Yesterday, 1st of October, I looked at the site traffic using the Weebly provided 'Insight' Tool as I had been adding lots of content recently and discussing the site of some forums and it showed me that in the past 30 days I'd had 2,300 unique visitors who performed 6,676 page views and on the 1st alone I'd had 49 unique visitors - OK I know these numbers aren't great but they at least mean that there was a point in putting content on here. I don't pay Weebly for the tools I use - it's their free, but quite restricted website service, so my only cost (apart from time) is the continual cost of my domain name so that's not to bad. Now today I logged in to find the I no longer had 2,300 visitors in the last 30 days but only just over 30 and this was up over a hundred percent from the last 30 day period and yesterday I didn't have 49 visitors just 1. I emailed Weebly to see why this has changed so dramatically - I've yet to get a response, but on the 'Insight' page there is now a banner which states;
If this new methodology truly is a better indication of site traffic then it would appear that there is little point in adding anything to the site and I might as well save not only the money for my domain registration but the not inconsiderable time I intended to spend adding content!
So to apparently the one or two of you who occasionally visit here thank you for your time - if you want to leave a comment about this or anything else, click on Comments below or use the Contact Me form... I wonder where the contact forms I occasionally get actually come from now?
