Have you ever (I’m sure you have) looked at your blog’s stats? Very interesting. I must admit that I am surprised by my stats. The blogs that I think I did the best on did not get as many page views as some that I thought were just so-so.
So far, my blog that got the most pageviews was the one I posted on Oct. 6, 2010 and titled “Pig and Sky Updates”. It had 134 page views and 5 different readers commented. My pageview graph looks like a parabola or a mountain; starting at zero climbing at a gradual sloping incline to the peak and then coming back down a lot steeper than it went up. That is not a good sign. What am I doing wrong?
I guess I have run out of all my good ideas or my novelty has worn off. I do know that I have used most of my best trip pictures. I do have a lot of pictures of my trips but I only put one trip per posting and only a few of the pictures.
Another thing that the stats show you is from what countries the pageviews are coming from. Here is my list in descending order. Of course the U.S. is first, then Canada, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Honduras, Netherlands, Russia, Australia, Brazil, and South Korea. It also gives you a breakdown on what operating systems and browsers were used.
Raw information is great, it is how it is interpreted that puts meaning to it. There can be many and varied explanations that would fit the stats.
I just hope that I can please someone somewhere with my postings. I will try to do better, I promise. . .
OK, today is dog grooming day and I have to get the three scroungy looking dogs loaded up in the Jeep and delivered and then later in the day go pick up those charming and beautiful Shih-Tzu dogs that we will bring back home.
BTW it was cold here this morning, got down below freezing for awhile.
