Spikes Without StumbleUpon

Stats, yay! Here is a graph of this blog’s hits for the last 30 days.

The final view count for yesterday, Dec. 7, was 661. I have not had this many in one day since April. This spike is nothing compared to a couple of previous spikes, but this one is accomplished without the use of a discovery or social news site such as StumbleUpon or Digg.

Granted, I have StumbleUpon contributing about 10-30 views each day, but it’s not the majority of the views. On Dec 7, I had 17 referrals from StumbleUpon, 28 from Tumblr, 91 from Facebook (!), and 107 from search engine referrals. The rest are scattered. Why are there many more than the previous day? Well, I posted Dec. 6’s topic post at around 10 pm, so most of the views from that actually came in on Dec. 7. Furthermore, I made two posts on Dec. 7, so in total it’s as if I had 3 new posts contributing to view count.

Plus, the scavenger hunt in the last post encouraged people to look around the site, which added even more views.

*Alright, NO hidden meanings or references in this post. Okay? Okay!

Edit: Nevermind, I realized this spike DID come from StumbleUpon. Just indirectly.

  1. Well, if you take the 4th letter of the 2nd line, followed by the 9th and 6th letters of the seventh and eleventh lines respectively…
    Obviously in Base 13 as well.
