Charting My Traffic

I’ve decided that since this blog is essentially starting out at Ground Zero, this is a perfect time to implement something to track the amount of traffic I manage to generate. My only pledge related to this is I will not spend money to promote this blog – all traffic that comes here will be 100% free.

As of today, March 20th, 2008 here are a few indicators I’ll be posting on a monthly basis:

Popularity Indicators
Alexa: 13,952,743
Google PR: 0
Technorati Authority: 0
RSS Subscribers: 0

The Golden Rule
Feb 2008 Visitors: 1 (pretty stellar eh?)

I’m using Google Analytics (which I’m not 100% certain is setup properly with WordPress – need to test that) for my traffic stats. I’ve filtered out my own IP so I won’t be artificially inflating my traffic. What you see here pure and simple is the number of people that come here. One day if this goes anywhere maybe I’ll come up with a fancy graphic or something. Wouldn’t that be cool.

Are there any other indicator stats you might recommend?

    You may want to take a look at Statcounter http://www.statcounter.com/ its another free traffic stats site. I use both Google & Statcounter.

    Thanks for the tip – I guess using two counters is a guaranteed way to make sure you’re actually tracking all the traffic. Sometimes I wonder about Google…
