I can’t explain the popularity of the End of an Era: Knights in Shining Armor post, either, but it must have SEO out the wazoo.

The largest non-search-engine referrer was Google Reader at 4000, followed by a Lifehacker traffic spike at 3000, and then everything else. As far as search engines go: Google and debris.

In round numbers, 650 visitors get 1000 total views per day; the overall views/visitor runs around 1.75, which I interpret to mean most folks find exactly what they want on the first page. As nearly as I can tell from the daily stats, 300 of you visit the main page and post-of-the-day, plus another 100 click in from the RSS feed. The numbers don’t add up, primarily because RSS feed clicks don’t seem to enter into their totals.

It’s definitely not a get-rich-quick scheme, that’s for sure…

It’s still fun and I really do use this blog as my notebook: some of those searches come from me. I appreciate you folks helping me out with useful comments and suggestion: thanks!
