Congratulations, you can now view my stats!

I figured out how to make my Charley Project visitor stats public. As you can see, Charley generally averages about 2,000 to 3,000 visits a day. I got over 10,000 one time, when some really high-profile case hit the news (maybe Shawn Hornbeck, I can’t remember). The most commonly visited page right now is, shockingly enough, my entry page. The second most popular is the Everett Ruess casefile, which no longer exists since I resolved his case. That’s always a problem — there’s a high-profile resolve, and I remove the casefile, and loads of people try to look at it and it’s no longer there. Unless they know how to use Google cache, they won’t be able to see anything.

Speaking of stats, by blog readership is increasing. It started out at about 300 visits a day, and now it’s up to like 500. It had 740 visits on April 21 for some reason. *strokes her ego*

    It looks like you get a lot more than that – more like 50,000 visits a day. You get about 2,000 hits per hour.

      I know a lot of people use the terms interchangeably, but there’s a difference between visits and hits. If you go to Charley once and view 10 pages on the site, that’s 10 hits for me, but only one unique visit. Visits are a more accurate way of determining website traffic.

    We’re proud of you, Meaghan, as this is easily, EASILY the best site on the internet in terms of the missing. The blog’s a fine addition to an already excellent site.

    *echoing Anthony’s applause* Yes, this is a great site. Accurate, easy to use, up to date, and now this lovely blog to play in. YOu go, Meggers.
    Hey, don’tlook at me! Anthony first coined that nickname and attributed it to me, so what’s a person gonna do?
