Cyberpunkreview.com Usage Statistics
Just a word about usage statistics for cyberpunkreview: I’ve only been up since the middle of January, but I’m pretty thrilled about how much this site is already accessed. With less than two months under my belt, this site has already been accessed by over 8000 different people, many of whom come back and visit a number of times (over 18,000 visits total). In total Cyberpunkreview has had over 39,000 page views and over 291,000 hits (this number isn’t surprising, as each graphic counts as a hit).
So far in March, for instance, I’m averaging:
- 225 visits per day, with an average of 1.4 visits per visitor (meaning people come back more than once after their session expires)
- 684 pages viewed a day (so far over 6,100 for the month)
- 7855 hits a day - again, the vast majority of these hits are graphics, so am more interested in unique visitors and page views.
More exciting to me is the international participation this site seems to garner. While the US gets about 60% of the hits, cyberpunkreview gets really good participation from other countries - especially from the comments! Besides the US, the top 10 countries in terms of page views are:
- Great Britain
Additionally, there is significant access from a number of other countries, including Germany, the Czech Repulbic, Finland, Spain, France, Italy, Russia, Korea, South Africa and Brazil (and lots of others at smaller levels). In terms of total page views, the European Union (EU designator) actually shows up right after Great Britain, but I don’t know what this really means. I’m guessing that many of the smaller European countries are bundled up from ISPs to this category, but I really don’t know.
And to those of you who have commented on movies or the forum, I truly appreciate it! I am always looking for more though. If you have any thoughts or questions about some of the movies, please ask, and I’ll do my best to respond (I just remembered I have to add an interpretation to the ending of Casshern - I’ll do this later today).
In terms of search engine access, Google is by far the biggest referrer. Cyberpunkreview actually come up pretty high on a number of terms, to the point that I actually wonder if some cool soul over at Google has raised my profile past what it should be. For instance, if you just search for the actress “Mila Jovovich,” cyberpunkreview currently comes up in the top 5 search results. Cyberpunk review also comes up pretty high with some truly bizarre search terms - it’s almost scary looking at what people actually search for in order to find this place!
Most people tend to either use the RSS feed or use the Movies by Decade page to find movies. I am wondering if they are missing the other movie category pages on the right hand side, such as movies by star rating, or themes like android movies, et cetera, so I may do more to highlight these. My “What is Cyberpunk” page also comes up pretty high, as do two Japanese Cyberpunk screencap pages for obvious reasons - both pages NSFW - I.K.U. and Tetsuo the Iron - Man Page 2.
There are a number of movies that are continually accessed. Here are the heavy hitters:
- Testuo - The Iron Man
- Ghost in the Shell
- One Point O
- William Gibson - No Maps for These Territories
- Ghost in the Shell: Innocence
- Natural City
- Battle Angel
And again, if you’re interested in participating, especially for those looking to review other cyberpunk media, such as games, mangas, books, and so forth, please email me - I’d look to expand!
