Hold your congratulation line, don't get too excited for me.

It may look amazing, reaching one thousand pageviews a day. In fact, the record seems to be 1,056 pageviews when one post got into reddit.

You can see there is a significant increase in last few days, that's when I made Disqus load with page, instead of load by a button click. I wanted Disqus Discovery, to be more precise, the related content since I had removed related posts. But it really came with a price, a bloated pageviews.

There were a lot of referrers:

Unfortunately, it's not like viewers click on related content and read another post of mine. Somehow, embed.js requests the page and more than once, sometimes:

I also checked on other website which has Discovery shown, same issue. If Discovery isn't shown, this won't happen. There must be a bug, because there is no need to load the page more than once. Well, it shouldn't be even once, actually. I can't really think of any reason for this.

Right now, I have reverted to button-loading Disqus. It's not worth to bother readers' browser to load unnecessary stuff. Disqus still loads a lot of stuff.

I always wondered if there is a strong relation between posts count and page views and I believed so, and there is, r=0.9473963054.

This blog was born on 4/16/10, but the first post (after imported on 9/27/10) was written on 9/13/08. So, the data is actually little complicated since a few hundreds of posts got imported in just one day. I set the starting date to 10/28/10, it should be enough.

The page views data is exported from Google Analytics and the post counts is calculated by a script I wrote before with some modifications, little help from command-line tools, then used LibreOffice to do final process and to chart this.
