The last posting of Analytics Reviewed, I showed you a major spike in traffic to the site. Primarily due to Destin leaving ScrewAttack to move out to San Francisco for a new job opportunity. The question of how often a posting like this should be done was also asked.
There were a lot of different answers, so Destin and I agreed that once a month I would release the analytical information, until people got bored of it. But how can anyone get bored of looking at such wonderful statistics is a mystery to me. (Yes, that is call being facetious.)
So from here on out, until either I or everyone else gets bored of seeing this information, the first Sunday of the new month will have the previous months analytics posted.
So lets take a look overall look at the statistics. Up 453.35%, Wow… Now if the US Economy could do that in a month the government would be out of debt. More than 40 thousand visits to the site as well. Keep in mind that is returning visitors and not the actual uniques. All and all, not shabby by any means for a first month.
There were two large spikes, the largest being March 8th, with 3,227 visits, what caused this spike I am really not sure. However a lot of traffic came in from ScrewAttack. The second largest was on March 22nd where a total of 2,126 visits. Yes there was a bit of a down turn between these dates, but as shows have been posted on a more regular basis the traffic has picked up.
Now lets take a look at what the most popular postings of the month were outside of the homepage.
What!!! Are you kidding me? Not Gaming News 002 was the most popular posting for all of the month of March? What on Earth causes that? That’s almost 4 times the amount of traffic as the Premiere Episode.
Lastly, lets look at some source information. Essentially the “How people got here” information.
The left hand column are the “keywords” people used in the search engines to find The Daily DL, and the right hand column are the different ways people came to the website. It’s all pretty self explanatory, so I won’t drone on and on and on with a mind numbing explanation as to why… blah blah blah… blah.
Next month I will do a comparison of the previous month versus that month. So if analytics drop a lot I am personally blaming everyone else for not postings links up on the web in Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon or Tumblr. So get out there and help try and make a difference.
