Since Ning added the ability to track statistics properly on Crimespace, I've had Google Analytics running for a couple of weeks now. In the spirit of sharing, here are some statistics, all taken from the week starting on August 13th:

1,507 Absolute Unique Visitors
4,308 Visits
24,548 Pageviews
5.70 Pages/Visit
11 minutes 38 seconds Avg. Time On Site
26.02% New Visits

Top countries by Visits:

United States: 3,071
United Kingdom: 632
Canada: 229
Australia: 186
Germany: 44
Ireland: 34
France: 16
South Africa: 12

And, just for fun, here are some random keyword searches that brought people to Crimespace:

"who is conrad hirst"
zeltserman "Bad thoughts"
"jordan dane" harpercollins
love is murder convention
sexiest crime writer
latest crime fiction

Obviously we have a few authors who love Googling themselves (joking!), so it's good to see that being on Crimespace can be helpful to both authors and their readers.

I'm still looking into a good way to display all the authors on Crimespace, but that's turning into something fairly complex and time consuming. I will get there, though, eventually.

Lastly, I'll leave you with a few of the more interesting keyword searches that brought people to this fine drinking establishment:

'barns and novels'
'long dicks'
'horse's arse'

And the winner of the most exciting referral has to go to:

'how to make a man come from his arse'

As far as I can tell, that last one came from someone's mobile phone in Australia. We're certainly an inquisitive nation. Who knows, it might have been one of our world renowned physicists looking at developing a new technique for asexual reproduction using a quantum method of cloning.

Maybe not.

I didn't try looking up the actual post, but I don't think it was me. I really don't.

Actually Angie, I think it's more important to know what Crimespace post actually brought them here with that search. I don't want to know!

Hmm. So you don't wanna fess up for the "how to make a man come from his arse" search, do ya? And can I just say...Ewwwww! This is one time where I wish I had a less active imagination!
