A few stats

Unreallikes this

I promised @JLB I’d post a few stats.

Here’s July’s numbers – not as many hits and partial plays as I’ve seen in the past. We need more people uploading clips to Youtube with links. Feel free.

Again, I don’t know you’re a listener until you email me or for a subscription – as low as $1.19/month!

    Thanks for publishing these statistics – the audience seems comprised of mostly members.

    You are welcome.

    What do you extrapolate from these numbers in terms of the number of listeners ?

    I’d say around 1000 on and off.

    If i understand these numbers right, they reflect one months download traffic directly from your website. There is a large difference between “hits” and “downloads”.
    •how is playing the audio directly in browser accounted for ?
    •what are “206 Hits” ?

    I think these are browser players. Most don’t finish and amount of data streamed indicates minutes.

    •are downloads from other outlets like iTunes included in these numbers ?

    ITunes is an aggregator. It doesn’t store files. All requests from iTunes reflect in downloads.

    As a longtime listener, i follow radioshows more closely than audio chats and i use mostly iTunes to collect the audio-files. Many of the shows like the early 911 broadcasts or the first flat earth discussion all have been up for a long while. Any idea of the total number of downloads for the “historically” most popular shows, maybe like FAK150-Globebusters or even Ep33-Simon Shack…?

    I would have to manually add up each month I think. I will research whether I can display by year to aid in this task.

    By the way, 176 radioshows is impressive ! The fact the audiochats* are not enumerated, i do not realise how many audios you have published total, but it might be impressive.

    Thanks. If anyone wants to count the 4 years of audiochats, I will start numbering them and possibly renumbering them backwards.

      Around a 1000 listens each episode represent very decent numbers.

      Regarding the audio chats, i now see that the category-specific RSS feed in the sidebar shows 341 audio chats listed…

      Not sure if that is proper counting – but it could be close to the actual amount of published audio chats if tagged* systematically as you seem to do.

      *maybe there is a wp Batch Rename sound files application that could make enumeration automagically in only a few clicks,,

    *maybe an idea to give audiochats a serial/tracking number (hard to reference these audio-chats as they often have the same names and only the date/time differ)
