Again, this month, I found no great variation in the 'Top 40'
pages. Half the pages changed by no more than two positions.

The fairly steady number of visitors to the site from hour to

little. There are now more peaks for what appear to be random hours during

from search engines hae come through Google.
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.
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.
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
