I love statistics. Yes, I know that makes me a little weird, but no more than any other habit I have.
I've had a look at my blog stats and there are some strange things in there, such as the search terms people use when they come across the blog.
The most common one is, mwilloughby.blogspot.com. Why anyone is actually searching for that term I don't know, but there it is. The second most popular is adolab. Huh? Well, it makes sense in way, as a quick Google search will show. ADOLAB is an acronym for Attention Deficit...Ooh Look A Butterfly. If you search for the term, my blog on the subject comes up second on the list, after the Facebook page which has 102 likes and an interesting picture if you scroll down a bit. Vegetarians may not like the picture.
The next three search terms, in order, are blogger, from sand to glass and martin willoughby. Next comes medieval machines. As I'm not on the first three pages of the Google search on that term it's one I can't work out.
The section 'referring sites' is topped by Google and Facebook. YAWN! There is, however a little oddity in there. The German site www.blog-zug.com. Specifically its page blog-zug.com/?mwilloughby.blogspot.com. I still haven't figured that one out.
Which was the most viewed post? Strawberry Flame. Why, I have no idea. But if you follow the link it will become even more popular. The post is a reminder to myself about why I write and I still agree with the sentiments now.
Finally, where do my readers come from? Here's the list
United Kingdom 5496
United States 4393
That means I'm almost a worldwide phenomenon.
Well, now I've sent you all to sleep, I bid you adieu and I'll see you on Wednesday.
