The Cafe has a number of sources of activity. We have our Stat Counter that produced the data below. We also have the hits on our server which is the most accurate measurement. While the Stat Counter produced much lower numbers than hits on our server, the Stat Counter allows us to make consistent comparisons. The higher counts on ‘hits on server’ are because the server detects visitors that mask their internet protocol (IP) and, thus, are not detected by the Stat Counter. If we were to take the hits on server it would show 1 million page turns for the year February 1 2008 to January 31 2009. This equates to an average of 2740 page turns per day for 365 days. Nevertheless, here is the Stat Counter data for the last four years from January 1 to February 9.
It’s the BLUE bars that are the most informative because when we changed our format one year ago, the ratio between unique visitors and page turns diminished.
