Web hits and most popular pages

Home : Web site : Web hits


Here is a summary of what people have been reading on my Web site, exclusive of robots and hits from within our home network.

Most popular pages for the last six months of 2008

This is a big drop from the last time I updated this, more than three years ago. I'm guessing that I don't score so well on the search engines these days.

Most popular pages in June 2004

[Note: On 20 June, my old server quit (Aolserver on SuSE 8.1), and was replaced with a new system (Apache 2 on SuSE 9.0). The log format is the same, and the outage was not long, so it shouldn't have had a measurable effect on the server traffic. Some pages were missing for a while (thanks to the readers who pointed out the omissions!), but of these, only http://www.rgrjr.com/linux/backup.pl.html had ever been in the top 10. -- rgr, 1-Aug-04.]

Most popular pages in April 2004

[The proportional drop in hits with respect to the previous three months is because the server was down for 9 days while I was on vacation. Curiously, the hits for the most popular pages dropped by nearly half, more than the 30% outage would suggest, while the hits for some of the less popular pages dropped by smaller amounts. -- rgr, 2-May-04.]

[This is not quite complete, because I switched from using Squid as a proxy/redirector back to hitching AOLserver directly to the network on 4 May. This is the latter 90% of the month; it seemed better to avoid mixing two the two types of log data than to go for the whole month. -- rgr, 12-Aug-03.]
