Time again for the monthly look at who's been visiting this blog. For those who wish to see stats for earlier months you can now click on one of the labels at the end of this post. Comparisons are with the stats for December.

First off the sites most people come from:

Dropping out of the top ten are Yahoo (at 11, down 2), Cllr Iain Lindley's Diary (at 19, down 9), Chris Paul: Labour of Love (at 23, down 16) and Conservative Mind (disappearing altogether).

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

What about MSN's search do they provide you with anything? I am often provided with views from small search engines.

I consolidate the separate search engine results as otherwise it gets meaningless - a lot of the Google hits are spread across the various different national versions. But in terms of search engines used, the raw stats are:

Name Page Views Visitors
Google 97% (465) 97% (439)
Yahoo 2% (10) 2% (10)
MSN 1% (3) 0% (2)
Ask 0% (1) 0% (1)
