more than no-one
Google analytics provides a ‘site overlay’ that shows your website with in-place click-through statistics. A geek like me will spend time wandering through such statistics saying ‘oOOoooo‘ and ‘Aaah‘ and ‘what does it all mean?‘
For 4 weeks, September 2009, Google analytics says that I had 4,681 ‘visits’.
I rashly infer that visitors want to know something about who is writing this nonsense (8.1% on who’s wendy) or are interested in finding food (0.3%), or why I’m bothering to write about anything at all (0.2%). Some people consider whether to comment, or why I might consider stopping people from publishing their commentson my blog, (0.1%).
More than no-one, some-one, is interested in who inspired me to blog ( >0.0%) while no-one wants to sign-up to receive notifications of my posting in thier RSS reader.
Here’s what Google Analytics says, in numbers, about what visitors click on:
- Scribbles (The Wendy House home page) = 5.9%
- Who’s Wendy = 8.1%
- Why Scribble = 0.2%
- Comment control = 0.1%
- Food foraging = 0.3%
- Credits = > 0.0%
- RSS = 0%
I prefer the notion of ‘somone’ over the numerical representation of more than no-one (> 0.0) looked at who I credit with inspiring my blogging. The relationship between significant (meaning) and signifiers (often numbers) is frequently obscure and sometimes misleading.
