Of pages, blogs and stats

This is a compilation of the most visited pages on our site and blogs. As we said in a recent blog, Lies, damn lies and statistics, these are not always the most reliable way to measure the effectiveness or otherwise of a web presence. Nevertheless they hold a certain fascination don’t they?

Main website: read-out.net

We have had a website since 1994 but only started taking stats around the year 2000. It has grown from an average of about 500 unique sessions a week up to over 6000 and seems to have settled around 4000 over the last few years.

During the month of Januray 2011 we had 16,296  looking at 36,150 pages. The bulk of these were from .com domains which include US users but also many other locations. The highest country location outside of the .com (USA?) visiting the site during January was .co.uk, followed in close succession by Canada, Netherlands and Israel. All in all over sixty domains visited from locations as far apart as Romania, Turkmenistan, Singapore and Chile.
