On the first day of each month I post the statistics for my blog. The red bar indicates new visitors to the site from search engines and the like and the yellow bar indicates those of you who are returning visitors. On a month by month basis you can see after steadily increasing each month from July to December numbers seem to have leveled off at around 2000 visitors a month (Dec-Feb).

The most visited posts for the month were the ever popular Yarralumla Woolshed (May 10) Civic Brown Snake (Nov 10) Convict Floggings (July 10) Wild Dogs Roam Canberra (Feb 11) and Queen Nellie Hamilton (June 10). 

As far as the woolshed post goes it has transferred, via a link, over 500 visitors to the ACT Gov parks hire page over the past 8 months. As the common search term for arriving at the page was 'Yarralumla Woolshed Hire' a proportion of these visitors would logically have hired the venue.  Say 10% of the $500 hire fee that's $50 a booking @ say 100 bookings that's $5,000 the ACT Government owes me as spotters fees. The Paypal button on my blog will be fine thanks.

Stats for the month of February

The site has an RSS feed through Feedburner which attracts about 50 readers a day and a couple subscribe via e-mail. I am an avid twitterer with a few real followers (who I follow back), a lot of special interest tweeters I follow and I imagine 150 automated bots that pretend to be real people. If your a real person on twitter and you don't want to sell me anything you can get me @davesact.
