Every now and then I like to check out the statistics on my web site and this blog. Here are some random things I notice:
- My blog gets 400-500 page views a day.
- My web site gets about 1300 visits/day with over 4000 page views/day. The blog is not included in that. Probably a lot of those are search engines. Googlebot alone was responsible for over 50,000 hits in October.
- I have no idea how many total page views this blog has had. Since May 2009 it has had over 200,000 page views. From May 2005 to May 2009 I hosted it myself, so the page views were not tracked by Blogger.
- My photo gallery passed half a million views a little while ago, and currently contains 2271 items in 121 albums.
- My blog got 724 hits from a Reddit posting (about CN 6534). You never know where the traffic is going to come from. For example, I had 42 hits from people searching for handlebar mustaches.
- I get substantial referrals from fellow bloggers like Eric at Trackside Treasure, Robert at Oil-Electric and Adam at The Walker Express.
- Blogger says I have 95 followers, which is awesome. Even creaky old Feedburner says I have 23 subscribers.
