I finally have some time to review my WordPress readership statistics for March 2017. So, thank you and good day.
There were 2,085 page views in March, says WordPress’s statistics page. That’s gratifyingly large, above February’s 1,837 and close to January’s 2,340. This came from 1,308 unique visitors in March, up from 1,093 in February and down slightly from January’s 1,361. That’s pretty close to the Apartment 3-Gocalypse highs, back in October and November in 2015.
This dovetails nicely with my transition to being a blog that updates people on the story comics, plus some other stuff the rest of the week. Exaggeration? Here’s the five most popular posts for March:
- What’s Going On With Rex Morgan, M.D.?
- What’s Going On With Judge Parker?
- Why Does Mary Worth Look Different?
- Oh Yeah, One Thing I Didn’t Understand About Rex Morgan
- Has the comic strip _Momma_ come to an end?
I’m doing my very best not to be hurt that my original-compositions aren’t more liked. Well, I’m honestly not hurt, and one of my long-form Friday pieces is in the top ten, and at least I’m relieving people’s anxieties by more or less knowing what Rex Morgan, M.D. is up to.
So here’s the report on the number of views per country for March:
|Hong Kong SAR China||9|
|United Arab Emirates||5|
|Bosnia and Herzegovina||1|
|Trinidad and Tobago||1|
None of the single-reader countries were single-reader last month, which is I think the first time I’ve had a complete turnover like that. I make that out to be 14 single-reader countries, down from February’s 22 but matching January’s 14. That’s 55 countries represented altogether, down from February’s 61, but up from January’s 48. What does that signify? I do not know, but what the heck. It’s a number, I can report it.
Midnight remains the most popular hour for readership here, with 15 percent of page views coming in the hour after stuff gets posted. For March Wednesday was the most popular reading day, with 16 percent of page views then. This breaks the streak Tuesday was having. February saw Tuesday getting 19 percent of page views, and in January Tuesday got 18 percent of page views. Since one-seventh is just over 14 percent, I think that’s indicating no weekday’s really more popular than any other around here.
I am getting some more fun search terms bringing people here. Among them:
- what does funky winkerbean mean
- judge parker getting weird
- how many fleischer cartoons used 3d sets?
- is sally forth hyphenated
- has mary worth had plastic surgery
I’m curious how many 3-D sets the Fleischers did use in their cartoons. Funky Winkerbean just means for us all to feel worse about everything.
