Since I moved Black Velvet Bruce Lee to my own servers on July 5th I’ve been able to get a lot more information about who is visiting. Some of that information is just fascinating. Although I will not release information about individuals visiting or posting, some of the aggregate information is rather surprising. For example, here’s a listing of some of the top domains which visit BVBL:
Notice that mediageneral.net, the domain for the parent company of the Manassas Journal-Messenger and the Potomac News is number six above? And when you consider that 3essentials is a blog aggregator, and googlebot is the webcrawler for Google which identifies them as systems rather than visitors, that means that Media General is the fourth biggest domain of visitors to Black Velvet Bruce Lee. I wonder when I start getting credit for their reporting.
In terms of individual hosts visiting (some IP information has been redacted), Media General is similarly prevalent:
|no.||reqs||7-day reqs||first time||last time||host|
|1||5022||2291||8/Jul/06 18:33||26/Jul/06 22:43||web12.3essentials.com|
|2||2470||911||10/Jul/06 08:05||26/Jul/06 17:13||fett-ext.[redacted].org|
|3||1934||723||6/Jul/06 18:42||27/Jul/06 00:12||pool-[redacted].washdc.dsl-w.verizon.net|
|4||1262||716||6/Jul/06 11:53||26/Jul/06 17:50||ric1.mediageneral.net|
|5||795||306||6/Jul/06 11:01||26/Jul/06 13:25||cpe-024-[redacted].nc.res.rr.com|
Media General employees are number 3 in this listing. Hmmm. Kinda makes you wonder about stories like this.
