EDIT: Rankings of 32 Teams by Number of Visitors

I have been thinking of doing this for some time now. Actually I suggested to Mr. Gates that giving out numbers would be much more interesting but then decided I could do it myself...Since I do similar thing as part of my job!

I wanted to go in more depth but am running somewhat short on time so here are the major stats for DN and some other relevant sites (after the jump) -

I cannot give you the whole analysis right now but promise to do it tonight. These are just numbers. Put them in context yourself...for example: Total number of hits is proportional to the date of creation of the blog, big cities = big numbers etc. Leave comments and let me know what information you would like to know and I will try to include that in my analysis tonight.


EDIT: All 32 sites ranked by total number of visitors. I do not know when these websites were created so total number of visits is only a number. Averages is when it starts to get interesting.

Average number of visits per day is one of the ways to determine how active your members are. It takes the time of creation of the website into consideration so total number of visits become somewhat meaningless (except as a milestone).

Average length of Visit tells you how engaged your visitors are. Do you check out your website, maybe read headlines and drop-off..or do you spend some time on your blog once you get there and read the articles, make fun of the Saints*, and maybe leave a comment or two!

If the average length of visit is same, then the team with higher average visitors is ranked higher. A website sustaining a higher number of visitors for equal amount of time goes higher imho.

Rankings by Average Length of the Visit:

1 Dallas Cowboys 4:39

2 Carolina Panthers 4:19

3 Kansas City Chiefs 4:18

4 Seattle Seahawks 4:14
