Stats are down again for May. This is disappointing. I was hoping that getting a handle on my niche and more thought about content would produce bigger readership. I guess I am getting ahead of myself. This doesn’t demonstrate that I am not making progress with content. It only shows that you don’t make changes and see results in a heartbeat. I may be providing valuable content for my market but I also need to get the word out. My marketing may be the problem. Time to step it up. I would certainly welcome comments and observations from readers – new and old – about my conclusions, so please chime in with your impressions. It is so easy to mislead yourself.
What interests me is the listing of most popular posts for May. This list continues to show that an old post about our 1950 Chevy pickup truck continues to top the list along with the tags flying and chevy. I don’t know what that tells me or how to use that to draw readers into some of the other content. Nostalgic car posts seem to dominate further down the list. I continue to create new nostalgic car posts but they don’t draw the readers through search engine activity. It seems like there is something good happening with these. I just don’t know what to do to take advantage of it. If any readers get ideas or suggestions to share with me from these stats, please share.
