A Picture is worth a thousand words?

A picture is worth a 1000 words?

My web site provides a blog facility and I have used it occasionally over the past eleven years. I have written 51 blogs posts and posted them to my site over this period - an average of 5 posts a year. 

I have paid scant attention to visitor numbers for these blog posts, concentrating on regularly tracking visitor views of my photographs.

However, I noticed recently that a few posts were attracting visitors and decided to investigate further.

To my surprise I have had 33,191 visitors to my 51 blog posts as at 2nd July 2021 - a visitor to number of posts ratio of 650:1.

On the other hand the ratio of visitor views to number of photographs on my site is 46,848 to 101,297 ie 0.46:1

So the ratio is 1413:1 ( 650/0.46) in favour of visitors of blog posts to photographs - a surprising result  if the software has accurately captured the views in each case.

I thought a picture was worth a thousand words, obviously not in my case. I have to admit surprise and a slight disappointed that the photographs rated so poorly compared to the blog posts.

The five top rated blog posts are:

  1. Mark Shearman – Athletics Weekly Photographer
  2. Index to events attended so far this year (as at Sept 2014)
  3. 20,000 visitors on Zenfolio
  4. Famous photograph of Tony Duffy
  5. Race over the Glens on 2/1/12

The top 9 posts attracted in excess of 1,000 visitor views each.

On my blog I write about events I have attended, significant statistics, references to sports photographers that I admire etc.
