The January Numbers

It is getting a bit harder to figure out what the statistics are for Serendipity35 these days. Now that Tim moved the blog to new server digs at NJIT and also to a new beta server off-campus, we actually have 3 URLs, so traffic is spread around.

Our original URL was but that server also has some other sites (including the wiki Tim & I created)

The new NJIT location is http://dl.njit.ed/serendipity, which is our "official" URL, looks the same (a "mirror") and our beta off campus at is really just a way for us to play with our future. It does look different and it's a bit behind since it pulls posts from the other site for now.

So what are the hits for all these locations for January 2009?

# 1,735,189   #2  2,257,567  #3  28,710

These numbers are inconceivable to me. That's a lot of views. Of course, "hits" is also somewhat deceptive. If we were a for-profit site, we'd be more interested in "unique visitors" and other things.

I'm actually very happy to see that 88.96% of the traffic to the site comes from educational .edu addresses.That means that we are hitting our "target audience."

But I am also very happy for those 686 visitors from Kazakhstan last month, and Hello to that one person from Greece!
