When Stats Don’t Add Up

Interesting post by Big Island Resident Laura Kinoshita on her new blog entitled “News Blotter”.

In it, she tries to verify traffic to individual blogs on the Big Island.

I can say that as much as I like Laura… those stats don’t add up.

Here is what she listed:

The 10 most popular sites (and their estimated traffic per day) are:

Wordful.com                                   5,476

PunaWeb.org                                  3,388

BigIslandVideoNews                    1,171

FBI Blogs.com                                   636

DamonTucker.com                          588

Hahaha.hamakuasprings.com     497

BigIslandChronicle                          417

Mediabaron.com                             355

DarkerView.com                              238

Hawaii247.com                                 216


Yahoo, I’ve got two blogs in the top 10! ;)

The problem, I don’t believe these statistics one bit.  I see the hits coming in for both the Fbiblogs.com and damontucker.com and I know that my personal blog is getting more page visits then the Fbiblogs.com .

Another really startling and alarming statistic that Kinoshita blogs:

There are a few, very high-quality sites that receive less than 10 visits per day, according StatBrain…:

Alanmcnarie.blogspot.com

Apacificview.blogspot.com

Breeweehawaii.blogspot.com

Coconutgirlwireless.wordpress.com

Islandnotes.wordpress.com

Japaninsight.wordpress.com

Myhawaiianhome.blogspot.com

Thekonablog.wordpress.com

This simply isn’t true.  Bree Wee’s blog is probably one of the most visited blogs on the Big Island.  Some day’s she can have 50 comments on her posts alone.

The Kona Blog the last time Aaron mentioned it to me… was getting at least 200 – 300 visits a day.

And my blog… well, it fluxuates… but 588 page visits??? Please now… I haven’t had that few visits in one day in at least 4-5 months!

Laura is a great girl and I can’t wait for the go ahead to add her to the FBI Blogs!
