Milestones and Visitor Data

Some time during my move, this weblog crossed the 200,000 visit mark. It took about 23 months since I made the blog public. The second 100,000 mark took only 6 months compared to 17 months for the first.

My traffic is up after being down a bit during the summer. I also seem to have gotten a jump in traffic this week due to the election since I am getting about 200 more visitors per day than the usual.

October was the highest traffic month with more than 22,000 visitors doubling the traffic from a year ago. The bandwidth usage for my domain (most of it for the weblog) is now around 2.5 GB/month.

Top 20 search queries for October 2004:

  1. procrastination
  2. arranged marriages
  3. level 2 ultrasound
  4. pregnancy pics

  1. Assalamo alaykum w.w!

    Well … congrats then 🙂 let’s look fwd to the 500,000th hit!
    🙂

    Wassalam n allahhafiz

    [Are u calling out for some celebrations ? :)]

  2. Yup, I’m one of the visitors from China that originally got here through a Google search on Procrastination. But then, I kept reading, it’s pretty interesting 🙂

  3. Impressive… But, I see some critical gaps in your readership. The glacier bound Greenlanders, herdsmen of Mongolia and peoples of central Africa live without the wisdom of your blog :). Who will go forward with fiber optic cable in one hand and laptop in the other? Who will take the light of Procrastination to the respective cold, dusty and simmering dark places? Ha!

  4. Asma: There might be celebrations. Are you willing to visit Atlanta if there are?

    Emile: Thank you amnd keep reading.

    Moiz: Thanks.

    Captain: I must conquer the digital divide.

  5. Congrats.

    Saw your site for the first time in May or June, 2004. Since then I visit it almost daily. I’m Indian.

    Have accessed this site from New Delhi, Chennai (Tamil Nadu), Pune(Maharashtra) and Jhunjhunu (Rajasthan) 🙂

  6. keep up the good work! congrats!
    Why don’t you have any readers from N.Korea and E.Timor?
    By the way, I have had visitors from all central Asian countries and from Caucas. :~&

  7. kianoush: I haven’t had any readers from East Timor, but if you are talking about that large half of an island north of Australia, that’s Papua New Guinea.

    3 new countries in Nov 2004: Albania, Kuwait, Papua New Guinea. The total is now 143.
