If there’s an underappreciated benefit of blogging, it’s diving into the analytics to understand what content resonates, how it is found and what not only captures attention but also keeps it.
Here are a few statistics:
a. Geography. Most people that spent time with this blog come from the US, followed by the UK, India and Canada.
b. Sources of traffic. Google organic consistently ranks as the top sources of traffic. The next highest ranking is direct visitors, followed by Twitter and Feedburner, which I use for RSS.
c. Social bookmarks. StumbleUpon has a substantial lead over Delicious, Digg and Reddit as social bookmarks I’m most active on. Personally, I use Delicious the most to maintain carefully organized bookmarks I want to save for reference (hoping someone will buy it from Yahoo). I’m not a big user of Reddit, merely sampling it at this point for comparison purposes.
d. Browsers. More visitors use Firefox than any other browser. Internet Explorer is a distant second followed by Chrome and Safari.
