Viewing Figures

Filed under: Site History — Jonathan Lewis @ 12:05 am BST Aug 4,2014

The day has just started in Singapore – though it’s just coming up to midnight back home – and the view counter has reached 4,00,009 despite the fact that I’ve not been able to contribute much to the community for the last couple of months. Despite the temporary dearth of writing it’s time to have a little review to see what’s been popular and how things have changed in the 10 months it took to accumulate the last 500,000 views so here are some of the latest WordPress stats.

All time ratings

AWR / Statspack 80,997 Updated from time to time
NOT IN 51,673 February 2007
Cartesian Merge Join 39,265 December 2006
dbms_xplan in 10g 37,725 November 2006
Shrink Tablespace 31,184 November 2006

Ratings over the last year

AWR / Statspack 13,905 Updated from time to time
AWR Reports 9,494 February 2011
Shrink Tablespace 8,402 February 2010
Lock Modes 8,221 June 2010
NOT IN 6,388 February 2007

The figures for the previous half million views (opens in a new window) are very similar for most of the top 5 although “Analysing Statspack (1)” has been pushed from 5th place to 6th place in the all-time greats; and “Lock Modes” has swapped places with “NOT IN” in the annual ratings. As the annual WordPress summary says: “… your posts have staying powere, why not write more about …”.

The number of followers has gone up from about 2,500  to just over 3,900 but, as I said last time, I suspect that there’s a lot of double counting related to twitter.
