  • But the dark zone is full of depravity and evilness and darkness

    Ok kids, time to start rocking Lexx again. I let this blog stall out last May for the impending Xanga relaunch, the server move finally started on September 1st, and after going through the shock of watching everything I ever built be demolecularized and very slowly and almost haphazardly reconstructed, I have finally (after 9 weeks into the relaunch) got limited widget service and a little more text editor control. I'm still missing the header and footer freedom I used to have and still can't run scripts, but I suspect they'll be coming back as well over the next month or two.

    HOWEVER. I can at least get the reader service and external site tracker back up. As discussed at stats for Lexx fans, and waving to the U.S. Airforce | Arch Heretic, site meter isn't even close to an accurate real time traffic count, plus I've lost tracker stats on it twice now, but it's still cool to have that cute little visitor graphic on the page.  I intended to allow the 'plus' perks on site meter to expire at the end of September but it still seems to be running, in a grace period, perhaps, but I've made it public so anyone can click it.

    Before the relaunch started I saved a complete traffic inventory, some of my posts have over 10,000 direct hits. I have excellent spam filters, so those are real people coming in from searches, live twitter links, and pings from other people linking me. Returning visitors aren't generally counted much if they return a lot, the tracker programs look for new hits. Xanga's old internal tracking system was much better than site meter, hope they get that back up real soon. I'm very curious to see if it kept counting traffic during the relaunch or if I've just had to miss those stats completely.

    I've been alerted to mobile service not being back up yet, so my Xanga blogs are still impossible to read on other devices. Hopefully the feedburner can fix that problem for you. It has worked great in the past, you click on the "subscribe" button at the upper left of the page, and the posts arrive to you as soon as I publish them. This is a clip of feedburner stats. I may have lost all those subscribers during the relaunch, I'm very sorry about that, but it's very easy to hop back on board by clicking that button.

    I know a few of my posts are a little hard to read now since the html got chewed up and spit back out. I'm slowly going through fixing things post by post, and it's been a little frustrating because sometimes after I fix something, another maintenance surge comes through and knocks it off kilter again. Xanga was the best blogging host I ever found in the last ten years, gave me so much creative freedom and even public staff support last autumn after Sandy hit and they kept the servers up on generators, so I'm riding this one out and keeping my faith that my Lexx blog will continue to be really fun well into the future. Thank you so much for checking it out, and stay Lexxy.

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.
