This year's vanity post

Web analytics reports tell us about blog visitors.  If we create a blog that attracts significant visits, trends in the data emerge.  When bloggers see positive trends we blab about those trends in vanity posts like this one. The trends for Low Power Radio are most encouraging!
     First, your faithful blog author going through three jobs in two cities in 2010 meant posts that year were few and far between.  How humbling it was to see visitors still using the (then) static content.
     Equally humbling was finding we are an international blog with a surprising number of recent visits from countries like Canada, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Germany, India, Russia, Italy, the Philippines and South Korea - thank you! Finally, the staple of the internet - top ten lists - looks both predictable and interesting at the same time.

Search Engine performance
  • About two thirds of our visitors arrive via a search engine, the balance linked from a referring site
  • 82% search engine traffic came from Google

    All the others made up the remaining 4%
  • blogger.com and translate.google.com sent oodles of visitors but I think those are already counted under Google. If not, awesome!
