Visualizing our Traffic
Visualizing our Traffic
Back in January 2009, I started collecting Google Analytics data from visitors who had JavaScript enabled. The data is mostly for my own interest, but in case any of you are interested, I have set up a public profile which displays data from the last 30 days.

It can't display it all (nor would you want it to, since Google Analytics captures massive amounts of data), but what it does show are:

- Visits: the number of times people have started browsing the site.
- Pageviews: the total number of pages people have visited (different to "hits").
- Absolute Unique Visitors: the number of unique IP Addresses that visited.
- Unique Pageviews - the total number of unique pageviews (i.e. it doesn't count the same person reloading / revisiting the same page)
- Visits by Browser: The number of visits, sorted into the different browsers that were used.
- Visits by Keywords: The keywords that were used to get to the site via search engines.

It should update every day, so enjoy: http://www.seethestats.com/site/atheistforums.org

Oh, and if you are interested, since January 2009 we have had:

519,140 Visits
224,845 Unique Visitors
5,480,651 Pageviews

Our growth looks like this:

Take it the recent dive was the server changeover? Loving the after spike Smile

Wonder why after all 3 January's there is a spike? Maybe no one got the xmas presents they felt they deserved.
RE: Visualizing our Traffic
Yup, the two large drops are where the server crashed (April 2011), and where we moved server a few day ago. Since the DNS resolved pretty quickly, the forums weren't inaccessible for very long, hence why it didn't go all the way to 0.

No idea about the actual spikes in activity. I will look into it though Big Grin

Today: Google. Tomorrow... THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'
