Heissatopia Zeitgeist 2009

Yes, my guest, it’s that time again.

In what has now become a steady tradition (see 2007 and 2008), here’s our annual omphaloskeptic statistical zeitgeist, wherein you can see all sorts of interesting and useless data about us (and you too!). 

Enjoy the nerdiness :)

Top referring sites
Since over 50% of all visits to our blog come from referring sites, I’ve added a new section this year. “Referring site” refers to the site you used to get here (i.e. if you clicked on a link at Facebook or someone else’s blog rather than type our blog address in the browser directly). If your blog is on the list below it doesn’t necessarily mean that you personally have contributed all x% of the traffic—it just means that someone (you or one of your readers) clicked on our link from your site.

  2. I love this post and I want to hire you to do this for my blog. Are you using Google Analytics or what? I need to harness that tool's full capabilities one of these days...

  3. @Bridget - Yeah, it's a combination of Google Analytics, Google Feedburner, and Blogger itself. It doesn't actually take that long either - just lots of Excel wizardry. I can do it for you if you want :)

    @David - Yep. This is just a snapshot. All traffic stats are set in stone--you can't go back in time. Comments can, and do, change.
