Web Browser Stats

I currently have a 1 page site up for a nationally publicized missing person's case (Ray Gricar, missing PA district attorney http://www.raygricar.com). Given the very broad group of people that seem to be hitting the site, i thought I'd post the latest browser stats for the DIY website guys on here.

In the past 5 days there have been approx. 3,700 unique visitors:

Browser / Hits / Total Percentage

MS Internet Explorer 23,183 84 %
Firefox 2,412 8.7 %
Netscape 843 3 %
Safari 596 2.1 %
Mozilla 446 1.6 %
WebTV 34 0.1 %
Opera 27 0.1 %

And from an in-bound link standpoint and how it relates to search engine ranking, the site went from higher than 1,000 to #6 on Yahoo in 3 days and on Google from a similar rank to #2. This relevance hike was due to the number, and relevance, of the sites that featured the link in their reportings and articles (tv network sites, newspaper articles, blogs, etc).

As an update, 9,000 hits so far this month and the browser percentages are holding steady within a fraction or two.

BS, thanks for bringing this back up. I hadn't checked in a while, but just did.
Due to a large amount of media coverage in the last 2 days, the site has had 13,000 unique visitors in the last 2 days, and 45,000 or so, so far:

MS Internet Explorer 85.2 %
Firefox 7.7 %
Netscape 2.6 %

A hit is defined as a data request and every single thing on your site generates ONE hit, so:
When a visitor clicks a link to your site and your site receives the query, that's 1 hit. Then it loads the main page - another hit. Every graphic on that page = another hit. It is easy for one visitor to generate 10 or 20 hits on your site with just the initial click, on my site a million hits is only about 20 thousand visitors thou this IS a bit low, 100,000 hits could easily mean 5k visitors on an html-only site.

if that's directed at me, topsites, i'm actually referring to "unique visitors" and not hits. i noticed that i interchanged the usage between the posts, which is ironic because i can't recall the last time i even referenced the term "hits", as opposed to unique visitors. thanks for pointing that out.
