Hitting six figures

hanukkah-image.jpg

As we wish a happy Hanukkah to our readers, I’m pleased to notice that the stats counter has now passed 100,000 hits since moving to WordPress back in April. What’s more, November saw a high of 28,097 hits, up from 25,445 in October. It’s a long way from the dizzy heights of Socialist Unity, but not bad going for an esoteric little blog like this.

Huzzah!

Rud eile: I haven’t done Search of the Week for a while, just because the more bizarre searches seem to have dried up for some reason. I am however tickled to see a search for Oliver Kamm is an odious little man – more like this please.

    What’s your secret? I’m lucky if I get 500 hits a week! lol

    I wish I knew, then I could do more of it. Actually, you have the Tombola to thank for this blog – I thought hey, if Richard can hack this blogging lark…

    The secret is good writing, well informed about your subect matter, with an irreverent attitude that is particularly well suited to blogging.

    Incidentally, indymedia.ie gets an average of about a half million hits a day, so you’ve some way to climb: http://stats.indymedia.ie/www/ We’re currently talking about using the site more to highlight interesting blog posts so hopefully we can help to get you more readers too in the near future. With more readers you will find more trouble though.

    But surely indymedia readers are a perfectly well-behaved bunch, Chekov?

    Re. Oliver Kamm is an odious little man – the only surprise is that this blog is in the top 1000 results for that phrase.

    Esoteric, but informative… A great combination…

    I envy your numbers but I echo Mick. Is there a little revolutionary inflation going on here?

    Typed in “oliver kamm is a cunt”, but your blog didn’t come up.

    You must try harder.

    The bizarre searches must be all coming my direction (good thing as it seems I need them a lot more than you do :)) A few of my recent favourites:

    “It’s not appropriate for the government to market lotteries”
    “Protestant business community”
    “Deed of sterilization” ??!!!!

    I’ve always enjoyed this blog. My best numbers are Chavez or Palestine posts.

    Aw, shucks… incidentally, I’ve just got a hit for “history of wearing pyjamas”.

    Congrats, Splintered. Now you’re sure that’s not in “dog years”, aren’t you?

    Well, I’m just going by what the ticker at the bottom left says. I’m as surprised as anybody.
