This last month has been quite a good one, I had one article go into the hundreds, Why don't the poor marry? And I had the fourth most success month ever, with over 1700 views, I still haven't cracked the 2000 mark yet. The above article has made it into the Top 10 list of articles on the site, but that isn't quite right. Here is the Top 10 list as Blogger presents them and next to each, in brackets, I'll include the total number of times the article has been clicked on.
(1174) Free Trade Versus Protectionism
(813) Feminism, Why we are not Feminists
(795) What do Traditional Conservatives believe?
(720) Why do Conservatives believe in different social classes?
(675) The Discrimination of Anti-Discrimination
(282) Why don't the poor marry?
(323) Government and Traditional Conservatism
(342) The Loneliness Epidemic
(274) The Paradox of the Autonomous Individual and the Expanding Government
(264) The Stages of Liberal Reform
& just outside of the Top 10 is: (262) The three meanings of word 'politics'
Now you can see that Why don't the poor marry? should be in the Top 10, but not in 6th place. You can also see that Government and Traditional Conservatism and The Loneliness Epidemic should swap places and move up a spot. So why don't the numbers match up? I believe the reason is because Blogger (and I believe Google) give more weight to recent posts and more recent clicks than to older ones. Which means that it is not a true picture but a weighted one.
My worst day this month was the 12th of August when I had 25 visitors, the only only day I had with under 30 visitors. My best day was the 18th of August when I had 134. Also of interest is that in the first eighteen months of this blog I have had over 10700 American, more than 4,500 Australian and more than 1,000 British visitors!
As always each month is from the 11th of one month to the 11th of the next month.
The United Kingdom is four times higher, Germany has nearly tripled, Canada is nearly double and France has also increased.
The Netherlands is back in the Top 10 as is Japan. Sweden came in on two days and then vanished.
Turkey has left the Top 10 as has Indonesia.
I have also received visitors from the following countries Ireland, Finland, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Croatia, Serbia, Latvia, Estonia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Israel, U.A.E.,India, Bangladesh, China, Macau, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Burma, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, Tunisia, Nigeria, Kenya, Zimbabwe, South Africa, New Zealand, Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina.
I look forward to seeing you again.
