I decided to spend more time digging into my Google Analytics stats to see if I really have anything to cheer about. Well, yes and no. The good: I’m averaging between 40-60 visitors per day on this blog and 20-25 per day on Scriptzilla. The VLDB site is also pulling decent numbers. And now for the bad: average time on site per visit is 10 seconds. Either I have some of the fastest readers in the Universe (or multiverse, depending upon your platform spin as it were, hee hee), or I draw a lot of people in for none other purpose than to waste their time and make their heads shake like a Parksinson’s patient on Red Bull at a Rap concert. Ok, the stats clearly show it’s the latter. Then again, GA is not very adept at analyzing stats from RSS feeds as far as I can tell.
But here’s some interesting tidbits…
- The largest portion of mobile viewers are using an iPad. I never expected this. The second largest portion is iPhone, then Blackberry at third.
- In the past 30 days, this blog had 1207 new visitors and 337 returning visitors
- The largest referral traffic source is myITForum.com followed by Google
- 640 visitors were from the US. 106 from the UK. 83 from Germany
- My blog is well below the benchmark numbers for most blog sites being tracked by Google Analytics. Well below. As in: well…. below.
- Most people hit the home page and leave. After that, the rest of you fan out into mostly technology-related posts. The spread of visits among the rest is pretty equal.
- Most of my posts are completely stupid and meaningless
- Most of you haven’t read this far so it doesn’t matter what I say here
