    We have had an enormous jump in our viewership and number of visitors in the past few days. In the past 7 days, our viewership exceeded 50,000 every day, breaking 70,000 for the first time in our history. The number of daily visitors likewise broke the 2000 barrier for the first time on Monday and Tuesday. We had over 400 postings for the first time yesterday.

    In the last week of December 2003, we were averaging 54871 page views, 309 posts, and 1605 visitors per day, high numbers considering that it is the week between Christmas and New Years. In the previous week, traffic was also high with 50,009 views, 314 posts, and 1466 visitors per day, considering that it was Christmas.

    In the last 12 months, we have averaged 28,266 views, 206 posts, and 1249 visitors per day. This compares with 12,429 views, 154 posts, and 1040 visitors per day. In short, every year, we have been doubling our viewship, number of visitors, and number of posts.

          On Monday, we broke 85,000 page views for the first time and had 445 posts (an all-time high), as well as 2019 visitors. What was surprising was the jump in Mb downloaded. We exceeded a gigabyte for the first time. I wonder whether that is related to the butt-wagging post. Wise.

                Dr. Young:

                Could you graph these data point and perhaps superimpose a moving average on the pertinint ones.

                Think it would show the growth with much more impact than tab data.

                    Note that there may be slight discrepancies in the page view counts. I believe that the ones from the CareCure report represent actual pageviews while the ones cited in the statistics above include pageviews and emails. By the way, Thursday 1/15/04 number of 487 postings again broke the record. Wise.

                        Chart of Page Views and Visitors per day (with log trends), and Members replacing listing. There was an unexplained blip around the second week of January. The number of members is continuing to climb at 5-10 new registrations per day.

                          I have replaced the log trends with seven-day moving averages. This is because we always have a dip in the traffic during the weekends.

                          The chart shows a remarkable doubling of the traffic in terms of views per day and posts per day. The number of visitors went up by about 30%. The number of members now exceeds 5500.

                            This idea might not be well received. However, with this high number of visits it would be a good idea to make some profit by selling some sort of propaganda space on the site, and use the income to finance medical research or other ideas. On the other hand I am ignorant about Rutgers regulations, and I must accept that the university was of a great help by allowing this SCI forum to exist.
