Browsing the internet today, I came across a site that was suppose to estimate my traffic.

It grabbed my attention, so I ran it to the test.

14,200 Visit's ??? Hmm, let me check that against my records.
My Totals in the last 5 months were 33,481 reader's visited this site. To get this number, you have to add all the numbers together in the chart above. The average was 6696 readers a month (33481 divided by 5 months). I did this to make sure I have a "Good Average" number to run with. It is necessary for our calculations below.

Lets try another source, to check for accuracy. GeoMaps.

GeoMap reports 11801 visitors in in 3 months (more accurately 7 days short of 3 months) average of 3393 readers per month.

Wow , look at the difference between reports. Our log graph shows 17,318 for 3 months while GeoMap shows 11,801
a difference of a whooping 5517 readers !

Lets chart our 3 Month Totals for easy viewing

Then lets break it down even more, since our chart does not show exactly what I am looking for.

The above chart shows our average readers per month from 3 different sources. As we can see there is a big difference in the numbers. Our logs fall conservatively in the middle while our Traffic Estimator is only off by 7,504 readers. Not even in the ball park !

In addition, GeoMap is way out there as well. I was unaware of this until today. I did question the accuracy of that when I posted it online, but I also took inconsideration the totals might take sometime to update.

The difference from our logs to GeoMap was 3,303 readers per month. This is not satisfactory for a number cruncher ! This widget might be removed from this site. We will wait for an Email response from them. I was using it to calculate the readers not living in the U.S.

I think it is safe to assume, my oversea readers are much higher than being reported.

The Traffic Estimator projects more than twice our actual traffic. I understand this is an estimate, but the "Guess" is not even close.

Bottom Line : Do not even bother with this site. If you want to check your own accuracy , you can find them here.

You have read our report, see how close you come, and drop us a note below if you wish to. (do not worry about spamming)

Enjoy !

Hmm, I'm not entirely sure my statcounter only started 17 days ago.. and traffestim counts 30 days.

Does visits mean unique readers or page loads?


Blogger OS9USER Says ...…

Statcounter uses both cookies and IP addresses for tracking.

Returning Visitors - have to be gone atleast an hour or more, to be counted. Nice ! (Cookie Expired)

Page Load - The number of times your page has been visited. Again, New IP and no cookie , increase's this count by one.

If an IP has been seen before, with no cookie (or expired one) it is counted as returning visitors.

I have been using them for about 18 months now, with no problems what-so-ever.

Currently I run 3 tracking scripts to tell me where my readers are coming from, and what they are searching for. Kinda gives me an idea what to write about , or what is hot on the internet today.

I hoped this answered your question, sherry !

Enjoy !

I've been using statcounter for 15 months too with no hassle, but I rarely check it to see what's hot.

Have you written about google analytics before? Some people say it gives google too much power to see everything, but others say it's the best tracker out there.

I've tried it once for a few days, didn't quite like it and removed it
