Charting My Traffic – December 2008

It seems ironic that I appear to post more often about how much traffic this blog is getting than about much else. However, it was a promise I made to myself back when I started, so I’ve kept it up. Here goes for December:

Popularity Indicators
Alexa: 752,548 (up from 816,630)
Google PR: 3 (increased from 2)
Technorati Authority: 9 (down from 10), Fans 1
RSS Subscribers: 18 (up from 14)

The Golden Rule
December 2008 Absolute Unique Visitors: 1044 (Nov. was 1029)
Pageviews: 1293 (1.24 per visit)

Inbound Links
Google: 14 (up from 12)
Yahoo: 597 (down from
742 last month)

Okay, so what to make of this? Well, page rank is up a bit, which is cool. RSS is also up a bit, percentage wise, which is cool. Regarding the links, I’ve started noticing that what they catch varies on a daily basis. On top of that, if I’ve got a link coming from a particular blog from a comment I’ve made, and they’ve got a plugin that displays recent comments on all pages of the blog, within a couple days I could shoot up dozens of links, only to have them drop off once the comment isn’t current anymore.
