Traffic update

March 2, 2008 pm31 9:27 pm

This blog has been busy. Not from the carnival (#9 had 3000 views, #18 had 1100, #27 is only at 300 so far – why do they go down when they are getting bigger and better?), but even those 300. And the old pay scales, and the new ones (Yonkers and Paterson), and old math posts, and old teaching posts, and old puzzle posts, and UFT/DoE posts. Long and short of it: February was busier than January, which was my biggest month so far. Numbers are in thousands.

Leap day, my a$$.

    Are you comparing views within time intervals of the same length here? Carnivals are the kind of entries that are revisited when people have time, this is a busy time of the year, and your election posts would be attracting an audience overlapping only partly with the readership of math carnivals. Would that explain your numbers?

    Yea, how are you tracking these views? I know I’m reading the site through RSS readers.

    I am comparing all-time page views, excluding RSS (which makes up only a small fraction of my traffic).

    I am also comparing the first few days up and the peak day (usually one or two days after posting)

    All time page views – first week page views – peak day page views
    (these numbers include RSS for 1000, not for the others)
    CoM IX – 3233 – 2271 – 838
    CoM 18 – 1190 – 541 – 206
    CoM 1000 – 502 – 367 – 137
    (data is from WordPress’ internal counters)

    Now, with time this may close some, but the kick from the first days and first week? Real.
