From the Web Site Report Archive (2006)

For a long, long while, starting in 2002 when I could finally get reliable web stats about this site, I obsessed about “my” web analytics. How many visitors?  What browser did they use?  What were they looking for?  I published monthly summaries (which wasn’t all that obsessive, given how it led me to regular site improvements) and provided commentary.  I stopped in late 2010, when it became more of a chore than a fun thing to do.

By 2018, the site reports were cluttering the site with low-value content, and (after making a backup) I decided to clean up and delete those old reports.  Still, there were a few snippets worth preserving here, either for historical value, a few chuckles or a glimpse at old-school webmastering.  Here it goes, copy-and-pasted more or less chronologically from 2006, with additional commentary in [italicized brackets]:

 

January 2006

Here are the monthly highlights for christian-sauve.com:

 

1. Mmm. Numbers…

My prickly “Urchin” web stats engine tells me that…

Report for: christian-sauve.com, January 2006 Total Visitors: 6,207
 Total Pageviews: 13,167
 (Corrected Total: 8,776) Total Hits: 14,851

 Average Visitors Per Day: 221.67
 Average Pageviews Per Day: 470.25
 (Corrected Average: 283.1)
 Average Hits Per Day: 530.39

The “corrected” numbers take out the CSS, robots.txt, PDFs, mis-filed graphic files (ICO, GIF, JPG) and other non-public files mistakenly considered “pages” by the statistics pre-digestion engine. All results are a bit higher than last month, despite three days’ worth of missing web logs. (Grrr.)

Our top ten most popular pages are:

Few changes this month. Movie material continues to be a top draw.

If you care about such things, (and who would not?), here’s a look at browser statistics for the month (by visitors, last month’s results in parentheses):

No new links this month.

 

3. Ohh! Visitor comments!

Rummaging through our mailbox, we see a test message and an empty one, but also…

 

1. Kevin Lenagh (co-author of the highly enjoyable Contacting Aliens) wrote to say thank you about my review of the book and confirm a number of suppositions. A summary of his comments is to be found appended to my review.

 

2. A reader from Texas writes to ask…

I used to get movie tickets all the time in Dallas. Now that I’m in Houston, I can’t seem to find out where I can just go pick up tickets. Do you know of a way for me to attain this information?

Sorry, no: Everything I know is in the article.

3. Ohh! Visitor comments!

February was a good month for reader reactions to my reviews. Rummaging through our mailbox, we see…

 

1. A reader from Ontario raves about my take on Wright’s The Golden Age Trilogy.

I have just read your review of John C. Wright’s Golden Age Trilogy. I glad I’m not the only one who liked this wonderful endevour. (…) Your review brought the trilogy back to me and I think it is one of the few books that I could read again. There are so many ideas there that I probably missed some the first time.

Enjoy your reviews in general.

 

2. Here’s a pseudonymous correspondent on my review of Charles Stross’ Accelerando.

Thanks for your review of Accelerando. You were right: it’s great. I see myself reading all of Stross soon.

 

3. On a more serious note, my pan of Gingrich & Forstchen’s infamous 1945 got noticed by one of the authors, who made a number of excellent points regarding the true authorship of the finished product. You can read about it as a post-scriptum to the review.

March 2006

Here are the monthly highlights for christian-sauve.com:

 

1. Mmm. Numbers…

My prickly “Urchin” web stats engine tells me that…

Report for: christian-sauve.com, March 2006 Total Visitors: 9,920 Total Pageviews: 22,400 (Corrected Total: 13,802) Total Hits: 25,243 Total Bytes Transferred: 461.5MB Average Visitors Per Day: 320 Average Pageviews Per Day: 722.58 (Corrected Average: 445.2) Average Hits Per Day: 814.29

The “corrected” numbers take out the CSS, robots.txt, PDFs, mis-filed graphic files (ICO, GIF, JPG) and other non-public files mistakenly considered “pages” by the statistics pre-digestion engine. All results are significantly higher than last month; see below for reasons why.

Our top ten most popular pages are:

christian-sauve.com/index.html                    524 christian-sauve.com/texts/free-movie-tickets.htm  323 christian-sauve.com/reviews/2001/books01b.htm     214 christian-sauve.com/texts/worldcon-2004-noreascon4.htm 201 christian-sauve.com/about.html                    172 christian-sauve.com/reviews.html                  160 christian-sauve.com/reviews/movies-2001.htm       132 christian-sauve.com/writings.html                 131 christian-sauve.com/ccntact.html                  129 christian-sauve.com/francais/index.html           122

Few changes this month, except for the unexpected presence of reviews from February 2001 (see below). Movie material continues to be a top draw.

