The Brockley Zeitgeist 2012

Earlier this month, Brockley Central received its two millionth visit (from 570,000 unique visitors). However, the disappointing lack of summer riots and the fact that everyone had something better to do during the Olympics and Paralympics meant that traffic growth was relatively low this year (589,020 visits compared with 573,221 in 2011, an increase of 2.7%). Here are the rest of the year's stats, courtesy of Google Analytics.

Top 30 search terms (excluding 'Brockley', 'Brockley Central' and their various fat-fingered variants). New entries for 2012 in red:

1. The Gantry
2. Tickle Me
3. Brockley Market
4. Mo Pho
5. Brockley Social Club
6. Deptford Market
7. Community garden grants
8. Reyna
9. The Allotment
10. Brockley Mess
11. Arlo and Moe
12. Cleaner
13. Dog show
14. Carpet fitter
15. Crofton Park shooting
16. The Talbot
17. Aladdin's Cave
18. Historical map
19. Cascade window cleaning
20. Catford Bridge Tavern
21. Alby
22. Japanese knotweed
23. Blackheath Olympics
24. Electrician
25. Fresh yeast
26. Crofton Park Library
27. Location
28. Ashby Works
29. Catherine House
30. Deptford Lounge

It's striking how much change there is this year, in comparison with previous years. This reflects the number of recent new arrivals, not only in Brockley, but in Deptford and New Cross. There's also been renewed interest in old stalwarts like the Brockley Social Club, Tickle Me and The Talbot, which don't have their own websites.
