    I was just going through my server logs, and I noticed an interesting trend since my stats program started counting pageviews accurately in March:

    March: Avg. 19,178 daily p/v
    April: Avg. 24,423 daily p/v
    May: Avg. 21,258 daily p/v
    June: Avg. 26,834 daily p/v
    July: Avg. 31,047 daily p/v
    August: Avg. (so far) 34,028 daily p/v

    Except for April (which is when the season starts, therefore people tend to visit at a higher rate), every month goes up a significant amount.

    I've always wanted my site to grow exponentially, and it seems that it is . I don't know whether this is a good thing (I like success), or a bad thing (I want to be able to afford my site).

    Anyway, just wanted to share, to get opinions on whether this is a normal "exponential" growth pattern, and to see if any of you have seen similar patterns in your sites.

    Jim I'm in a similar position to you ie running a sports site with forums albeit soccer.

    I haven't had the chance to really examine my stats too much during the close season but a rough estimate is that the site gets around 60k page views a day at the moment but with the season staring in anger on Saturday I expect this to hit 100k pretty much straight away.

    It will be intresting to see what develops

      Jim, congrats on the growing success your site is.

      I don't think there is really a standard growth pattern for web sites. It depends and varies too much, I'm afraid, and this is especially the case with sports sites.

      I think it's normal to have the increases you're having because it shows you're gaining new regular members every month.