If you care about such things, (and who would not?), here’s a look at browser statistics for the month (by visitors, last month’s results in parentheses):

Netscape|6   5774 (2491) Explorer|6   2244 (1772) Googlebot|2  503 (307) Netscape|2   293 (new) msnbot|1     245 (new)

Netscape|2? Whuut?

 

2. Where do these people come from?

Our top five sources of referrals (in visitors) were

google.com/search    791 (675) www.google.ca/search 228 (197) wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fifth_Horseman 104 (new) yahoo.com/search      79 (54)  google.co.uk/search   75 (75)

That Wikipedia mention is a shock, right? Well imagine my surprise when I saw it early in March and discovered that it lead to a copyright violation notice about Wikipedia’s article on the Lapierre/Collins thriller The Fifth Horseman. Apparently, some clueless idiot had copy-and-pasted my review of the book as a Wikipedia entry. As regular readers of my reviews already know, Neutral Point of View isn’t one of my specialities: The offending article was detected and then, according to Wikipedia convention, flagged as a copyright violation and thendeleted a week later. I’ve always been impressed by Wikipedia, and their collective behaviour in resolving the issue is admirable. Bravo!

A number of other links were spotted this month, with the best one being a mention of my “Free Movie Guide” at http://fxblader.wordpress.com/2006/03/11/ a-short-guide-to-free-advance-movie-screenings/ :

Christian Sauve has a some great tips for how to get free movie tickets. The article, A Short Guide to Free Advance Screenings, is an oldie but goodie — last updated 2003, it is optimized for Ottawa, but applicable everywhere.

 

3. Ohh! Visitor comments!

A deluge of mail landed in the christian-sauve.com mailbox in March. Judge for yourself:

 

1. An anonymous coward writes to say… (censored for your pretty eyes:)

you should write your own book if you can do better, you peice of sh*t

Classy!

As it turns out, my “anonymous” correspondent forgot that I had access to my server logs, which include his non-so anonymous IP address and the path to and through my site. After investigation, it turns out that “anonymous” is not an author (thought that would have been sweet), but some guy Googling for, of all things, “term limits vince flynn screenplay”. (It also turns out that “anonymous” hails from Des Moines, Iowa and uses Mediacom as an ISP, but that’s another story.)

What really makes me giggle is that in nearly ten years of reviewing, my review of Vince Flynn’s Term Limits may be the only one where I complain that the story’s political stance isn’t right-wing enough. As reviews go, it’s also somewhat positive: If “anonymous” flipped out about that particular review, his head would probably explode upon reading some of my subsequent material…

 

2. I get all sorts of questions, but Ben (from Boston) sent one that was actually interesting:

I really want to hold a screening of the documentary, March of the Penguins, but I do not know how to retain the rights cheaply and easily. Can you give me a list of possible discount movie- rights lenders. My charity organization, (…) is interested in holding a screening of this movie for charity and need you help on information. Thank you so much!

After some research, here’s what I sent:

Though I’ve arranged for public screenings of movies before, keep in mind that my experience is valid for Canada only:  In my case, I’ve had a very good experience with Audio Cine Films (http://www.acf-film.com/) in arranging for what is called a “public performance license”. (…)  Also in Canada, http://www.criterionpic.com/ is also in the business of granting public performance licenses, though their selection is far smaller.

Now, none of that helps you given how you hail from Boston.  I’m not familiar with licensees in the US, but a cursory web search shows that both http://www.mplc.com/ and http://www.swank.com/ are in that business.  Of the two, I believe that swank.com is the most appropriate choice for you: Not only does MPLC seem more concerned with umbrella licences, but Swank.com has a special area for college campuses; chances are that they’ll be able to answer your questions.  They may also be able to point you in the right direction in acquiring promotional material for your showing. (…)

I have no clue whether that figure I mentioned above is comparable to the price you will be quoted: These things vary by year, planned audience, profit/non-profit or setting.  (Though, curiously enough, not by movie.)

