Third Anniversary

Arimathea began three Octobers ago. For the last two anniversaries, I posted statistics to induce tedium and impatience in my readers. Naturally, I shall repeat the tradition this year.

The numbers below are followed by the matching number for last year and then by the number for the first year.

The number of combined page hits so far is 750,449 (346,591 & 51,294).

The accumulated visits for each type of page:

Arimathean realm: 6,111 (3,397 & 817)
About: 2,893 (1,649 & 386)
Acknowledgments: 1,338 (409 & 178)

Atom feed link: 10,974 (7,268 & 287)
Categories: 595 (230 & 94)
Comments (for individual posts with comments): 204,783 (99,723 & 4,411)
Comments preview: 137,577 (68,051 & 9)
Commerce realm: 7,953 (4,033 & 785)
Fonts: 1,177 (302 & 68)

Religion realm: 18,173 (8,894 & 2,211)
RSS feed link: 34,585 (21,490 & 7,271)
Search page itself (as opposed to searching from another page): 1,117 (78 & 16)
Search with results: 427 (103 & 62)
Search without results: 524 (89 & 8)
Smileys (for comments): 519 (337 & 66)
World realm: 13,856 (8,040 & 976)

The remaining hits were for non-existent pages (404) and various test pages.

As before, I suspect that more than half of my hits are from spambots. I receive many spammy comments, and the spam would explain the high numbers for the comments preview page. There are currently ninety-five real comments that I have not deleted, and the discrepancy shows how robotic the visits are.

New phenomena this year have been searches for spammy comments. In addition to intelligible search terms that visitors have submitted (e.g. evolution, Gospel, Newport, sex), I see regular searches for url=http://wasteyourtime.com/uselesspill.html. Who knew that remedies for erections, skin blemishes, baldness, and obesity took up so much of the nation’s attention? It is another testament to the veracity of Idiocracy.

My site’s top referrer has been Google. It is interesting to see what terms lead folks to my page. The world is a fascinating place.
