I hadn’t looked at cdixon.org 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 cdixon.org tagged with Quantcast for a while but removed it a few weeks ago – their chart when cdixon.org 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.
