2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 60,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

  1. Are we really supposed to believe that WordPress don’t know the difference between page views and unique visitors? It seems unlikely that 60,000 different people have viewed this blog, which is what they seems to be implying by their concert hall analogy!

    Oi! Makes it sound better…

    It’s only recently they’ve actually started to differentiate views from unique visitors on the stats they provide though I guess they’ve known for sometime!

  4. Even ‘unique visitors’ tends to be an overestimate as they do it using cookies, which of course can be deleted between visits, or the same person can view the page on several different devices, etc.
