And, here is the list of the top 20 requested pages:
The logs revealed that 51 people used the "refer a friend" CGI script we run a WebWord.com. It works great, it is free, and it can be found at Big Nose Bird. We have it on basically every page and we'd like people to use it more! Give it a try.
No surprise, but Saturdays and Sundays are slow at WebWord.com. More interesting is that Monday and Tuesday are the busiest days. This has been true for the last two years. It is a curious thing that we have not been able to figure out. Of course, people visit most from 10AM-6:00PM. For what it is worth, the single busiest hour is from 11:00AM-12:00PM. These two figures could be used by WebWord.com to determine the best days and times to deliver our newsletter, which currently reaches just under 2,500 people.
57% of WebWord visitors were using Microsoft Internet Explorer. 80% of those used IE5, 17% used IE4 and just over 1% used IE3. Interestingly, there were 222 user sessions at WebWord of users using IE1. Amazing! 23% of WebWord users were using a Netscape browser. A whopping 95% used Navigator 4. There is a strange entry in the logs that indicates that 10 user sessions were done by people using Netscape Navigator 8. We have no idea what this indicates or if this is simply a glitch. 70% of WebWord.com visitors were running Windows 95, 98, or NT.
We are not sure why, but companies seem to be afraid of telling people what kind of traffic they get, where it is coming from, what is popular, and so forth. We agree that it is strategic information and as such, it has definite extrinsic value. However, WebWord is committed to its Open Company Manifesto whereby we will provide you with as much information as we can. This is not because we are kind and gentle. We do this because we have found that the more information we provide to our readers, the more our traffic grows. We also get more email and our consulting revenues grow. In short, people like this information, and since they like it, we dish it out when we can.
