bo bunrham help[edit]

is there away we can redirect bo burnham to Bo Burnham? (caps) googling Bo Burnham shows wiki coming up at fourth hit, but non-caps pushes the site back to the fourth page.

i hope im making sense here lol..

no caps = http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=bo+burnham&btnG=Google+Search

caps = http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Bo+Burnham&btnG=Search —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wikifan12345 (talkcontribs) 01:48, 25 July 2008

not really[edit]

A lowercase search of bo burnham connects directly to the uppercase Bo Burnham. If it didn't then one could create a page there and redirect. It needs to be spelled differently to make a redirect page. You could make one the way you misspelled it, "bo bunrham" but that really wouldn't help much. MBCF (talk) 04:10, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

i kind of figured but id thought it was worth a shot. is it possible to make wiki come up on the first google hit for "Bo Burnham"? anything we as editors can do? Wikifan12345 (talk) 06:12, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
There are ways to make the page rank higher but you have to be careful because google ranking is smart. It knows when it is being tricked and then sends the rank down.
The easiest thing to do is to make links using "Bo Bunrham" as the link to well visited sites about BB. That can be done in the "external links" and by adding references to everything. The more times you say "Bo Burnham" in sentences that make sense as well as links using that name will do it.
The other thing to do is wait. It takes time. The longer the page exists the higher the rank. MBCF (talk) 12:45, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
Just googled "Bo Burnham" in quotes and ranked number 6 and it was google visited on July 12 (look at the cached page). Adding a section title "Exteranl Links" and listing all good Bo sites would kick it up a notch. —Preceding unsigned comment added by MBCF (talkcontribs) 12:49, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

20 Million Views[edit]

It says 20 million views on YT, yet on Tube it's only 2million+?

thanks!

reconstitution[edit]

I greatly expanded and cleaned up this article. Every iota of information is 100% cited to reliable sources, and I executed the manual of style for articular consistency's sake. I don't think I removed any information that was originally present, but if so, make sure it's verifiable before replacing it. — pd_THOR | =/\= | 23:59, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

View counts[edit]

It says in this article that "Burnham's videos have received over 10 million hits" This information is quite old and Bo's videos have now received around 20-30 million views. Can anyone fix this and find a verifiable reference on his number of internet hits.

Thanks! (also, awesome re-doing of the article!) Catscan32 (talk) 02:29, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Collecting the information ourselves is original research and synthesis, and we can't do that. The 10m number comes from The Boston Globe which, as you say, is just shy of a year old. The numbers are invariably higher, but without a reliable source we can cite, our options are either (a) leave the 10m number in (possibly noting "as of"), or (b) remove it. — pd_THOR | =/\= | 03:29, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

I don't understand. Why don't we just refer to Burnham's profile on youtube.com ?! He actually has more than 20 mio views on his videos by now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.230.60.192 (talk) 17:00, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

I discussed it at the original research noticeboard, and based on the input there, I've updated the count. The precise number at the very moment I looked was 32,648,901; I truncated that to "over 32.6 milion" for prose's sake. — pd_THOR | =/\= | 06:23, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

I have great photos to contribute from the CWRU show. see here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/7666059_pDc7h#494895257_3Z8Sr all are dual licensed under CC and GNU. Use what you want. LexieM (talk) 03:39, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Wow, that's hella awesome. Thanks, LexieM! I'll go through them tomorrow and look at incorporating some of them as I can. — pd_THOR | =/\= | 01:02, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

album consolidation[edit]

I'm considering replacing the two separate album articles with a consolidated article (User:fourthords/Bo Burnham discography) for the time being. The two album articles can't really be expanded significantly from where they are, primarily because I haven't come across the sources. Does anybody have any input? — pd_THOR | =/\= | 00:50, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

un-/under-utilized sources[edit]

missing information[edit]

even though Bo chose to go to NYU he was accepted into Brown and Harvard, source: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/fbptr/i_am_a_20_yearold_comedian_and_redditor_my_name/c1esgfm
