Who's following RePosit in cyberspace?

Last week, in the run-up to our project team meeting held on Monday, I took a look at the statistics for visits to the RePosit project blog for our first progress report. Using SeeTheStats (you'll also find the tiny URL link on the right-hand side of the blog at all times), we can see the past month's numbers for how many people came to read this blog, how long they stayed and where they were from. Looking today the totals for the past month are:
  • 390 visits
  • 796 page views
  • 173 absolutely unique visitors
  • 624 unique page views
  • 25% of visits are international
Our grand totals from the point of setting up the blog are 568 visits and 236 absolute unique visitors.

For a project that only got started recently and doesn't yet have tangible outputs to share, that's not bad going. Interestingly, the biggest peak of interest so far was in the last week of August, so I wonder if anyone out there knows what sparked that? My best guess is that in the run-up to the Repository Fringe 2010 event there was extra interest in the subject of projects working in this area.

We welcome comments, so please feel free to interact with the project team via the blog. There are other ways of keeping up with RePosit. We have now got seven followers on Twitter outside our project team, and even the Pecha Kucha presentation written for the Fringe has elicited a following. Please do join the user community space we've set up, which is for all discussions around deposit, using CRIS systems and how we can share knowledge to solve problems together as a community.
