July traffic report

July had a slight downtick to 49,000 visitors (August has already exceeded this). I continue to think that's just randomness, mostly due to fluctuations in search engine referrals. The holiday week is also a slow time.

July featured the appearance of some guest bloggers for the first time in this space. I think they did a great job - they certainly let me relax during my time away, knowing that the place was in good hands. Having decided that a little time off now and again is beneficial, I figure I'll do something like that once a year or so.

July also featured the unfortunate reappearance of referral log spam, which is still the stupidest use of spammer resources that I can imagine. I guess it's marginally less annoying than comment or trackback spam, but still.

Top referrers and search engine terms are beneath the fold. As always, thanks very much for coming by.
