Number of Visitors to these pages

I commenced this page in 1999. The number of visitors have increased each year since, with the peak time being late November early December.

 

Late November 2001 saw 1,750 visitors a day to this site.

 

Late November 2002 visitor numbers peaked at 3,300 a day. More amazing is the fact that from 1 January to 11 October 2003 there had been an average of 42 visitors each day.

 

By Christmas 2004 I had changed to another style of counter which records Page Views. It recorded 173,000 Page Views for the 2004 year.

Visitors for the year.

The new counter also records the country from which our visitors come. It is done by noting the last section of their email address.

 

For example JoeBlow@stv.com.au The dot au (.au) at the end of the address indicates Australia as the home of this person. .uk indicates England. .nz is New Zealand and so on except for the USA which does not use this country indicator.

 

Here is a list of the countries from which people have visited during the period 1st January 2005 to 30th June 2005 together the number of Page Visits recorded by them.

Mid 2006 I changed counters again. The figures for November and December of 2006 and 2007 are similar. November about 7,000 and December about 13,000 visitors of which one quarter of them visited the pages more than once.

Each year about 300 of the visitors spent over an hour browsing the many pages.

In 2006 25% of the visitors added my pages to their Favourites thus bookmarking the page and in 2007 that figure grew to 50%.

In January 2013 I decided that I should update these numbers. I find that for the 12 months to December 2012   I had hosted 246,022 visitors.
