Here is a chart I created from the data available in the inbuilt stat counter in wordpress.

Actually I have installed a Flagship counter [paid service] which gives some more data. But its showing differently than inbuilt counter. One catch Flagship does not say how it counts spam which even when added from inbuilt counter it looks like wordpress counter is inefficient compared to Flagship because its losing some data? Note: wordpress stops little below 50% ~45% of total hits as spam hits. With Flagship hits I have defined a very useful parameter.

view index = counted page views / counted new visitors“. Thus view index = number of pages read by the new visitor on an average.

Here is data from inbuilt counter over 18 months.

Various Musings statistics, ZERO marketing , tot=6208 hits, 18 months, 345 hits a month w/o spams, 12 hits a day

xample of FLAGSHIP from last week [counter installed on feb-11]. You can see view index jumped from 1 or 2 to 8.5. Now every new visitor is reading 8.5 pages on an average. Also see a record page view of 169. This is from this web-site, iphmdashf.org. This website in the lat 6 days has gotten 48 ne visitors [India] 26 [US, 10 Calif, 4 Texas, rest-rest] 10 [France]  4 [UK] 20 [rest]
