ClustrMaps Archive

I have been using ClustrMaps for a couple years now to track visitors on Airplanes and Rockets. The only thing I do not like is the way they count visitors. According to their statistics, no matter how many times a visitor views a page (or pages) in a 24-hour period, it only counts as one visit. Therefore, it does not accurately reflect the number of times people look at your website. If you only have two or three pages, it do not make much difference, but according to ClustrMaps, a website with hundreds or thousands of pages deserves no more credit than one with only a couple.

It used to not be that way when they first started and I was using it for tracking visitors on my very large (>5,000 pages) engineering website RF Cafe. I was happily paying for the service, which was required due to the thousands of visitors it gets each day. Now that they changed their method of counting, I quit the paid service and use just the free version for Airplanes and Rockets and a couple other smaller websites I do.

The image below is an archive of the December 2008 through December 2009 visitors. ClustrMaps resets the counter once a year (unless you specify more frequently).
