The visitor statistics showed fully recovered from their little summer dip by setting a new all-time high for unique visitors: 14,655 visits from 122 countries browsed FFindr in August (the old record dated from April 2009 with 13,980 visits)! Although the 41,634 page views are not a record (March 2009 triggered 44,152 page views), there is a clear upward trend compared to June (34,331) and July (36,149). Compared to one year ago, the number of visitors augmented by 258%, page views by 294%.

A steady as usual country top ten, except that we have a new leader: Germany took first place from USA, definitely due to the early adoption of the new online registration for Frisbee tournaments.

  1. Germany 20.14% (2. with a share of 15.56% in May 2009)
  2. United States 18.51% (1. with 23.88%)
  3. France 10.41% (3. with 11.96%)
  4. United Kingdom 9.90% (4. with 8.66%)
  5. Canada 6.34% (5. with 6.22%)
  6. Austria 2.68% ↔ (7. with 2.60% / +504.62%)
  7. Switzerland 2.54% (6. with 3.06% / +108.99%)
  8. Belgium 2.20% ↔ (10. with 2.24%)
  9. Italy 2.07% (9. with 2.26%)
  10. Netherlands 1.95% (12. with 1.57%)

The city top ten got mixed around quite a bit, although no newcomers could enter this time. Berlin overtakes Paris, the latter being always on the top right from the beginning.

  1. Berlin 4.39% (3. with 1.85% in July 2009)
  2. Paris 4.07% (1. with 5.14%)
  3. London 3.79% (2. with 3.40%)
  4. Vienna 1.75% (4. with 1.57%)
  5. Dublin 1.36% (7. with 1.02%)
  6. Munich 1.15% (8. with 0.90%)
  7. Zurich 1.07% ↔ (6. with 1.16%)
  8. Bogota 0.97% (9. with 0.85%)
  9. New York 0.94% (5. with 1.34%)
  10. Stuttgart 0.87% (10. with 0.72%)

Every now and then I also look at the distribution regarding continents. In the last six months South America overtook Asia taking the third place, all the rest is more or less steady.

  1. Europe 65.41% (compared to 66% in January 2009)
  2. North America 24.85% (25%)
  3. South America 4.05% (2.96%)
  4. Asia 3.92% (3.12%)
  5. Oceania 1.13% (1.87%)
  6. Africa 0.63% (0.68%)

The most visited tournaments are coined by those using the new online registration powered by FFindr as well as the top level summer tourneys in Europe (EYUC 2009, DM 2009 and EUCR 2009 CE) and Northern America (CUC 2009 and ECC 2009).

  1. Drachenfest 2009 (549 views)
  2. EFDF European Youth Ultimate Championships 2009 (530)
  3. Herbstliga Berlin-Potsdam (509)
  4. Deutsche Ultimate Meisterschaften 2009 (470)
  5. 1st Frontier Runner HAT (Grenzgänger HAT) (441)
  6. Paris Summerlove 2009 (411)
  7. Oktoberfest-Tourney 2009 (351)
  8. Emerald City Classic 2009 (315)
  9. Canadian Ultimate Championships 2009 (272)
  10. 2009 EUCS Regionals Central East (245)

I played a little with Google, the search engine that sends by far most of the visitors to FFindr. In general it is noticeable that Google considers content on FFindr particularly relevant (the homepage currently has a Pagerank of 6, the blog has one of 5), most searches for tournaments show a link to the tournament's page on FFindr among the top results.

Searching for frisbee reveals FFindr on the third page of results (position 34). Much better results achieve the terms frisbee tournament, showing FFindr on 5th place! A Google search for frisbee organiser or frisbee event returns FFindr.com on the top position, whereas frisbee tourney, frisbee tournament manager and frisbee tournament registration show FFindr on the bottom of the first results page (position 9).
