Thought people might enjoy knowing a few stats about their site.
We have doubled in size in terms of traffic flow between July and January. In July, the first full month I was tracking with my new host, we had 544 unique visitors every day. We know have 944 per day.
In July, we had 4,172 visitors for the month. In January, we had 29,271. They viewed 609,179 pages!
We will surpass 1,200 members by tomorrow.
Traffic on a typical day in January is surprisingly steady, hour by hour, through most of the day -- which means our audience and membership is truly international, otherwise the site would spike during work hours (the heaviest hours for viewing) in regions of the world where membership/viewership was concentrated. This was always the case with my technology weblog). Things do get quieter between 3am and 11am GMT meaning North Americans aren't online here as much in the evenings and Europeans aren't either late-nighters or morning people, for the most part. The quietest hour on the board is 7am GMT (Greenwich mean time, Dublin/London time that is).
That said, one of our biggest fans is the Googlebot (the Google program that comes and catalogues the site for Google). Google is also the number one referrer to the site (the way people come to the site from another website).
We are now adding over 100 and closing on 150 new members a month on average.
