Introduction

    The Hector Berlioz Website was created in July 1997, but statistics on the usage of the site were not available until June 2002. Initially our service provider made use for web statistics of the programme Webalizer (www.webalizer.org) until October 2005; in November 2005 they changed to AWStats (Advanced Web Statistics — www.awstats.org), which they have continued to use ever since. Both programmes provide similar data on web usage, though they present them in different formats, and also calculate them differently. From an examination of their data it seems that Webalizer is less strict than AWStats, and tends to provide higher figures for similar categories than does AWStats. The data provided by the two different programmes, though internally consistent, should not therefore be compared directly with each other. We have drawn attention to this by highlighting in different colours the last set of figures provided by Webalizer (October 2005) and the first set of figures provided by AWStats (November 2005). It will be seen that in every category the Webalizer figures for October are higher than those of AWStats for November, though viewing figures for November in all other years are otherwise invariably higher than those of the preceding month.

    From the start in June 2002 we have kept monthly records of the principal data provided by the two programmes. Initially the information was published by us in the Site Statistics page on the site (this page) in a rudimentary format, which in time became more detailed; this was reorganised in February 2012 and continued in the new format till January 2021.

    In February 2021 the page was completely revised and rewritten in a format which should now be definitive. As a first step this involved checking every entry from the records in our archive. In a small number of cases some data were missing on the server, and occasionally the accuracy of individual entries seemed doubtful (as a result of malfunctioning of the programme on the server). In such instances the relevant entries have been highlighted to draw them to the attention of the viewer.

    The second step was to amend the categories used to display the viewing statistics of the site. Of the three categories in the 2012-2021 version of this page two have been retained: Hits, and Total visits, though the latter has been renamed Pages. The third, called Number of different pages viewed, has been removed, as it did not report data in a consistent way, and in any case did not bring out clearly the number of visits and visitors to the site. To compensate for this two new categories have been added, with the shorthand title respectively of Visitors and Visits. The four categories now correspond closely to those reported by AWStats on their monthly summary page, and are presented in the same ascending order of magnitude as they are by AWStats. The figures are taken directly from AWStats (and from the equivalent categories of Webalizer up to October 2005). The detailed description of the four categories is as follows:

    The table below gives a detailed picture of the usage made of the site over a period of years. It reveals for example fluctuations at different periods of the year; generally speaking visits are most frequent during school, college and university terms, but slacken during holidays, especially during the summer months of July and August. The table also shows fluctuations over longer periods of time. For example, the rise in the frequency of visits to the site in 2002 and 2003 is clearly associated with the celebrations for the bicentenary of Berlioz’s birth in December 2003; interest in the composer was sustained thereafter for many years. More recently, the Covid pandemic of 2020-2021 has clearly resulted in a significant drop in visits to the site: one of the many effects of the pandemic was to cause many public events to be cancelled worldwide, including concerts and performances at theatres and opera houses. How far these activities will be able to resume in the future only time will tell.
