Note: Robots include search engines, spiders and aggregators. I still don't have an accurate way to track usage of the RSS feeds (and the raising power of online aggregators don't make those things really easier to analyse, at least not yet without digging into the log files.)

Main totals and daily averages

    Total   Avg. Day   Cur. Day
Visits   1,570,807   8,679   9,595

Page Hits   2,001,902   11,061   12,576

Errors   272,020   1,503   2,044

Also for those 6 months, unique hosts totaled 264,311.
Note: "Cur. Day" are daily averages for the last 7 days of June.

Since the launch of padawan.info 3 years and 7 months, I've published 892 entries that received 1104 comments on my English blog, some 1255 links on my "Food for Thoughts" linksblog, plus 643 entries that received 3399 comments on my French blog. (Note: I disabled TrackBacks a year ago because they're still dead to me.) The ratios of comments/entry remain stable at 1.2 in English but up in French to 5.3 (from 4.4 in 2005) — it's tempting to attribute that again to our legendary "grande gueule", but it's more likely related to the release of my book on business blogging (Blogueur d'entreprise) in January, which garnered excellent feedback, plus the fact that the French represent my biggest audience (need to look up the figure).

Comparing the monthly metrics between Dec 05 and Jun 06, the trends are: +43% in page views, +36% hits, +36% visits, +13% unique hosts, +130% bandwidth (don't tell my host!).

So it looks like the figures keep improving for the third year in a row, which is nice. You can see my statistics for 2005 for a comparison.
