February traffic report

I don’t really know how much traffic I had in February thanks to the sudden and inexplicable death of my Sitemeter counter early on in the month. After a couple days of ruling out every other possibility, I decided it had to be specific to that one account. I bit the bullet and switched everything over to the counter that I had (and thankfully still remembered the logon/password details for) on my old Blogspot site. I know I got about 21,000 hits since that was configured on Feb 11, so let’s say I got 32,000 hits. I got a lot of referrals from my post about Howard Stern getting dropped by Clear Channel while they were picking up Michael Savage, which helped drive that total.

By the way, I never did get an answer from the Sitemeter folks about my account. You do get what you pay for.

Top referrers are below the More link. As always, thanks for reading.

    How did you get noticed in the beginning? Just wondering.

    Boy, are your advertisers going to be pissed! No, wait . . .

  3. Sean, this post answers your question. It was easier to get noticed in 2002 than it is now, but the overall audience is a lot bigger now, too.

    Thanks, Charles. It just get’s a little frustrating putting so much time into it and having no one come and read.
