Google Glitches?

The page views for The Urban Mystic make no sense at all. According to Google, the most popular month was June 2009. By dividing the chart up into equal sections for each month since The Urban Mystic moved to Google, I calculate that the most popular month was March 2010. All of the most popular posts, accounting for 1/5 of all lifetime views, were written between April and October 2011.

The Google graph omits several months and even years. It starts July 2007, when The Urban Mystic was still on AOL, January 2008 skips directly to February 2009, January 2010 skips to February 2011, and January 2012 skips to February 2013!

What the hell actually happened?
