You know me and my stats, I love em! That’s why I have a DGB Stats page right at the very top of this site, just so you can see how much the site has grown over the past four years!

I had a bit of time spare earlier on this afternoon so I thought I would do a bit of a comparison. Being a bit more specific, a comparison of the traffic and stats on DGB of the first 6 months of this years to the first 6 months of 2012. So here they are:

First 6 months of 2012:

Visits: 33100

Page Views: 78887

Unique Visitors: 18644

Av of 2.383 page views per visit.

First 6 months of 2013:

Visits: 44160

Page Views: 79803

Unique visitors: 34054

Av of 1.807 page views per visit

I think the most pleasing out of all those numbers is the huge rise in unique visitors. What it does demonstrate is that the site is now going out to more and more new people all the time. In fact there are 15410 EXTRA unique visitors in the first 6 months of this year compared to the same period last year. That is almost double. Something I am very proud of.

The other big jumper is the number of visits. They have leaped up by 11060, which is a third. This would tie in well with the numbers of extra unique visitors.

Page views are also up but only by just under 1000. Up is still up, but not as dramatic as the visits or unique visitors. So I must try harder!

I’ll probably do one of these posts every 6 months from now on, and a yearly one. Just because I like numbers and I’m a bit sad like that!
