Analytics For the Fun of It

The Intrepid StatisticsMonthly traffic. January will probably be the site's best month yet.

It's been eighteen months since I decided to reboot this blog, so out of interest, and partially boredom, I thought it might be useful to take a look at how far this site has come. Bring on the analytics!


  • Unique Visitors: 57,798 (Statcounter)
  • Page Views: 77,547 (Statcounter)
  • Top Traffic Source: Google (Google Analytics)
  • Average Time on Site: 1 minute and 22 seconds (Google Analytics)
  • Bounce Rate: 78.92% (Google Analytics)
  • Most Visitors (by country): United States (Google Analytics)
  • Most Visitors (by city): Toronto (Google Analytics)
  • Feed Subscribers: 40 (FeedBurner)
Top Five Articles
  1. TTC Fantasy Maps - 5,840 page views (Google Analytics)
  2. The Obama Show - 4,967 page views (Google Analytics)
  3. The CN Tower is a Big Frakkin' Toaster - 3,121 page views (Google Analytics)
  4. Toronto Then and Now - 2,821 page views (Google Analytics)
  5. TTC Dream Map - 2,734 page views (Google Analytics)
Together, The Intrepid's top five articles account for approximately 25% of its traffic; looks like the site's back-end is doing its job. I'm a little disappointed that three of the top five articles are just repurposed content, but at least my TTC dream map and Now and Then photos—two projects I put a lot of time into—are doing well.
