Electric City Renaissance

Voted “best local blog” in the Electric City Readers poll 2005.

Well, at least its running WordPress.

    I like free entertainment weeklies, but when they cross over to the blogosphere no good can come of it.

    I would like to see the server logs for that site. Are more NEPAers really reading a site that’s just a bunch of press releases than the fine blogs of Paulukonis, Chloe, et al?

    Well, I wouldn’t call it a site of press releases, but it certainly seems under-staffed.

    I’ll be highlighting some of my favorite local blogs, here, as the week progresses.

    In the meantime, dig through the REGIONAL category for some local goodness.

    Now, those are raw server stats and have to be taken with a grain of Salt. Xrad’s SiteMeter stats only record slightly more than 100,000 visitors over the life of the website, but my server stats report 90,000+ page-serves for the past month.

    So, numbers are weird. Who to belive?

    I’ll take the smaller numbers, becuase I think the page-serves count each and every single php-include and while running a blog, there’s a ton of them per “page.”

    Not to pick nits, or anything…

    I never before heard of this particular Scranton based blog. I never came across it before, which is rather surprising if it’s popular… because I do regularly come across local blogs & on-line journals of varying types, in the course of web surfing. I don’t think I’ve seen this blog linked from any blogs I read regularly, before now.

    Not that I don’t think it deserves any attention.
    But I suspect there must’ve been some kind of write-in campaign pushed by the site owner(s), while the rest of us didn’t vote because we either didn’t happen to pick up that particular issue (with the ballot), or because we were too busy blogging and reading other area blogs instead of reading Electric City. heehee. ;)

    Yeah, site stats can be misleading or confusing, depending… Just because a raw log shows something – a site could have some files on their system that a group of people are accessing regularly, etc., that’s not necessarily part of the blog on a site.
    My domain, as a whole, got 295,645 hits in the month of October, according to my site logs.
    My blog, specifically, shows an average of 81 hits per day, according to SiteMeter (which is only logging pages under /blog/).
    Another discrepancy in site stats can be the difference between actual readers or local visitors, as opposed to random (and often inaccurate -haha) hits coming from search engines.
    My blog shows an average of 81 hits per day. This blog shows an average of 344 hits a day…
    But the site referrals show that many hits to this blog are coming from Google Image search. I have blocked from Google Image Search — meaning you can’t find any images/photos from my web site by using Google Image Search, so I get no hits from that… which if I didn’t have it blocked, my blog would probably show similar stats as this blog.

    And yeah, site logs track every file as a hit. For example, it also includes every time I upload a personal home movie to share with family & friends instead of sending a huge file through e-mail, that isn’t actually posted in my Audio & Visual section. It includes every PHP insert, and I believe every time a CGI script is called.

    Because you don’t have trackbacks (heh)…

    I’m supposed to have trackbacks, but they stopped working, or only work sporadically. Just one more of those things I plan to track down once these classes are over. G-d, I can’t wait for January….
