  • Script Download Counts

    December 1, 2016

    PowerShell

    I am now tracking the download counts as of the first day of each month. This allows those who contribute scripts and tools to track the counts so they have the data for their community contribution data reported for CTPs, MVPs, vExperts, or employer requested data.

    At the bottom of this article is a table showing the differences in download counts so anyone can see just how popular a particular download is.

    Sometime during the night of 5-Nov-2021 and early morning of 6-Nov-2021, the script downloads count broke 600,000. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. All the script testers, contributors, authors, and I thank you. We are glad you find all the scripts and files useful.

    On 28-Sep-2019, the script downloads broke the 500,000 downloads barrier. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Along with the other script authors and contributors, we are glad you find these scripts useful.

    On 25-Jan-2018, the script downloads broke 400,000 downloads.

    I recently took the time to find out the original release date for every script and file and calculate the average monthly downloads. What I found out is that the scripts and files as of 30-Apr-2022, have had 128 consecutive months where every script has had at least one download. That is over ten years of consecutive months with downloads. WOW! Thank you community for your support.

    In February 2022, I added 13 PDFs to the downloads. While their download counts appear in the total downloads, I do (will) not count the PDFs towards the months of consecutive downloads.

    Note: You may notice a considerable jump from the 1-Feb-2018 to the 1-Mar-2018 download count. Let me explain. In February 2018, I moved all the download files from Dropbox to Citrix ShareFile. Because of that move, I searched everything on my site for the word “dropbox” to change all links to ShareFile. While making the hundreds of required changes, I came across several scripts I had forgotten about and had never put on the Downloads page. One of those scripts had almost 10,000 downloads, and I never knew it. I used Google Analytics going back to June 2013 to get all the download counts for the forgotten scripts. I decided not to spend hours gathering monthly download counts and updating all the counts for 57 months. I was lazy and decided to lump all the new download counts into the February 2018 stats. This decision also means the average daily downloads for February 2018 are skewed.
