Reviewing Stats for 2011
I thought I’d pass on some stats on this site, as I’ve found them encouraging.
In 2011, there were ca. 130,000 views on this site, making over 196,000 since its launch in July 2010. The traffic flow fluctuates, largely based on how wide an interest there is in the posts. The busiest day was in March 2011, with 10,000 views in response to a posting on those Lead Codices that UK newspapers were hailing as perhaps the most important archaeological discovery of the past century. My posting was one of a number that pointed out the flaws in the claims and that (rightly) judged the items as bogus.
Impossible for me to predict what matters will generate postings or views in 2012. I’ll simply try to develop the site as a venue for reliable information on the New Testament and the origins of Christianity, making the information accessible to anyone interested.
I don’t use the site to make money (though some others do), and so don’t have cozy links with various firms that have approached me to do so. It’s just a site for those who are interested in the subject.
All the best for 2012!
