1,000,000 and counting
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, May 10, 2005

I know that Site Meter notoriously undercounts hits and I know that in the big scheme of things this doesn't mean much, but QandO went over a million today.

Thanks to all our readers from whatever side of the political spectrum you come. You're always welcome here.

I’ve heard that sitemeter undercounts, but added a pay site counter service (sitestats.com), and the counts were absolutely identical.

the counts were absolutely identical.

Which could also mean they both count the same way.

Dale runs the site and, of course, has access to the site stats. Per the server stats, Site Meter is undercounting.

Sitemeter undercounts? I was under the impression that it was the best free counter around... and that it picks up more hits than other free counters. But then, perhaps the paid counters are more accurate.

Note: I just found this entry on Sitemeter, with a comments thread discussing the issue, from Andrea Harris’ old blog.


Anyway, congratulations on this milestone. For some reason, despite having been a blogger since the Fall 2002 semester, I only recall finding your weblog a few months ago. How long has the "Q and O" blog been running?

Sitemeter misses a lot of visits. The host server of a website will also track visits, hits, unique visitors, etc, and ours indicates significantly more than Sitemeter. The server, of course, is perfectly accurate, since it’s actually counting what it does. We’ve found that sitemeter usually undercounts by 50% or so. Kevin Aylward at Wizbangblog did a similar bit of investigation among bloggers, and found the same thing.

I like sitemeter, and it’s a very useful tool, but that’s just the nature of counters that you stick on webpages.

I started this blog back in late August of 2003, on blogspot. We moved over to our own .net domain in January of 2004, and we’ve been here ever since. The archives for the old MT installation are well down on the lefthand sidebar, though we lost the first couple months of 2004.
