Visitor statistics

For those intrigued to know who is visiting this site, how they got here and which sections they look at, this is the website with the statisitics: http://www.charliegillett.com/stats/

If you scroll down, you'll find a table with the months shown in blue, hotlinked to the finer details about exactly which sections people go to.

The playlist section is in the lead this month, attracting about 31% of the vistors, this forum is next with 28%, but Alan's great gig guide is scandalously low down the list.

As Seb told us some weeks ago, we owe it Alan to make this section better known and much more widely used.

Sorry, but the gig guide isn't any good to me all the way here in Oakland, California...!
But I absolutely love your show via the internet. I'm a new listener, and I especially love the tracklistings - I look forward to really delving deep into new musical terrain.
Thanks!

not sure if I'm supposed to post in here but, in response to a thread elsewhere about how to get more visibility for the site and WM in general.

I believe Google does use a kind of 'number of refs to something = interest' calculation (check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_bomb - my fave being one from last year where if you search for Weapons of Mass Destruction you end up with a fabricated '404 error', page does not exist, a geek gag but quite a good one)

So, I notice a lot of members have www refs to their own sites - why not try to persuade them to link to Charlie's site?

Other than that I think these days you need to be the bbc or get into the Blogsphere, the world of endless egotistical rants that passes a thought virus around the internet faster than bird flu.

if I'm reading this right, in August 30%of hits were from the US - more evidence that Charlie's show would do well over here! Perhaps if PBS won't bite, an extended World Service type show on Satelite Radio!

The statistics regarding national origin of visitor are misleading, as anybody with a .com suffix - such as yahoo.com, gmail.com, hotmail.com or aol.com -- is classified as American, whereas many UK people used those email addresses.

But I am interested in doing something tailored for the USA and have had conversations with Sirius, but we haven't yet figured out a formula that will work for both of us - my time being the main problem. I am pretty stretched doing two weekly shows.
