Extreme Tracking's averages period

Is the "average" figure for Extreme Tracking the average for the whole time since Extreme Tracking has been tracking? (I can't find any description of how it works)

If so, this makes it a bit unfair to compare it to Sitemeter (as people have been saying). For example, for Random Acts of Reality, Extreme Tracking gives an average of 449, but he's had well over 1000 a day for the last week. Sitemeter, on the other hand, seems to mainly average over the last few days.

Should I maybe use the figure for "Last Week", which Extreme Tracking puts up, and divide it by seven? (There aren't that many sites using Extreme Tracking, so this shouldn't be that big a task).

Any thoughts?


  • Yes it is (but I thought Sitemeter was as well? Couldn't find an explanation of how it calculates that)

    Mine's also a lot lower, basically because I had Extreme on when I had about 10 visitors a day. I guess Tom's site (Random Acts) might be the same.

    As Extreme works slightly different anyway, personally I wouldn't bother doing the division thing as it's still not quite a comparison.

    This is fun...

  • Some sites, such as your own, Jonny, have both Sitemeter and Extreme Tracking. I've found that dividing last week's figures by 7 gives a total much closer to their current Sitemeter averages, so although it's still not an exact like-for-like comparison, it seems to provide a much closer comparison.

    For example, your Sitemeter currently says 372 average daily visits. Your Extreme Tracking says 146 (no doubt because, as you say, you had it on when you were starting out). But if I take your figures for last week, 2006, and divide by 7, I get 286, which is much closer to Sitemeter's figures.

    (I've never seen an explanation of how Sitemeter does its averages, but I know from experience that it heavily weights it towards the last few days).

  • That makes sense.

  • still not that close. apples and oranges, dude.

  • But closer than before? Apples and pears, maybe.

    Anyway, unless someone tells me how else it can be done, we'll just have to live with it. I could just decide not to include Extreme Tracking stats at all! :-) But I don't think that would be well-received by the ET people.

    Even if we just used Sitemeter, there'd still be the problem that some sites get mainly Google traffic. But the main point of this site is that it provides some publicity for British blogs. The specific rankings aren't that big a deal. It's not like a book contract hangs on whether you're 5th or whether you're 11th. (If only it did!) And by American standards we all look pretty pissweak. But that hundreds of people are reading our ravings every day is reason enough to smile.

  • From there, make sure that when you wager with an online casino that you know exactly what you are doing. The biggest mistake that you could possibly make would be to place bets on games that you are unsure of. For example, if you want to play blackjack at an online casino but do not know how, make sure you get some details first. If you do not, you are doing the equivalent of throwing your money out the window. The bottom line is that you can never win at an online casino if you do not know the rules of the games that you are going to play.
    [url=]casino[/url] casino Web-based games are played through your browser. You might need Macromedia Flash, Macromedia Shockwave, or Java installed for the games to work. With this type, no software is loaded to you computer and you can usually start playing immediately. This is great to play one of the many free games some casinos offer.
    [url=]online casino[/url] casino Of course, when you play in a casino, you have a basic understanding that the house almost always wins. This also applies in online casinos. So make sure that you go slowly on transferring money, since online casino, just like traditional casinos, can become quite addictive.

[url=]bingo[/url] [url=]bingo[/url] bingo bingo Bingo is usually played in special halls where many players can play at the same time. The actual fun is the tension building up seeing other players closer and closer to the finish line. However, with the advent of the Internet, BINGO has gone online as well. There are many ways to play on the net, though the basics remain the same. You will have to complete a given pattern before anyone else in order to win. Over the net, you need not shout the computer will flash it out for you. Some online games also have chat attached to the games where you can speak with other players online and have fun right from your home, office or any other place where you can get on the net. Chatting is a great way to meet new people and pick up the tips and tricks. [url=]phentermine[/url] buy phentermine