Finally; if you think that current system makes little sense and seems designed to exploit anyone who just wants to show a movie, join the club and lobby for copyright reform.  (But in the meantime, pay the license fee…)

 

3. On the other hand, how do you answer a question like this?

I am an Egyptian journalist. Thank you for the Science Fiction link. I would like to ask you a favour: could you please send me a site address where to find French films tackling French joournalists in the Sixties? I would be trully grateful.

Eh? My feeble attempt at an answer:

Unfortunately, I don’t know of any French film about French journalists during the sixties: There are probably a few, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one.  I think that Jean-Luc Goddard made a few movies in the sixties featuring journalists: Check out MASCULIN FEMININ and MADE IN THE U.S.A.

 

4. My attempt to explain SOLARIS continues to win raves:

I just finished watching So
laris for the first time. I did understand the majority of the film- the ending did confuse me though. That is until I ready your commentary. I see how they left it open to the viewers imagination. I didn’t get that at first, and your description of the film clarified it for me. I guess I’m just used to modern films dictating emotions with straight cut stories that leave nothing to the imagination. I will admit that Solaris is not the type of movie to see in the theater, but I is an excellent rental if you are open to thinking during a movie. Thank you for your opinions and commentary, it is greatly appreciated. Keep up the good reviewing.

Not much to say here. Can you tell people are still puzzled by SOLARIS even four years later?

Yeah, well today is a dream and tomorrow is a promise. Have a nice day.

 

April 2006

Here are the monthly highlights for christian-sauve.com:

 

1. Mmm. Numbers…

My prickly “Urchin” web stats engine tells me that…

Report for: christian-sauve.com, April 2006 Total Visitors: 8,739 Total Pageviews: 29,986 (Corrected Total: 15,287) Total Hits: 38,861 Total Bytes Transferred: 836.2MB Average Visitors Per Day: 291.3 Average Pageviews Per Day: 999.53 (Corrected Average: 509.6) Average Hits Per Day: 1,295.36

The “corrected” numbers take out the CSS, robots.txt, PDFs, mis-filed graphic files (ICO, GIF, JPG) and other non-public files mistakenly considered “pages” by the statistics pre-digestion engine. All results are significantly higher than last month; see below for reasons why.

Our top ten most popular pages are:

christian-sauve.com/index.html                         910 christian-sauve.com/texts/free-movie-tickets.htm       363 christian-sauve.com/texts/solaris-explanation.htm      272 christian-sauve.com/texts/worldcon-2004-noreascon4.htm 246 christian-sauve.com/reviews/2006/...02february.html    225 christian-sauve.com/reviews.html                       186 christian-sauve.com/about.html                         179 christian-sauve.com/texts/100films.htm                 134 christian-sauve.com/texts/worldcon-2003.htm            133 christian-sauve.com/links.html                         132

Few changes this month, except for the unusually high ranking of reviews from February 2006 (see below). Movie material continues to be a top draw. The Solaris Explained page got a predictable boost from SOLARIS showing on IFC this month.

If you care about such things, (and who would not?), here’s a look at browser statistics for the month (by visitors, last month’s results in parentheses):

Netscape|6 4259 (5774) Explorer|6 2721 (2244) Explorer|5  380 (new) msnbot|1    304 (245) msnbot|0    234 (new)

Hmmm… a lot of msnbot, not much Googlebot.

 

2. Where do these people come from?

Our top five sources of referrals (in visitors) were

 google.com/search    847 (791) www.google.ca/search 217 (228) google.co.uk/search  171 (75) google.com/imgres    135 (new) ask.com/web           81 (new)

This being said, the real links story is to be found lower down the list. Thanks to the Technorati visibility of my blogging at fractale-framboise.com, two authors followed the links and found “translated” version of my reviews that they could understand. (They’re entirely different reviews, damnit, but I’m not bitter.)

This led Tobias Buckell (great guy; met him on April 1st at Toronto’s Ad Astra convention) to mention my review at www.tobiasbuckell.com/wordpress/?p=2133 which follows-up on the original message at www.tobiasbuckell.com/wordpress/?p=2112 :

The group blog Fractale Framboise has a review of Crystal Rain up by Christian Sauve (sorry I can’t get the accent over the e there, I can’t seem to find the HTML code on hand quickly) who I was lucky enough to meet in Toronto this weekend. Based on his comments there and on this blog he seems to have liked the book.

I just like that the review is in French.

