December Stats

Standard

I’ve had a MeasureMap for nearly as long as they’ve been in beta. It’s a great statistical tool that’s not received a lot of attention, short of when it was first launched and when Google subsequently bought them.

My site doesn’t get a lot of traffic, but December 2006 was the best month I have ever had on the site. Here’s a breakdown of the stats:

  • 1158 Visitors – That’s 456 more than an average 31 day period. Of those, 22% of visitors had been here before. That’s 252 visitors, 121 more than an average 31 day period.
  • 159 Links – That’s 74 more than an average 31 day period. In all, visitors used 198 links in and 159 links out
    That’s 113 more links in than an average 31 day period and 108 more links out than an average 31 day period.
  • 38 Comments – That’s 24 more than the average 31 day period.
  • 107 of 413 Posts were visited. That’s 76 more than the average 31 day period.

Some numbers since I started tracking

  • Your blog has had 9427 visitors who have left 187 comments.
  • Other web sites have made 1145 links in to your blog, and you have created 692 links out from your blog.

I know, these numbers aren’t breath-taking, or earth-shattering, but to me, it’s a sign of progress… December was a great month, and hopefully a sign of continued growth here on the site. I appreciate all of the visits an all of the comments and I look forward greater things in 2007.

  1. Yeah MM is pretty good, but I’m really concerned at the lack of updates/communication between the MM team and those of us that are using the service. Since Google bought them, there has only been one message posted by Jeffrey Veen about performance upgrades. Nothing else. :(

    Have you heard anything else Chris?

  2. Not a thing, Yannick. I too am disappointed on the lack of updates. Everything looked like full steam ahead until Google bought them. Then it seemed like development stopped. The one positive thing that I did notice recently was that some of the reporting sped up, but other than that… nothing’s really changed. I imagine that at some point this product will be killed off and Google Analytics will inherit some of its features and/or Google will release something like Google BlogStats based upon MeasureMap. Who knows… but an update on it every now and then would be helpful.

    Speaking of stats, I also use Google Analytics for overall analysis of my site. But it’s merely a backup for if/when MeasureMap goes away.

  5. Yeah I use GA too, but to be honest I don’t really like it that much. Oh well we’ll see how things turn out. hehe There’s always Mint. :)

  7. True, but Mint won’t work for me. My site is hosted on Windows Server 2003 under IIS6. I don’t think Mint supports that (yet). As for GA, it is clunky… and hard to use sometimes, but it’s better than anything else “free” out there.
