Blogs and Analytics

Authors, I hope you have analytics on your blogs and websites. If not, go the help center for the platform you use and figure out how to install them. Anayltics tells you just about everything you need to know about your readers. Through my analytics, I can see you (okay, not really). But this is what I know about you, my readers.

The top five countries inhabited by my readers are: 
  • United States
  • United Kingdom
  •  India
  • Canada
  • Australia
(I have readers in 69 countries!)

How my readers access me:
  • Most are sitting at their home computers
  • The rest are on devices with the ipad and iphone being the most popular
The top five landing pages:
 Habits of the average visitor are:
  • Views 2.22 pages per visit
  • Reads for 2:54 minutes
  • Bounce rate is 60.94%
  • I receive over 1000 visits per month
Not bad for a baby blog! I love seeing where all of you are from and what you like to read on this blog. The information helps me determine the kinds of posts you enjoy reading most. If you have a blog or website, it's helpful to know how readers are interacting with it so you can tweak your efforts accordingly.

To Do: Install analytics today! If you already have them, take a hard look at them and work with your readers' habits to create a better website!
