Website Statistics - Updated January 2, 2017  
   

January 2, 2017 . The web hosting service that helped get this website started decided to exit the server hosting business 6 months agoo and we are now on a new host server. There's been some hiccups in the transfer process and most seem to be resolved.

Our website activity has been monitered by a statistical system called Google Analytics. Your webmaster selected some parameters of interest and as I got better at understanding them, and their implications, I posted the results up here. Right now, we know something about where we have been, we know where we are, and now don't have a clue about where we are going.

It seems that our meteoric rise in the early years was tempered in 2014. Why? no clue. Maybe we have reached the population with potential interest. Anyway, we are still getting over 25,000 visits looking at over 4 pages a visit, which is pretty good. We might need a couple of circumnavigations to help keep readership interest high.

I was told by our old web hosting service that, given the highly focused subject matter, and the size of the Dolphin 24 community, we have a lot of activity, and we were then the largest website they hosted in terms of pages of content. For now, these are raw, page views/visitor, numbers without a serious attempt to analyze.

This website has over 32 GB of data (1 gigabyte of data = approx 1 billion bites), contained in 9,500 files.

The following are computer generated numbers - an electronic hiccup somewhere is always possible. I have dropped the (000,000) in the interest of brevity :-)

A couple of definitions

> Unique visiters - Unique Visitors is the number of unduplicated (counted only once) visitors to the website over the course of the specified time period.

> Bounce Rate - the percentage of single-page visits (ie visits in which the person left the site from the entrance page without interacting with other pages on the websitepage) - in our case many readers check the What's New page, and not finding anything new since their last visit, or anything new of interest, leave the website.

More work to be done here.....
