2009 In Retrospect

As we’re now getting a bit more touchy and feely about 2010, I’ll give a short update on the blog itself like I did at the last day of 2008 (and even the title has been recycled! again! The big trend of 2009!).

Key statistics (last year’s number in paranthesis) (2008 was the first year I blogged, so 2009 is the first complete year of data):

  • Most spammed month: May, 4123 (November)
  • Technorati Authority: 99 (13)
  • Technorati Rank: 78.215 (454.532)

At least two weren’t Google!

Stats I didn’t include last year, but decided to include this year (the numbers for last year in paranthesis as above) from Google Analytics:

  • Page Views: 49.403 (21.997) (+125%)

Most popular search terms (and some of the most popular posts):

  2. svn external
  3. ssh_exchange_identification: connection timed out
  4. solrj example
  5. tortoise svn externals
