Improved mining techniques!

We count web site visits by the number of hits per minute these days ... rather than the number of hits per hour or day. Where do those visitors arrive? All sorts of places ... and not always the most relevant to their search, or at a page with the most relevant of links to them either.

We're fortunate that the Web provides us ... not only with a note of the IP address from which our visitor arrives (and hence we can make an educated guess at their country) but also with details of the page that initially provided a link to us and - usually - details of what they were searching for there if it was a search engine. With this extra information, we're now providing a handful of extra links on our pages (top right, where they'll be noticed) to new arrivals.

The extra code (script) is in PHP; it's not really in a shareable state at the moment (I think it's what they call a "spike" solution), but I'm sure I'll be talking about it during the next PHP course and enhancing my more detailed technical note in the near future.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
