Yes, we have an outbreak of willy waving!
Who in the British political blogosphere has the biggest!
Yes, I do says Guido!
But mine is better says Iain!
And mine more sweary says the DK!
And mine more perfectly formed says Tim Ireland!
(As boring technical background you need to understand the difference between pageviews, unique visitors and absolute unique visitors. The first is someone viewing a page. Someone might view many, or refresh to see the comments, or come back later in the day to see who has responded wittily to the "Lol, pwnd!" they left as a critique of the Schleswig Holstein Question\’s exegesis which was so painfully put together by the blogger. The second is one person or computer coming by in a day, no matter how may times they do so in a day. The third is that same one person one computer in a month, no matter how many times they do so. OK?)
From the general discussion it seems that absolute uniques is preferred as a measure of reach: how many people are you getting the message to, rather than how many people do you have as the regular reading crowd?
Iain\’s got something a little north of 50k absolute uniques.
My Google Analytics numbers for the month of March:
214,315 people visited this site 219,306 Visits 214,315 Absolute Unique Visitors 246,655 Pageviews 1.12 Average Pageviews 00:00:15 Time on Site 90.80% Bounce Rate 96.33% New Visits
Over 200,000 absolute uniques! Yes, it\’s true! Timmy has the biggest willy!
That this is on a site dedicated to celebrity fluff, that almost none of the visitors ever come back again, nor stay long enough to even read a post means nothing, nothing at all. (ie, it ain\’t this site, it\’s the old one.)
