Selected Usage Statistics for 2004 - 2022


Since 2008, we have only occasionally monitored website traffic. Up to that time* we believed that statistics were necessary to prove to volunteers that their contribution of time was meaningful and to sources that their cooperation was beneficial to them. Some additional data was collected from 2017-18 and 2021-22. During 2017-18, the month with the highest number of visits was April, 2018 at 142,084 and for page views, March at 894,284. In February 2021, an issue with TFAO's hosting service caused almost all days to be unrecorded. More recent data is shown below.

We changed our hosting provider in mid-April, 2022. New stats started then.

Usage reports for 2004-2005 were provided by Live Stats, a service of DeepMetrix Corporation. The 2006 and later statistics were compiled by Webalizer.

Accurately measuring individual human visitors to's web site is complicated by instances where more than one person uses a browser while a session is in progress. Also, traffic to, kept live to preserve bookmarks set prior to the initiation of, may not be fully included in statistics after 2004.
