18 months on – stats for this site
Posted September 16, 2009on:
In the interests of the entire internets (ie: me) I now post some stats from this site, which has been “active” (in the very loosest sense of the word) for about 18 months.
First up, top 17 posts:
So, basically people are coming here looking for answers to coding problems. Much like what I do with 90% of the blogs I visit. (Note to self: write more of these)
Now – top 11 search terms
|ie7 css filter||547|
|ie7 specific css||476|
|mysql insert or update||188|
|print_r to variable||150|
Basically lining up with the top 5 posts. No prizes for guessing where most of my traffic comes from.
I’m surprised at how much interest my short review of Tumblr has produced.
Top 15 referrers
Some blogs, a Google Code project I administer, my Twitter account, some comments I’ve left and a few extra bits floating about.
Next – traffic summary
This really is something I should use to convince some clients of the value of frequently updating content and doing something (anything!) to promote their sites – and the traffic to this site is tiny.
As you can see – for the first year I didn’t even do anything with the site and since then I’d be lucky if I average one post a month. Despite this, traffic rises – which goes to show the power of writing things that at least a few people are interested in.
Any stats you care to share? Link them up in the comments.
