This will probably be the last post of 2004, so I figured that I would just give out a bunch of stats on where AFdN is and where it’s going. First off, there where at least 5804 unique vistors for 2004. With 12918 visits, that comes out to 2.22 visits per unique visitor. All in all, 97,889 pages were server up (7.57 pages/visit) with 576,346 hits (44.61 hits/visit). That amounts to 22.76 gigabytes of bandwidth (1,847.45 KB/visit). There was also an additional 6.64 GB of bandwidth consumed by traffic generated by robots, worms, or replies with special HTTP status codes. The best month in terms of bandwidth was January with 4.37 GB (due probably to some videos I put up). The worst month was October with a mere 694.95 MB (AFdN was offline for about a week while I as messing with the new static IP address). The top robot was MSNBot. The top worm was part of the Nima family of worms (which didn’t cause any ill effects because I use Apache, a non-Microsoft product). The average visit was 468 seconds. The most requested file type was jpg files with 19.8% of the hit requests and 13.6% of the bandwidth.Microsoft Windows XP was the most used operating system with 57.2% and 62.2% of vistors used Internet Explorer 6.0. Google sent 54.7% of the traffic from search engines. http://seablogs.hellbent.org sent 8% of visitors from external pages. "prom pictures" accounted for 5.8% of all keyphrase searches.
So, thanks for making this year such a great year. I’m sure I’ve added at least a gig of content since the begining of the year (mostly pictures, 2720 just in the gallery). I wish everyone a prosperous New Year. Look for my first ever New Years letter coming to AFdN within the next week or so!0
