Bloggy stats

Every now and again I have a look at the stats just to see what's what.

Below is a weird happening in page views, I think that's what you would call a spike!


Graph of Blogger page views

In Jan 2016 I had  71,140 page views, more than any other month

What was happening in January 2016?

Colin was diagnosed with cancer, was it this that made everyone look or was it because I posted on 29/31 days or was it because it was winter and everyone had nothing to do except peruse blogs?

Then there was that odd month with dozens of mysterious page views from Russia............ that made the Russian bit of the all time map turn green

But enough of this fiddling about...........................

Do you know this quote................
Lies, damned lies, and statistics. ... The term was popularised in United States by Mark Twain (among others), who attributed it to the British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli: "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."





Back to normal soon

  2. I don't bother looking at stats much. More concerning and most upsetting is the change this morning that I discovered blogger had made to their layout. I am not at all happy with it.

  3. I'm with Serenata on this one, the layout change is more diabolical than anything, not impressed

  4. I get quite a few regular Russians , then it spikes now and again . it's mainly to do with what server they're on most of my Russians are Latvian and Lithuanian , there's an awful lot live round here in Lincolnshire

  5. spikes are referrer spam. Ignore it. Not a problem (and not meaningful either). I use StatCounter for a more useful guide to popular posts.

    1. No I know it's not a problem and I'm not bothered about the stats anyway, just a way of filling a blog post!

    2. On the first blogger page where you see your blogs, comments etc and also the list of blogs you are following,a lthough you can't see it all now. Unfortunately because I didn't know it was going to caphange can't show a before and after photo which would have illustrated it well.

  8. I had a russian spike too (not sure that that doesn't sound a bit creepy)
    I like to look at stats, though I don't have anyway near your numbers to look at. the layout HAS changed a bit Sue. My bloglist is now bottom left hand corner and a few other fiddly bits. Mind you lots of things have changed over the last few months, (probably something I have done) I can no longer follow as F.I.D but with my full name, which I am loath to do, so am not following any new blogs at the mo. Have also lost my blog list from the side bar (which you noticed before I did!)Also a couple of people have contacted me to say that they have tried to follow me and been unable to, which might be why I seemed to be stuck at a certain number, but more likely I've become even more boring!

    1. No not more boring. The way you follow or are followed changed. I 'lost' about 30 followers overnight on one of my blogs.

  9. I had a Russian spike then too! Weird much.

  10. I have noticed similar too, but nowhere near the numbers you have. Yes, Russia turned quite green for me too, and the same unexplained spikes. I do seem to get quite a lot of traffic from you too!

    1. Nice to hear people are coming from me in Suffolk to visit you in Wales! Funny because most of my traffic comes from Sue at New Life in the country in Wales. So if it wasn't a virtual world there would be people crossing the country back and forwards!

  11. I get some huge spikes occasionally. I think someone must be reading back posts. I must look to see if the Russians have invaded.

  12. I've been looking at my stats a bit lately as I've noticed something really strange in the referrer names. usually it's your blog and one other, but something curious has been showing up. something and nothing I'm sure, but odd nevertheless.

    You certainly get a lot of views. Oh and it's the dashboard that others are talking about with blogger. They've made a few changes. Nothing too drastic, though because I have comments moderation on, any comments waiting to be published don't show up. It's taken me ages to track down where to find them!

  13. I had a bunch of Russian readers awhile back as well. Not sure why. Lately it's from another country but quite as many. I enjoy your posts, Sue, about your life in England. Wish I could go over for a visit as I remember it well after living there for 2 yrs. It's changed but it's a fun place to be. Even better that I know the language!! Tee Hee! C

  14. Lol I look at stats too. My blog isn't that popular, but it does get looked at a little. My poor blog on your blog roll doesn't look like it's been updated in ages but I have been posting. I admit yours is one of the few I read. I love hearing 'news' from home and just pop in like a bad penny a couple of times a week.

  15. I must say, with some guilt, that I add to the 26 th January 2016 views, every time I come to read your blog. That is the day I started reading your blog and the day I saved onto my list of blogs I follow. When I come in to read your blog, Bloglovin brings me in on that date, then I go to the current month and start reading where I left off. I'm NOT responsible for thousands of views tho! I enjoy your posts, and hope you get to move soon, and that 2017 is a much more relaxing year for you than 2016 has been. Cheers!
