Current Site Statistics

It’s been a while since I posted the site statistics.  When we moved in early December from our previous host FatCow Christian and I had to figure out how the new host go daddy tabulated statistical information and how to blend the old with the new data. As usual Christian did a fantastic job in assembling this information.

Here are the stats for the site for December, January and February and we have amalgamated information for the previous months. I think these are tremendous numbers and I can’t thank you enough for supporting the site by logging on every day. To enlarge the charts just click on them.


So far the site has generated 14.5 million hits and almost 300,000 visits in just under 7 1/2 months. You will notice that February’s numbers are down from January and there are two reasons for this. January was an incredible month, generating our highest numbers so far at 3.1M hits and 51,000 visits, and the other reason is February is a short month, so 3 days were lost. The total hits for the 3 months (December, January and February) are an astonishing 8.1 million. The reason I’m so pleased is that this is a very small site and for us to generate those numbers shows that we’re doing something right.

For this report Christian has also included the countries where visitors to the site originate. Obviously the biggest numbers are from the U.S but we have readers from 142 countries so far, which demonstrates that we are truly a global site. English is not the first language for most of the bloggers outside of North America, Great Britain and the West Indies, so it’s incredible that all of you visit and read the posts and reviews.

Thanks to all the guest reviewers (Aunt Lynn, Jenre, Val Kovalin, Kassa, Lily, Erastes, Leslie and Kris) who write such in depth and quality reviews every day which give you a sense of the books they liked, loved, and those they thought needed some work. 🙂 My heartfelt appreciation to Christian, without whom this site would not exist. Also, let’s not forget Tam who writes all of those fun posts that you love so much! Erastes whose weekly column is such a delight – love you. You guys rock!!

Here are just a few countries that have joined us recently – Senegal, French Guiana, Saudi Arabia, Jersey, Fiji, Surinam, and Namibia. The full list of countries can be found on the Neocounter on the right hand sidebar. Thanks again for all your support and your humour every time you log on.

  • Congratulations hun :). You’ve worked hard to make this site what it is today and you’ve created something awesome that’s become a resource and a haven for fans from all around the world. A fantastic realization and you can be proud of it ;). I’m so glad I found you when I did. *hugs*

      I do fondly remember the days when you were my only commenter on the old blog. On-line life was not the rat race it is today. 🙂 It will soon be 2 years since I first ventured on the ‘net and what an experience that has been.

      Thank you for encouraging me – you were one of the reasons I stuck it out when I thought no one would ever see my reviews.

  • Congrats, Wave! 😀 Though I’m not surprised you guys get so much traffic. *hee*

    Anyone else notice that over 60% (on the counries chart) is the United States? Bunch of pervs. *straightens pervey-American hat proudly* 😛

    I honestly don’t remember how I first found your reviews. It was before the ‘move’, though, and I can’t seem to stay away. *grins* You (and Jenre’s blog) are two places I actually look at every day, even if I don’t always comment.

    Much continued success!

      I never thought of the US as being the perve capital in the world, but now that you mention it….. 🙂

      Thank you for being a loyal ‘follower’ and you always comment when a post piques your interest.

  • Congratulations on your success, and thank you for the thoughtful and detailed reviews! I like your site very much and I try to check it out as often as possible. I also love how international the site is; it really amazes me that there are m/m readers in Saudi Arabia or in Qatar, for example. And I was sure I was the only one in my little country until I saw we were a staggering 268.:) Thanks again for all your work.

    • Hi Bagma
      Thank you for the compliments on the reviews. The guest reviewers and I take a lot of pride in giving readers information on M/M books to make informed choices. We love it when we get feedback from the readers when we recommend a book and they love it. Similarly, when we screw up we expect you to kick our shins.

      I am constantly surprised at the number of readers from non English speaking countries who access the site. Switzerland, at 268, is quite active in M/M since English is not your first language. 🙂 Thanks to all the bloggers in your country who check out the site and hopefully read the reviews and buy M/M books.

  • I check out this site everyday and most times more than once. I not only enjoy the reviews and the fun posts but all the comments as well. Excellent job, Wave and team! And commenters too!!! Thanks for the fun y’all.

    • Hi Salina
      I love it when we make a ‘regular’ out of someone who probably only intended to stop by once and then got hooked.

      You’re right about the commenters. sometimes they are a riot. 🙂

    • hi Ingrid
      You noticed that The Netherlands had its own zip code. 🙂
      I think you told all your friends who told all their friends.

      Thanks for being so loyal to the site – you know how much we appreciate you, especially Christian.
