Site Statistics for November 2010

Site Statistics summary for November 2010It is another disappointing month.  Every statistic is down slightly although it probably is within the statistical error.  I did not make any changes to the blog during November so I guess there is no reason to have more readers.  The encouraging news is that readers hold steady.  I interpret this to mean that current readers are engaged with the content.  I will be doing more marketing for the month of December, specifically searching for other blogs in my niche and adding comments.  A survey of my readers suggests that this is the main source of readers.

There is still no Google page rank.  I have no idea what it takes to get Google’s attention or if there is anything that I have not done that I should do to get consideration from Google.  It is just one more thing that I do not know but at least I know that I do not know it.  Finally my Alexa score has improved from 949,666 in October to 722,905 in November.  This seems like substantial improvement but I don’t understand what causes it to change, particularly when other wise the stats are stagnant.

With my commitment to a higher level of marketing in December, I am setting a goal to break out in the stats and reach an average of 15 returning visitors per day.  Tune in next month to find out how I do.

    I’m not sure why you haven’t got a Google page rank Ralph, I assume you have registered with Google Analytics? My other tip is to get a Google email address, it’s a good service anyway,and may help them notice you.

    Where did you get the graph and statstics? It looks a good summary.

      John,
      I am registered with Google analytics and I have a gmail account. My VA who was supposed to be managing SEO for me said it just takes time and they don’t check all the time. I have had this blog up for over a year so I don’t know what else it might take.

      John,
      Didn’t notice all your question. I use statcounter for those stats. It is free and gives me a good perspective.
