As we pass into 2015, we've created year-in-review summary pages in the Labs area for the MeFi Stats 2014 and Popular Amazon Links in 2014. [more inside]
Today I wanted to unveil a new subsite featuring some experiments with our data called MeFi Labs. [more inside]
Some metrics: 50,000 posts and 1.24 million comments since July 14, 1999 = 20.5 posts per day or almost one post per hour, 511 comments per day or about 1 comment every three minutes for the last 6.75 years.
I posted MetaFilter stats for December, and made a separate page for all the previous stats, with a graph of pageviews for the past year.
March 2001 stats. The second most popular search term is especially interesting. heh.
Web Stats for February, in case you were wondering.
January stats, in case you were wondering.
I hope this doesn't come off as pompous or anything, I just wanted to show everyone the metafilter stats for November. A few things to note: the times are in GMT, so they're 8 hours behind the real time (there isn't a 9am lull in requests, that's actually a 1am lull, PST). I started keeping track of bytes transferred about half way through the month, so the data transfers are off. 330,000 page views is pretty wacky though. As usual, the search requests are mostly disturbing. I don't want to meet most of the people doing those searches.
