I find google analytics fascinating and check it daily just to see who has checked out this blog. Most sites/blogs seem to keep that information hush hush, but I want to try to break that trend by putting analytic information out in the open and hopefully learn something in the process about my site and my readers.
I've posted a few times before on how Adobe Feeds has increased my traffic. Today I want to just throw out some general stats from the past three months (The blog has been around for 4, but I didn't add analytics until 1 month in).
Visits Per Month:
Posts Per Month:
July: 8 (as of today.. and yes, I know I am slacking)
Search Engines: 52%
Referring Sites: 33%
Direct Traffic: 15%
Referring Sites Total Hits:
The rest is either google, direct, or things like netvibes, twitter, and blogger.
Other random tid bits:
- Over 65% of my readers use Firefox, only 17% use IE. 13% Use safari. (Not your typical distribution)
- The blog has been visited by 96 different countries.
- The most hits received on a single day was 209 on July 17th.
If you have any questions, please fire away. I want to keep this blog as transparent as possible.
