Statistics: how important are they to you? (7 posts)

    Hits and visits are my only reason for existing. :)
    But (more) seriously, folks.... I certainly like knowing how much traffic I'm getting, and from where. Half the fun is being led to the referring sites that I'd been previously unaware from.
    I just installed the industry standard: Sitemeter. The novelty for me is enough satisfaction. I might switch it at some point.

    I tried to install AW Stats, but it was a disaster, and still isn't working. Ugh... I wish I knew more about Linux. The documentation is horrid.

    I could care less. I hardly ever check my sites' stats unless I'm just feeling curious.

    Statistics: how important are they to you? ... Simple, they're not.

    I'm not as much interested by statistics than by knowing if something I've written has a good chance of being read in the future, i.e. googled (mostly concerning code snippets in various language I post on my blog). So I wrote my own version of a "hit counter", which keeps tracks of the number of page displays, direct hits, direct hits coming from Google, and even the number of times the Googlebot crawled that page :)

    The other thing that I use it for:
    I have some family-oriented sites (for my family): a discussion board, genealogy software, etc... It's all done in an attempt to bring all of my family members together for online discussion. It's catching on... I watch the stats to see who visits, and then I pelt the other members of my family with harassing emails until they do! ;)
    Heh.. not really. I just encourage.
