I've been doing some server administration lately, and I thought I'd share some interesting stats on ASC for all of you, for whoever's curious - sometimes it's hard to get a handle on how big or small the site really is, although it's clear it's growing.
Based on website stats for May and going into June, here's what one month on ASC looks like.
Unique visitors: ~42000
Separate visits: 272568
Mouse clicks: 4637775 (4.6 million)
Bandwidth eaten: 265 GB
Percentage of bandwidth from the gallery: 22.6%
Bandwidth thieved by motherf#*$ing searchbots: 5.9 GB
Average length of visit: 14.6 minutes
ASC does not sleep (EST)
Not surprisingly, 85% of our traffic is from Canada, with the US being the next biggest source of visitors.
After that, though, our most active audiences are from (in order, sort of*):
*Some of the european countries would be re-arranged (higher on that list), because alot of european traffic routes through .eu prefixes now, making them hard to track, but it's still a rough idea.
Our favourite browsers:
IE: 73.7% (2 years ago: 94%)
Hope that was entertaining or educational, or something.
