Today marks three months since I decided to try this blog experiment. This almost marked post number 100, but will be post 102.
I’ve made it a point to try and make a post every week day. Sometimes I’ve done more than one, sometimes I’ve done some on the weekend. It’s been fun, having a place to just write whatever I feel like.
The site has had 1174 unique visitors, averaging 25 per day. There have been 76 RSS Feeds (which I think means people reading from an RSS reader). And 4861 Pageviews. Though, the 5 top days of unique visitors occurred at the beginning of September.
There have been 216 total comments, of which, 114 were not spam. That’s a pretty even ratio, but at least the non-spam is ahead slightly. Of those comments, I can recall only a small handful that were not people I know.
The vast majority of people have connected using Windows XP (1183, which is higher than the number of visitors, so I don’t know how these numbers are calculated). A surprising 38 people have connected using Windows 95. I wasn’t aware Windows 95 was still compatible with the internet.
Most people use a variation of Internet Explorer, though a respectable amount use Firefox. In third is Chrome.
Here are the top ten search terms:
Seems SWTOR topics are the main driver of visitors. All in all, not a huge showing from search engines. What is surprising is that my handle (Maarkean) and a friends (Lahbacca) have brought equal traffic. I wonder whose out there searching for Lahbacca?
My top referrers was the Rogue forums. A total of 53 times people clicked the link from there. Followed by that is other places on this website. A surprising 16 people came from The Ancient Gaming Noob, thanks Wilhelm.
I have no idea what these numbers actually translate to in terms of real people reading. Have 1000 real people read the blog? Are there really 75 real people subscribed to it via RSS? Or are the majority of those visitors spam bots? If we use the comments as a comparison, maybe 500 real people have visited the site. That’s not to bad I guess.
If there are any real people reading that have blogs of their own, how does 1128 visitors in the first three months look? Good? Pathetic?
