Cranmer’s Pulpit (and trivial matters of statistics)
Cranmer is delighted to announce that April was another stonking month for his august blog of intelligent and erudite comment upon matters religio-political. There were some 57,135 unique visitors (30,444 ‘absolute unique’) from 167 countries who made 61,891 visits and 74,907 page views. The ‘unique visitors’ are 120 per cent up on April 2008.
Cranmer’s ‘top landing page’ this month has been ‘Explicit sex videos for children’, with 6,269 views. Indeed, that page has attracted quite a bit of undesirable (not to say unsavoury) attention, and His Grace hopes that their undoubted disappointment as they discover this blog (the average viewing time is just 3 seconds) might lead them to carnal salvation. For some reason, a Google search on ‘Explicit sex videos’ places Cranmer at number three on the first page of 99,700,000 possible websites. This is an utterly astonishing achievement, and quite inexplicable.
Cranmer is concerned to note that 5,024 people have visited between 101-200 times over the past 30 days. And he remains profoundly concerned to learn that a further 5,725 people have visited 201+ times, which is in excess of 7 times a day.
In celebration of this month, and in perpetual commemoration of the spiritual liberation afforded by his own pulpit experience with the Provost of Eton, Dr Henry Cole, His Grace is pleased to offer this ‘Cranmer’s Pulpit’ to his communicants for the raising of whatever religio-political or politico-religious concerns they do so wish (intelligently and eruditely, of course).
His Grace shall post again later. He is presently working hard on the sermon he imagines that the Reverend John Brown might today preach to his son, the Prime Minister. He would not be pleased.
