September  2013

1.  Top 40 Pages

There was quite a lot of movement of pages up and down the 'Top 40' chart in September, but there were only two new entries into the chart.

'Early Photography' and 'Edinburgh Recollections' both made significant progress up the charts.  I also looked at the 'Top 500 pages viewed during September and found that these included:

-  16 different pages on 'Early Photography'

-  99 different pages on 'Recollections'.

2.  Sessions and Pages Viewed

There were:

-  676,961** sessions in September (6% more than in August).

-  963,872 pages viewed in September (7% more than in August).

** No:  please see 'Update 1' below

Sessions

a)   How many Sessions were there in September 2013?
 Each time a person views the EdinPhoto web site, it counts as a session.

Stats for sessions and pages viewed above are taken from Matrixstats, a statistics package provided by my web site host, FastHosts.

Each month in recent years, Matrixstats has been reporting a large number of sessions with '0 pages viewed'  -  often about 70% of all sessions.   Why has this been happening?   I've now found the reason.

These reports of '0 pages viewed' refer to occasions when Google, Bing, Image-Search, or similar sites have been searching the EdinPhoto web site, looking for images.

From now on, I intend to exclude such searches from the monthly statistics that I report.  So, the stats for September 2013 become:

-  200,380 sessions

-  963,872 pages viewed

-  Average session = 4.8 pages

b)   How many pages were viewed in each session in September 2013?
