site statistics

I hadn’t looked at site logs in over a year until today.  Here are the numbers according to the Dreamhost panel:

I’ve been blogging more lately which explains why Dec 2011 is tracking to be up near 2M page views (although frankly that number seems high to me- I wonder if somehow they are counting each page view multiple times – maybe due to the way WordPress works?)

As if we needed another reminder of how wrong Compete data is here is their chart:

Not even directionally correct.  Yeah they show UVs and not pageviews but I don’t see any reason those would have gotten decoupled.

(I had tagged with Quantcast for a while but removed it a few weeks ago –  their chart when was tagged makes more sense (as you’d expect)).

I blog just for fun / hobby, so don’t really care about these stats. But it’s interesting to see the (in)correctness of these popular analytics services.
