Here it is again…the post no one but I and a few other people in the known universe care about…the web stats post! Get all the numeric goodness below the fold!

Percent change in ( ) is from December.  Percent change in [ ] is from January 2008.

Page Views: 22,951 (+12.3%) [+228.3%]

Page Views/day: 740.4 (+12.3%) [+228.3%]
AUV/day: 355.2 (+29.2%) [+276.7%]

Despite going on a rather long hiatus over last fall – and even for a couple weeks in January – January ended up being my best month yet, seeing an all time high in monthly visits and AUVs (with the first time over 10,000 AUVs), and a close 2nd behind July 2008 for Page Views.  I’m also getting about 3 times as much traffic this January as I was in January of last year.

Now, onto more specific data:

  5. January 8 (559)

I had 5 days all last year which got over 600 visits and I already have 3 in the month of January.  December 31st – January 2nd may very well be my busiest 3 days on record, with a total of 1,878 visitors over those 3 days.
