1 Year of MathHammer for 8th Edition Warhammer 40K

Its been about a year since MathHammer was born...


Approximate Reading Time: 2 minutes

It’s been about a year since I bought the domain name for MathHammer. And I thought I’d share some of that journey with you. 

100,000 page views!

In that year there have been 100,000 page views of the MathHammer web page. Which, is nothing short of amazing, to be honest.

Over 40% of that traffic comes from Google – thanks to being number one in Google for various MathHammer and MathHammer 8th Edition terms.

The top refereeing website is this blog. Unsurprisingly I plug my own stuff. Haha. Followed by the Bolter and Chainsword forum.

Never miss an article?

23,000 unique users

Facebook was the bigger social contributor with 2,200 clicks from Facebook to MathHammer.

Most users came from the USA, Canada and the U.K.

For 23 hours of each day, there are at least two people using MathHammer. This might be because people leave it open for long periods of time? Or perhaps pin it in their browser.

I’ve made 25 sets of updates over the year. Which doesn’t sound like a lot, but for a little side project, it’s a decent rate of feature releases and bug fixes.

I don’t have data on the number of stats crunched in MathHammer however. It’s just a standalone script that runs in a browser. It doesn’t need the server to calculate and doesn’t need to log stats or events. This is simply so it’s faster. But sadly that means I cannot say with pride that X million models have been killed.

Money – 1 Year of MathHammer

This is always interesting, isn’t it!

I make enough to cover the cost of the domain and hosting, which is cheap. Donations are nearly none existent. I have 4 monthly donations at the moment via Paypal which nets me about £2.88 a month.

If you would like to donate, that would be great! Button below…

Summary

If this sounds like a boast, it’s probably because it is! It’s nice to make something and have it be successful even if it’s only in a minor way. It may also make others think about creating their own projects to share with the world.

If you have an idea, get in touch and we can bounce ideas around…

Back to tournament prep.
