October 2010

1.  Top 40 Pages

Again, this month, I found no great variation in the 'Top 40' pages.  Half the pages changed by no more than two positions. The 'What's New' and 'Maps' pages tended to drift down the chart this month.

2. Sessions

The total number of sessions during October 2010 was 446,602, a 21% increase on the number of sessions during September 2010.

3.  Pages Viewed

The total number of pages viewed  during October 2010 was 1,519,644 a 50% increase on the number of pages viewed in September 2010.

4.  Search Engines

The fairly steady number of visitors to the site from hour to hour that I have been used to seems to have changed a little.  There are now more peaks for what appear to be random hours during the day.

This increased level of activity may well be due to more search engines trawling the site.  However, I'm still finding that about 89% of the visitors who come to the site from search engines hae come through Google.

Incidentally the site has had  page ranking of '6' from Google for several years, but recently I noticed that this seems to have changed to '5'.  Perhaps I should think about doing something to try to get it back to '6'.  But I really don't need any more visitors as  I'm not trying to sell anything, and it's taking most of my spare time to keep up to date with the emails that are coming to me in connection with the web site.

5.  Matrixstats

The stats above come from Matrixstats, a service provided by FastHosts, the company that hosts my web site.

I don't know for how much longer I'm going to be able to continue using Matrixstats.  It is beginning to take a long time to get some of the results form Matrixstats, with the service frequently timing out when I try to download results from it.

6.  Alexa

I'm also collecting stats from Alexa.  I believe that these stats are biased in favour of the web searching activity of other Alexa users, most based in USA.

There has been little change in the Alexa results in recent years.  They continue to show EdinPhoto as being about:
           -   the 390,000th most visited site (worldwide)
           -   the 34,000thth most visited site (for visitors from the UK).
