May on this blog

Yes it's the monthly look at who's been visiting this site in the past month, courtesy of tracksy.com. Earlier stats have previously been covered for February, March and April.

First off the sites most people come from:

  1. Blogger.com (-)
  2. Google (-)
  3. Slugger O'Toole (NEW)
  4. Mars Hill (NEW)
  5. Educationet (+7)
  6. Jo Salmon (-1)
  7. Conservative Mind (-4)
  8. Iain Dale's Diary (+3)
  9. The Little Red Book of New Labour Sleaze (NEW)
  10. Take back the voice (-6)

Dropping out of the top ten altogether are Antonia Bance (at 12, down 6), Contemplative Activist (at 25, down 18), Vote 2006 Discussion Forum (which has disappeared from the listings altogether - well the local elections have now happened), A Tangled Web (also disappeared completely) and Adloyada (again completely gone).

For once Jo and her partner Antonia have not swapped order - just what is going on in the Salmon-Bance home?

Then we have the top ten search engine requests that brought people here:

  1. tim roll-pickering (+3)
  2. what does your birthday say about you (-)
  3. laura blomeley (-2)
  4. john ramsden don't mention the war (NEW)
  5. london local elections tower hamlets tim archer (NEW)
  6. hounslow conservative-control (NEW)
  7. councillors, pickering, scandal (NEW)
  8. tim roll pickering blog (NEW)
  9. millwall rotterdam loonies (NEW)
  10. barking and dagenham politic (NEW)
A bit of change from recent months, reflecting the passage of time. The searches are far more diverse now, though still many are looking for information about Laura Blomeley. The most read post this month is now Ervine in, Women out, in part because it was cited in a post on the much read Slugger O'Toole.

This time round few if any searches were for 'sutton labour manifesto', 'Kat Stark letter', 'edmonton bars without grumpy old men', 'arnold schwarzenegger in forest gate', 'stratford station protection from falling collision impact', 'labour in sutton' and 'james juggapah'.

Finally we have a list of all the cities detected that people are in (although many are listed as "other"):

LONDON, NEWPORT, OXFORD, COVENTRY, LEEDS, VANCOUVER, BROOKLYN, BELFAST, MANCHESTER, BIRMINGHAM, READING, CARDIFF, NOTTINGHAM, SHEFFIELD, NEW YORK, IPSWICH, CAMBRIDGE, BRISTOL, LEICESTER, SOUTHAMPTON, DURHAM, ATHENS, EDINBURGH, TORONTO, DUBLIN, LUTON, ST. LOUIS, FLORENCE, DULLES, WASHINGTON, ARUSHA, NORMAL, STERLING, LIVERPOOL, LANCASTER, BANGKOK, NORTHAMPTON, MANASSAS, SINGAPORE, ATLANTA, HARROW, MOUNTAIN VIEW, NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, STATEN ISLAND, WOLVERHAMPTON, REYNOLDSBURG, DUNDEE and CHESTER.

(As ever this is not always perfect - for some reason readers at both the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University are listed as being in London. Canterbury is not exactly next to London!)

Once more, thanks to everyone who's been reading and contributing to this blog!
