Statistics for February

Here’s the visitors stats for

January 2006:
Unique visitors: 6590 (31 days)
Number of visits: 21387
Pages: 73393
Hits: 136465
Bandwidth: 1.50 GB

February 2006:
Unique visitors: 6257 (28 days => rough approximation for 31 days would be about 7000)
Number of visits: 24054
Pages: 108395
Hits: 308832
Bandwidth: 3.13 GB

I don’t give much attention to hits or bandwidth – they are explained by the increasing amount of pictures – especially the sales stats pics.

What’s worth noting is the small increasing number of unique visitors (6% more than in similar time at January) and the number of pages (over 30% increase there). In february usually gets 800-900 visits (weekends 700-800). And it’s worth noting that on Feb 24 I announced Mornings Wrath’s sales stats on 8 different forums and got 1300 visits that day and 800-900 on Saturday and on Sunday (roughly 100 more than usually). The sales stats seem to be very interesting reading so I will be presenting them in the future.

Link popularity gave me number 3259 but I don’t know how reliable that can be… about a week it was something like 5700 links pointing to my site.

It’s been nice to see people linking to the blog and it’s amazing how the word gets out there. Recently Jeff Tunnell put a post about Growing Blogosphere Around Indie Game Development and mentioned this blog. Thanks Jeff for that. There are several other bloggers (like GBGames blog) who have mentioned/commented these posts in their blogs. Thanks to all of them as well.

What matters me most is to hear you people enjoying the posts and writing so valuable comments. I don’t know how you all heard about the site, but as most of the site traffic (93% percent) comes from direct access / bookmarks I believe word-of-mouth has something to do with the visitor stats.

I keep writing here daily – hope you enjoy.
