2012 Annual Blog Statistics

These are some stats from Google Analytics, the figures from 2011 are in brackets.

Overall in 2012 there were about 2,500 fewer visits, from 1,900 fewer visitors than in 2011. This is also off the back of a similar decline in the year before. However, during the last two years there has been a large reduction in the quantity of posts to the site.

Total

  • Unique Visitors: 13,371 (15,313)

New Zealand has gone from the top source of visitors to third position, swapping places with Australia. 65.3% of all visits came from Aus/USA/NZ/UK up from the 57.3% in previous years. This is most likely representative of less posts on general computing topics and more on topics of interest directly to my friends.

No real changes in the operating system stats, linux remains in second but almost halves it visitors – most likely due to fewer technical posts about how to fix things. iOS jumps into the stats where it wasn’t represented at all last year, however as noted then I wasn’t correctly identifying mobile devices.
