Blog stats for the ScicommJobs Posterous blog

One of the nice things about Posterous is that it tells how (in real time) how many times a particular post has been viewed – everyone can see this whenever they click on an individual post.

The numbers of ‘hits’ for the posts on this blog varies considerably and seems to go in cycles (possibly the more massive hit rates have something to do with Google indexing) varying from tens to hundreds up to several thousand. There are a few topping 5,500 in the list below but most are several hundred or much less.

Can’t see much opportunity for any correlations to be drawn from these, either the nature of the job or the time of year it was published, or even the time of day I posted it to the blog. You might think that the longer a post has been there the more hits it might accrue – I think this explains some of it (some of the earlier posts have over 8,000 views) but not all as cleary some older ones have fewer hits than some more recent ones.

Blog stats from now until 7 September 2011 (going backwards). I wanted to pick enough to be illustrative and so just scrolled back for a few pages on the ‘Manage’ bit that only I can see.

The ‘hits’ is the number to the right of the timestamp in each case.
