WordPress has generated a report on how this blog did compared to the millions of other blogs on their servers in 2010, and I thought it interesting enough to share with everyone. This site received a major facelift in 2010, and I have chimed in with a few edits of interest which are in italic.
The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 56,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 6 days for that many people to see it.
In 2010, there were 50 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 770 posts. There was 1 picture uploaded, taking a total of 65kb.
(Edit: In fact there were 30 + pictures uploaded, & the total number of “Jeff’s Blogs” posts is currently 204)
The busiest day of the year was December 2nd with 1,908 views. The most popular post that day was Fantino trying to bully shooting victims families.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were google.ca, caledoniawakeupcall.com, youtube.com, 126.96.36.199, and voiceofcanada.wordpress.com.
(Edit: What’s most interesting here is that a substantial number of referrals came from an IP address in Dalas Texas which perhaps coincidently has a Native American population of 10.455 according to a 2007 US Census Bureau report)
Some visitors came searching, mostly for canadian flag, racist police, julian fantino, ethnic cleansing, balm beach, and smoking is bad.
