I thought it was some kind a achievement that according to SiteMeter the total number of page views of this site reached 100,000 today. I guess I should also be pleased that this site now has a Google PageRank of 4, which apparently isn’t too bad.
Shortly after discovering all of this, though, I saw this post on The Boys Blog (which I am sure does not recognize this site’s existence, and probably for good reason) that it surpassed 200,000 page views during the month of March alone! Here is part of that post:
We’re the biggest, non-network-affiliated NFL team blog in the American blogosphere. We’re steadily growing. March was our biggest month, with over 111,000 visitors and 210,000 page views.
So despite knowing that I do not have anywhere close to the number of visitors as other Cowboys blogs, I nevertheless decided to see exactly how many more we were talking about. Holy cow:
Deadspin (king of them all, shown here for comparison purposes): 68,620,067 total visitors; 86,606,819 total page views; 182,463 average daily visitors; 220,291 average daily page views.
The Boys Blog: 1,257,707 total visitors; 2,559,601 total page views; 2,345 average daily visitors; 3,939 average daily page views.
Blogging the Boys: 544,314 total visitors; 1,282,019 total page views; 1,750 average daily visitors; 3,560 average daily page views.
Know Your Dallas Cowboys: 56,635 total visitors; 100,045 total page views; 112 average daily visitors; 201 average daily page views.
But here’s what I found really strange: When I used a Google PageRank checker, here are the results for the aboveforementioned sites:
The Boys Blog: 3/10
Blogging the Boys: 6/10
Know Your Dallas Cowboys: 4/10
Dallas Cowboys.com: 6/10
Pro Sports Daily: 5/10
So I guess this raises a question: what does it mean when a famous search engine likes you more than the fans that watch the team about which you write? Hmmm.
