Yesterday must have been a record day at Autocade with 41,000 page views recorded in 24 hours. What I didn’t realize was that we have crossed the 33 million page view mark, since the counter was reset in March 2022 and I forgot what I needed to add to get the total.
The last recorded total on the old installation was 27,647,011, and presently it’s on 5,452,097, totalling 33,099,108. We must have hit the 33 million mark last week—and that means a great return to form for Autocade, as it took only two months to net the latest million.
It’s good to know that switching to a secure server didn’t damage traffic, as it had done for other sites of ours, and that my pushing to add content (4,808 models at the time of writing, versus 4,723 when we had 32 million) has (figuratively) paid dividends.
We may have well got there when the latest Luxgens were being added last week, but as is custom on this blog, the latest entry is for the current southeast Asian Toyota Yaris Cross, a different car to the Yaris Cross sold in Japan, Europe and Down Under.

Back to where we were in 2021. We know 2022 was low because Bing had collapsed, though for Lucire and Autocade it has recovered somewhat, recording 2,170 results for Autocade now versus 10 to a few dozen last year. For comparison, Google claims 2,910, still remarkably low given the 4,800-plus entries (this must be a consequence of HTTPS or just Google’s difficulty with dynamic content), while Mojeek beats them both on 3,103, since it behaves like a normal search engine when you switch to secure serving.
It’s a very nice, bright spot and very pleasing to see.
