I am actually hosting a few other sites in the same directory structure, so some of the stats are mixed in with other sites, but Sheppy Brew is by far the most active, so most it dominates most of the stats.
Here are the top 11 pages requested at the Sheppy Brew web site (listed most to least):
- Inventory Page
- Buckwheat's BPA
- Home Page
- Other Beers
- Quarter Life Crisis Hoppy Red Ale
- Phat & Tyred Amber Ale
- Tommy Hawk APA
- Brewing Calendar
- Tweedle Beetle Imperial Stout
- Blackhawk Black Ale
- Stone Soup IDA
And, actually, the list above only includes public facing pages. I just left off the login page and some of my content management pages, which actually rank pretty high. This also points out that most of the traffic to sheppybrew.com comes from the Brew Master (me).
It is clear, though, that others do go to the site. It is hard to say who these people are, but I can tell you some things about my web audience.
The top 3 referring sites are (certainly not surprising):
My hosting company (GoDaddy) does not break out the IP address by country, which is a bummer. I bet I could find references to get that information, but am not going to go through the effort at the moment.
As I mentioned, there are other sites hosted here. But none of these are even close to as popular as the Sheppy Brew website. I started hosting beer.ericshepard.com at my hosting account with GoDaddy in 2010, and the yearly report shows activity in 2010 up over 2009 to a factor of 62 (over 6200%). Specifically, the Sheppy Brew website started with GoDaddy in March of 2010. Between February and March of 2010, the increase of activity was over 6900%.
Obviously, the Most active year: 2010.
Most active quarter: Q2 2010
Most active month: March 2010
Most active week beginning: March 7 2010
Most active day: March 4, 2010
Most active hour: Feb 23, 2006 07:00 - 07:59 (Interesting since this was before Sheppy Brew existed and certainly well before it started being hosted here.)
Days of the week are pretty evenly distributed, but Thursday has a 10% lead over 2nd place Friday and a 33% lead over last place Sunday.
The most active hour of the day is 2 - 2:59 AM. It is closely followed by 12 - 12:59 AM and then 9 - 9:59 PM and then 11 - 11:59 PM. "After hours (5pm - 7:59AM)" are about twice as active as "Work Hours (8AM - 4:59PM)"
The Mozilla browser is about 3 times more popular in accessing my sites than 2nd place MS Internet Explorer.
Windows Operating Systems clearly dominate when it comes to what was used to access my web sites.
Ok, well, I'm quite certain that very few of my blog readers care at all about this. I did find it interesting to go through and see all this information, but it certainly is not that useful to me. Yep, I'm a geek.
