Ever since I started this blog in September of 2011, my primary goals have to been to provide a laugh or two, have fun, and (occasionally) introduce folks in my Facebook/linkedin circle of contacts to slightly-obscure films they might have missed.
I don’t make any money from Schuster at the Movies, and I’ve never been terribly concerned with expanding its readership to reach a mass audience. That said, Blogger.com provides some interesting numbers that I thought I would share.
In case you were curious, Schuster at the Movies received 66 pageviews yesterday, 1,346 last month, and 23,787 since it was started.
Most of the time, a review will receive somewhere between 10 and 20 pageviews: my last post, Bite the Bullet, for instance, is now up to a grand total of nine.
Then again, some posts have proven to be quite popular. My February 26 review of Fast Times at Ridgemont High is now up to 247 pageviews, and that number keeps rising.
Other popular posts include:
Plan Nine from Outer Space (1959, reviewed October 30, 2012): 120 pageviews (154 according to the “Posts” page on blogger.com)
A River Runs Through It (1992, reviewed April 20, 2012): 118 (173)
Fierce Creatures (1997, reviewed December 7, 2011): 118 (238)
Santa With Muscles (1996, reviewed December 23, 2011) 118 (188)
Goodfellas (1990, reviewed November 22, 2011): 94 (132)
Smokey and the Bandit (1977, reviewed March 4, 2012): 61 (99)
Angel Heart (1987, reviewed October 29, 2012): 61 (75)
Tombstone (1993, reviewed September 27, 2012): 61(134)
Blood In, Blood Out (1993, reviewed March 14, 2012): 56 (124)
I have no idea why these discrepancies between blogger.com pages exist, or why certain other reviews (Harvey, for example, received 117 pageviews) are not included on the Stats Overview page at all. I share this information mostly for shits and giggles, and to offer a rough idea of my blog’s readership.
Oh – and I would like to offer all of my regular and not-so-regular readers a big Thank You.
