Statistics five ways.


In the last two months I’ve installed Google site kit and worked on improving SEO. I’ve also reinstalled a wordpress counter — not the usual one in jetpack, but an analogue. As you can see the sampling rate is quite variable, with one outlier — even with spiders switched off.

The old blog had about 5K hits a month, so I think after 10 months we have about a fifth of the traffic. But the old blog automatically posted on facebook and twitter, platforms that are both high risk.
