald Trump. Having found no helpful hints on silencing roosters, I am going to have to rebuke him with a stern, “You’re fired!” and pull the trigger. At that point your blog title will become very relevant.
