website traffic

I have not looked for a long time at the statistics maintained by my web hosting service.

Wow! I am very pleasantly surprised … impressed even.

Thank you for stopping by.

Your visits to my pages are both rewarding and inspiring. I’ll keep up my end of the deal as best I can.

December 2017 statistics:
Average number of visits per day = 332
Average number of pages viewed per day = 895
Average website hits per day = 1121
Over 400 of those visits lasted more than a half hour.

As I said, I have not been looking at these stats for a long time. I had not noticed the growth.

It now is unsurprising that my websites got hacked last October. There is enough traffic to be worth trying to steal or subvert. I probably ought to up my defensive game a notch or two.
