Traffic Analysis

According to the “traffic analysis” I can get from my hit counter I get on average 11 people a day viewing this blog. (That’s about 10 more than I expected). Since I started in September there have been 1,163 page views by 587 different people. Half my hits are return viewers and half are one offs. Monday and Tuesday are my busiest days and Friday is the quietest. 14 people even viewed me on Christmas day and my record high since I started the blog was Thursday27th December when 16 people logged on.

One other interesting piece of information is I can find out is how people find my blog. A “direct hit” is someone who has me on favourites. The other way is through a” referring URL” for example today someone found the blog by Google searching “steve allison Hartlepool” and another Google on “ghost hms trincomalee” also brought up my blog. I can’t actually back track to an individual as I only use freeware to generate the statistics but no doubt there are programs out there that would tell me by name who was logging onto my blog. I’m not sure I’d really want to know that…….but remember, nothing is secure in cyber space!
