Above is Searching The Clouds’ views and visitors for the five months that it has been on the World Wide Web.
As you can see, I had the highest amount of visitors in November, along with the highest number of views. In November I published my interview of Heather Vogel Frederick, and she linked to my blog with her blog, the main reason I got so many visitors/views. I don’t think January has been very eventful, yet it was still the month with the second most amount of views.
Here are my most popular topics I have written about.
Apparently my reviews and blog features are popular, namely my two reviews of Divergent and Insurgent. Also, (surprisingly to me) my Wednesday Playlist was viewed as well.
Should that be my blog feature of 2014? I would be killing two birds with one stone – my 2o14 resolution to start a blog feature and my whole purpose of this post, to find out how to capture a few more viewers. Should I try to start something that might become as successful as Top Ten Tuesdays? Or would it flop like my Pin It! Mondays?
And finally here are my top 12 most viewed posts.
I was surprised about most of these, especially my About page and my Under Construction! post.
(Below is just a bonus – skip it if you’d like)
This doesn’t have anything to do with my stats, really, but I thought it was cool how I have gotten views from all over the world (I was especially excited about my 1 view in Latvia – awesome!)
Anyway, at this point you all might be wondering…what does this have to do with Star Wars? Well, I was thinking. Since my Divergent tags got some of the most views and my Evening with Heather Vogel Frederick got some of the most views and visitors, maybe mentioning something that is well-known and liked will get your blog more views and visitors.
I am going to do some experiments, and let you know how it goes. In order for this to work, I will need you to visit my blog whenever the fancy strikes you. Do as you normally do. You might not even be able to tell.
Check back in a month? Does that sound right? Maybe just 4 weeks.
I’m excited to see how my little experiment works out.
Oh, and as a part of my research I’m going to use some random but popular tags to see if that causes STC to get more views/visitors.
