StatCounter Metrics


My traffic metrics on StatCounter have become quite interesting. My average daily traffic is well over fifty unique visitors a day (which bodes well for my Adsense revenue--maybe I can retire by my 108th birthday).

It's very interesting to see how the traffic varies based on the seasons of the year. For instance, before Hannukah, I got a lot of hits to this entry.

Presently, I'm getting tons of hits for Robert Burns Night from all over the world. In fact, I've seen Robert Burns hits from far reaching countries like Maritius, Germany, India and China. (Transplanted Scots, I'll assume.) I'm pretty impressed that I'm fairly high in the Google pecking order on this topic!

I have also recently been getting a fair number of hits on my Body For Life photos, and these are probably people with their fresh New Years' resolutions to get fit. Though I'm a little disconcerted that my smiling, speedo-clad picture is being used for this inspiration.

Impressive numbers. Looks like you're getting tons of drivebys.

Mine isn't searchable, so the traffic is pretty consistent (and much lower in quantity than yours). Mine usually has about 25 unique hits a day with 20 of those showing as repeat visits (I fully suspect the others are returning also that aren't letting cookies be set). And strangely enough Mondays and Fridays are always about 10% higher than Tuesday through Thursday (guess people are looking to avoid work on Monday and Friday). Weekends usually have numbers down 40% from normal.
