July traffic report

July was by far my best month for visits, with nearly 19,000 Sitemeter hits. That’s more than double my next best month. There were two factors for this. One was that search engine referrals are now being counted by Sitemeter. I’d guess that amounts to about 7000-8000 hits, which means that this still would have been easily my best month ever. The reason for that, of course, was the ongoing redistricting mess. As in the month of May, our legislative circus has helped bring many people here.

On that note, I’d like to thank the many bloggers who have cited my coverage of this continuing saga, in no particular order: Taegen Goddard, Atrios, Byron LaMasters, Calpundit, Rob Booth, Sisyphus Shrugged, Save Texas Reps, Ruminate This, Greg Wythe, Angry Bear, Ginger Stampley, Pacific Views, Linkmeister, Kevin Whited, UggaBugga, Scott Chaffin, Steve Smith, Daily Kos, Puri sermonis amator, JBHolston, Apostropher, Swanky Conservative, Henry Lewis, Greg Greene, Morat, PG, Norbizness, Thomas Nephew, and Jeff Cooper. I’ve probably forgotten someone, and if it’s you please accept my apologies for the oversight. (Update: And the winner of the I-knew-I’d-forget-someone sweepstakes is Tom Spencer. Sorry, Tom!)

As usual, top referrers can be found under the More link. As always, thanks to everyone for reading and for returning. I do appreciate it.

    I found your site last fall and, although I don’t check in every day, find it reassuring that someone in Texas takes a jaundiced view of most things “W”.

    Well, Charles, once again, great job. Where are you able to find “top search terms”? Is that somewhere on SiteMeter?

  3. Byron – All of the monthly stats come from a script that Dreamhost provides. The free Sitemeter account doesn’t have that level of detail. Check Dreamhost’s knowledge base – they should have a listing for a canned CGI script that does referrer stats.

    Diane Zamora?! Wow, I haven’t heard that name in a while.

    I found your site via your crossposts at polstate, though it was probably reinforced by eschaton and dailykos.
