"Some Ballet.co Stats"
 
   I was just having a cruise around when I came across some stats on another site and it reminded me that I haven't mentioned our stats for some while now. Well currently we are running at;

Hits in a month: 375,000
Total pages delivered in a month: 62,000
In a typical week we get visitors from 55 countries


Each week we update our site size stats and are currently running at:
625 pages of information
links to 950 reviews
links to over 300 Interviews, Views and News items
details of 450 performances (normally more)
And we currently have about 1700 postings on-line.
The total number of postings since we first got going is over 6,700 now.

No wonder we get tired at times!

Hits statistics are marvelous - they always look impressive!

Effectively a hit is registered when any file is sent out from a web site.

Now a file can be a graphic or the text on a page for example. So when a user calls up a web page it actually results in multiple hits on the server as first the text is loaded and then each of the graphics is fetched.

The 'real' statistic that people are interested in is how many complete pages have been given to visitors and that is the number I prefer to quote. But hits is a very web term and people read it or refer to it without always knowing exactly what it means - many people for example assume a hit is a complete page.

All sites are different and a simple web page might only generate 2 hits, whereas Microsoft pages might generate 20 or more (all those graphics!). We seem to generate about 6 or 7 hits per page delivered and most 'designed' sites would sit between 5 and 10.

So now you know!
