Statistics and Counts

 

For those of you who have that craving for additional delineation, and understanding of who visits this blog, and where they come from you may want to look at the following tables. Those in .png format must be manually updated; and the visual quality my not be perfect.  All materials will be updated approximately once a month (on the last day of the month) as more information can be provided.  At some point I hope to add to this page the countries that visit this site using an autonomous updating service.

This first diagram is in three sections (left to right).  The first section is the information Google analytics gives me.  The second section is an estimated reduction of count to compensate for my own looking at HostasByKelley.  For some reason Google does not know HOW to listen to my request NOT to count me in their totals; so I have the extra work of compensating the data on my end.  The third section is information that no analytics service could ever produce for me.  Since the journalizing of my work occurs twice a month I must also assume that you return twice a month to see what I've written.  So the third section takes the information from the second section and divides the number in half (rounding up as I an optimist).  At the end of all this number crunching I have an estimate of a very small readership of some where between 69 and 79 readers on a monthly, global basis.

What Googles base information does not reveal is how many are return visitors, and how many are one time (unique) visitors; thus my information is more estimated than not.  The full scale Google analytics pages are suggesting that have less than a handful of return readers which I don't think is accurate (at least not at this time).

Google Documentation June 2017: The Blogger.com stats are trying to tell me that I had NO visitors during June when in fact earlier in the month I noted a count of 44.  The count will remain at 44 on this record. There is a good chance that they will no longer update these stats accurately.  The FatCow Stats in the next section may have to suffice from this point forward.

To be honest my readership goal is to bring this to about 200 to 300 readers per month; pie-in-the-sky would be 1000.  Using the 300 person goal, in the USA alone that would be about 4 to 6 readers from each USA state; on a global basis that would be less than 1 person per nation.  The goal I think is achievable ... at some point.  Keep passing the word guys, were 1/3 of the way there!

The next block is information based on information provided by FatCow; the web-service that provides for the home for PBK'sPlace.  I've refined the math process just a little but it's just as awkward to post.  In this scenario I've down scaled the author's visits to 5% rather than 10% for the author's visits.  Again this has to be recompiled and posted manually.

The final numbers here are still very much estimates because of the way statistics are gathered, compiled, and documented by analytic services.  These numbers also include internet 'spiders', and 'feelers' which detect and test websites (which in many cases are legitimate tools).

Total Website:  This number is the total 'legitimate' visitors to PBK'sPlace site.  Note the author's visits are estimated to the right and removed in that method.

Unique [Visitors]: The count of one time visitors

Return Visitors: The count of the number of returning visits to the website.  This number is calculated from Total Visitors - Unique Visitors.

Estimated Author's Visits: the estimated number of times the Author visits the website to verify the apperance or content presentation of the site.  This number may be a little high in estimate.

Corrected Return Visitors: is a calculation of Return Visitors - Author's Visits.

Return Visitor Count for Edition: is a calculation of Corrected Returning Visitors / 2; rounded up.

Monthly Estimate for Visitors: is a calculation of: Visitor Count per Edition + Unique Visitors.

Annual Return Visitors = sum(Monthy Estimate for Visitors [year by year basis]Column 6

Annual Total Unique = sum(Unique [Visitors]. [year by year basis])  Column 2

Anuual Estimate Total = sum(Monthly Estimate for Visitors [year by year basis]) Column 7
