Thank you, Google Analytics

Well, according to my friend Google, I have quite alot of visitors, but only around 1 in 10 visitors choose to comment.

I have had exactly 111 new visitors, only 62 of them chose to come back once more. These people were mostly from Jordan (well, duh) - 97. Second up was the US with 55 guests, most from California.

The average time spent on my site was 12 minutes, 55 seconds. This was mostly contributed from Jordanians with a spent time of 16 minutes, 33 seconds.

For those of you who do not know what the "bounce rate" is, it is the amount/percentage of visitors that have came to your site, stayed on the page, then went to a different site. In other words, these are the people that have only read your blog, and haven't cared to go and comment or see the comments.

Anyway, the bounce rate was quite high on most days (grr). Now the interesting part is the traffic sources. Direct sources are the ones that have came straight from typing your link in the address bar, or clicking on a favourite - which means constant visitors.

Direct sources came second place at 41. Now for the great surprise - most of my traffic has come from Qwaider Planet (48). The other minorites come from other blogs (when I comment), including And Far Way, My Treasure, Jameed, and some others.

So let me take this moment to thank all the people who have commented (those 1 in 10 people), as well as Qwaider for adding me, and Bilal for leading me to Google Analytics. And for those wierd people, here are some trivial facts about the visitors.

  • 107 visitors used Firefox and 64 used IE. Very good guys, I'm impressed.
  • 69 visitors had Orange as thier ISP, where as only 11 had Batelco.
  • 11 people had used dial-up to view my website?! People still use dail-up?!
  • 2 people have a Mac, while someone had Linux and someone even had FreeBSD.
