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:
The number of unique visitors grew by a very nice 15% 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 20k pageviews in February…
Here is a general overview of the sources where dukeo’s traffic has been coming from during the past month.
For once, search engine traffic didn’t grow that much compared to other traffic sources. The different percentages stayed quite steady.
Top 5 Traffic Sources
Wondering what are the top 5 traffic sources of dukeo.com? Here comes the answer.
This graph clearly demonstrates that traffic coming from Google is still very impressive compared to the traffic coming from other sources. It accounts for over 6 out of every 10 visitors that Dukeo is receiving.
The traffic coming from Twitter completely crashed. This is mostly due to me quitting Triberr. I joined the website a few months ago and it was bringing some decent traffic to me. However, not so long ago, the admins of that service decided to change the way ot works and as a result you can’t put it on auto-pilot anymore. Result: traffic crash.
