2012 Review - Porn n'Chicken

To the point!
Instead of doing one of those “here’s what to expect in 2013” pieces that everyone loves to do, I decided to revisit my stats from the past year. Blogger has gone through some substantial upgrades allowing their users to be more in-tune with their readers needs.

Apparently my readers are interested in porn and video games. Do we need anything more than that in this world to be happy? Nope! Those were the top two searches within my blog and outside of my blog. Sorry guys. I can only really provide ½ of that content. But yes, “game porn” and “porno game” were the top searches. I can only remember one entry where I used “porn” as a search term, and that would have been during my very first month of posting; the game was Rapelay that CNN was boasting about it harming children, and all of the usual boring mess. I remember that article because one of their interviewees came out and said “Look, this game hasn’t been out in the public for years, and you all just made a big deal about it. Now kids are going to look it up, so really it’s your fault CNN.” Made me laugh.

Oh wait. I found another. The Misti Dawn story from Kotaku. That was a waste of space for Kotaku and me. Though I did find an appropriate image for the post, so I guess that makes up for it. 

Referring URLS and Sits are mostly Google. But then I saw this “VampireStat.com” and “Zombiestat.com.” What the crap? They’re pretty high up there but they are domain services that rank your site. I guess if you’re a Zombie or a Vampire ranking you’re dead. >.>

Audience views always interests me. I’m surprised by who is coming to check out my blog. The U.S. takes the field followed by the U.K. But you know who’s in third? Russia. Of all of the places, I would have never guessed Russia. Maybe South Korea or Canada, probably Brazil, but Russia? Wow. That is surprising. Why? Because I didn’t think my blog would appeal to Russians. After that it’s Canada, Germany, Brazil, Australia, and the Philippines.

Now onto blog views. There are two ways to look at these stats: basic page views and individual post views. The page views will, of course, vastly outnumber the blog views. Most of you come here on a daily or weekly basis and look through what I have on the front page. I’ve always wanted my blog to be easily accessible; nothing fancy that requires a ton of clicking to get to one post. If you can’t find it, there’s a search bar. Done.

But of course, that doesn’t tell me what stories people are interested in. I have to use the post views. Something about these posts compelled you people enough to click on them.  I’ll list the top 5:



 
I’m sensing a theme in all of this.  As for my Let’s Play Series and Mass Effect follow-up posts have generated over 5,000 unique page hits. That’s, wow. You people and your Mass Effect. You’re ok with me constantly talking about it? Because I don’t mind discussing my unnatural love for Tali. It’s totally cool with me.

Thanks everyone for your continued support. I’ll keep blogging away about this hobby I love. But now I know, you all clearly want porn, video games, Star Wars, and Disney. That sounds like a wonderfully bad movie.
