Genomicron reaches ~1K hits

Genomicron: Hits. T. Ryan Gregory posted about his initial success in this medium. I seconded that emotion. He liked my blog title, too (Thanks!).

I need to figure out if my counter is looking at total hits or unique visitors (I assumed the latter; does anyone know?).

The image is from Gregory's recent book which, unfortunately, I have not yet read. It's been on my list for a while...

  2. The one I use is StatCounter (, which lets you know both page loads and unique visits. The one I display on the blog is the latter because it seems more informative. Thanks for the plug, too :-).

  3. Yes, statcounter is a good free solution.

    Regarding the book, I'll be keeping an eye out for it at local shops. It's one of a couple of books on evolution I'm thinking of purchasing soon. But like any university student, my euros only stretch so far :)

    And on a final note, thank you for adding a link to my blog. I've got to organize my blogroll.

    Good luck! Your best bet to find the book is probably a university bookstore (if those in Europe are similar to Canadian university bookstores).

    I'm a grad student in Dr. Gregory's lab, and I found the best way to order the book was through Amazon. A few months ago, the Canadian branch of Amazon had The Evolution of the Genome marked down about 30%. Regular price is up around $80 (CDN).
