So now, 52 comics later, the statistics are not impressive:
- 38 total comments
- zero spam (great!)
- 9 of the comments were from me, replying to other comments
- 1 comment was along the lines of “where did my last comment go?”
So basically, after 5+ months people left around 28 comments. Here are the Analytics stats:
- 167,728 visits
- 145,880 absolute unique visitors
- 412,014 pageviews
I’m not sure how to explain it, because I receive far more comments here with WordPress and an annoying CAPTCHA that probably deters a lot of people from commenting. I considered replacing the Friend Connect Social Bar with their Comments gadget instead, but ultimately I decided to give Disqus a shot instead.
I will follow up after a few weeks (and some new comics) to let you know how it goes.
