tOFP by the numbers

Posted in Uncategorized by scarsonmsm on August 1, 2005

A large part of my day job is analyzing and reporting on web metrics, so I can’t help myself. Here are some stats from the first full month of tOFP:

Total Pages: 917
Total Visits: 222
Total Unique Visitor IP addresses: 98
Pages per Day (Ave/Max): 30/112
Visits per Day (Ave/Max): 7/57

Top 10 URLs:

1 /
2 /wp211.css
3 /about/
4 /submit/
5 /asgnmt/
6 /units/
7 /calendar/
8 /about/aboutme.htm
9 /about/syllabus.htm
10 /resume/

This seems pretty consistent with both people exploring the site and the pages crawlers are most likely to hit.

Visitors:

No surprise I am the most frequent visitor to my own site, as I’ve been working to get things set up and making tweaks here and there. I’ve made 35 visits this month. Another significant chunk appears to be web crawlers of various types (Google, RIPE, Asia Pacific Network Information Centre). I’d guess roughly half the traffic represents actual visits.

Non tOFP referring pages (referred visits):

Other than the brief flirtation with del.icio.us, whois, and bloglines, these are all links that I have initiated.
