Yesterday, The Doc File rolled over 50,000 page views. That seems like a nice thing, but since the statistics aren’t all that reliable, it’s hard to take much meaning from it:
- The Doc File has existed since the summer of 2006, and these statistics only go back to May 2008.
- Google Stats are not considered to be incredibly accurate.
- Of the 50,000 page views, roughly 30,000 of them have come this year alone.
- Google reports no stats to me from September 2008-August 2009 or September 2010-August 2011, so in addition to the nearly two years at the beginning of The Doc File’s run where I have no stats, there are two additional years in the middle where I have no stats.
So, if all of this is largely meaningless, why even mention it? It’s a good question, and I guess the only answer is that I’m one of those guys who gets excited by milestone numbers on the odometer of my car.
