Boredompost: A spot of anime blogging mathematics
June 30, 2006
Bored and seemingly devoid of commentage, I decided to work out by extrapolation how many hits per post Jason must get based on how many comments he gets. This is pure boredom speculation and entirely open tohaving the mathematical smackdown laid upon it.
On my humble blog, I selected 5 of my most commented posts and worked out using WordPress.com’s page hit counter how many views per comment on average I get.
“Ten anime I am ashamed to like” – Comments 13, Views 496 = 38.2 views/comment
“1 month old…” – Comments 11, Views 114 = 10.4
“Ero Game overload…” – Comments 6, Views 324 = 54
“Yuri Dai Batturu…” – Comments 7, Views 287 = 41
“Top 10 Yuri Underdogs” – Comments 8, Views 336 = 42
Average = 37.12 Views per comment.
Also, according to my page hit counter, WordPress.com’s post hit counter underestimates the total amount of hits by about 2/5 (i.e. collectively, the post hits make up about 3/5 of the daily total)
Therefore that gives us a views per comment of about 62.
Thinking about it, that’s not too bad – that I need to get approximately 62 views of a post before somone posts a comment.
Extrapolating this factor to Jason’s blog, he commonly gets about 30 comments for one of his normal posts which works out at about – 1860 views per post! (Though I would probably place it a lot more than that ^_^) and his recent Suzumiya Haruhi post which reaped 87 comments would have required 5394 page views! – numbers I can only dream of ^_^;;
Anyway, this has been a complete waste of time brought to you by yuribou. You may now get back to your regularly scheduled lives.
