Curly Arrow - Established 18th October 2006

Three years later. I'm surprised that I still manage to keep Curly Arrow alive. The reason that things are still happening is you guys that read my stuff and send me some very positive and enthusiastic emails. I'm getting a lot of hits from Google and the blog appears to have a tremendous impact. For example if you do a Google search on Click Chemistry you'll see the Wikipedia entry as the top hit followed by Curly Arrow. Curly Arrow has a higher rating than the original literature on Click Chemistry! So I guess I'll just keep at it and see what happens. I have listed the stats for the past year below. Numbers are up but the top 10 visitors (that I can identify) haven't changed much. The major difference is that the only company (GSK) is out and that Japan has made an entry. I can see a whole bunch of european networks that I get a ton of hits from and I suspect that certain German Universities should be on the list. As a consequence this year I have also included top 10 contries that visit the blog. D!

The median time (or the middle 50%) time spent on the site may be a more meaningful statistic because the mean time can distorted by extremes!
