Want To Peek At My Blog Stats?
Hello. My name is Kathryn, and I’m a blog stat junkie.
It totally makes my day when I find a site that has bravely made its statistics public. What is there not to love about being invited to spy into someone’s private work space. Totally addictive.
Given how great my visitors have been, it only seems fair to let you peek a bit behind my curtain and see some Sitemeter and Statcounter screenshots.
Today, via Sitemeter, I’ve officially reached 100,000 page views.
The overwhelming majority of my traffic has been in the last six months.
This is especially obvious when you look at my Statcounter info, which goes back to September 2006 when I first posted.
Back then my blogging platform was iWeb rather than WordPress – a huge mistake if you want Google searchers to actually find you. Also, my blog topics were pretty scattered.
Since focusing on machine knitting, using WordPress, and eliminating the least interesting posts, traffic has boomed. I’ve had as many page loads in the last 14 days as I’ve had in the first 7 out of 9 quarters of my entire existence.
For 2009, I’ll continue my photo tutorials, tackle Level 1 of TKGA Master Machine Knitting Program, and add to my free patterns. Given we all use different knitting machines, I’ll try to make sure in any given month, there is something for everyone.
Realistic Goals For 2009
500 RSS subscribers
1000 daily visitors
Dream Goals For 2009
1000 RSS Subscribers
2000 daily visitors
I’m shooting for the dream list. I’ll be happy if I reach the more realistic targets. The only control I have is to produce posts that knitters, and especially machine knitters, want to read.