A similar process of link-following from Fractale Framboise to here led John Scalzi to my review of The Ghost Brigades, which ended more or less on

When will Scalzi try his hand at a more ambitious project? As coldbloodedly professional as he appears to be in his approach to his career, I doubt that he will suddenly drop everything else to produce an insanely ambitious 500-page work of art ready to challenge, say, Ian McDonald’s River of Gods. But I wonder.

This led to Scalzi commenting (at length) my musings on his next projects as a weblog entry at scalzi.com/whatever/004149.html

But in response to Sauve’s question: The direct answer to his question is “soon,” although soon in publishing is not the same as “soon” in the real world, since the project I’m thinking of has yet to be written and won’t see the light of the bookstore until late 2007 at the earliest.

I had the good luck of seeing Scalzi mention my review right after another (more severe) review of Ghost Brigades, with the lucky consequence that Scalzi’s commenters spent more time discussing the “bad” review than taking mine apart. Whew!

But just to show that one can never completely escape third-generation commentary, another blog at mrissa.livejournal.com/276953.html summed up my final questions as…

someone was saying they were wondering when [Scalzi would] do something ambitious

…and then grabbed the ball as the kernel of a rant on how YA writing is not unambitious at all. Well, yes. But seeing my review making a small splash in the blogosphere is what fascinates me most of all.

This ripple-effect ended up making me wonder how many cumulative hours of worldwide productivity I ended up consuming that particular day. It’s one thing to waste my evenings writing reviews… it’s another to realize that other people are spending time reading and responding. I feel guilty –but only slightly.

No other links were discovered this month… but that’s more than enough already.

 

3. Ohh! Visitor comments!

One general-interest message in my mailbox this month. Here it is:

 

1. After reading my review of Airforce One is Haunted, in which I wondered what had happened to author Robert Serling, an anonymous but helpful visitor wrote to say…

Author Robert J. Serling is alive and well and currently resides in Arizona.

(The review was duly annotated.)

 

…and that’s it.

As mentioned previously, the Independent Film Channel showed SOLARIS in April 2006. You can imagine how my “Solaris Explained” page got popular all of a sudden.

 

May 2006

Ready for another look at the hum-drum routine of a practically unknown web site? Here are the monthly highlights for christian-sauve.com:

3. Ohh! Visitor comments!

A small flurry of activity in my mailbox this month. Here it is:

 

1. Hazel, from Vancouver, writes to ask…

How can I get ahold of a movie for a group viewing early? I’m talking red carpet event minus celebrities.

My answer:

It depends what you mean by “early”.

If “early” is somewhere between the theatrical release of the film and its release on DVD, specialized businesses such as http://www.acf-film.com/ (Canada) or http://www.swank.com/ (US) can help you organize group screenings.  Contact them with details of your group (profit or non-profit, venue, number of attendees, etc.) to discuss the fee.

If “early” is somewhere before the official theatrical release of the film, then you will have to find out which studio distributes the film that interests you (check out the IMDB.com listing) and then contact the publicity department to arrange a screening.  After that, every situation is so different that common rules do not apply: Naturally, the studio won’t want anyone to scoop the official premiere of the film, nor release the film to a small and indifferent crowd.  Your chances of hosting such an event go up if your group has a link to the film (eg; “NYPD firefighters host a special advance screening of BACKDRAFT II” –think press release) or if you’re willing to compromise: in smaller markets such as Ottawa (500-900 thousand people), studios will often allow groups to “sponsor” the local advance screening for a fee, and in return the group gets a bit of publicity and a number of free tickets.  Once again, this type of arrangement if best discussed with the studio publicity department, which will consider every request according to their current requirements.

 

2. An anonymous correspondent keeps it short and sweet:

Go have a look. (What? It made me giggle.)

 

3. A pseudonymous correspondent from Ottawa (hey!) asks…

i read about your weight loss routine. i’d like to know whether you walked the 15 k every day from april to oct, after you had acclimatized yourself to the long distances.

Part of my answer…

Oh no: not every day.  I try to walk at least a brisk 15km walk *per week*.  Despite my best intentions, I can’t manage to find more time than that to spend on the walks.

Keep in find that as the season advances, I usually go for longer and longer distances for those weekly walks.

(I should probably clarify that in the original article)

 

4. Finally, Stan from Melbourne writes to say…

I do spend too much time on line, just waisting time. What the hell I found you

…but his email address bounced back when I tried thanking him back for the find words.

