  • Lexx traffic

    Anybody else watch Syfy's 20th Anniversary Special? I'm already finding message boards in several forums with fans expressing disappointment and frustration that Lexx didn't even get a passing glance, despite it being a heavy contender in the Friday Prime lineup during their biggest Stargate/Farscape years and despite the fact that "Lexx was voted 23rd in a recent poll by SciFiNow magazine in June 2009 in the '25 Greatest Sci-Fi TV Shows'.", from Lexx - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    I'm not going to bother with why. I'm just going to share my traffic stats over the last ~ten days~ here on my Lexx nerd blog at -I am looking at ONLY those tracks that come in directly to Lexx-specific posts and not the main page or unrelated posts. Between the internal Xanga tracker and my paid site meter, there are 46 countries represented. In the U.S. there are 36 states represented, despite the fact that Lexx has not been seen in the U.S. since Syfy stopped airing it. If you have recently visited and do not see your country or state listed below and want to be recognized, give a shout out in the comments. MANY of my visitors came in through named blogs or anon proxies, and I'm not enough of a stalker to backtrack those locations.
    Countries in no particular order-
    United States, Canada, Luxembourg, Sweden, Finland, France, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Spain, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Denmark, India, New Zealand, Belgium, Ukraine, Turkey, Poland, Philippines, Russian Federation, Myanmar, Pakistan, Mexico, Israel, Iceland, Saudi Arabia, Netherlands, Australia, Indonesia, Iraq, United Arab Emirates, Brazil, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Yemen, Peru, Egypt, Thailand, Algeria, Slovakia, Kuwait, Singapore, Hungary, Romania, and Uganda.
    United States in no particular order-
    Illinois, Maryland, Iowa, Michigan, California, Nebraska, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New York, Arizona, Indiana, Washington, Missouri, Texas, Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Kentucky, Alabama, Arkansas, Virginia, New Jersey, Oregon, Tennessee, Ohio, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Carolina, Delaware, Colorado, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
    My little stat map only goes back 500 hits on site meter, and I easily got that just in the last 3 days. I have other non-Lexx posts that get hit a lot, so that is also showing up on this map.

    These charts are only for site meter, not Xanga. Xanga will catch what site meter doesn't, and vice versa. Neither one counts web crawlers, and site meter is pretty strict about not counting redundancy.


    This is only one Lexx site. I'm not counting my tumblr or anything off a message board or other people's fan sites. I think this is a pretty accurate and fair sampling of worldwide interest in Lexx since I restarted this blog 5 months ago. If Syfy isn't hearing any screaming, it's probably because we've gone a bit hoarse and are a little tired, but that doesn't mean we don't want to see LEXX or don't care whether it's not talked about. I'm hoping the reason it wasn't is because it's still tied up in legal issues and Syfy simply couldn't legally use any Lexx footage, nice little marketing history at Waiting For the LEXX Spin-off, assuming it's correct.
    "Year 1998 Commercials for the new season of Farscape and the new show Lexx. Part of the SciFi 2.0 overhaul of the channels motion graphics. At :41 The SciFI 2.0 Element for "Series" is displayed next to the Farscape and the Element for "Fantasy" is displayed above the words LEXX the Movies ."
    "Advert for the final season premiere of the strange, sensual and surreal scifi program LEXX. In the final season the crew of the LEXX finds Earth which coincidentally is inhabited with people that they once knew from their past, including the coniving Prince and the denizens of planets Fire and Water they met in the season prior. The series ends after this season."
    I think I mostly did this post to show Lexx fans that you aren't alone, and to show Syfy you're out there.

web stats

My first tracker was installed in 2004 and broke several times before moving to a new server, which lost a few months of stats, and then Xanga moved to new servers and I lost more stats for more months before the page came back up, so I've lost a total of about two years' worth of stats. The second was installed 2-22-14 and is considered very conservative by business owners who use analytics, which itself is very conservative, estimates being that roughly one third to one half of hits by real live people aren't even counted, most likely due to javascript discrepancies. Actual hits on several posts here are in the thousands now, and the Lexx Index in the ten thousands. I've got pingbacks turned off, so spam isn't counted at all within the Xanga internal tracker, and most direct post hits can be correlated to my real time linking activity on twitter and other social media. When I did Google Analytics beta testing I got to see how search engine performance compares to tracking. I believe live feed linking sources to various social medias are key to a future where search engines are more about performance than cataloging, which has been confirmed to me by coders who create bot algorithms as I was beta testing I've fought hard through redundant age-old stacks to make my way to the google front lines again, so my Lexx work shows up faster on Chrome searches now. This has been a really interesting ride. At any rate, my point is, I can still go back 6 years on my original tracker and I can still see that in 2013 just before the last big blog server move, I was getting traffic like this (and since then, the tracker may have been abandoned, we can't tell). Click the thumbnail to see full size.

My original tracker also still lets me see the latest 500 visitors on a map. I once counted over 80 countries among the total visits. You guys are not alone. Click the map to see it better.

Besides Lexx, the most common search phrases that bring new visitors here are variations on 'huge spaceship'. The most seen post from a phrase search is How Big is the Lexx? My biggest Lexx referrer is Lexx Domain. Most of page views per person count comes from the Lexx tag on Tumblr. Visitors who stay the longest come through URLOpener and are pinged through the Google translator server in Mountain View, CA.
