Peter Files Factoids


Quick RSS Subscription Links
Some current statistics about the Peter Files Blog and its Readers:

About one in 5 readers access the Peter Files Blog from a computer. This would tend to understate Mac ownership, because it is likely that at least some readers access this blog from work which is less likely to be Mac-friendly. This is especially true because the Peter Files Blog is a safe for work humor source and so can be viewed from work.

Near all other users are using Windows operating systems, though on a day to day basis, Linex and other users can be as high as 10 percent. Nearly all Windows users are using XP, though 2000, Millenium, and Server 2003 are used as well.

Blog visitors are most likely to arrive here from a search engine, bringing them to a page other than our home page which tends to feature 7 days of posts. Those who move on to our home page get so much to read on that second click that it is unusual for the average pages per visitor to exceed 2. However, the to achieve an average of 2 pages per reader, some are reading rather more.

Overall, while our blog visits are nearing 31,000, our pages viewed exceed 45,000, suggesting that the overall average is just under 1.5 pages viewed per person.

Since we started in February of 2005, 430 posts have been published on just about every subject under the sun. Interestingly, some of the same posts continue to draw the largest number of hits.

A post with a well-popularized version of a spoof on the Abbot and Costello skit known as "Who's on First" starring George Bush and Condaleeza Rice playing upon the name of Chinese Premier Hu, called "Hu's on First" gets one or more hits almost daily. The post has a link to an audio clip of the original Abbot and Costello Routine.

Another post that gets as many as three or four visits a day is one alleging that the Easter Bunny was detained for alleged acts of terrorism. Sorry, you are going to have to read that one yourself to find out why.

Then there is the Man Bites Shark post about a guy who accidentally pulled in a 700 lb shark, complete with pictures. People sure do love those shark pictures, there is another post with one somewhere in the 400 and it draws regular new readers too.

After that it's a mixture, and on any given day I am surprised about what a mixture it is. Often someone has come in through an RSS Feed direct to a recent post. That has increased not what there is an RSS subscribe button on every post. Subscribing to this blog with the RSS link in your browser bookmarks toolbar is a great way to check the headlines here regularly and pop in if something looks good.

I've gone on and on about international representation in the past. I am always surprised that there is always someone from Austrailia, Asia, the Pacific Islands, India, the Middle East and Europe Checking in. Perhaps it is largely people in the United States armed forces or Embassy staffs checking in on blogs from home, but that is not the feeling I get from those comments I check out.

I hope you found this interesting. If nothing else, you have learned that you can use the blue search box to search this blog for keywords you like for example: Best Of, Bush, Blondes, Funny Videos, Jokes, Parenthood, TV, Easter, Irish, Bunnies, Math, Da Bears, American Idol, God, etc.

Well, that's it for this post. Y'all come back now, hear?
