Assalamualaikum everyone. How are you guys? First of all I would like to say thank you very much for using my newest application SemiAutomatic IIUM Schedule Maker. I expect it to get significant traffic, but not this much. For the record, between 19 April 2014 to today 27 April 2014, the application got 9089 visit or 16928 pageviews, 80% of that is from schedulemaker, 10% from scheduleformatter. In comparison, from january 2012 (the start of the application) to 19 April 2014, it received 9335 visits or 19128 pageviews. Within one week, schedulemaker almost surpassed the amount of traffic generated by scheduleformatter for two whole years.
It is THAT significant. In fact in the first hour after my friend share it, the server’s cpu peaked at 100% for almost half hour. The traffic steadily decreases after that. One interesting fact is that for every day on prereg, the traffic peaked at 11 PM. Assuming that IIUM Student start sorting their schedule at 11 PM is one thing, but actually having the data to say so is a totally different feel.
Frankly I never though that the tools I make because I’m too lazy sort my schedule or make a timetable would get this much traffic, let alone my website with the highest reception. I mean, the number of IIUM student is approximately 20000, google analytic say that there are 5240 users. Lets assume some of them also use their phone/tablet, so the actual number of user is about 4000. So one every five student in IIUM use this application. Someone actually use this.
One again I would like to say thank you very much for using the application. This will look brilliantly in my CV. And thank you to all my friends who share the application. Like usual, if I’m the one who share it, it does not work, but for some reason, if someone else share it, it get hundreds of like. It happened with schedule formatter , it happened with this one and it will happen again in the future. That’s it for now, good bye and Assalamualaikum.
