2009 Stats

OK, I know I said we were done with 2009: The Year in Review posts, but here's one more. How about I tuck it away in a Saturday post so it's less noticeable? I forgot I wanted to do this until I saw it over at my friends' blog (Heissatopia). So I'm going to completely and absolutely steal their idea and run some interesting stats for My Adventures in Tucson/Limbo/Ithaca (but probably not as in-depth because I'm not as savvy as Andrew).

Thank you for indulging me. And thank you, Google Analytics! Also thanks to Andrew and I hope he doesn't mind that I am attempting to duplicate, however poorly, his superior web ninja skillz.

I am kind of surprised at how many people google about the woombie. I don't know why, but I am.

Anna said...

Ha! I am glad Soapy's blog is represented.

Also, you need to start targeting Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Louisiana.. and the other ones. I think readers in all 50 states in a good New Year's resolution for you.

Lilianne said...

Yeah! We made the list. What's funny about this is that a lot of your readers come to my blog!

Cool stats. Aren't you glad you wrote the woombie review? I'm sure you gathered some very loyal readers due to that review. Here's to an even cooler 2010!

I was going to write a comment almost word for word what Anna said! It's interesting that you have readers from almost every state.

Andrew said...

Awesome. Itfadali :)

I think we're missing those same states. Maybe they don't haz the internets in the Dakotas…

Bridget said...

It does seem weird that I wouldn't get even a single visit from someone in, say, North Dakota. I have to wonder if it's something with the internet provider registering as a different state. I think my mom said that her visits sometimes show up as being from Canada.

sarah said...

i'm glad my living in wyoming at least helped represent one more state, if nothing else. lol

I didn't realize blog owners could know so much about me as a lurker. They even know how long I spend on their blog! To preserve our friendship, the reason I spent only a few seconds on your blog on Tuesday, 8 July, is because I spilled grape juice on my pants and had to go change right away.

Did you ever notice how they filled in Lake Michigan on your map? Perhaps they accumulate all wireless/satellite access and have to attribute it to a state. :)

Oh, and hits from blogger can come if folks click to your blog through your profile page (as in, someone read your comment, then found out who you were and what other stuff you write), and I wouldn't be surprised if traffic generated from google reader gives blogger a re-direct point.
