Summer Report

30 Jun

Six months ago, we started this website. Now it’s time for summing up a bit. No need to tell us that the stats are oooh sooo boooring, everybody knows it. To add a dieselpunk twist, we’ll mix the numbers with some fantastic creations of Tolga Toykoç aka ttvortex, a concept artist from Turkey (to see higher-resolution images please visit his gallery @ Deviantart).

Now, to the stats. More than 52 thousand visits. Daily average: 283 hits. Not bad. Still we have to work a lot to surpass the success of our Grand Opening (Jan. 1, 2012) – 2,107 visits in one day!

We’ve got some charts handy, Greatest Hits and Lesser Hits as well. Here comes the list of our Most Popular Articles (home page excluded):

  1. Dieselpunk DIY (1,588 hits)

Dieselpunk, as an international phenomenon, attracts people from all over the world. This site’s Global Counter started to function only four months ago, so the data is inconsistent – but nevertheless important.

Visits by Country (Top Ten)

  1. United States (10,560)
  2. Russian Federation (5,835)
  3. Ukraine (2,466)
  4. United Kingdom (1,800)
  5. Germany (1,762)
  6. Canada (1,088)
  7. France (914)
  8. Italy (744)
  9. Australia (714)
  10. Brazil (700)

Our Encyclopedia sparked some interest in countries as distant and different as Mongolia, Senegal, Mauritius and Sri Lanka.

All these results are achieved thanks to our numerous friends who promoted and quoted Dieselpunk Encyclopedia. With more aggressive promotion, especially via the most fashionable social networks, it could turn into a thousand-hits-per-day vehicle, but is it our #1 priority? Definitely not!

The Encyclopedia is here to stay as your independent non-commercial Diesel fuel source, trustworthy and friendly.

Thank you!

    I’m seeing more and more dieselpunk stuff in my google alerts every day. I think this website is and will be a huge resource.
