Inveterate dabbler in business, travel, gadgets & life

One day in the life of my blog.

Yesterday I inserted the code that Statcounter gave me so that I can track site visitors. Tons of interesting information and graphs.
This pie chart shows the percentage of visitors who stayed for varying lengths of time.

Visit Length
drill down 25 Less than 5 secs
drill down 2 From 5 secs to 30 secs
drill down 4 From 30 secs to 5 mins
drill down 3 From 5 mins to 20 mins
drill down 1 From 20 mins to an hour
drill down 2 Longer than an hour

Other information was that I had 67 visitors yesterday and the most visited page was my write up of the technology2.0 event with 25 visits. The most used search expression was pees on earth. With 9 out of 13 using google for search. 69% of visitors were from the UK and 31% from the USA. 33% used Firefox and 55% using IE
However, the free version only tracks 100 visits, should I upgrade!

  1. Or use Google Analytics, which is free and unlimited (from what I can tell). I’ve got similar stats from that, and it works quite well.

  2. I use Statcounter too, and like it, but I often wonder how many readers I have who just read the RSS feed, which it won’t measure, I don’t think. If people click from the feed to the actual blog, you’ll get ’em….
