I have been watching the server logs very closely for these two weeks. I was surprised to see just how many gov.ie people came in to read the blog. I reckon in and around 90 visits were from the gov.ie domain, with many of those staying for up to 30 minutes to look around. As well as that I had visitors from heanet.ie, tcd.ie, ucd.ie, NUI Galway, tch.ie (Examiner or Sunday Business Post) and a large number of referrals from Indymedia, and over a dozen weblogs, some of whom link to Irish corruption but not to Gavin’s blog (fair enough).
In the two weeks visitors have numbered 825, with 2,150 page impressions. That really isn’t all that bad I think. Pagerank remains stubbornly at zero, but all in good time I guess.
And I must thank everyone out there for linkage and words of support, it really is much appreciated.
