Statistics

Postby Niner Alpha » Wed Nov 08, 2006 8:13 pm

Just in case you are wondering if anybody ever looks at this site. I took a picture of the stats screen. Click on the picture to have a better chance of reading it. Note the idividual "unique" visiters. Lots are just crusing for a place to place a viagra advertisement.....but still interesting.

Site Hits

Postby Delta75 » Thu Nov 09, 2006 8:15 am

Looking good....I know that the site doesn't get as many inputs as you would like.....but, most other web sites don't get many either.

At least this shows that people know that your web site is here...and...in time, maybe they will post.

Thanks for continuing to maintain this wonderful site.

Thanks Jerry

I think an average of just over 2000 visits a month from an average of over 850 different visiters a month is pretty good for a site with as narrow a focus as this one.

Much of the activity centers around the photo album. This site has to be one of the few on the internet that has collected such a Vietnam album from guys who have sent them in. And all of them are forwarded to the National Infantry Museum for posterity.

Photo Albums

Postby Delta75 » Thu Nov 09, 2006 11:38 am

The photo album format is outstanding. I was shocked at the number of "views" that I am seeing.

BTW: My wife has been in VN for 2 1/2 months preparing a wedding for one of her sons. (I will be going Nov20 -Dec8). While there a newspaper crew of 8 people drove from Saigon to Vinh Kim to interview her about our story. (I didn't know that our story had reached Saigon). She saw them coming down the trail and thought that they were coming to ask her for money....since she did not know any of the people. So.....she hid in the bathroom, and told her son to tell them that she had gone to the market. Once she heard them talking, she knew what they wanted...but to keep from losing face, she could not come out. So.....her son had to tell them our story. Luckily, no one had to go to the bathroom. :)

Album Views

Postby Delta75 » Thu Nov 09, 2006 2:12 pm

Niner,

How do I interpret the "views" on the photo albums?

I see that the major "albums" have had 12,563 "views", and the "sub-albums" have had 31,943 "views". These would "total" 44,506 "views".

How many "Views" have the albums really had? 12,563? 31,943? 44,506? Hopefully the answer is the larger of the numbers.

I've sent out for some expert help

I emailed my son your question. He can interpret these statistical things better than me. Check back.

Album Counts

Postby JasonStewart » Thu Nov 09, 2006 3:47 pm

The counts are per-album, so it's entirely possible for a sub-album to have more hits than its parent (from people forwarding direct links to the sub-albums instead of navigating through the entire hierarchy).

The counts in the gallery do not omit re-visits from the tally. The gallery software, as nice as it is, isn't smart enough to distinguish a first-time visit from a re-visit, so if the same user opens the picture four times, the view count for that picture will increase by four even though only one person viewed it.

However, the AWStats program which compiles stats for the entire website (stats at the beggining of this thread) is much smarter, and in most cases it can distinguish hits (the number of times a particular file is requested) from distinct viewers.

Number of unique hits grows

Postby Niner Alpha » Wed May 02, 2007 11:10 pm

We are not growing by leaps and bounds, but still going in the right direction.

We have broken the 1000 mark for "unique" hits a month.
