For the stats nerds, here are the GPL Web stats from 2022. All on a shared Google Sheet file.

View On Google

Unique visits up a lot again this year...

Washington state jumps from #10 to #2??? Knocking Illinois out of 2nd place after it was there for 7 years.

Had the most visits ever on 4/7 (beating a record from 2011) and #5 on 3/25.

Mobile now is 72% of all traffic.

Firefox and Edge/IE down even more.

 

I no longer get AWStats on a server level on the new server. So I only have numbers through December 12th. That stat will go away next year. 

Another thing is that Google Analytics is forcing us to use their new version 4 come July. I have had it collecting data for a few years, but it really sucks compared to their current version. So getting these numbers next year will be problematic.

Thanks, as always, Jup.

Interesting how the audience by state has changed.  Interest has become far more national and less regional over time, especially recently.  I wonder if that is because of the B1G's doing or whether it is a reaction to it.

It would be interesting what made Washington state jump from #10 to #2. Not just by passing one to three states, but 8.

Washington state seems quite odd. Do the Gophers have players drafted by Seattle?  There's no B1G team there. Very interesting.

Here is a dumb question by someone who knows little about how this stuff works. I notice that there are some bots that are listed being online at times on this site. Do they get classified by a location and could they be the reason Washington is high on the list? Or do you have to be a registered user to be included in these numbers?

I'm 50% factual and 50% sarcastic. When you get to know me, you will know which is which.

Not sure how many regular visitors (vs regular posters) use VPNs, but I know I mostly show up from Chicago, with Kansas City as the main alternate.

 Google knows what traffic are bots, so they do not get included in traffic numbers.

I added the top pages for 2022 to the Google Sheet. Getting the forum numbers are not easy since they are unique URL, but I think the numbers are fairly accurate on the aggregate total. We did have 3 message boards this year. (sorry)

The Transfer Portal was a huge addition this year and was very successful!

Interesting...

I was just looking at version 4 of Google Analytics and it says that Washington state was actually #7, not #2... What the hell?

 

EDIT: I just adjusted the numbers. it appears the newer Google Analytics 4 are more accurate.

Mobile now is 72% of all traffic.

Mobile is now 77.7% of all usage.

 

It's getting to the point where I may not worry so much about desktop and how it looks. Even though most of my personal usage is still desktop.

Please remember there are a lot of us old folks on the site who like to use all of their fingers when they type and remember when VT-100s were the way to use a computer. I'm a desktop guy whenever I can. Thanks for running the site.

In all the years I’ve been on here I don’t think I’ve ever accessed from anything other than mobile.

There are multiple places, but the community menu is a good place to start.

I do not have a way to test Edge on Android. But I know Edge works on Windows that I used for work. Here is a screenshot of the Community menu.

Yeah, I don't see those last 2 options on Chrome in Android.  When I am reading posts and I hit "Reply" (the button is there) nothing happens.  I hit "Quote" and nothing happens.  Not sure what is going on.  Desktop site works just fine.

I buy cheap "Disposable" cell phones because I'm cheap and have no use for a $1,000 phone.  So it is probably a me problem.

Uggg... I just have no way of testing for that to see what may be happening.

Just tested this out on my phone (Chrome on Android).  If I'm logged in, the "Login" and "Register" options on the "Community" menu aren't there.  If I manually log out, they do show up and let me log back in, so it sounds to me like if you're not seeing those options, it means you are logged in.  Don't know why the quote/reply buttons work, they've always been good for me (when I'm logged in).

This is correct. If you are logged in, it doesn’t makes sense to show those links. Just like when you are logged in, the user menu shows up and the logout shows up.

GPL is on FIRE!!!!!!

Success often comes from hard work and great leadership. We should ALL be able to agree these things definitely apply to Jup.

The only issue will be that come July 1st... Google will no longer use "Universal Analytics". Google Analytics 4 is the "new thing". And the numbers do not match up between the two. They define numbers differently.

 

For instance GA4 says we had 18000 users yesterday. In the old analytics they called is sessions. So they are different things? Oh well.

I went back to look what was happening on Nov 5 of 2011 - it was a Saturday night home win completing a sweep of ND.  It's interesting that it's the lone regular season occurrence from your first list.  Also it's interesting that the 2007 post-season is the only other besides the current one in the top 10 of your other list.

Maybe it's a user like me that has multiple tabs open, but aren't necessarily ON a certain tab at any given time? Example: I'll open Facebook, and have the tab open, but I'm browsing some other tab, or watching Netflix, whatever, and occasionally check in with FB...
