200,000 pageviews

The Writers of Wrongs blog recently notched its 200,000th pageview!

(Actually, as I composed this post, we went up over 201,000.)

When the blog began near the end of October, 2016, we did not imagine that it would be so well received. Frankly, it took awhile for us to get on a "roll." There were only about 200 pageviews in that first month. There was, of course, very little to read on the blog at that point. We had 10 times as many PVs in our second month, but that was still a modest total.

It took until about a year ago, May 2017, before we saw a month with a 10,000 PV total. We have had excellent visitor numbers since then, and we are now averaging more than 10,500 PVs per month overall. During the first five pages of the 2018 calendar, the blog has averaged more than 14,500 monthly PVs (over 480 per day).

There's plenty more to read on the site these days. By the end of May, there were 148 posts by seven different writers.

The Writers of Wrongs audience is global. While more than half of our visitors are United States residents, we also see large numbers of visitors from Ukraine, Russia, Israel, France, England, Poland, Brazil, Germany, Canada and other countries.

On behalf of all the contributors to the blog, I want to thank you readers for your interest in and support of our work. I also want to encourage you to keep returning to The Writers of Wrongs. We have many more interesting crime history stories to share with you.

A solid start, better things ahead

The Writers of Wrongs website opened for business this past Oct. 22. As 2016 draws to a close, we take a moment to reflect on the early stages of this joint project of crime history authors.

Three authors are currently posting to the blog. Several other authors are preparing to participate.

Site "analytics" reveal a total of 5,741 pageviews, divided among the 30 posts published during the 70-day history of the site. The site has averaged a new post every 2.3 days. The average post receives just over 191 reader-visits. Statistics show the number of site visitors is dramatically increasing.

Links to individual blog posts have made their way to Facebook, Twitter and Google+, as well as CosaNostraNews and DeadGangster websites.


Through its first 70 days, the Writers of Wrongs blog received visitors from eleven different countries. About 76% of visitors were U.S. residents. Nine percent were from the United Kingdom. The countries of Germany, Canada and France contributed a combined ten percent. The site also had visitors from Australia (1.3%), Ireland (1.2%), Russia (0.7%), Netherlands (0.6%), China and Italy.

Our most popular single post to date was "Behind the Mug: Lucky Luciano's 1931 Arrest," by Christian Cipollini. That post has been viewed 595 times since it was published just two days ago.

We thank our readers for their support. We wish you all the best in 2017 and promise that you will find many interesting items on the blog during the year ahead.
