Statistics Round Up

  I mentioned a while ago that I might do a post on blog stats. Now, I don't care about numbers for any ego reasons. I just like to see where people are from and what they like to read. Lately, I think my writing has gotten bland so hopefully I can fix that. Fiction perhaps?

  Anyways, I took some screencaps so you can share the fun. Most of them are "all time" stats but the first one is the last month since the all time just shows a slant and no fun bumps. And no, these stats do not track my own viewing, I made sure of that. If it's hard to see, just click and it will enlarge,

Peak was 140 *\o/*  They dropped off dramatically this week though

Almost up to 2,000. Cool :D

This shows which topics people have read most. I am going to start using this more to write in the direction people seem to want most. Looks like you guys like tourneys :D I'd rather keep away from drama though

I was a bit surprised that most of you are from the US, with the UK in second. I think it's really cool to see all those other countries I never would have guess on there too. Ireland especially is a place I want to go before I die.

It seems Blogger tracks just about everything. I use Google Chrome myself and I guess I'm not alone. Of course, Mac users are the smaller pieces, but not as small as I would have thought. Take that Windows xD

   I hope this is fun for you too. I love feedback, so if you want to see something written about let me know. After all, I humbly serve my readers.

*UPDATE* Alright, so you guys asked about some additional information and as I put in my comment, I did some digging. I searched through a few tracking services, but I think Feedburner will do the best job, since it specifically said it tracks GR hits and others. So, to my knowledge this is a redirect from my original feed to get accurate results. It is now live and hereafter will track how you guys read my posts. When I get some better results, I'll do another post or come back to this one. I hope that works :)

  Take care,

I also use google analytics on my blog so I get more detailed country statistics. Blogger only shows the top 10 countries for the time period selected.

Also, do people using the in-game browser show up from their home country, or from london?

I read your blog via google reader - I wonder if it shows up or not.

Ah, true I never thought of the IGB. I wonder if that's in there as the native client or not and in which country. Not sure myself.

Yea, I figured the stats might be skewed since people have so many different ways of reading nowadays. Perhaps it's part of the mobile or just shows as the browser used?

I would also be curious about if it shows stats for people using Google Reader

Ok, so I did some hunting. I am an artist and writer, so the nuances of what I found are a bit beyond me at the moment. Heh, I only just started learning HTML much less modifying this. From what I understand, Blogger doesn't have the option to track views from the RSS feed. I have to tag the links in my feed with the utm variables. Not sure how or what to do for that. Feedburner is also something I found which I might test out to see if it tracks Google Reader hits. I've never used Analytics myself. Does it track GR hits, Azmo?

I don't believe that analytics catches google reader hits, since I imagine that involves some sort of cache and converts the entries to something viewable in reader.....No clue, really.
