Website statistics

Northern lights 2As this year is close to ending, I thought I’d revisit our website statistics. The website has been running now for just over six months on the WordPress platform and our visitor numbers look good. 

There have been close to 340,000 visits to the site during the six months, which have resulted in almost one million page views and six million hits. Our unique visitor numbers are approaching 160,000. In December, we have been averaging 1,600 unique visitors a day.

The countries that provide the most visitors are the USA (39% approx), Australia (11%), China (10%), UK (5%), Canada, France, Ukraine, Germany, Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia.

More relections on our website statistics

rsz_img_4834Strangely enough (for me), I’ve not looked at the website statistics on the server until yesterday, relying entirely on WordPress statistics.

As I said in my last blog, I’m delighted to see how much the server reveals the website has been visited  since we launched in June. [I don’t have an explanation for the differences I see between the server and WordPress statistics, although I am told the former are more reliable]. So here is some more information (robot visits have been excluded):

Since June, we have had 132,300 unique visitors who have generated 278,500 visits. There have been 827,000 page views and 4.9 million hits (equivalent to 10 million a year).

In terms of countries, the most visits come from the USA (38.3% of audience), Australia (12.2%), China (12.2%), UK (4.8%) and France (4.0%). This distribution is markedly different to my former website Wired In To Recovery, which had an audience predominantly (over 50%) from the UK.

Pleasing viewer statistics on Recovery Stories

Unknown-1I thought I would update you on our website statistics. The website was launched on the WordPress platform in June and readership gradually increased over the next months.

In October, Recovery Stories had over 44,300 visits from 13,570 unique visitors, which were pleasing numbers. In November, something special happened – one of the blogs went viral. Numbers overall increased to 113,00 visits from 66,500 unique visitors.

I don’t like using ‘hits’, but as so many people use this measure I’ll mention our numbers. Our hits increased from 330,000 in October to 2.9 million in November, or almost 100,000 hits per day.

Introduction to our Articles and Videos sections

IMG_1601In one of my blogs today, I referred to an article I wrote – on Patrick Biernacki’s research – from the Articles section of the website. I have written a number of articles on addiction recovery and related issues in the past and will load more of these articles up on the website as I have time.    

I’ll also be writing new articles and hopefully will have other writers contribute over time. For now, you can see what I hope you agree is an interesting selection of initial articles.
