I decided I should set up a stats program and see who's visiting this web site, what's being read, stuff like that. Granted, one day's worth of stats are not much to go on, but there are some interesting things that came out of the first day or so of statistics gathering.

First is the search phrases that people typed into their favorite search engine (Google is by far the most common one used to link to my site in the stats) and then clicked through to find this site:

created with microsoft office onenote 28 63.6 %
greg hughes 4 9 %
xml office 2003 bill coan 2 4.5 %
word documents have no teeth 1 2.2 %
twins portland oregon 1 2.2 %
how did the united states get oregon 1 2.2 %
spinning tires ice hill blog 1 2.2 %
onenote tab .net control 1 2.2 %
acer c300 problems 1 2.2 %
houses sold on deer island oregon 1 2.2 %
onenote blog 1 2.2 %
ie toolbar visual studio 1 2.2 %
open in new window ms04-004 1 2.2 %

“twins portland oregon????” Hmmmmmm.... ;-)

Keywords list:

office 30 14.8 %
onenote 30 14.8 %
with 28 13.8 %
microsoft 28 13.8 %
created 28 13.8 %
greg 4 1.9 %
hughes 4 1.9 %
oregon 3 1.4 %
xml 2 0.9 %
coan 2 0.9 %
blog 2 0.9 %
bill 2 0.9 %
2003 2 0.9 %

Fascinating stuff, really. Other interesting figures that amaze me (not):

  • 14% of the people who viewed the site added the page to their favorites (I have no idea how this gets logged, but I guess it does). 
  • I'm indexed by a whole bunch of search engines - many of which I never heard of.
  • A lot of people who view my site content do so via the RSS feed. Only one or two people appear to be syndicating the site via the Atom feed.
  • My OneNote blogging entries are popular, and people are also clicking on the OneNote .one and .wma audio files.
  • I am nowhere close to reaching my bandwidth usage limit, so if you need a site hosted and you happen to know me personally, feel free to ask - I have a reseller account and so far I don't charge my friends. :-) Oh, and you can use your own domain name or piggyback on one of several I have registered. And if you want to register one, you can do so here for only $10, and the customer service is at least ten times better than [cough cough] Verisign/Netsol [cough hack cough].