 

…and that’s it.

3. Ohh! Visitor comments!

Two messages received this month are worth an exercise in contrast. First someone, from somewhere, asks…

where can i buy the movie squirm 1976 it showed forward me reply

…then Anthony, from Florida, asks…

I am desparately trying to find the title of a movie that I can’t name. Please help.

The movie is like a sequel to “The Right Stuff”. Whereas “The Right Stuff” dealt with the space race prior to and up to the Mercury program, this movie takes off (no pun intended) from there. It deals with the space program in the Gemini and Apollo programs. I believe it was made in the same venue as “The Right Stuff”, possibly by the same producers. What is the title of this movie?

Compare and contract indeed.

The first message can’t be bothered with even simple grammar, poses a question that presents no challenge (go ahead: type “buy squirm movie” in Google and see where it takes you. That’s right: Amazon. US$12.99) and can’t even be bothered to include an email address where I can reply. Sometimes, I swear, I think we should have warning signs over computers: You must be this smart to use the Internet.

Meanwhile, my second correspondent is reasonably well-written, provides enough information to make the question a challenge and even includes a correct email address where I can reply. My best guess for an answer, off the top of my head:

Couldn’t this be the 1998 HBO 12-part miniseries From the Earth to the Moon?  It roughly stands between The Right Stuff and Apollo 13 in terms of content, and was produced by many people who worked on the latter film.

3. Ohh! Visitor comments!

A few comments here and there

1. Pseudonymous correspondent “alabamer” sends extra information about the subject of one review:

Reading the articles/review on Frank Camper inspired me to let you know something more about him.

(…snip…)

(Regarding the snip: I’m never too sure how much information to share about third parties. A Google search for “frank camper” and “retroracing” can sate your curiosity through public sources.)

2. Jesse from Austin, TX wonders…

Hey I am Just dropping in a few lines to say How can I get a free movie passes i never can never when them on radio/ or arrive early to get them on time @ diff. places giving them out…

…alas, everything I know is in the article.

3. Interestingly enough, I received two requests, a few days apart, asking about re-using some of the pictures I posted. First up was Xanthia, who wrote me as I was in Boston to ask…

I wanted to know if I could use your pictures of Boston.

…which was particularly amusing, given that I read his email while I was in Boston once again.

Then, four days later, Elizabeth asked…

I noticed that scattered amidst your report on 2005 Westercon you had some excellent photographs. I am planning a convention myself & could use a couple of extra photographs of the sort shown on your site.

Could I have your permission to use these photographs in my conference promotion? I could save them off the net if I have your approval.

In both cases, permission was granted without a fuss.

4. There was also a blank message and a spamming attempts, but those a hardly worth mentioning, right?

Those of you stil obsessing about the unusually-strong showing of the March 2006 reviews can stop wondering. All the credit goes to the DVD release of INSIDE MAN, which features both Samantha Ivers and Florina Petcu. I claim no special knowledge of their state of undress, but the March reviews do contain the line “Grotesque monsters, nude actresses, gory violence and foul subject matter are where Troma films start: it may be best not to imagine where they end.

So, more people are still coming to my site looking for nude pictures of a second-tier actress than there are who explicitly search for my name? Good grief…

Perhaps in your country it is, but up here in Canada we retained the original spelling.

(Although I must say that being called “silly goose” is wonderfully cute. I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face for about five minutes after reading this message.)

 

2. Tim Eldred, author of Grease Monkey, spotted my review of Grease Monkey and wrote in to say…

I just found and read your fabulous review of my graphic novel, Grease Monkey, and I wanted to throw a big fat thank-you atcha! Thanks for paying attention, giving it a chance, and spotting the hidden agenda therein! (I still vividly remember a comment from a colleague in the comics biz a few years ago: “How dare you write a fun comic book about nice people!”)

I had a feeling the earnestness would pay off if I just waited long enough.

Cool!

But don’t take our word for it: Go read Grease Monkey right now!

 

3. There was actually a very nice message waiting for me in the christian-sauve.com mailbox this month: Funny, warm, friendly. I took the time to answer in kind… and then the remote server bounced back my message, telling me that I was a suspected spammer and that it wouldn’t transmit my message.

The loss of hits from Google’s Image Search engine (imgres) can be attributed to me finally blocking their engine from scanning my images due to abuse by third-party hotlinkers. This also explains the significant drop in the overall statistics hits.

