Subject:     SHAKSPER Web Site Statistics


I recently, thanks to Ron Severdia, got tools by which I can study usage statistics for the SHAKSPER web site:


During the period between June 1, 2011 to January 31, 2012, I gleaned the following:


There were 30,923 visits.


Of which there were 23,911 unique visitors with 71,938 page views.


77.08% of these visitors (23,834 visits) were new to the site, while 22.92% (7,089 visits) were returning visitors.


The day with the most visits was September 6, 2011: 431 visits—something I cannot fathom other than in terms of chaos theory.


Visitors were from the following countries in descending order: US, UK, Canada, Australia, Singapore, India, Germany, Italy, France, Japan, Philippines, New Zealand, Ireland, Israel, Spain, Switzerland, Russia, Netherlands, Poland, Brazil, Turkey, Sweden, Norway, China, South Africa, Pakistan, Greece, Romania, Belgium, Malaysia, Czech Republic, Hungary, South Korea, Austria, Ukraine, Mexico, Denmark, Finland, Indonesia, Thailand, Taiwan, Portugal, Hong Kong, Argentina, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Iran, Serbia, Croatia, Bangladesh, Tunisia, Bulgaria, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Vietnam, Latvia, Columbia, Jamaica, Lebanon, Georgia, Lithuania, Iraq, Jordan, Malta, Slovakia, Kenya, Kuwait, Kazakhstan, Mauritius, Nigeria, Bermuda, Cyprus, Macedonia, Qatar, Belarus, Chile, Luxembourg, Morocco, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Bahrain, Trinidad and Tobago, Albania, Peru, Syria, Sri Lanka, Costa Rico, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Moldova, Côte d’Ivoire, Iceland, Senegal, Ghana, Isle of Man, Jersey, Oman, Guernsey, Guam, Cambodia, Tanzania, Uruguay, Dominican Republic, Estonia, Guatemala, Nepal, Uzbekistan, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Zimbabwe, Afghanistan, Barbados, Brunei, Guyana, Montenegro, Myanmar, Nicaragua, Panama, Togo, Ugandan, Yemen, Netherlands Antilles, Aruba, Burkina Faso, Benin, Bolivia, Bahamas, Bhutan, Congo, Cameroon, Dominica, Fiji, Gibraltar, Guadeloupe, Honduras, Haiti, Kyrgyzstan, Saint Lucia, Monaco, Madagascar, Macau, Maldives, Malawi, Palestinian Territories, Seychelles, El Salvador.

The site content pages that were most often visited were



Current Postings

Archives 2011

Reference Files

Shakespeare on the Internet


Pedagogy Teaching Resources

Library of Essays

Scholarly Resources


Scholarly Papers for Comments


General Information

Book Reviews



I really found this information to be fascinating. I was not surprised that most appear to come to the site to use the Archives, but I was interested that my Shakespeare on the Internet list and the Announcements, Pedagogical Teaching Resources, Scholarly Resources, Library of Essays, Papers for Comments, and Book Reviews were also popular.


If you have not explored the SHAKSPER web site recently, I encourage you to do so and share your comments with the other readers.


Best wishes,

Hardy Cook
