Odd that my lack of blogging does not seem to have affected traffic on this site! I posted in April of last year that the site had reached 1,000 page views from 400 unique visitors; that was over approximately 3 months of operation. In the (almost a full) year since then, there have been over 7,000 page views from 3,400-plus unique visitors, despite the fact that I have written exactly two blog posts in that time span (one of them yesterday):

Unsurprisingly, my most popular post — with 2,000 page views! — is still my ColdFusion Solr Tutorial, written in February 2012. Hopefully it is still relevant even with the release of ColdFusion 10. On the surprising side, my second most popular post is the aforementioned post about SHA hashing in Oracle 10g. I wish I could take even some credit for the content of that post but all I really did was bring the word of another developer (Jakub Wartak) to the attention of this blog’s readers. I wish I could say that my posts on SQL have been as warmly received!

Some statistics

Posted by David Faber on March 8, 2012

At some point yesterday this blog passed 200 unique visitors and 400 page views. And today we had our 300th visit.

I guess that’s what one would call starting small. 🙂

On a side note, I’ve recently posted on:

  1. How to handle Solr query results in ColdFusion;
  2. Returning the number of milliseconds elapsed since midnight in Oracle (useful for seeding a random number generator);
  3. Paginating query results in Oracle 10g; and
  4. Changing the port on which Jetty listens if you want to use a port other than the default (8983).

Oh, and aside from the United States, this blog is most popular in:

  1. India,
  2. Germany,
  3. Canada,
  4. The United Kingdom, and
  5. Italy.

Of course special mention must also be made to Norway! Most unexpected was the single visit from Lagos, Nigeria. Within the U.S., the greatest number of visits are from:

  1. Philadelphia, PA;
  2. Bozeman, MT;
  3. Washington, DC;
  4. Harrisburg, PA; and
  5. Chicago, IL.

Those five actually combine for over 1/3 of my visits from the U.S. and nearly 1/4 of my total visits.
