Dukeo being a live case study, it’s important to keep track of traffic stats to follow the growth of this blog. I share the REAL stats of this website copied directly from Google Analytics.

Use these traffic reports to keep an idea of the kind of traffic you can generate over time when starting a blog from scratch, without leveraging any other web property.

Unique Visitors and Pageviews

Let’s start with some general data about this month traffic: unique visitors and pageviews. These two indicators are the most commonly used in web statistics. Every webmaster know how many unique visitors he is receiving monthly as well as the number of page impressions. Here is Dukeo’s data for this month:

Unique Visitors and Pageviews

The number of unique visitors grew by a decent 10% during past month. Once again, Dukeo beat its own record of the biggest month in terms of Unique Visitors and also the biggest in terms of Unique Pageviews.

My traffic is growing steadily and it’s time for another month of growth. Let’s see if I’ll reach the 15k pageviews in January…

Traffic Sources

Here is a general overview of the sources where dukeo’s traffic has been coming from during the past month.

Traffic Sources

Search engine traffic is still growing steadily and a little faster than other traffic sources. This explains why the percentage grew again.

Top 5 Traffic Sources

Wondering what are the top 5 traffic sources of Here comes the answer.
Top 5 Traffic Sources

This graph clearly demonstrates that traffic coming from Google is still huge compared to the traffic coming from other sources. It accounts for 6 out of every 10 visitors that Dukeo is receiving.

The traffic coming from Twitter and AffBuzz stayed almost stable during last month. The increase in traffic coming from Feedburner is still a surprise to me. I’ll have to see hwo it evolves next month.

Top 10 Keywords

Following comes the list of the top 10 keywords which brought some traffic from search engines to dukeo.

  1. how to transfer old gmail to new gmail account (75)
  2. caricature body (31)
  3. how to get more twitter followers 2011 (31)
  4. freedom (30)
  5. kong paris (28)
  6. brand strong david a. aaker (25)
  7. john chow (25)
  8. snowflakes falling (19)
  9. add me on facebook (17)
  10. kong restaurant (17)

Since the traffic coming from search engines increased again, it’s no surprise that all the keywords in my Top10 brought at least 17 visitors each (compared to 15 each last month).

Let’s add some interesting information about the number of keywords which are bringing traffic to dukeo.

  • February: 71
  • March: 166 (+134%)
  • April: 329 (+98%)
  • May: 520 (+58%)
  • June: 636 (+22%)
  • July: 828 (+30%)
  • August: 1292 (+56%)
  • September: 1260 (-2.5%)
  • October: 1882 (+49%)
  • November: 2450 (+30%)
  • December: 2740 (+12%)

The number of keywords bringing traffic to Dukeo this month increased once again. However, the growth was less important than previous months. I suppose this is due to the fact that Christmas/NYE has been a really slow time for Dukeo…
