Tony Karrer tagged me with his new 2007 Blog Traffic Stats – Hopefully a Meme (hopes its a meme!). OK, I’ll bite, particularly since I rarely look at my stats, but I was curious last week about how my reduced blogging impacted readership on the site. Otherwise I’m a bit oblivious to stats. I do like to see in my Bloglines readers how many subscribers I have. And I know I lost a lot of people when I moved from Blogger to my new WordPress powered site. But that’s cool.
Of course, this tells us nothing about folks who read this blog via their blog readers. Are you one of them? I’d love to know. I’m always curious about people who read this blog but rarely, if ever, actually visit.
Here are my Google Analytics screen captures. After them you will find an interesting disclosure!
There is one page on my website that has nothing to do with my blog but which gets a ton of traffic. It has been on my site since 1997. It is my son’s story about my grandmother’s ravioli recipe! 10% of all pageviews last year!
So, I’m not sure I’ll tag anyone. I have a slight discomfort that it may be implied that there is some sort of competition here. If you feel like doing it on your own, circle back and leave a link and any reflections on what you learned looking at your blog stats.
