WordPress have collated and forwarded me these stats for the past year:

450,000 views in 2012. This was up from 280,000 in 2011. The shift began with posts on Paul-Louis Couchoud and responses to James McGrath’s vacuous efforts to “review” Earl Doherty’s Jesus: Neither God Nor Man, but a new plateau was established with posts on various responses to Bart Ehrman’s Did Jesus Exist?, in particular Earl Doherty’s chapter by chapter reviews. These have been collated and edited into a new ebook.

Most popular posts:

The busiest day last year was April 27th when I posted Carrier versus Ehrman: Reflections — 2,618 views on that day.

Thanks everyone for commenting or just quietly lurking. Glad to be able to write posts others find of interest.

  1. One other detail I find encouraging is that the 450,000 represents only ‘on-site views’ and does not include those who view the posts through email and rss feeds, and it does not represent the numbers of visitors. Visitors seem to average between 2 and 3 on-site views each, which tells me that they find the articles worth coming back to or find more worthwhile posts to read once here. Posts written years ago are still attracting strong interest.

    1. so do you believe if you split-off or expanded you would dilute hits for Vridar? What I’m saying is that, as far as edification, Vridar is at the highest level I’ve seen around… but maybe a release valve? idk my2c
