Website Statistics for Fathers for Life, 2006 to 2013 Summary

Trends of monthly page views over time for the ten most-popular subject areas at F4L


Monthly numbers of pageviews over time for the ten most popular subject areas covered by the website of Fathers for Life, 2006 to 2013

A few features of that trend line are common to all of the trend lines presented on this page. The three most important ones of those are:

  1. The steep rise in late 2006, at the beginning of the trend lines, is due to Google Analytics having been installed to record web-stats for F4L in the middle of October 2006. Fathers for Life had become a very popular website.  I had thought that it would be a good idea and less labour-intensive to monitor website traffic and traffic patterns with Google Analytics than by the means I had been using.

  2. The large drop in traffic volumes shown for 2011 began in early April and was ostensibly due to Google having implemented ranking-algorithm changes that were ostensibly intended to eliminate duplicate listings on search returns. Roughly one-third of all websites I surveyed were affected by that. I did not have sufficient time at hand to determine whether any sort of selection bias was at play, except that I found some feminist web sites had not been affected, but many pro-male saw drops in traffic volumes that ranged from about 20% to more than 30%, compared to traffic volumes they had experienced in the preceding month, but not only that.

    The frustrating aspect of that decline is that with virtually all affected subject areas, the decline in traffic volumes was preceded by a universal, extra-ordinarily steep increase in traffic.

  3. The steep decline in page views at the end of the trend line is due to two things:

  • A hacker attack that targeted ten of the then most-popular 25 web pages at F4L, and

  • An oversight; the page views for April 2013 should have been excluded from the graph.  They are for only seven days in April. Nevertheless, it is obvious that the hacker attack in March had a substantial even if only temporary impact on the number of page views in March. (I hope to be able to make an update to all of the graphs for the end of April.  The update will then make it more clear how much of an impact the March hacker attack had.)

The following graphs are for the ten subject areas of interest examined in this page . Clicking on a given image will take you to a table of contents or an index page or a key page for the subject area addressed by the image.

 Monthly numbers of pageviews over time for the subject area "Health" at the website of Fathers for Life, 2006 to 2013

The substantial decline in the level of interest in the subject of health is almost exclusively due to the decline of public interest in the subject of Anorexia Nervosa. That subject accounted for a substantial but steadily declining share of all traffic to F4L for the first three years of the interval examined.

Monthly numbers of pageviews over time for the subject area "Divorce" at the website of Fathers for Life, 2006 to 2013

Monthly numbers of pageviews over time for the subject area "Dale's Disk" at the website of Fathers for Life, 2006 to 2013

Monthly numbers of pageviews over time for the subject area "Feminism" at the website of Fathers for Life, 2006 to 2013

Monthly numbers of pageviews over time for the subject area "Fatherhood" at the website of Fathers for Life, 2006 to 2013

Monthly numbers of pageviews over time for the subject area "History" at the website of Fathers for Life, 2006 to 2013

 

Monthly numbers of pageviews over time for the subject area "Population Politics" at the website of Fathers for Life, 2006 to 2013

The sudden increases in traffic volumes late in everyone of the years covered were due to the mainstream media featuring discussions of world demographics.  It appears that those scheduled media campaigns motivate many people to inform themselves about population trends.  That is a prime example of to what extent public interest is being influenced by what the media popularize.  It is clear that just a few people are the drivers of the opinions of very many.

In this particular case, the regular annual increase in traffic volumes is caused by news stories that focus on issues of world demographics and mentioning of the term "population pyramids" in October of each year, at a rate that is about five times greater than that in September of each year. 

We may have freedom of speech, although that is somewhat debatable, but we most definitely do not have freedom of opinions.  Our opinions are being steered by just very few people, perhaps and possibly by few more than a handful of them.  Who pulls their strings?

 Monthly numbers of pageviews over time for the subject area "Family Law" at the website of Fathers for Life, 2006 to 2013

Monthly numbers of pageviews over time for the subject area "Parents Helping Parents" at the website of Fathers for Life, 2006 to 2013

The web pages for Parents Helping Parents are a subdomain of the website of Fathers for Life.  The deep deep dip in traffic volumes at the end of 2011 werewas caused by it being overlooked that something had gone wrong with uploading updates for the website (the directory structure had been changed inadvertently).
