Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you all had an enjoyable holiday season and are ready to work with us to make Open Wonderland the premiere virtual world platform in 2011.
To start off the new year, I thought I’d share this message I just received from WordPress about our blog. It’s good baseline data to have just at the time we’ve begun working on search engine optimization for the Open Wonderland site. Next year at this time I’m hoping we’ll see a much broader list of “referring sites” as well as a general uptick in the number of views and comments.
2010 in Review
The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow. We think you did great!
The average container ship can carry about 4,500 containers. This blog was viewed about 21,000 times in 2010. If each view were a shipping container, your blog would have filled about 5 fully loaded ships.
In 2010, there were 56 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 170 posts. There were 513 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 102mb. That’s about a picture per day.
The busiest day of the year was February 4th with 477 views. The most popular post that day was The New Wonderblog.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were openwonderland.org, blogs.sun.com, projectwonderland.com, facebook.com, and twitter.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for open wonderland, wonderblog, openwonderland, open wonderland download worlds, and project wonderland firewalls and proxies.
