A quieter month until GS (and Pokken) released. Specifically GS and not Crystal. :V

The Raw Numbers
September total views: 58,072 (August: 53,823, July: 73,729)
September total visitors: 40,970 (August: 37,954, July: 54,349)
September average views/day: 1,936 (August: 1,736, July: 2,378)
Daily High Score: 4,066 (Best ever: 78,064 views, August: 3,141)
Lowest Score (for a full day): 1,169 (August: 1,274, July: 1,500)
Number of 100+ days: 30 (August: 31, July: 31)

Image of hits/day:


That 80% boost. :V Minor boost a touch beforehand thanks partly to the review we could do of Pokken for Switch.

Articles visited since start of month until 1st Oct:

(Note that articles posted in the month have the orange tab to the left. Those with < 30 hits in the month were cut for image size.)
A lot of people were obviously wondering about playing Crystal or finding out why they couldn't. Take notes, TPCi! Transferring to Bank was another quite popular topic unsurprisingly (not the first time the article was popular - we updated it.).

Of the GS guides we did, the Shiny one did the best - good call, SirBoglor. The other two didn't go quite as well as maybe hoped (still decent mind), which with hindsight I attribute to there being a lot of resources out there for years already. Shiny breeding in gen 2 is a more niche topic.

As for other articles, the Pokken review got over 500 views which is decent too. People like hats on Pikachu and new Ultra Beast news, and the mapping routes tutorial/insurgence review also did well. Good to see well-performing rom hacking/fangame articles. Rest were basically news articles.

Google-specific stats ('clicks' = views, lower than total stats):

c r y s t a l
Search engines terms (what people put in anything but Google to get to the magazine.

(Removed those that gave only one click.)
And again.

Google search terms by clickthrough rate (CTR; top 50):

(Removed those that gave only one click.)
Mostly SM question searches here.

The funny and weird searches (that got clicks, and including google) include:
pokemon dule [4 hits]
pokemon kristall virtual console [also 4 hits. alternate spelling?]
punch out wii
warum kein kristall eshop
pokemon go spoofer tingkat kematian 1 agustus 2017
pokemon gen 1 virtual console my mew has 229 hp 173 attack 145 def 201 speed 233 special is it shiny
does frargetched come out at night or day in pokemon silver in wild in pokemon silver
red blue wally pokemon sm
pokemon old man alcohol
Google's top clicked pages (top 50):

Crystal article is listed twice because the url changes when we updated (original redirects to the newer). Shows that explanatory articles can do quite well! It beat out all the guide articles twice over after all.

Referrers (what sites people came from to visit the magazine):

Facebook went up slightly but Twitter/Youtube/Reddit went down. Search engines increase by some 5,000.

Clicks (links clicked in articles)

Bulba, reddit and then twitter.

Country breakdown:

US on top. Netherlands, Germany and Brazil rejoined the 1,000/month club.
