After six or so years since I signed up to blogger, for various reasons, I have decided to move home. The old one will stay up for a while longer – as there are still a few bits and pieces I need to fix – but then all the posts will be replaced with links to here. I tried doing this once before, about a year ago, using the “conradder” address. As it seemed like some effort I got bored and deleted the site. Now I can’t retrieve that address (hence the catchy “conradderblogsaboutnothing”). Rats!
On 9/3/14 – total general page views was 3,196. Which is impressive enough seeing I didn’t really promote it too often.
I also tried to make sense of the graph below (i..e why traffic spiked at those certain times) – there doesn’t seem to be any reason!
One of the “various reasons” was due to the “spam hits” coming my way. Sure, how else could I explain the crazy interest from Russia?!
Also getting refers from some NSFW sites added to my suspicions. It’s not fun, during your lunch break, seeing a refer, thinking “oh, what’s this?” and getting a Russian porno site with a view of a lady’s groin!
Though getting hits from around the world was pretty cool.
Broken down to views on individual posts was…..
i.e. mainly the F1 themed posts. That would make sense as, if I were ever to “promote” a post (i.e. tweet link), it would only ever be to F1 sites.
Aye – I plan to do this a bit more. Who knows, maybe buy a domain if I’m feeling flush or get bored of it and not post anything for ages. We’ll see.
