It’s time for another landmark. The blog has just hit 2,500,000 views (taking three weeks less than the previous half million increment) – here’s a little breakdown on the numbers.

First the top five across the lifetime of the blog:

AWR / Statspack menu 40,714 Updated from time to time
NOT IN 33,983 Feb 2007
Cartesian Merge Join 29,633 Dec 2006
dbms_xplan in 10g 28,831 Dec 2006
SQL Profiles (10g) 21,227 Feb 2007

If we look at just the last year, the top five are:

AWR / Statspack menu 18,782 Updated from time to time
NOT IN 8,916 Feb 2007
dbms_xplan in 10g 6,212 Dec 2006
Oracle Core 6,181 Dec 2011
Analysing Statspack (1) 5,924 Nov 2006

The Cartesian Merge Join has finally been pushed off the top 5 in recent history, but perhaps that’s only a temporary effect while the Addenda to Oracle Core is still fresh in people’s minds. It’s interesting to see how many old articles are still popular reading, though.

The other statistic of note is the number of followers the blog has, currently: 828

  2. Does your follower count adequately account for those of us who use, e.g., Google Reader as their viewer? I figure they only use one HTTP connection to poll your RSS feed for however many of their users are subscribed.
