Day 2 of blog revelations: I took a good, hard look at my webstats for Deckchairs on the Titanic and, after much hand-wringing and deliberation, decided to post the numbers of visitors I’ve been getting. They’re pretty small, about 1/2 the number I had once thought I had, but they’re growing steadily. I’m a big believer in transparency when called for and this exercise in thinking about audiences publicly is fascinatingly choice.
Here’s the short scoop on what kind of audience I’m receiving at this blog:
Average number of daily visitors: 99 (up 30 from October)
Average number of pages visited daily: 276
Top 5 referring websites: Google, Yahoo, Gothamist, Blogosphere, and blo.gs.
Top 3 search strings: titanic, google wack, deckchairs
Interest spiked on the following days in November: 9, 20, 24, and 25
Hourly usage increases between the hours of: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 12 a.m.
