"Two Questions — and an Apology — for Climate Progress Readers"
First the questions: Climate Progress webstats say that through yesterday, by far the most viewed page is the SHARE THIS button, with an amazing 80,000 views. That comes to more than 4500 views a day — which is more than the average number of visits I get per day. That would mean a whole lot of people are clicking on SHARE THIS on a regular basis, if the webstats can be trusted.
My first question to readers is — are you in fact clicking on SHARE THIS? I’m not getting much traffic from the “social web” — other than Stumbleupon, so I’m assuming that if people are, they are doing so to e-mail posts. So my second question to readers is — are you in fact e-mailing posts to people?
[Bonus technical question: Webstats also calculate 872 under “Entry” and 26,129 under “Exit.” That implies SHARE THIS “may be a navigational dead-end or contain a serious usability problem” according to a website that explains just what Entry and Exit mean. If anyone can explain what’s going on, I’d be grateful.]
Now the apology: I just found out from a reader that my RSS feed link does not work in Internet Explorer. I never realized this because I use the Firefox browser — which I was recommended as the best browser for blogging. [As an aside, I think it is a great browser in general and I use it for all purposes now.]
I am sorry about this — webstats said the feed was clicked on 45,000 so far this month, so I can imagine how frustrating that must be. I have asked the powers that be to fix this ASAP, which hopefully means this month. Until then, you might consider giving Firefox a try. I’ll post again when it is fixed.
