New Stat Tool
This is highly irritating.
I thought my site was getting almost no traffic, so I was less inclined to write. Because I was less inclined to write, the site got less traffic.
I was measuring the traffic using Sitemeter, the same service that used to tell me 3,000 people showed up every day. I never bothered looking at my CPanel stats, because they were confusing. A few weeks back, Sitemeter crapped out entirely, showing no visits at all. I complained, and they didn’t respond.
Today I decided to stick a different counter on the page, and while I was working on it, I checked CPanel. It turns out I get several times as many visits as I thought. So people have been showing up, but I haven’t been here to answer the door.
I decided to install Statcounter today. The interface is weird, but it’s easier than trying to decipher the CPanel stuff.
I may blog more often now. Not sure.
I guess Sitemeter has really gone down the toilet. It says over three million uniques have been counted since I installed it. I have to wonder how many went unrecorded.
Anyway, nice to see you again.Stumble it! Save This Page
