We have a very special announcement for Del-Fruit ... we're 1 year old! Woohoo!
So what does this mean? Absolutely nothing! Both Klazen and I wanted to reflect on our progress over the year from the first public release on February 8th, 2015 up until today. It has been one heck of a ride, with many adjustments and changes added to the site. Starting with just a bare-bones review site structure, we have added all sorts of goodies for our users, such as User Pages, Speedrun.com integration, Ownership Claims, and more! We couldn't of been this successful without you, community! Thanks for making Del-Fruit a major staple in the fangame community at large, and we hope to continue to promote the growth and development of fangames and its players everywhere.
Speaking of players everywhere, did you know that there's a large eastern community following on Del-Fruit? With that being said, let's jump into some statistics we've pulled from other the past year, courtesy of Google Analytics! (Note: Data is not 100% accurate, as Google Analytics was not active until mid-May of 2015 ... sorry!)
Nearly 12,000 users are from the U.S. alone! Wow! This is the highest number of users on our site, but in 2nd is a surprising Japan with nearly 5,000 users! The next 3 highest include Russia, South Korea, and Canada, all with about 2,000 users a piece. Neat!
The home page has been uniquely opened over 66,000 times! So what individual game pages have the highest unique pageviews? Take a guess!
The highest single-game unique pageview count belongs to "I wanna take the timemachine" with over 4,000 views!
Following closely is our own community's "I wanna kill the guy" also with just over 4,000 unique views! Wow!
In 3rd we have the predictable "I wanna kill the Kamilia 3" with just under 4,000 unique views. Neat!
Del-Fruit's largest day ever was on August 21st, 2015 with 7,461 page views and peaking at 604 new users 2 days later on August 23rd! Holy cannoli!
Almost 85% of our users use desktop as their go-to for browsing del-fruit! Can't download on mobile, folks!
On average, our users are looking through 6 pages per session, with an average session length of just over 5 minutes! That's longer than most porn sites! In addition to this, each unique user averages 1.5 sessions on the site - that's just about 50% of our visitors returning to the site at some point later on after their first visit! Neat!
An overwhelming majority of our users (over 32,000) use Chrome as their browsing choice, while Firefox and IE (DansGame) trail behind in 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
So where are all of our visitors coming from? It turns out that a overwhelming majority comes from Google (or another search engine) itself! Typing Delicious-Fruit sure seems to bring in the new guys! But, in case you really wanted to know what streamer is "raiding" us the most ...
Over 600 users have come from Bananasaurus_Rex's channel!
Almost 450 users have come from Cirno_TV's channel, the K2/K3 Mountain Challenge, and YoYoYoDude1's channel! Wow!
Almost 400 users have come from ParagusRants' channel and Stinkycheeseone890's! Now that's what I call fangaming!
...oh, and some reddit link fetched another 300+ users in a /r/Games post! ...unexpected, but neat!
That's all the data I can spew out for now! We hope this was a great insight into the massive growth of our site, and how important Del-Fruit has become as the go-to source for community opinions and ratings on all things fangames. We're working on new features for the near future to better include other community members (such as Japan!), so stay tuned!
