Since our traffic reports are now publicly available at any time (the link is in the “About” box), I haven’t been routinely posting on traffic-related matters. But on the occasion of our 3,000th registered visitor signing up (welcome, Janet K!), I thought a brief update was in order.
From Dec. 1, 2004 (when our statcounter code went live) through today: over 3.5 million page loads. Over 1.3 million unique visitors. Over 7,000 posts. Nearly 70,000 comments.
Our two biggest days remain primary day and election day, 2006 — we had nearly 10,000 unique visitors on each of those days, and something like 30,000 page loads.
Not surprisingly, traffic has dipped a bit since the excitement of the 2006 elections. Since the beginning of this year we have averaged something like 3,000 unique visitors a day, and about 7,000 page loads.
Thanks, once again, to everyone who reads, posts, lurks, or otherwise makes use of BMG!
It is truly a joy to be able to exchange views with those on the left wing of society who have more than a little common sense. I am glad to be part of the lurkers and posters on BMG, and I sincerely congratulate you and BMG on your achievements to date.
We are not always welcome on liberal blogs, and your tolerance of our views is recognized as both genuine and muchly appreciated!
