2009 Blog Stats

Inspired by this post on our techno-wizard friends' blog: Hello World, I thought I'd take a look at our blog stats for 2009. This is what I found out (we launched the blog in August 2009):

3,078 Visits
579 Unique Visitors
5,346 Page Views

58% of visitors come to the site directly
11% of visitors come via google
9% of visitors find us via blogger
6% of visitors come via a hotmail link (likely my email signature)

Our visitors hail mostly from Canada and the USA, but also consistent number from UK and throughout Europe, and odd numbers from all sorts of countries around the globe. Brazil, seems to also have high number of visitors for some reason??

The keywords that people used to find us were mostly typical - some combination of our names, the boat name/model, etc. Other questionable/humorous keywords were:
  • engine cleaners
  • renova .02 pump
  • renova more:drug_warnings_recalls
Obviously, I need to take a page from Hello World, and write more posts about Blue-footed Boobies and turkish hookers, if I really want to increase my readership. Hmmm... perhaps a resolution for 2010 is in the works here...

Glad you are enjoying La Paz and I can remember how hard it was to leave for all the reasons you mentioned.

Sorry to hear you may not visit the Sea in the spring..maybe you can pass along the book to some deserving cruiser? Lots of us wanted to get south and on our way cruising, but there is SO much to see and do while in Mexico, it is a shame to be on the "gofast" track.

Hi Keri - you're right, this place is glorious, and VERY hard to leave. We're back again!! But while we're on the 'gofast' track for the moment, we're also on the 'come back here later' track!! And - yes, the book is now in good hands. And what a fabulous book it has been - THANK YOU!!
