AusHealthIT reaches 200 Posts!

Well, to my amazement we have reached 200 posts on the blog. I thought that might make a good moment to report back to readers what is being read, how often etc.

As of 3pm 17/06/2007 the site statistics (since site metering was initiated in September, 2006) are as follows:


Total 14,549

Average Per Day 99

Average Visit Length 2:36

This Week 692


Total 23,952

Average Per Day 165

Average Per Visit 1.7

This Week 1,156

The 30 day moving average of page views is showing a healthy upward trend – allowing for the weekend drops – so I am encouraged to continue typing!

The major sources of visits are as follow:

Australia 66%

United States 12.3%

Unknown 5.0%

United Kingdom 3.5%

Canada 3.2 %

Rest of the World 10 %

The article that has had the most impact to date with 195 visits and almost 400 page views was the short comment posted a week or two back entitled “There is Hope!”. I must admit to being surprised by that.

What I take from all this is that there is considerable interest in the news and associated commentary from the blog and that there is considerable interest in keeping an eye on some of the more dubious initiatives in the e-Health space.

Comments as always welcome – as are suggestions and tips regarding other topics that may be explored.

Thanks for reading!
