November on this blog

Yes it's that time of the month again, time for a look at the stats for this blog. Once more earlier stats can be found at the pages for February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September and October.

First off the sites most people come from:

  1. GuardianUnlimitedBlogs (NEW)
  2. Google (-1)
  3. Mars Hill (-1)
  4. Blogger.com (+1)
  5. Educationet Messageboard (RE-ENTRY)
  6. Jo Salmon (-2)
  7. CartoonChurch.com (NEW)
  8. Cllr Iain Lindley's Diary (-5)
  9. Cally's Kitchen (-1)
  10. Wikipedia (NEW)
Dropping out of the top ten are Ulster Young Unionist Council (at 12, down 6), Antonia Bance (at 13, down 4), Mark Clarke: Conservative Future Chairman (at 16, down 9) and Iain Dale's Diary (at 28, down 18). Compared to last month it's been quite a shake-up. No less than three of the new/re-entry sites have been linking direct to my post about the Christian Union/Students' Union controversies, which as you might guess has also been the single most read individual page on the site. (However I don't normally provide stats for individual page views because many people read the posts either on the front page or through Facebook.)

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

  1. what does your birthday say about you (-)
  2. tim roll-pickering (-)
  3. laura blomeley (-)
  4. 'john nye' radley (NEWish - he was somewhere at the bottom last time)
  5. mp before 1945 election, john profumo (NEW)
  6. london borough of sutton postcode change (NEW)
  7. cornwallis building collapse (NEW)
  8. millwall loonies rotterdam (RE-ENTRY)
  9. kennedy assassination and "caroline hunt" (RE-ENTRY)
  10. kish queen mary college (NEW)
As ever a mixture of brand new terms and some ongoing ones. Not many outright strange terms amongst the others though - only this raised an eyebrow:

Don't count on it!

Finally as ever we have a list of all the cities detected that people are in):

ABERDEEN, ALICE SPRINGS, BASILDON, BELFAST, BIRMINGHAM, BOURNEMOUTH, BRIGHTON, BRISTOL, BROOKLYN, BRUSSELS, CALGARY, CAMBRIDGE, CARDIFF, CHATTANOOGA, CHICAGO, COUDERSPORT, DERBY, DORTMUND, DULLES, DURHAM, EDINBURGH, EXETER, GLASGOW, KINGSTON UPON HULL, LEEDS, LIVERPOOL, LONDON, LOVELAND, LUTON, MALAGA, MANASSAS, MANCHESTER, MANSFIELD, MIDDLESBROUGH, NEW YORK, NORWICH, NOTTINGHAM, OXFORD, PARAMUS, READING, ROTTERDAM, SHEFFIELD, SOUTHAMPTON, SUTTON, TORONTO, TROY, VANCOUVER, WASHINGTON and "others".

Thank you all for reading!

Interesting... what site do you use for your stats? I use statcounter.com but the free version only lets me get stats from the last 100 visitors.

I use Tracksy.com. (If the link doesn't work it's at http://tracksy.com/ ) It's up to 25000 visits a month.
