    You say you’ve got cookies on the BBK site that gives you his traffic; if that’s true it indicates that you’re not a technical neophyte.

    As we all know, the hits in the graphic above could be simply Daffy or Prufrock clicking in and out (and very likely is, given how they both love to post multiple comments per hour), which makes the hit count a very limited tool for assessing the traffic.

    So have you got any stats on unique visitors, returning visitors and other interesting information on this site?

    It’s interesting that the stats post was published by RealDaffyDuck but the statistics in the graphic were pulled up by BigDummyKenny (top right, next to the “Switch” button).

      Werewolf your not that fat! I like the beard quite handsome.

    • Whats’s ‘interesting’ about that?

      RDD: “hey, BigDummy, can you email me some screenshots of our stats?”

      BD: “here they are”

      (you’ve got mail).

      … I don’t understand the neophyte comment. That’s a big word. It confuses me.

    Sorry I confused you. I’ll repeat the question:

    “So have you got any stats on unique visitors, returning visitors and other interesting information on this site?”

    Ah! I thought it was you that offered the “unique visitor” numbers on the Kenny site in a previous comment, and I was wondering why you would know those unique visitor numbers but not the ones here.

    I went back and looked. It was Adman: “Only 18-21 unique visitors per day.” so that explains that.

    Maybe adman can provide the unique visitor count for BDK as well.

    What was “interesting” about the dynamic, to me, was that BDK, the administrator of the site, didn’t just post the blog himself while he was in the administration section taking the picture. It would have taken just a moment. Instead, he emailed it to you to post statistics about his site. Personally, it seems to be an unusual (and therefore interesting) relationship where the administrator emails statistics about the site to a reader to post them.

    • Look, you’re obviously insinuating something here — I really wish people would have the backbone to just say what’s on their mind, instead of making veiled allusions and insinuations. Do you think that’s possible?

      BBK stats are equally well available by extrapolation from several other tracking sites (like Alexa, for example), or some of the ad networks he was using (which are still tracking him). These aren’t options on a WP hosted site – albeit BigDummy probably uses some of the analytics services, but those stats are at his discretion.

      You asked me a direct question: “Whats’s ‘interesting’ about that?

      I offered a succinct and direct answer:

      What was “interesting” about the dynamic, to me, was that BDK, the administrator of the site, didn’t just post the blog himself…. Personally, it seems to be an unusual (and therefore interesting) relationship where the administrator emails statistics about the site to a reader to post them.

      I even posted this reply in its own separate comment to avoid distractions, and avoided using any big words so I wouldn’t confuse you again.

      I’m not sure I know what “allusions” or “insinuations” are, but I’m pretty sure I didn’t make any of them.

      I said what I meant and I meant what I said.

      At the Kenny site, the administrator has all but abandoned the site. The only thing of any note happening over there in recent weeks is the ongoing posting by Prufrock, who seems to be writing to you and a handful of sideline on-lookers like me.

      This site seems to mirror that, insofar as BDK appears to have largely abandoned it, leaving you to post and comment to your heart’s content, much as J. Alfred does at BBK.com.

      Basically, if Prufrock weren’t at the BBK site, it would be dead. Likewise, were it not for your presence on this site, it would be equally moribund (BDK’s last post appears to have been 25 Sept). So the “dummy” site continues to mirror the “kenny” site insofar as the warden is gone and the inmates have taken over the asylum as it were.

      The notable difference is that Prufrock remains solidly rooted in the comments section of BBK.com, while you have gradually expanded your role over the months from commenter to the “duck pond”, then to posting on the front page, and now to publishing the site statistics. It might not rank up there with Area 51 in terms of interesting things to pay attention to, but I take an interest in it. I find your relationship with BDK to be unique, and “unique” is “interesting” to me, even in the tiny world of this blog.

    • BigDummy is certainly not absent – or at least not as absent as Kenny is (who, as you observed, has all but abandoned his own site — the occasional ‘edits’ aren’t even originating from him).

      There’s recent comments from BigDummy abounding as well:

      https://bigdummykenny.wordpress.com/2010/11/01/dummys-guide-to-website-quality/comment-page-1/#comment-3632

      BigDummy generally keeps Bill Cooper honest by tagging his impersonated comments.

      I’ll leave it up to you to define for yourself what you consider ‘interesting’ – all I’m saying is that you could have asked without the conspirational insinuations (or the passive aggressive backpedaling), and I would have answered and responded just the same. Personally, I fail to see the suggestively interesting aspect of posting a screen capture of the WP stats – and, FWIW, I did ask BigDummy if he had more specific stats from any other analytics tracking sites, and if he can contribute those.

      In the interim, you’ll have to make do with more 9/11 articles or travel articles as they find their way here (though since Prufrock ran away back into cowardly hiding, maybe it’s time to conclude the 9/11 series with 1-2 summarizing and concluding articles.

  4. In the meantime, BBK traffic, retention, and time-on-site are continuing their decline (as if that were even further possible). Any more of this, and we’ll be holding a wake for BBK.com.

    Odd too how Pruf- “I shall not be mocked” -Rock has slunk away mid-sentence and mid-argument.

    Of course, probably just need to post a random pro-official-9/11-story sentence and he’ll be back, ready to be further mocked.

    The claims BBK was making wasn’t supported by the number of comments on his site. Then, as now, it was clear the same couple people were commenting under multiple screen names.

    I did a bit of digging. Found that 18-21 was the unique visitor count on Bigbabykenny v1.0, according to several web tracking sites.

    As with his “views by xxxx views unique visitor count” which appears on each post at BBK, so much of what he says is bullshit (the count is not unique visitors, it is total page views).
