While Alex usually does our "Fun with Google Analytics" posts, I thought I'd put up some of the interesting little tidbits you find out from looking at Bilerico's backend information from Aug 27 - Sept 26. There is so much data collected by the software that there's always something fascinating in the statistics when I go in and poke around. I'll try to highlight info that Alex doesn't usually post.
For example, while we know what states are usually in our top ten, what about cities? What does that map look like? The top US Cities/Metro areas sending us traffic last month were: (Clickety all graphics to embiggen)
- New York City*
- San Francisco**
- Washington DC
- West Hollywood
* Manhattan and Brooklyn combined
** San Francisco and Mountain View combined
Several of you have asked me about how much traffic we get from overseas. Here's the map and top 10 countries sending visitors to the Project.
- United States
- United Kingdom
- New Zealand
Here's the top 20 search terms visitors have used to find the Project. Commentor GregC and contributors Jerame Davis and Gina DeVries are popular!
- bilerico/bilerico project/the bilerico project
- furry porn
- sarah palin gay rights
- larry king
- palin gay rights
- sarah palin gay
- tennessee shootings
- sarah palin homophobic
- bilerico project planned palin
- fact check palin speech
- gina devries
- "transgender law center"
- jerame davis

But some of the strangest ones I noticed?
#822 - do gay guys use condoms? (Isn't that a question we've all asked too?)
#1,627 - "shit on his dick" raped me (Yuck. I don't know what they were looking for, but I doubt our post was it.)
#3,383 - free ipod animal sex (Okay, what!?)
#7,795 - the art of war in non military situations (I'd like to know what post this one went to! I could learn something!)
So what are the top ten posts on Bilerico Project of all time? These are the pages that have had the most views since we re-launched nationally over a year ago. They're an odd mix of pop culture and sex versus politics.
