I came way too late to the Google Analytics mania that is sweeping the globe. Forget Twitter and its limitations. Forget Facebook and those so-called friends. No, what people are really obsessing about out there on the information superhighways is actually what is actually happening on their websites. I've had it up for about 6 months now but was a little surprised when I rooted around for a bit today to find some facts to report your use of this site:
- Facebook vistors from Oslo spend 7 minutes and 41 seconds on average reading these posts. Oslo based visitors coming via Knut's blog spend only 2 minutes and one second during their visit.
- The most popular single post at the moment is the one I wrote last February called "So How Many Calories Are In That Beer Anyway?" It's been visited 11,661 times since it went up. You people are worried about that waistline, aren't you.
- The only other post with a similar level of interest is the one related to the recent passing glance from Instapundit, my review of Tyranena Brewing's Bitter Woman IPA from July 2008.
- I have had three times more visits from Iran than Iraq in 2009.
- Posts with search engine friendly words like "beer prices" and "buying beer in Quebec" do very well with 500-600 visits a month even though they are from 2004 and 2005... and probably not that current or even well written.
- Not giving a rats ass about the movie Beer Wars is worth only about 10% of an instalaunche or the calories in beer.
- The beer brand most sought out by search engine keyword? Duvel.