Otherwise, no new permanent links this months. (There were a few links to the Con*Cept schedules, but those time-sensitive pages are gone by now.)

Two changes worth noticing this month. The novel/index file is my daily NaNoWriMo blog, which apparently found a modest audience. The surprising inclusion of last September’s reviews will be explained later, as proof that controversy works well in attracting hits, even though the trade-off is being dismissed as offensive.

If you care about such things, (and who would not?), here’s a look at browser statistics for the month (by visitors, last month’s results in parentheses):

 Netscape|6  3994 (3804) Explorer|6  2281 (2751) Explorer|5  399 (339) msnbot|1    360 (318) Netscape|2  284 (new)

As dismayed as I am with the presence of Netscape|2 on the list, I note with some satisfaction that Internet Explorer 7 is closely behind with 214 visitors.

 

2. Where do these people come from?

Our top five sources of referrals (in visitors) were

 google.com/search          1089 (1052) www.google.ca/search        338 (337) google.co.uk/search         125 (101) yahoo.com/search/images/view 69 (new) www.google.fr/search         63 (new)

Not much change there, though I will have to see how to block Yahoo’s Image Search Bot from indexing them: I have no problem with the concept of image search, but it usually means more hotlinking attempts by clueless bloggers.

This being said, there were at least two high-profile links to my September Book reviews this month:

First, Jo Walton read my review of her latest Farthing and linked to it from her blog, saying “Christian Sauve is fairly positive with reservations and clearly also knows fewer gay people than I do.” Well, true. Her commenters, on the other hand, weren’t so kind… but dozens of them came to visit.

The second case is more interesting. First, I started noticing a fair number of page requests coming from a forum at bksp.org. Going back to check the referring page was impossible: bksp.org is a gated writer’s community that requires members to pay $30US/year in order to access the forums. Digging down in my web log files, I noticed a number of things: First, that the page was pointing to my September 2006 reviews, and that a page request coming from a visitor searching for “phobos ty drago chris” had been made fifteen minutes before the hits started rolling in. Further poking around the bksp.org web site revealed that one of the authors associated with the community was one Ty Drago. Case closed; given that my review was harsh, I can imagine the discussion over there well enough.

Conclusion? A lot more people dislike me now than at the beginning of November. On the other hand –hey, hits!

Much to my surprise, I also found myself cited as an authority on the otherwise impeccable Wikipedia page for Robert James Baker. Yes, it’s true: some people put anything as a reference on Wikipedia.

 

3. Ohh! Visitor comments!

I blocked the spam messages that so perstered me in October and enjoyed the underrated bliss of a mostly-empty mailbox in November. My own test messages outnumbered the rest. And yet…

1. For perhaps the first time ever, I took the decision not to answer a message. It came in broken French and its nonsensical content (asking me for a “great producer”) simply triggered my Nigerian-scam alert. A further Google search for the email address did nothing to deactivate my alarm.

2. Another first: I received a message about my explanation of SOLARIS (2002) not thanking me for the walkthrough, but taking me to task for not noticing a detail. I still haven’t had time to check said detail (believe me, every day not spent watching SOLARIS is a day filled with happiness or, at the very least, two extra hours), but I included the detail in my explanation the hope that it can be useful to someone else.

 

4. Search Queries Oddities

(This being the section in which we take a look at the search engine queries used by various visitors to find christian-sauve.com)

Here are our top-ten queries:

 samantha ivers nude         21 free movie screenings       19 christian sauve             14 solaris explained           14 being canadian              12 billy madison movie script  11 free movie premiere tickets 11 advance screenings          10 sauve                       10 solaris explanation         10

I don’t write’em, I just see’em.

The world’s infatuation with a hypothetically-nude Smatha Ivers continues unabated. Having seen INSIDE MAN, I can understand… but would it be possible not to look for it on my site, please?

 

 

December 2006

Ready for another look at the hum-drum routine of an obscure web site? Here are the monthly highlights for christian-sauve.com:

 

1. Mmm. Numbers…

My prickly “Urchin” web stats engine tells me that…

Report for: christian-sauve.com, December 2006 Total Visitors:   10,076   Total Pageviews:  20,180   (Corrected Total: 12,137) Total Hits:     24,131   Total Bytes Transferred: 464.4MB   Average Visitors Per Day: 325.03   Average Pageviews Per Day: 650.96   (Corrected Average: 391.5) Average Hits Per Day: 778.41

The “corrected” numbers take out the CSS, robots.txt, PDFs, mis-filed graphic files (ICO, GIF, JPG) and other non-public files mistakenly considered “pages” by the statistics pre-digestion engine. All results are noticeably higher than last month.

