NOT A MOTORHOME TRAVEL BLOG BUT DEFINITELY BLOG RELATED
*** PROUD ****
To 25th June 2022 we have had an average of 19 visits per day to the site, pretty good in anyone's book #illtakeit
Most of my friends and family know of my obsession with numbers and statistics, a defect I accept , but a product of my mathematical background and a lifetime as an "IT Guy" and Annie will tell you a full gadget freak, if its new technology I am there. #3fingersalute #ctlCctlV #imsorryHALicantdothat
Witness after our time up with pals on Mull (see BLOG 177) where we were 1st introduced to FiFi the robot cleaner, that we now have one Alexa driven, tee-hee "Alexa Start Fi-Fi"
Clearly we have Blink cameras focused on our motorhome as protection, in this day and age when you are proud and protective of your vehicle you can't be too careful #recommended
Motorhomes are now much in demand, an adjunct of the Covid pandemic possibly and peoples desires to 1) save cost on their holidays 2) use stay-cations. Part 2 hopefully will not last too long, we would love to get back to Europe for some long trips again in our lovely Wendy House.
We also have a TruckNav for the motorhome which enables us the enter its full dimensions height, width and length which means in planning our route it will avoid narrow roads and low bridges, a real plus
I've always believed since my early discussions / disagreements with a boss at work who said early 80s that the "information supe highway" (now known as the internet would not happen, time for a name drop, it must be in my DNA being at skool wiv Sir Tim Berners-Lee #fact
So I discovered a whole stack of clever ways of getting statistics and reports via WIX, my website creation tool to analyse my blogs and for your delight and delectation I have decided to publish them here, my guess is I will feature a month here every now and then, potentially yearly just to see how the Blogs are being received but who knows, depends on my level of Nerdyness at the time.
I know for you techies a lot of this stuff is available by Google Analytics but this is in so much better presentation material, I'm impressed and that don't happen often #fact

The above table gathered over the years from our embedded counter shows the growth in daily visitors to the site over time, evolving from infancy to where it is now. It has undergone 4 different technologies to create and maintain it #functionalityretired and various rewrites along the way. I confess to struggling to understand the 2 huge hikes in number of visitors per day apart from at the first I probably introduced and / or plugged so much more through social media and was rewriting using WIX although my own visits are allegedly excluded from this equation. Did that obliquely attract more visitors, not sure #yourspuzzled
Anyhow it is my intension from now, maybe yearly to update this table.
Graphically the above table translates as such, the 3 graphs are date 25th June 2022
This actually using summed totals means since inception we have had a average of 19 visits per day to the site #proud
By JULY 2022 we had also had over 250+ NEW visitors to the Blog from around the world. Here is a snapshot of that but you can see up to date details on our site under the dropdown , just search for VISITORS, thanks for looking.
As at March 2023 we now have a fully paid up Visitors map on 3 of my 11 web sites crafted by KeefH Web Designs, all the rest only have the free version of the Visitors map so top out at 100 last visitors but I'm not currently prepared to pay for those.

JUNE 2022 STATS
I have just taken a look at the comparison of new visitors between April and June 2022. The visitor traffic map (which has been a real issue and 7 days wrestling with WIX & Names both of whom said it was NOT their responsibility - it is I pay you both, Grrr x when the map was classed by MS Edge as "unsafe content" / dangerous.... the final solution was WIX had messed up the pointer to a domain for this embedded app so now all sorted - see the commentary at the end of Blog 182 if you are interested)
Anyhow .....rant over ....to the Stats comparison
It should be noted that the "traffic" recognition on this map is only for entirely NEW visitors from that location , returning visitors do not count.
Comparison: So, in 60 days between the 2 dates, we have had 67 NEW visitors that's just above an average of 1 per day, not bad in this lovely motorhome world #tick
I've also included the overall site visitor counter from the Trailer
NOTE on the visitor maps the stats if you don't pay ONLY record the last 100 unique visitors, Google Analytics or Microsoft Clarity are a much better place to look for real statistics. If you do pay and the only one, I currently do that for is motorhome-travels blog .NET you get the last 500 unique visitors. By September 22 this site had 340 unique visitors. This is 114 more than when we last checked in June, so between the 2 dates, which is 95 days. So slightly more than 1 new unique visitor per day, social media is certainly helping #proved
MORE JUNE 2022 STATS
This is the map of visits by town since the start of the year, note that not all 139 towns are listed on the key, but the slideshow that follows shows all the detail #nerdy
NOTE Ashburn listed here with high user count is the Data Capital of the world , want to know more, feeling Nerdy enough then click HERE This data has been gathered from Google Analytics. I have also looked at the WIX Data, not sure if they match but I would expect WIX to get their extensive site statistics directly from Google Analytics but I could be wrong. For good measure you will see following my Statistics here by town taken from the start of 2022 that I also have some statistics for the month of June taken directly from WIX and exported to Excel where maps and charts can be easily made. Let me know what you think in the comments below if you feel so inclined #overmyhead
The TOP 20 town visits since the start of the year are featured in the next image, a lot of them are local attracted potentially by local posts via social media, next door app or whatever It makes interesting reading. Why Columbus Ohio is the top visitor I have no idea #puzzled
Data taken from WIX Statistics for just the month of June 2022
Here is the accompanying list of towns (with their countries attached) and visit data
APRIL 2022 STATS
So here goes, these stats refer to the Month of April 2022 when there were 187 published Blogs on the site, maybe it will only have an audience of 1, i.e. ME ha-ha

I am starting to collect and create a new TOP 10 playlist roughly every year, I first did one on 10 Sept 21 but forgot to create statistics lists so for the second I have decided to record them here.
There were on 20 Sept 22 8900 views of my top 10 videos. This had slightly changed both in terms of sequence of the Top 10 and adding 2 new videos created during the year since the previous September. Here are 19/9/22 image captures for prosperity
If you want to know all about the KeefH Web Designs You Tube playlists then have a read of Blog 8, there are a whole stack of nerdy stats in there as well.
