Stat

Not long ago I noticed Blogger had added a stats feature to the dashboard. It tracks stats all the way back to sometime in May of this year so I suppose they added this feature then. Today I thought I'd share a few things I've learned from the data which covers the last 5 months or so.  

Sorry for the screwy formatting but cutting and pasting the info from the stat button has things a bit askew.

If I am not mistaken a pageview is not attributed to an individual post when a visitor comes to the home URL. So I think the reason these post rank so high as they match up the the list of search terms that most often bring visitors here from google, bing, or the other search engines.

Whatever the story. I'm glad so many of stop by to pay me a visit.

Since I read your blog on Google Reader, I probably don't get counted as a visitor. Unless I post a comment.

I found that stat thingy a couple of months ago. It's kind of neat to see where your visitors come from. It does make you realize just how small the world has become, when you have visitors from Australia, Russia, and the Philippines.

Stats are fun. I'm getting back into reading again online. Will remember to click your ads.

Looks like Google (Blogger's host,) is just including Analytics for you. Lucky bastard...I had to adjust my code for that years ago!

I'm late to the party but MAN this post made me laugh. Mainly from remembering the different posts. The one about the kids and serial kids was one of my favorites.
