I’m pleased to announce that my blog (and not me!! :P) has received 10,000 hits till date. I started blogging seriously only in September sometime. So I guess I’m doing pretty okay. I would like to share some important stats though 🙂 My top posts stats page looks like this-
Well, the Bollywood Posts dominate the Stats Page (as expected). Obviously, we sleep, drink and eat Bollywood. What would we do without SRK and his sexy grooves! Every other topic is irrelevant (as substianted by the meagre hits received by those posts elucidating them).
I’m pretty happy because my blog (yes, not me!) has received hits from many different countries. Though, I wouldnt mind (I mean, my blog) some from Greenland too. It will be encouraging to know that people in that part of the world use internet too.
Moving onto more important things, take a look at this graph (ofcourse, what else did you expect? I dont have a pic of Mallika Sherawat here…sorry!!)
This is the pie chart of the OS used by people who visited my blog. I got the data from Sitemeter. Windows XP dominates the OS market.. there is nothing surprising about this I think. Linux is about 6%, which I guess is not too bad. Mac OS X comes in at 3%.
Next, this is the distribution of the Browser share:
Paul Thurrott has something interesting to say about the IE 7 and Firefox browser share:
According to analysts at Web metrics firm OneStat, IE picked up 2.8 percent of the Web-browser market share between July and September 2006, and Firefox’s market share dropped 1.4 percent during the same period. IE had never really lost a huge amount of market share to Firefox, but Firefox had been picking up market share at IE’s expense fairly consistently for about a year and a half. OneStat said that IE currently controls about 85.9 percent of the overall browser market, compared with about 11.5 percent for Firefox.
However, this link presents a conflicting view:
Firefox accounted for 12.5 percent of September’s global browser market, said Aliso Viejo, Calif.’s Net Applications. That’s an increase from August’s 11.8 percent, which was up from the 11.3 percent in July. Internet Explorer’s share slipped to 82.1 percent in September, down from August’s 83 percent.
Also making gains was Apple Computer’s Safari browser, which by the end of September was up from 3.2 percent to 3.5 percent. Safari’s September numbers were its highest since April.
“Internet Explorer continues to lose market share with Firefox and Safari showing a steady increase over the past 9 months,” said Net Applications in a statement”.
I really dont want to draw any conclusion from this data due to the following reasons:
1. My observations are based only on my blog stats.
2. I havent seen the behavior of of visitors of other blogs.
3. We need to observe a broad range of samples before arriving at any conclusion.
