Web Site Ramblings

I thought I'd share a few more statistics on my web site, just in case you needed something to put you to sleep.

Web traffic has been pretty constant over the past month, which is fine by me. I'm doing this mostly for myself, and I cover a very specific topic, so I don't expect huge growth or popularity. I'm just glad people find use in my site.

The people who use my site tend to live in North America, more specifically in the northeast portion of the continent, which should be no surprise. Nobody from Greenland or Alaska looked at my site last month - what a pity!

Judging by ad clicks, the most popular section of my site is the videos (27%), with the NB Southern section a distant second (17%) and the CN, New Brunswick East Coast and general New Brunswick sections about tied for third (around 8% each).

I intend to go through my web site and embed some YouTube versions of videos into the basic web pages to provide not only pictures but videos of each unit, if possible. I want to script that so I don't have to go back and update the page itself when I add a video. Similarly, I want to replace the pictures in my web site with references to my photo gallery so people can download higher resolution photos if they are available.

Do you have any thoughts on how I can improve the site for you?
