Pinch and a Punch It’s the First of the Month Thanet Blog Popularity Chart

Once again the statistics for this blog, first where my visitors came from (details of the numbers of people who clicked on a link on another website to arrive here) which gives some indication of the popularity of those other websites.

Here is the link http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/shop511/
 The pictures are screenshots from two different sources of statistical information about this blog and will expand into something large enough to read if you click on them.

There is a marked move away from Internet Explorer as the main web browser it is still being used by about half of us, but the latest version i.e. the most secure one won’t work on Windows XP which most of us are still using.
 I think the Google Analytics figure is more modest than the Blogger statistics figure because the code it uses is only in the front page of the blog, so that it it doesn’t pick up readers who click on a link to a particular post.  
 Thanks to all of my readers during the last month, however many there were.


To end on a note of embarrassment the counter on this blog has now passed the 200,000 mark the only problem is that I can’t remember when I put it on.

You will have to rely on Bloggers Pageviews all Time History which started in July 2010 and tell you there have been 165,574 visits since then.   


PS. On mobile blogging, there has been a marked increase in people assessing the Thanet Blogs by Iphone, this is a mobile phone that allows you to access the internet from almost anywhere. This facility has now become so cheap, I pay an extra £20 for six months unlimited internet access on my pay as you go phone. Making it the cheapest internet access I know of.

Much of this access is now happening via http://thanetblogs.blogspot.com/ which allows one to read the comment and posts on the main Thanet Blogs from one internet page. This is much quicker on a mobile connection than opening each blog one at at a time.     

No comments:

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
