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!
