‘Dive Into HTML5’ Stats

Mark Pilgrim, on the analytics for the web edition of his Dive Into HTML5 website:

  • 98.7% of the search engine traffic came from Google. Less than 1% came from Bing. The rest came from search engines that I didn’t know still existed.

  • John Gruber sent me three times as much traffic as Bing.

Let’s make it more: Dive Into HTML5 is a remarkably good book. Detailed, comprehensive, and carefully written. Pilgrim is a natural teacher.

Another neat stat: despite the popularity of the free web edition, the print edition from O’Reilly is selling very well, too. (Perhaps it’s selling well because of the free web edition.)
