||My Personal Observations and $0.02 worth:
- At the present time, iiNet don't provide server logs for their sub-domains (ie the chat.iinet.net.au). Server logs give statistics on what files and pages have been accessed in a web site, when they have been accessed, and how long for. Sometime in the near future I will be setting up a complete domain name (ie www.something.com) on another server, and then moving all my web sites to that domain name. The server logs that I will then get each week will show full statistics for accesses all all files in all my web sites.
- The consistency is excellent (ie the weekly averages don't fluctuate too much, although I have don't have a clue why the sites got the extra attention in July). I regularly look around web sites for other channels and find that for most sites someone has started out with heaps of enthusiasm at first but then lost interest as they discover that there's actually a heap of work involved in running a web site that needs constant updates. Hence the site is popular for a few months but becomes out of date after a few weeks. This web site started out with a lot of initial momentum, and that has been maintained.
- The meet photos site is the most popular of the lot, and it actually becoming more popular each month! So, for those individuals that get shitty at me for always taking photos at meets... Pfffffffffffft!!!! :-) Heck, I didn't do any meets photos for September or October, and the site still maintained a high weekly hits average!
- How are these web sites written? On an Apple Power Macintosh, using a web page program called GoLive CyberStudio. GoLive is available for both Mac and PC, and in my opinion is the best web page authoring program available. The text logos that you see (eg at the top of this screen) are all done with Adobe Photoshop, using Extensis plug-ins.
