Other Sites

I've found that adding my photos to Instagram is far easier than adding them to the EdinPhoto site.  So I'm still updating EdinPhoto, but I've begun to add more of my own photos and short video clips to Instagram.                                                                           -  Peter Stubbs:  May 2015

Visitors to EdinPhoto Web Site

Thank you for visiting the EdinPhoto site.  There certainly seems to have been a lot of interest in the old photos and recollections of Edinburgh.

Visitors to Date

I created the EdinPhoto web site in 2001 and have updated it almost every day since then.  Since 2005, the site has received an average of  14,000 visitors per day from around the world.

The site has been visited by 242 of the 247 countries that currently have access to the Internet.  i.e. all countries except Antarctica, Comoros, Galapagos Islands, Mayotte and Western Sahara.  so, if you are in one of these five countries, it would be good to hear from you!

Visitors per Day

I compiled the figures above from stats that I downloaded monthly from the web site.  Unfortunately, since September 2009, I've not been able to obtain the same stats because FastHosts' Matrixstats program has 'timed out' whenever I've run it.  However I have been able to run the job for individual days without it timing out.

Here are the results for a few individual days:

-  22 Aug 2011:    10,094 visitors from 99 countries

-  23 Aug 2011:    Visitors from a further 20 countries

-  24 Aug 2011:    Visitors from a further 13 countries

-  4 Dec 2014:        21,387 visitors from 113 countries

-  5 Dec 2014:        Visitors from a further 14 countries

-  6 Dec 2014:        Visitors from a further 9 countries

Please click on this link to see the countries that visitors came from on these six days.

My Monthly Photo

Between 2012 and 2015, I added several photos to this page on the EdinPhoto web site.  (Please see the 'All Monthly Photos' link below.)

However since February 2015, I've been overwhelmed with emails, questions and contributions to the EdinPhoto site, so I've not been able to find the time to add any more monthly photos to the site.

The last monthly photo was added to this EdinPhoto Home Page in

February 2015
