As a fourth year doctoral candidate, in addition to having completed comprehensive examinations and prospectus and working on the dissertation, my thoughts are also turning towards the job market and securing that first academic position. This purpose of this blog is to chronicle the trials and tribulations of completing my Ph.D. and finding that first job.

Blog Statistics for July 2005

Well, the standard counter sits at 478... I can't say how many visits we had in July because I didn't include that figure in the June statistics for some reason. But we have had 252 hits since the end of May.

This past mnth we have had 53 unique visitors to Breaking into the Academy, 49 of which were first time visitors and 4 whom were returning visitors. This averages out to about 2 a day.

These visitors have come from mainly Canada and the United States, but we have also had visits this past month from the United Kingdom, Singapore, Mexico, New Zealand, Belarus, Portugal, Malaysia, Australia, Hong Kong, and Egypt.

You can add to this list Ireland, Puerto Rico, and Switzerland from previous months... Bringing the total to fifteen countries since we started tracking on 25 May 2005.

Popular entries this page month included:

How'd people find us? Well, it appears that other's blogs are really helping me out this month, as I had visitors arrive here from The Program, Raj's blog, some random blog I assume, and Heather's blog.

In addition, it appears that I got a fair amount of search engine traffic... With Technorati bringing in three times the visitors as Yahoo! and Google, and MSN bringing up the rear. Interesting, here are some of the keywords that they used to arrive here:

  • array
  • gaming and education
  • maclean's computers stupid
  • lowell 2004 transactional distance
  • sue ferguson macleans
  • education and gaming
  • video gaming in education
  • the overlay nathan lowell
  • distance education theory saba
  • massive subject pool

Interesting... Anyway, see you again at the end of August for some more statistics...
