I am unsure of last years statistics, as I only recently gained access to the Wikidot home page in the last 90 days or so, so any previous records is restricted to me from that time period.
Could have been an article at a major review site, or lord knows what!?!!
Currently the Wikidot pages are under going some major construction for very recent numbers are scewed.
I can say that the numbers presented by the page in question do not in any way match the Google Analytics, but if you the in account the redirects, time on site, and length of time teh page has existsed...the numbers do start to come together.
We still average well over 2000+ visitors a day to the home page, and well over 80% new visitors per day.....that is about what I know for certain.
