Final Word On Web Site Traffic, Maybe

I believe I promised in an earlier post that I would not say anything else about the problem I am having in determining exactly what the traffic is on this web site. If I did, then I am going to have to apologize because I have some new figures which gives me a more accurate measurement of the number of viewers we have.

Based on numbers supplied by the server it would appear that we are getting 5 times the number of visits than show automatically on the counter. My web master has tried to explain again why the counter doesn't move when someone visits but again I fail to understand it.

So in the future I am going to adjust the counter at the end of each month. Nothing will be done to prevent the counter from registering as it has in the past but the server's figures for the month will be added to the numbers for the first of the month and the traffic recorded by the counter will be erased.

You might be interested in what the server reports we have had for the past few months rounded down to the nearest even hundred.

November '02.............3500

December '02.............3500

January '03.............4600

February '03.............4500

March '03.............5700

April '03.............5600

May '03..............3900

I fully expect the numbers to go down in the "off season." If you want to give me a belated birthday present, then click on the site twice each visit during this period and let's see what happens. We put up a new article each Sunday unless circumstances prevent us from doing so.