Our top ten most popular pages are:

 /index.html                                 547 /texts/free-movie-tickets.htm               298 /about.html                                 232 /texts/worldcon-2004-noreascon4.htm         183 /reviews.html                               182 /reviews/2006/reviews-2006-09september.html 140 /reviews/movies-2001.htm                    134 /reviews/movies-2002.htm                    111 /texts/laser-vision.htm                     107 /texts/solaris-explanation.htm              107

The September reviews ranking is an echo of last month’s controversies. The rest is pretty standard, except for the laser-vision essay which has never ranked higher in previous months.

If you care about such things, (and who would not?), here’s a look at browser statistics for the month (by visitors, last month’s results in parentheses):

 Netscape|6  5851 (3994) Explorer|6  1833 (2281) Explorer|5  574 (399) msnbot|1    412 (360) Explorer|7  406 (New)

Let’s give a hearty round of applause to newcomer Explorer|7, hopefully a permanent fixture of this listing until Explorer|8. May it replace previous Explorer versions and banish forever the existence of Netscape|4.

 

2. Where do these people come from?

Our top five sources of referrals (in visitors) were

 google.com/search          1057 (1089) www.google.ca/search        310 (338) google.co.uk/search         101 (125) www.google.fr/search         51 (63) yahoo.com/search/images/view 42 (69)

Not much change there, and my updated robots.txt file telling Yahoo Image Search to stay away from my site doesn’t seem to have any effect yet.

It took longer than I expected, but Elisabeth Bear noticed my review of her Jenny trilogy and commented on it (rather graciously) on her blog. That made my “September 2006” reviews the most controversial installment ever, with at least three authors finding and commenting upon reviews of their work. I now live in fear, comforted by the extra riches of at least a dozen extra readers this month alone.

 

 

3. Ohh! Visitor comments!

A small but entertaining month in the mailbox this month. See for yourself:

1. In the “I’m not sharing those messages” category, I got a come-on to read a small magazine (sorry: no time) and an ex-teacher of mine made contact nearly fifteen years after I left high-school. Yay for the web and high-school updates!

2. In the “Frequently Asked Questions” category…

where can i get free movie permiere tickets for austin texas theaters?

Read the essay again.

3. Oh, wait, still about the free movie tickets essay…

WOW, you know what its funny because i am the same whan it comes to movies. Sometimes i even go more than one time a week. But my first thought is cool because i stay getting in the movies for free. If i can’t i will use someones tickets and call the theatre for free ones. I have vast connections and then its those times when you do have to pay(bummer). BUT with the things i know and the things i can do you might want to email me because we can reaLLY write a book.

Read the essay again. (Now updated with an abdication and contrarian opinions.)

4. Author Ryk E. Spoor wrote to gracefully acknowledge my mixed review of his Digital Knight and clarify a few points I raised. You can find a number of those clarifications as a post-scriptum to my review. Note to authors: I’m unusually susceptible to hand-selling techniques. I now have Spoor’s follow-up novel Boundary on my bookshelves, his note giving me the extra push to get a book I was leaning toward purchasing anyway.

5. Another person wrote in to ask whether I knew the whereabouts of his friend, ex-CIA spy Robert Baer. (A man whose books and active career partially inspired George Clooney’s Oscar-winning role in SYRIANA.) What can you answer to a request like that? I’m just a bookish shlub living in suburban Ontario, for goodness’ sake. “No!”

 

4. Search Queries Oddities

(This being the section in which we take a look at the search engine queries used by various visitors to find christian-sauve.com)

Here are our top-ten queries:

 samantha ivers nude         19 free movie screenings       15 solaris explanation         15 that bringas woman          11 advance screenings          10 free movie premiere tickets 10 good films                  9 solaris explained           9 being canadian              8 billy madison movie script  7

I don’t write’em, I just see’em.

The world continues to be fascinated by the possibility of a naked Samatha Ivers and my site benefits. Funny how that works.

It’s like getting a glimpse into the unanswered questions part of the noosphere, and it’s scary.
