Publicvoit Access Statistics for 2020

Show Sidebar

Here is some insight in the 2020 webalizer statistics of my blog.

General Statistics

Usage summary of 2020

In 2020 this blog got 635,000 total visits, 5.4 million(!) hits, 3.7 million transferred files, 2.2 million pages, and 175GB of traffic. The usual monthly visits peaked around 50,000 visits and 450,000 hits per month. I guess this is very good for a personal blog page with focus on specific topics that does not get updates frequently. See the next section for external views and numbers.

Slashdot-Effects

This year, there was one notable situation in late October where - once again - I got slashdotted by Hackernews featuring my article on avoiding web-forums like reddit or hackernews. ;-)

It even resulted in a short-term unavailability of my blog which some comments took as an argument against the main point of my article and others as an example for it. My copy on web.archive.org was up and running all the time. There were no notable downtimes during the rest of the year thanks to probably one of the best admins there are.

Business as Usual

Except the events in late October with a small effect on early November, the other months were business as usual. Here are some examples from November:

Daily usage of November 2020
Hourly usage of November 2020

Subjective Analysis of the Most Popular Articles

Sadly, webalizer does not generate yearly access statistics for pages.

From taking a look at the most recent months, most of the top-20 articles (sorted by popularity) also do reflect my personal "proudness-level", which is very good sign:

External Ranks and Site Value

There are some web services that try to come up with absolute numbers related to what a web-site is worth. Out of curiosity, I tried a few of them. Here are my current figures:

Don't worry: I don't plan to take money from advertisers.

Let's see how publicvoit develops in 2021.
