Since I started keeping track of stats on 5 January 2006, we just hit visit number 2 million.

Thanks everyone for helping make this blog a success!

And thanks to #2,000,000 … I don’t know who you are, but you got it.

    What does it means zero seconds of visit length?

    Congratulations on your blog! I learn so much by
    reading it.
    May God continue blessing you

    Congrats Father!

  3. Wolftracker says:

    Derik: Zero seconds of length means that the person visited the site and stayed an indeterminate amount of time before exiting by using the bookmarks or favorites or some other means. Sitemeter can only determine the length of a visit by tracking how long a time it is between the initial visit and the clicking on a link internal to the webpage. If that second click is never made, the it cannot gauge the time and it records that as O seconds.

    Oh, Father, congratulations, I am just nearing 200,00 since May 2006, so I can’t even imagine ten times the traffic. Again, congratulations.

    I had already suggested an autographed copy of the 1962 Missal but I think one must be present to win. 0 seconds is not much “present.”

  6. Bill Haley says:

    I for one have spent many (perhaps too many) minutes browsing this blog.

    Fr. Z., Thank you for your work. It is a most informative, instructive and inspiring blog on the liturgy.

    Please keep up the great service to the Church.

    Fr. Z., Thank you for your work. This is a most instructive, informative and insightful blog. Keep up this great service to the Church.

    All that data is off of one hit? Eek.

    BTW, I think the “zero seconds” means that person must have just logged on to this site ( presumably by accident ) and then clicked off right away, as though it was a mistake. It’s done by clicking off the browser entirely, not just hitting the Stop button. I’ve done that before.

    In all, congrats to the 2,000,000th visitor to this blog, Father Z. Perhaps as Kevin suggested, you can give the person an autgraphed copy of the Tridentine Missal… or any one of your great books. That would be a totally gift for such a milestone as this. :-)

    Looks like a fellow Albany Diocese person! Looking at the post, if one reads it they should know if it was them.

  13. Well I just made 50,000 in a year!

    Can you visit Birmingham while you’re in England? It’s the middle of the country & I live in the Oratory Parish set up by Newman?

    Congratulations Father Z,

    I know for sure that I spend way to much time on your blog, God Bless, and a sincere Thank You for all that you do for the church and for us all. I’m sure that I do not only speak for my self when I say that you help us all feel connected to the Church at large. Thanks

  16. Luke P. says:

    Did I hear “prize”? It was me, it was me! OK, I can’t back that up. Congratulations, Father Z. You have a wonderful blog—truly first rate—and it brings joy and blessings to all of us who read it. Now let’s see if we can all spread the word and get that number to 3 million.

  17. Zero seconds just means that the person did not click on another link in the blog. If you just view the main page, it doesn’t keep track of how long you were on it until you click on another page on the blog.

    Still, it’s not surprising that you have that many hits. This is my favorite blog of the Catholic blogosphere.


  18. Don M says:

    Congratulations Father,

    I am also guilty of spending way to much time on your blog. Thanks for all you do and God Bless
