My Stats and buzzfeed.com

I had a bonanza in terms of page views and visitors yesterday and I have buzzfeed.com to thank for that.

I average a paltry 150 page views per day. On a good day I might hit 200 page views. I generally average out at about 80% of those views will translate into a visitor. However, yesterday I hit 1,009 page views and 784 visitors. These are records for me and I am not expecting that this popularity will be maintained.

When I logged on this morning at about 10.30 I already had some 500 page views.

I thought this to be a little weird seeing that 500 views is about 3.5 times my whole day average. So, I checked out the stats and found that I was getting all these hits from buzzfeed.com. It seems my post of the virtual strip search was linked to a piece on the buzzfeed site. Maybe I will have to start dropping hints to them so they link to more of my stuff.

In any event, buzzfeed.com thanks for making my Friday a statistical record breaker.

wow!
1009!?!

so....can I haul my old truck over to your place and put a 'for sale' sign in the window?

Out here on the country roads, there's rarely more than ten people drive by all day!

Or, istead of transporting the old thing there (would that cost more than the $500 USD we're asking for the truck? I wonder....) I thought, well. Why not take him for his word and go try out some of tis Buzzfeed action?

So, I signed up.

This should be interesting....

I did not sign up for anything that I know of. I think how it worked was someone whacked a link to one of my posts in a story the buzzfeed people were running and the rest is history so they say.

It is not happening today like it was happening yesterday.

Definitely not famous and those numbers have not held up today. Back to being the 150-200 views a day.
