Statistics! (I did teach Maths, remember…)

Well I don’t have a lot to say today, but after my post on facebook https://www.facebook.com/2258900347689003/posts/2784454361800263/ earlier this morning, asking for some support for all we are trying to do, here at friendsofpakati.com I saw how the statistics are doing for this website. These two pics below show the stats for 2019 & for 2020 so far:

2019
2020 so far…

Today we have topped 8000 views so far this year, and visitors to the site top 4670. Below shows where the views are coming from – a truly international readership:

….and there were many others too. Here are the most viewed pages this year:

I do get to see daily, weekly & monthly stats too, so I can spot trends & see what is popular. What really took off for us – thanks to followers and staff of https://www.scunthorpe-united.co.uk – was this post about Pakati Primary school students using their new kits for the first time https://friendsofpakati.com/2020/02/17/pakati-primary-new-sports-tops-on-show-as-they-prepare-for-the-zonal-sports-competition/ and the story of that post too https://friendsofpakati.com/2020/02/23/amazing-the-story-behind-our-most-popular-post-so-far/

To truly see what we are doing and why, then please look at https://friendsofpakati.com/2020-vision-friends-of-pakati-the-project-continues/ for more details.
