Wishing everybody a very happy and prosperous 2009!

With 275 total blog entries published during 2008 on this blog, 2008 was the most blogging-healthy year. Thanks to all the readers of this blog for a continually increased readership.

Here are some statistics for this blog for the year 2008 (2007 stats here) generated by Google Analytics:

2007 reported 183,031 visits and that shows upto 86% growth in page visits.

The average index is constantly over 2000 (again better than 2007). But there is a definite mismatch between numbers reported blogs.sun.com (powered by Roller) and Google Analytics. Unless the definition of “page views” is different, the numbers reported on this blog are constantly in the figure of 6-8K/day and Analytics report only in the vicinity of 2K.

Here is a geographic distribution of visitors:

And same data using ClustrMaps (from Jun 20, 2008 only):

Jun 2007 – Jun 2008 clustrmap is archived here.

  2. Dominique,

    In Design/Templates/_sideColumn.
