I Love Information

So I needed a break from thinking about markup and decided to go check out the stats for lawver.net generated by my friendly web server. I stumbled on something interesting (to me):
* pages served in 2003: 67,492
* pages served in 2004: 581,041
* pages served in 2005: 1,003,530
I think I joined Dreamhost in about the middle of 2003, so that’s understandable. But, still, that’s almost doubling the amount of traffic every year. I think that’s pretty cool.
Some more stuff that’s probably only cool to me:
* About 25% of the visitors to this site are Mac users.
* NetNewsWire is the most popular news reader among the RSS consumers of this site.
* Bloglines is number two.
* Search engine bots index this site more often than they probably should.
* The most popular search terms that get people here are:
## sick movies
## beautiful font
## maddenisms
## green snot
## chicken noises (holy crap, I’m number one!)
## nerd jokes
* Over 25% of my traffic comes from Google if you include all the localized versions.
* About 1% of my traffic comes from inside the AOL campus local network (which oddly enough, doesn’t worry me at all).
* According to Sitemeter, I went from about 2,200 “visits” a month in October of last year to over 9,000 last month (which was an aberration, but July was still almost 7,500).
Told you I love information.

One thought on “I Love Information”

  1. Is it a coincidence that the increase came right when I started blogging about Veronica Mars? I think not. Hee.
    Seriously, I know why there is an increase and I am proud of you.
