I did a quick review of the 2003 stats for this site. Last time I posted my stats, Jeffrey Zeldman slammed my bad manners, but Cory thought it was fine and pointed out that he posts his stats ever new year. Liz points out in that thread that my site includes comments (and puts them in the same html as my entry for all of Google to index). Of the 8475 posts on my blog, 1247 are entries from me and 7288 are comments from YOU. This blog is more about community than a site with no participation.
A quick survey of people on #joiito about whether I should post stats also resulted in mixed reactions.
So, thus justified (and confused), I present (some of) my stats (in the continuation in an attempt to be a LITTLE PC).
And for the record, I don't feel inferior to sites that have more traffic than me and I don't chuckle at sites that have less.
This blog started 2003 with 5,000 page views a day and ended up with 28,000 page views a day. There were approximately 2.7 million sessions with 6.8 million page views for a total of 464 GB of blog viewing.
The Browser breakdown looked like this:
|Mozilla Compatible Agent||5.20%|
85% of you came directly to the site and 3% of you came from www.google.com. 1,210 people ended up here by searching for the term "best headphones" (hope you liked the Shure's!), 1,133 people ended up here by searching for "diet coke" (Sorry!) and 814 people ended up here searching for "stealth disco" (boy that was fun wasn't it?).
My RSS 2.0 feed was 24% of my page views, my html top page was 7% and my RSS 1.0 feed was 5.5%.
382 of you registered your name and birthday in my birthday database. (Thanks!)
37% of you came from .net, 19% from .com, 10% from .jp, 3% from .edu, 1% from .uk. .ca, .de, .au, .ch, and .nl and 21% from unknown (to me) domains.
