    Default Friday Stats: December 2009 summary

    Ok, well as there have been rather a lot of new members in recent weeks I'll just explain that I have been doing a monthly post to update users on how the site has been doing in the previous month in general. I usually aim to do it more quickly than the last working day of the month though!!

    As I suggested last month, December was the slowest month of the year with 103,000 visitors, very slightly up on December 2008. Christmas day managed just over 1,000 visitors and was the quietest day of the year.

    During the month there were:-
    2,556 photos of 725 different pubs
    308 comments added
    93 new pubs suggested

    Since we are into a new year I'll take the opportunity to round up 2009:-
    1.5 million visits to the site
    55,802 photos of 14,160 different pubs
    5,458 comments added
    3,344 new pubs suggested
    585 beer festivals listed

    It will be interesting to see how the figures change, hopefully positively, with the influx of new members.

    Do you normally publish a monthly comparison of reviews etc to the same month in the previous year?
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

    So far we have just posted raw numbers, and shoved in some interesting observations as we see them, will sort out the prior years stats now though, and continue to provide them in future stats updates.

    Yes it should be particularly interesting when I look at the January figures as it has been quite an influx of active members.

    Just looked at the December 2008 numbers though.

    New pubs in 2009 were well down on 2008. Sticking the pub adding tool on the site led to 8407 being suggested in 2008

    I guess new pubs being added would be in decline as the number of new [or non listed] pubs must diminish over time?

    I keep on thinking that must happen, it doesn't feel like it does from this end though.

    Certainly that dip is probably mostly to do with the listings gradually actually becoming correct. Looking at it I am surprised at how modest the reviews jump is, I suspect most of the reviews we received last year were informational posts about pubs being closed and the like.

    As Conrad says we keep being surprised by just how many more pubs people are finding.

    This month one of our users added another 100 around rural Shropshire - it frightens me that there might be that many or more missing in other counties!

    I believe there are about 60,000 on-licenses in the UK but I don't know how many are on PuG. I do know I've still got a few thousand to visit.
    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    52825 marked as open, but I would guess at the very least 10% of those are still not really addressed by members.
