Blog Emperor Caron has, of course, collected the facts! Traffic stats are, in one sense, misleading, since there are huge differences in visit length between blogs as well. The average length of a visit to this blog tends to be over one minute and forty seconds most of the time; the average length of a visit to the right-wing Instapundit blog, by contrast, tends to be about four seconds. So how does one combine these two data points--number of visits and length of visit--for a meaningful gauge of readership? Who knows?
