User Stats on this Blog

Sometime in early February, I installed tracking software on this blog. Before, I had no way to guess how many people were using it and using it on a regular basis. I did know that my message was getting out there, but had no idea to what extent. The above table shows that since early February, there have been 1506 "unique" visits to this blog - people entering the site through a specific computer. This probably is an over-estimate of the total people using the site as IPs can be dynamic and people access the site from more than one computer. Of those unique visits, most people (58%) return every day or so to check it for new material and to read the latest entry.

This information is portrayed graphically below:
The chart below indicates that most visitors to the site stay for approximately 1 to 5 minutes:

Another interesting statistic is that around 800 come to the site from no other page on the Internet. This means that number of people likely have this blog saved in their "Favorites".

Just thought you would be interested in how this site is being used. I hope that you find the information here useful and that you keep coming back. It represents my effort to get the word out on important matters happening in the City of Lake Worth.

Thanks for visiting!
