Thank You Readers!

We crossed a few milestones or recently, so I thought I’d share them with you. We launched this blog June 1. Today:

  • Feedburner says we have 208 readers. That number fluctuates wildly, but we’ve held your attention better lately, getting from 100 to 200 in a fraction of the time it took to get to 100.
  • Google Analytics says we’ve passed 25,000 pageviews from more than 13,000 visits.
  • The sandbox page hosting the search plugin for MetaLink accounts for 3,400 of the pageviews from 2,200 odd visits. My post on the plugin accounted for 3,500 pageviews.
  • Ruby Inside picked up Rich’s post about our search for a Rails developer, driving more than half of the 1,300 pageviews to his post.
  • Our Technorati authority is 44, inching upward.
  • Alexa says we’re number 1,025,817, woo-hoo!
  • We’re averaging 2 comments per post, not including our del.icio.us bookmark posts, which is more than I expected.

Special thanks to Justin Kestelyn of OTN for launching us, Eddie Awad for aggregating us into OraNA and Steven Chan for sending his readers to us.

July has been an eventful month for AppsLab. We’re hoping to carry the momentum into August and beyond. Rich built us a strong technical readership, and I hope you people are still reading, despite the drop in hardcore technical content lately. Rich, the one-man development team, is busily working on our “next big thing”. Stay tuned.

Thanks to all you beautiful readers. Keep the comments and feedback coming.
