Usually I would have done this closer to the beginning of the month, but there were so many big stories that it slipped my mind. But here it is, in a “better late than never” sense.
The number of visitors was 818, up from 556 in September, the page views however went down to 2571, from 2807 in September.
The front page measured a total of 1056 page views, comprising 875 to http://samuelgordonstewart.com, 133 to http://www.samuelgordonstewart.com, 45 to http://samuelgordonstewart.com/index.php & 3 to http://www.samuelgordonstewart.com/index.php. In total, the front page made up 41.07% of the monthly page views.
Google remained the most popular search engine, with it’s Australian incarnation delivering 47.26% of search visits alone.
Searches for John B1_B5 accounted for just over 20% of the searches for the month. Others of note include quite a few various searches for me, 2UE Stuart Bocking (who has now been removed from weekend nights on 2UE), 2CC Reunion, 2CC Birthday, Mike Jeffreys, Jingles For Daylight Savings (huh? Anybody want to help me understand why anybody would be searching for that), and the list goes on and on and on and on and on.
Internet Explorer delivered most of the people here, 66.82% in fact. Firefox was next with 30.61%. I suppose, now that this blog is being visited by more people, it is quite understandable that Internet Explorer is featuring more prominently. I still think Firefox is better though.
Windows was the operating system of choice, with 92.07% of visitors using it. Linux and Macintosh were the other two recorded.
81.15% of visitors were from Australia, with the US, New Zealand, Great Britain, France and Germany rounding out the countries above 1%.
Top referrer for the month was The RiotACT  with 61 referrals, although I expect the number to drop over the next month as I have decided to stop posting there. Next up was Margo Kingston’s Webdiary’s list of links to articles on anti-terrorism laws  with 18 and Loadedog.com’s links to Canberra blogs and bands  was the third of the top three with 8.
The video of the horrid amount of noise ACTION’s green buses make  was the most requested file, it was requested 18 times. One of the old 2CC Music Radio jingles  was next with 12 requests, and the MP4 version of the video of Rob Fulton winning a million dollars on Who Wants To Be A Millionare  with 11 requests rounds out the top three files of the month.
