    Update on Stats

    Last week I posted an article about the changes I’d noticed to the number of visitors and views I’ve received over the last few weeks. This post is a very short one which just updates what I’ve found. The picture above shows the number of clicks, impressions and CTR (click through rate) over the last 28 days and it confirms what I thought last week.

The driver for this is not really cost...
