August and September traffic reports

I managed to skip doing a traffic report last month amidst all the excitement. August and September were both pretty busy around here, with 56,000 hits in August and over 79,000 in September, which is a new alltime high around here. The traffic increase seems to have coincided with the hurricanes. I guess a lot of people were looking everywhere they could for information about Katrina and Rita.

Unfortunately, these past few months have also seen a spike in spam referrals. It’s getting so bad that a lot of bloggers are complaining about it. My webhost blogged about it recently, and Dwight wrote about a huge growth in spamblogs, which seems to be the driver of this annoying trend. He’s got more info here; all I can say is that I hope the folks at Google are smart enough to keep up with these guys.

Anyway, the usual list of referrers and search terms is below the fold. Sadly, the referrers lists are shorter than usual due to all the crap sites crowding the real ones out. Sorry about that. Thanks as always for visiting!
