Viewing Figures

I’ve just realised that I haven’t been paying any attention to the number of visitors I’ve had over the last few months, so I missed the moment when I reached the next half million.  The count has now reached 4,571,856 – probably hitting 4,500,000 around July 6th – so it’s time to do another of my little summary pages to see if new topics have become important and old topics have faded to insignificance.

In fact, the top five remain virtually unchanged, though 4th and 5th places have swapped over.

The day has just started in Singapore – though it’s just coming up to midnight back home – and the view counter has reached 4,00,009 despite the fact that I’ve not been able to contribute much to the community for the last couple of months. Despite the temporary dearth of writing it’s time to have a little review to see what’s been popular and how things have changed in the 10 months it took to accumulate the last 500,000 views so here are some of the latest WordPress stats.

Once again the view counter has reached a vaguely significant number – some time overnight the figure crept past 3,500,000. So it’s time to have a little review to see what’s been popular and how things have changed in the 10 months it took to accumulate 500,000 views. Sitting in the lounge at Edinburgh airport I’ve now transcribed some of the WordPress stats.

It’s time for another landmark. The blog hit 3,000,000 views on 30th November  - but I’ve been too busy to do my usual analysis of posts. The latest half million took 42 weeks (five weeks less than the previous half million increment) and here are the latest stats on popular views:

First the top five across the lifetime of the blog (excluding the home page and opening menu) and the old faviourites haven’t changed:

It’s time for another landmark. The blog has just hit 2,500,000 views (taking three weeks less than the previous half million increment) – here’s a little breakdown on the numbers.

Anniversary

I missed my fifth blogging anniversary by a month – my first post was dated 24th Oct 2006 on the topic of the parameter optimizer_index_cost_adj.

Since then I’ve posted about 670 articles (and deleted a few temporary ones) and drafted another 110; I’ve acquired 750 followers;  and the blog has inspired a little  over 6,000 comments. It’s amazing how time passes and the numbers accumulate.

To celebrate the event I’ve created a new category (see top right) of “Site History” so that I could label that first post and the various posts I’ve made about viewing figures and popular posts.
