The Shape Of Bzangy

I installed Google Analytics last week and it’s coming up with some interesting stats. I seem to be getting around 130 visitors a day to Bzangy, which I think is quite impressive for as minority interest a website as this. If you look at the pic above, you can see the peak in visits / page views after last Friday. That’s when I posted up the pics from Red so I’m guessing a lot of people were coming here to find pics of themselves 🙂

I’m looking forward to the data building up. Studying the map above, you can see how the people who read Bzangy mostly come from the USA and Europe – no surprises there. But it would be cool to see more dots from outside that area. Then again, this is an English-only website so I know I’m limiting my audience there.

Ahh, now that’s strange. The ‘More Secrets…’ post seems very popular and it’s basically just a link to PostSecret. Hmmm… Good to see the laptop DJing article is still being hit, even if it’s getting a wee bit old now. (I haven’t directly linked to those posts now because that would just skew the stats.)

I’m impressed by the variety of browsers. A few years ago, that would have all just been Internet Explorer. A lot of Bzangy readers are Firefox users – I wonder if that’s partly due to the geekiness of Bzangy attracting geeks? And if you add both Opera versions together, that’s doing well too.

I’m very surprised that 640 x 480 doesn’t appear above at all. I know it’s a pretty ancient res but I’ve seen it still trundling away happily on crappy Uni CRTs. Instead, we have all manner of wild high resolutions. And which of you is running at 1600 x 1200? Now that’s just showing off…

Well, that’s a round-up of the shape of Bzangy (and you lot) at the moment. I’m going to leave it a bit longer and then sift through the data to try and see what needs tweaking. Already, I’m not so worried about looking rubbish on low-res screens as 800 x 600 is the bottom end. Now I’ll have to sort through the exit and entrance points to see if I can make the site more accessible.

Anyway, I’m knackered now so that’ll all have to wait. Byeee!
