Monthly Traffic Report – July 2011
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:
You can see that the number of visitors has decreased once again during past month. From the data I have gathered this comes for a couple main reasons:
- Seasonal decrease: I was expecting the traffic to get lower during July and August as many people are on holidays.
- I had no interaction with other bloggers and readers on social networks.
- I didn’t join the discussion by posting comments on other people’s blogs
I’m going to have to start networking again with other bloggers during the upcoming month to grow my traffic again.
Here is a general overview of the sources where dukeo’s traffic has been coming from during the past month.
The shares of each type of traffic didn’t change much: this tends to confirm my hypothesis about a seasonal decrease of traffic.
Top 5 Traffic Sources
Wondering what are the top 5 traffic sources of dukeo.com? Here comes the answer.
Facebook traffic has completely dropped. This is not much of a surprise as I didn’t post any “Who is” post (artist is in holidays). I saw a nice spike in Technorati traffic since some of my posts have been featured in their “blogging” homepage. The traffic from Stumbleupon also increased (I should really put more focus on social bookmarking sites).
