Hi, it’s Greenygrey, thanks a lot for all your visits so far in 2013. Great to see that the year has started off the way 2012 ended. Of course, we don’t know who you are, so you could all be negatives, but hopefully you visit the site for entertainment and information. If you would like to comment or contribute, or request work, please use the website contact page: http://greenygrey.co.uk/contact_marc_latham.php and please make clear your message title to avoid being mistaken for spam.
While we are mostly providing the statistics below as thanks for your visits, it could also be seen as blowing our own trumpet; and as the Greenygrey believes there is always a certain percentage of personal gratification in every philanthropic act, we believe you’d be right to think we’re doing this for the Greenygrey too.
Our research training and media experience Greenygrey thought process also makes us think the increase in website visitors could be down to changes in media technology, with more devices on the market and increased internet usership; and the way Google and other robot spiders (not metallyinsect ones) search the web.
Anyway, it’s great to see increased visitors, and we hope you continue visiting in 2013. Here’s some statistics and analysis.
The website was set up to entertain and inform in our own style and with our own views, while hopefully attracting work to help become self-sufficient. We like to think we’ve been successful in the former, if not the latter; maybe our focus on the former has hindered the latter? Here’s how our views compared in 2012 to our first year of 2008:
- In 2012 we had 11,925 visits to the site, compared with 3,212 in 2008.
- In 2012 we had 43,678 visits, compared with 6118 in 2008.
- In 2012 we had 151,278 page views, compared with 31,494 in 2008.
- In 2012 we had 272,548 hits, compared with 120,526 in 2008.
- In 2012 5.93 gigabytes of bandwidth was used, compared with 745. 17 megabytes in 2008.
From our statistics we can see the countries of our visitors, and while we respect you all as individuals and don’t really care where you live, the following nations showed up in the top ten monthly visits during 2012.
If there is any (good) reason for this, we’d like to thank: Netherlands, France, Germany, U.K., Russia, China, Sweden, Tuvalu, U.S.A. and Lithuania.
In 2013 we plan to follow up the 2012 publication of Werewolf of Oz and 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections with another book that we hope to believe in and one we think provides value for money: a five years of Greenygrey epic super-book.
We are also delighted to announce that we will once again be sponsoring our favourite average endurance athlete Marc Latham, as he strives for new levels of averageness. In the Greenygrey world, word has it that we fought off a takeover bid by Red Bull, who see Marc as the next Felix Baumgartner…
