Few days ago I made some changes to my traffic statistic service and it stopped counting the hits on this blog. I had to start a new count from zero.
I thought to myself that this can be a chance to write about the statistics so far and after I checked the dates I noticed that the service stopped symbolically exactly one year after it started. I really didn't remember it's been a year already...
Isn't that a real sign?
The count is from January 17 2008 to January 16 2009. The blog started at January 12th but statistics started only on the 16th. At that point there were 5 posts already as at the beginning I really did posted a song a day as planned...
So here it goes:
1,300 Visits (exactly!)
908 Unique visitors
2 Minutes and 17 seconds average time spent by a visitor
59 Countries (top 10 are: Israel, United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Netherlands, France, Australia, Denmark and Thailand)
71 Referral websites (which where the source of more than 50% of the visits)
464 Visits from search results of 368 different keywords
The most successful keyword is "erika kessel" which sent 11 visitors :) (Thanks ek)
The next 3 successful keywords are different spell outs of the sentence "are you lonesome tonight laughing version"
Top 4 posts:
1. Are You Lonesome Tonight (the laughing version)
2. official black google
3. Classic moments - Lego style
4. we are not athletes
Most visitors in one day: March 29, 2008 - 106 visitors (which went mostly to the official black google post).
Hopes for next year: Much more good songs and posts, much more comments (that's your job!) and more visitors.
I am sometimes sorry that I posted such great songs at the begining of this blog when I had no readers at all (except one actually). So I will take advantage of the one year celebrations and the recounting of the traffic statistics, and will symbolically re-post the first song I posted on this blog - American Breakfast by Supertramp.
