    Thanks for the info, so I can see that most of the traffic is coming from Twitter not search engine, how do you explain that? Do you have any yips for using StumbleUpon to get traffic? Why there’s no traffic from Facebook I believe you have Facebook page isn’t ?

    1. Well, it’s not “most” of the traffic, it’s only 25% of it.

      The explanation is simple: I put the emphasis on bringing more traffic to my site from Twitter because I like the community there.

      There is some traffic from Facebook. It’s just not in the top 5.

    I am seeing the similar stats on my blog (albeit smaller volumes), and my corporate web site. It seem search engines are now a much lower source of overall traffic than they were. However, what it seems difficult to assess is where the ‘good’ hits come from – by good, I mean people that read the article and act upon it, leaving feedback or react in some way, versus the person that has a quick glance and moves on. My hunch is the search engine traffic will be higher quality, with visitors specifically looking for info about the blog subject.

    1. Colin, the increase of traffic percentage coming from other sources (than google) makes sense.

      The more work we put into getting traffic from Social Media, the more traffic we will receive. It’s really not rocket science.

      As to knowing the value of the traffic coming from various sources, you can track some “goals” in Google Analytics. As a result, I know exactly what percentage of visitors from each source is subscribing to my newsletter, clicking on affiliate links…

    Your sites mobile version looks good, Steven, but lacks a search option. On a site this size, it would be a nice feature.


    Goodness, Steven, you’re requiring novels in comments, now?

    I thought the suggestion about search was something useful.

    Is there a better tool to collect traffic stats from users that are not seen by Google Analytics? I tend to give more weight to the stats package from HostGator where my site resides at.

    What do you think?

    1. what stats do you think are missing from Google Analytics?

    2. Tony Greene

      Google Analytics is flawed because it doesn’t accurately count visits if the code is 1. not embedded properly 2. If javascript is disabled on visitor computer, no traffic triggered, and 3. Server side stats reflect a more accurate count of traffic.
