So those that are blogger often get the question. "How many unique visitors do you have?" When I started blogging. I dreaded this question. I often would not reply or reply with well my number is this but....
Ahh the good old Google Analytics! I can track where all my traffic comes from. How googles my website on google, how they google it. I can also see If I get hits off another website. Say you have my button on your blog and someone reading your blog clicks it. If that person hasn't been to my site before that counts as one hit!
I started out with about 2,00 hits month then it was 4,000, then 6,000. It is holding steady at about 5-8,000 per month. Now, those numbers may seem good. companies often want to see 5,000 or more. Other companies 5,000 (if we are talking the value of money) Is more like $2.00.
Now, There are all sorts of ways to track hits. None of which always match up. There is Alexa, blog.grader.com, google analytics, and I am sure there are more. Why these numbers are easy and hard to come by. They are annoying! If I do not post for a long time, my numbers go down, If I don't facebook, twitter, or anything. My numbers go down. SO I have to work really hard to keep my blog up to date and fresh and new topics. On my end, it gets strenuous. Always having things to do. I love it. It is honestly kind of a rush! I love blogging and I love helping people. I get about 4 emails a week asking me questions on how to starts a blog like mine. Can I help them do something. Can I make a design. All sorts of thing!
I just also wanted to note because I have to cut this short as kids are calling!! On Mondays No matter how active I am. I always get spikes in my traffic during that day! My numbers go up!
Remember to sign up for my emails on the right side! Don't Forget Brownie Points ARE rewarded. It never hurts to share my site with friends!
Leave suggestions below! I will do MY best to answer to them ALL!
