A day from one

Birthday cake

Tomorrow, 25 May 2013, this little website will be a year old. My lovely friend ABJane has suggested she could well be writing a birthday post for Toddlerism which is certainly going to be better any old rubbish I could slap together without pictures of new toddler clothes to help. This means I can do the obligatory anniversary stat-porn today. Sorry, I know it’s hardly a thrill, but at least it’ll distract both of you, dear reader, as you read, and me as I write, from actual work which we may otherwise find ourselves doing. Here come the numbers fresh from Google Analytics and WordPress Statistics as suits.

In the first 364 days of Toddlerism’s existence:
36,534 people have visited
48,223 times, viewing a total of
131,212 pages, which is
2.721 pages per visit and
3 minutes 31 seconds is the average visit time which is
1 minute 17 seconds spent on average on each page (cripes, I must be at least reasonably interesting) and a whopping great
75.75% were what are euphemistically known as ‘new visitors’, which is to say I bored them so much they only visited once (the swine!). The three countries of origin this site received most visitors from were
44% USA (0.0052% of the total population have visited this site)
26% UK (this apparently shows that over double the proportion of British people (0.014% of the entire population or about 10k individuals) compared to Americans are interested enough in things toddlerish to visit Toddlerism. Alas, it’s merely me being here; not loads of local friends for me!), and
5.5% Canada
7% of my visitors were from London (that’s roughly 2.6k large toddlers, or 0.04% of the population of London have visited to this site – cracking reach Davy!)
24% of you use Chrome as your web browser
23% use Internet Explorer (glad those two are top, all other web browsers, especially Safari (21%) and Firefox (20%), are torrents of raw sewage. Just goes to show that those infant-brained developers who (invariably for reasons of incoherent dogma) refuse to make their sites work with a particular browser, or worse just target one browser, are going to bum off large proportions of their visitors and so lose tit-loads of traffic – a closed mind is no mind.)
13.5% of the pageviews were looking specifically at all posts in the category ‘Adult baby suppliers’ whereas the most popular single post, at
4.3% of pageviews for the review of the Fabine adult baby diaper seems very low, but then all posts were visible on the homepage, visited
10.9% of all pageviews, for most of the 364 days
47.4% of you let Google lead you here, an average of 63 per day peaking at 318 referrals on 14 December 2012,
19.6% know me well enough not to need another website to introduce you and
5.9% were kindly pointed here by ABKingdom.com
29.5% of people coming here from search engines refused to tell me what they were searching for (bit miserable, don’t you think?)
6.8% of searches, plus some of the above no doubt, were for ‘adult baby clothes’ (I think I do boyly clothes quite well. I wonder if I could draft in wonderful Jane or fabulous Loli to pen some girly clothes articles to restore my blatant and shameful sexism, namely being a boy)
3,076 is the highest number of outgoing clicks to baby-pants.com,Β  the next most-clicked on adult baby supplier got
1,509 visits from me and it was Nevergrownup, both shops I’m delighted to support.

And I think that’s enough stat-porn this year. Quite right too we don’t want rhythm information when there are toddlers present. Tune your 24% Chrome and 23% IE browsers here tomorrow for, lets cross our fingers, a far better blog post. I trust Jane not to litter it with bold and italic text…

  • If I cannot write a vastly opinionated, approximately calculated and injudiciously judged post when I’m tired beyond belief and just about to reach for the second bottle of website birthday wi… *ahem* grape juice just before I run out the door to see a government sponsored meddlesome ratbag (who now has the cheek to make me wait in a worrying waiting room when I had to stop speaking to two friends so I’d be on time to see her), when can I write one? πŸ˜€

    Hooray! Best sentence I’ve written all day!

  • I’m still waiting, so:

    If you’d be interested in buying a gift for the Toddlerism.com editorial team (aka Toddler Davy, aka me) then you can choose to send any one (or more) from this fine selection of glorious pressies, starting from under two of my British pounds. Just a questionably vague hint πŸ™‚

    I am so sorry that I can’t buy you a gift, as money is a bit tight at the moment. But I can wish toddlerism.com a happy 1st birthday

    Happy 1st Birthday toddlerism.com
