5 Years of Blogging

It has been five years since I started blogging. Over time, my blogging has become more sporadic, but I plan to continue. So today here are some statistics about my weblog.

It was 5 years ago today that I made my first post on my blog which was then on Blogger. This post today is the 999th one I have made here and there have been 6,678 comments on these posts.

Number of Posts Every Year

According to Sitemeter, there have been about 950,000 visits and 1,410,000 page views of my weblog.

Since I have had a Google Analytics account since April 2006, I have collected some decent statistics pertaining to my weblog. Here are some of them (I am using the whole period from April 2006 to now for these stats).

The web pages on my site that have gotten the most page views since April 2006 are as follows:

  1. Week 20: Boy or Girl
  2. Arranged Marriage
  3. Women, Gays, Sex, Islam
  4. Blog main page
  5. Urdu/اردو
  6. Moth Smoke
  7. Marriage: Between Cousins
  8. My Home Page
  9. Commenters Looking for Marriage
  10. Week 21: Level 2 Diagnostic Ultrasound

So it seems like category and monthly archives do not get many visits while most visitors coming from search engines land straight on an individual post page.

The percentage of visitors to my weblog who use different web browsers is as follows:

Internet Explorer 80.0%
Firefox 15.4%
Safari 2.3%
Opera 1.2%

The most popular search terms for getting to my blog are (in no particular order, since I combined similar queries):

  • urdu sex stories
  • arranged marriages
  • level 2 ultrasound
  • procrastination
  • firefox sucks
  • harun yahya
  • am i having a boy or girl
  • gays sex
  • crvo
  • asylum in canada

This list mostly disappointed me.

The top 10 countries from which my blog received visits are:

  1. United States
  2. Pakistan
  3. United Kingdom
  4. Canada
  5. India
  6. Australia
  7. Iran
  8. United Arab Emirates
  9. Saudi Arabia
  10. Germany

Here is a world map with the countries I have had visitors from shown in red.

  1. WOW – a hearty congrats for the 5th year of blogging – impressive work, but you need to ‘up’ that post count seems to be on a decline conisdering the ~300 / ~350 post years you had at the start.

    Anyway – well done

  2. Congrats, dude. You were one of the first blogs I started reading when I started CM. kudos.

  3. Hearty congratulations on your blog’s becoming real school-going age (5 yrs). Rest later. I have just returned from Atwaar Bazaar.

  4. A new thing draws much more attention than the same having become a routine. Also at later stage purposeful blogging demands time. Then there is the environment and other more important needs that start consuming time and one justifiably can not devote more time to blogging. These are the reasons for decline in the blogging pattern.

  5. Wow, 5 years of Blogging but you should have mentioned “Expert and unique blogging” cos urs and a few other blogs owned by Pakistanis are what i really enjoy reading… anyways nice stats you got btw. only one or two countries in Africa couldnt reach ur blog… the rest whole world did;)

    Best of luck in future…

  6. Happy Birthday 🙂

    Yours was definitely one of the very few blogs I started reading and then started my own. Interesting how fewer blogs were then and how many now …!

    Thumbs Up … Keep rocking :>

  7. Are you making money with Google Ads. Please advise how its going. I have some URLs of my own and would like to get an idea of how much one can make, before I spend precious time into it.
