Summary by Month
The table at the right shows activity by month. Note that "hits" are not indicated, as they give an inflated and somewhat useless figure of merit. This is because each graphic on a page (inluding backgrounds) counts as a "hit." If you must know the hit count for HCC, multiply the page count by 2.5 and you will come pretty close.
For a details on web use, see the recent article detailing a 98 day study.
House Church Central was moved to a new server during the last week of December, 2000. Statistics on the new server are calculated daily and are availble here but exclude MyHCC transactions because those are on a separate host with SSL capability. The monthly totals on this page differ somewhat for that reason.
*The "visits" column gives an approximation of the number of visitors during the given month, each visit counting once regardless of the number of pages viewed during the visit. It is not a reliable statistic because it depends on the hit count for a single page feature and assumes that page to cache once it is served once. Since browsers differ on the lifetime of their cache, it only a rough guideline. Visitor accuracy improved after July, 1998, with more powerful software that evaluates usage logs.
**A "page view" comprises a single downloaded document, no matter how simple or complex it might be. Many pages contain graphics, Java classes, etc., but these are not counted when calculating pages served.
