make the usual monthly page this year, I thought it might be
simpler to save myself some time and publish the
Wyenot.com monthly viewer statistics as a part of the News pages.
the Wyenot.com server log showed 2,302,417 'hits'. I do not
like the term 'hits' however as this includes visits by web
crawlers and many web site owners use this figure to blind Joe
Public with stunning figures. This 2.3 million 'hits' actually
equated to 343,086 pages of the web site being visited by 70,184
unique human individuals. Dividing the pages served by the unique
visitor count, shows that the average visitor to Wyenot.com
looked at 4.8 pages. I am extremely pleased with this figure
as many will have looked at far more. This is a sign that the
web site is proving to be of interest, rather than just a collector
of people hitting the first page and getting bored!
January is the 'quiet' month for visitors to this web site -
the lull before the start of the tourist season. This year however,
January has proved to be anything but quiet! For reasons unknown

schools and colleges visiting the site on a daily basis. If
you happen to be one of these academic visitors, out of curiosity
I would be interested to find the reason for this sudden increase

beginning to think about booking holidays and weekend breaks!

The IP address
which made the most individual visits belongs to a College in
Birmingham, closely followed by an internet gateway address
belonging to Herefordshire Council. The most data by any user
group was downloaded by the computers using the Herefordshire
Council gateway (82.379 Megabytes). Hmm, interesting!
