It’s been well over a year since I last looked at the traffic statistics for this site - to be honest I’m not overly concerned with getting huge numbers of visitors. Things seem to be going smoothly, with plenty of interesting annotations, and that’s what matters most.
But someone was asking me recently about the stats, so I’ve just analysed the logs, and here are the highlights for May 2004. According to webalizer, the site averaged 11,801 page views a day, with an average of 3,309 “visits”. This is slightly less that February last year, but that was close to the frenzied launch of the site - I’m surprised the figures are still so high to be honest! The most page views on a day was 22,863 on 8th May, and most visits was nearly 4,000 on a number of days. The totals for the month were 365,848 page views and 102,596 visits.
Up to today we’ve had 10,708 annotations to the diary and 2,490 in Background Info, for a total of 13,198.
