Another Record Month for Uncommon Descent

Spread the love


The sharp spike in hits and files (green and dark blue) are mostly due to the new layout. The key statistic is daily average number of visits. Total visits are shown in yellow but that varies by number of days in the month so the daily average is the better metric.

The daily average number of visits was 5828 for January 2007 compared to the previous record of 5311 for December 2006 representing a gain of 10% month over month.

For those who haven’t been following UD very long the decline between August and October was was the result of being delisted from Google in the middle of September.

    Hey Dave, this puts paid to the idea that Dover killed ID (they wish!).

    You know, I think I know why anti-IDists believed that Dover would kill ID.

    If you believe ID is nothing more than a Creationist Trojan Horse designed only to get religion into schools, then of course a legal setback such as Dover would be very damaging. It would tell TH (Trojan Horse) IDists that their theocratic plot would never work.

    But if on the other hand ID is a legitimate scientific approach to physical science, then Dover simply becomes a footnote and a very temporary setback.

    Apparently Dover was just a footnote, as the UD blog shows, which is consistent with ID being an actual science.

    ID isn’t going anywhere any time soon.

    When do you start profit sharing? 😉

    BTW: I read that YouTube is considering to share profits with users that post videos.

    Why is “ID defined” no longer found on UD? Isn’t that important to maintain for skeptics of ID how limited the scope of basic ID theory?

    I put ID Defined back in the links column.

    The sidebar “pages” category was lost going to the new layout and that’s where it was originally.
