ActiveRain=Website Visits... Check Out The Google Analytics For My Website!
I've always wondered how many visits I get as a direct result of my blogging on ActiveRain. Well, today I decided to find out (in all my spare time).
First, a little history. We started Summit Home Consultants in January/2009, and launched our website in April/2009. Soon after that, I wrote my first blog. It's funny to go back and read it today, and amazing to see how much I've learned in such a short period of time.
Today, 18 months and 88 blogs later, I decided to see how many website visits I could attribute to my blogging efforts on ActiveRain. Needless to say, I was astounded by the results....
I apologize for the "fuzziness" of the picture. This is a snapshot of my Google Analytics Page. The date range is from 4/1/09-8/19/10.
As you can see, my website had a total of 7,187 visits, and ActiveRain accounted for 1,842 of them. I had more visitors come from my blogs on ActiveRain than both "direct" or organic Google searches. Obviously, I need to improve my organic search numbers (and Katerina Gasset is helping me to do just that, as we speak).
So, at the end of the day, my blogging on ActiveRain represented approximately 26% of the visitors to my website. There were 185 different referral sources, and one of them (ActiveRain) represents about 1/4 of my total visits.
Pretty impressive huh? And to think what the numbers would have been, had I written on a more consistent basis!
So, the next time you read a blog from someone, saying they've posted on ActiveRain and haven't seen any results, perhaps you should point them to this post? The proof is in the pudding!
I can't wait to see everyone in Prescott! Lord knows I still have a lot to learn! Keep blogging!
