    Although, I just realized that WP stats bases it’s “overall” hits on post clicks and not based on unique visitors (like Google analytics). I wish they’d get that worked out because right now it’s not giving you a accurate number.

  3. So how about this…

    I read TechMeme through Google Reader. Is that going to show as a Google Reader referral or TechMeme??

  5. OK, OK, I admit, I was there too yesterday and today.

    Curiously, my own blog stats shows a very similar traffic curve (oh no, wait, the y-scale is a bit off :-)

    Congratulations, you are obviously providing lots of bloggers and readers (including me) a lot of value!

  7. “Although, I just realized that WP stats bases it’s “overall” hits on post clicks and not based on unique visitors (like Google analytics).”

    Our pageview numbers map very closely to external services like Google Analytics and Quantcast because we all use similar methods to count, but you’re correct that we don’t track uniques.

  9. Thanks a lot Robert for showing us your stats, they are quite interesting. I never realised so few people actually clicked through from Techmeme. Is Techmeme your most consistent source of traffic??

  11. It was also interesting to see your Twitter stats. I dont use twitter myself and i never knew you could get decent traffic from your site on twitter to your actual home page. Thanks again for showing us your stats. It is very helpful and it would be great if you could everyone some more stats in the future.

  13. It’s funny. I advertised on my blog earlier today that I got my 1000th visitor (that’s 1000 total visitors ever since my blog started — not today or anything). And here I read Robert’s blog today and he is advertising his stats. I am feeling tiny in the blogosphere now :-)

  15. Scoble’s Plug-Ins

    What kind of toolbars and plug-ins does Robert Scoble uses? That question is now easy to answer. due to his post on his blog with the screen shot of his blog traffic, you can see which toolbars and plug-ins are

  16. Robert, somehow I think you’re trying to make a point about Techmeme’s relevance, but perhaps it’s a bit too much thinking “inside the box”.

    I have a site that gets about 10 million pageviews/month whose main source of visitors, besides Google, Yahoo (yes, Yahoo) and direct access, are blogger.com, programas-gratis.net, stumbleupon.com, bloglines.com and msn.com

    Blogger, Bloglines? Mind you, it’s not a blog nor a blogging platform!

    But programas-gratis.net? This is a rustic website with only a 1,500 rating in Alexa (regardless of what it can be said about Alexa). Nonetheless, it scores (at Alexa) much better than Techmeme.

    Your stats may show Techmeme as a major source, but in the big picture, I don’t think it means much, neither to prove your point nor to disregard it about Techmeme’s relevance.

  18. Robert’s biggest spike was less than half of Valleywag’s daily average, interesting. I’m in Silicon Valley and PR people keep trying to convince me that everyone reads Scoble and no one reads “Valleyrag.” Probably because it’s easier for them to get a link on Scoble and charge me the client for it.

  20. edouard: what’s weird is that I get way more comments per post than Valleywag does and sites I link to get way more traffic. I also get more traffic on many posts. Translation: I don’t trust those numbers.

  22. Thanks for sharing…now I’ll go back to my tiny stats and envy yours from afar…

    How were your stats the first year you started to now? The first quarter, first 6 months? Is there hope for us newbies? Or will all the top blogs be the top blogs forever? I’m only half kidding here…

  24. Aruni: I started blogging December 15, 2000. Dave Winer linked to me in early January of 2001 and sent me something like 3,000 people. I remember being impressed by that and thinking that I’d never have as many readers as he does.

  26. I remember when i had a blog on WP community, often in top ten blogs (above all in italian language and also in En sometimes): you always are as the 1th blog or in the top 5. Your stats are great but as in the comment the plugin stats don’t track uniques.

  28. Didn’t you used to have a sponsored link? What was the difference in results between a paid advert and an editorial link. I looked up your site on compete and it showed a huge jump from May 2007 20K, to 113,000 in September (after a fall from July to September) … many sites follow that same curve, maybe it’s more about their panel than anything.

  30. Link In. Link Out. Shake it All About.

    Many are more concerned about fighting for total visitors and determining where their links come from than they are about creating new content.
