visitors, hi!

My blog stats are not very interesting reading except to indicate that the total number of visitors has been increasing to this blog since I shifted here from blogspot in late July 2006.

What is weird is the difference between the figures from statcounter.com and the stats through the host server (cpanel, awstats).

According to statcounter I get around 290 visitors a day.

The story for the raw host server stats are different. Even accounting for search engine and feeder crawlers, and error pages, which are removed from visitor stats, I had been getting around 10,000 visitors a month, from about 7,000 August last year, and now in August 2007 so far it is around 12,000 unique visitors (20,000 total visits, 1.57 per person). So at around 740 visits a day.

I am not sure why there is such a massive difference. Statcounter works by leaving a cookie, but the server stats just count every visit (pages and hits are different stats to visits, 1300 pages and 3200 hits per day). Maybe statcounter is not counting visitors properly? I am not sure.

And 773 visits for the month came from playstation portable! lol!

EDIT: 02/09/07
