Traffic changes since Covid-19

I was wondering what the Buzzboard traffic statistics look like since Covid-19 landed.

I'll look later this evening and will let you know. :)

Generally speaking, unique user visits per day number around 2,000.

OK - here is some data:
- Before I changed to my current security suite, average unique visits actually numbered around 3,600 per day (I sold the Buzzboard short with my earlier estimate!).
- Since changing my security to Sucuri, my site stats through my web host no longer provide correct data.
- Sucuri provides a report of HTTP requests by month as opposed to unique visitor sessions. In February, the number for the month (excluding blocked spambots) was 1,353,918. For March, the number was 1,425,153. Not really a material difference on a per diem basis.

What I found most interesting was this - 31.1% of total Buzzboard "hits" came from Safari web browsers. Lots of iPhone and Mac users out there! :)

Chrome served up 46.6% of total requests. Firefox 11.4%. Interest Explorer/Edge - a measly 5.7%!

28.2% of Buzzboard traffic comes from smartphones. 29.3% from Bots (some of which are blocked). 42.5% from PCs.

I do not use Google Analytics.
