This represents around 21.61 posts a day, and 4.73 topics/day. An average of 3.12 users join us every day. Geographically, 50.63% of our users come from the USA, 6.92% from the UK, 4.82% from Canada, 4.29% from France, 3.79% from China, 3% from India, 1.94% from Australia, 1.84% from the Philippines, 1.44% from Germany, 1.20% from Vietnam, 1.17% from Iran, 1.06% from Croatia, 1.06% from Korea, and then all the other countries fall under the 1% bar. (Only 2 people visited us from Iraq) The top 3 browsers used are MSIE 6 (38.16%), Firefox 2 (27.88%), and MSIE 7 (17.89%). Only one person has already visited our website with an Iphone (crazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy !) 89.74% of the visitors use Windows, 4.26% MAC, 3.04% Linux/Unix. As for the search engine traffic, 74.08% of it is brought by Google, 23.79% by Yahoo, and the rest is shared among the other players (including Live search by msn, which performs very poorly). Eventually, let's note that the top 10 posters concentrate 63.7% of the posts, which would tend to confirm Pareto's law that 80% of the stuff is usually produced by 20% of the entities ...

Congratulations, cknapp! You will finally be able to leave when you are infinitely old.

 November 12th, 2007, 08:46 PM #10 Site Founder     Joined: Nov 2006 From: France Posts: 824 Thanks: 7 So far our traffic is modest and has been roughly increasing (taking into account seasons, and the artificial effect of stumbleupon) to reach a natural peak in October 07 with 8300 unique visitors for a total of 43549 visits (on the homepage). November seems to lose a little momentum due to several factors. However, I'd say we'll have roughly 35,000 visits. Compared with other websites, well, a large math forum would have around 15 times as much traffic I guess ...
