It is time for another Google Analytics report from me. Another quarter has gone and it has without doubt been the best this blog has ever had. In case you missed my last report you can see it here. My traffic got a big organic traffic boost in the beginning of February and from that day on my overall traffic almost doubled. I guess the increase must have something to do with a Google algorithm change however my PR is still the same (PR3).
My Google Analytics Stats for Q1 2012
- Search Engines: 73.48%
- Referring Sites: 13.57%
- Direct Traffic: 11.86%
- Twitter: 0.63%
- Other: 0.46%
- Google: 94.42%
- Yahoo: 3.03%
- Bing: 0.70%
Google is still in top of the world in front of Yahoo and Bing. The rest of the Search Engines are all under 0.5 percent of traffic.
Top 5 Referring Sites:
2. t.co (Twitter)
This quarter there are two new Referring Sites in top 5. The first one is t.co that in case you don’t know it is traffic from Twitter. I have seen a lot of other bloggers talking about how great Twitter is to promote yourself and how much traffic you can get from Twitter, but it have not really worked out for me until now. One of the reason why it might work out now is that I simply just have got more followers (above 500) and another reason might be that I have implemented the Tweet old post plug-in to auto tweet some of my old post when I sleep myself. The other new Referring Site on my Top 5 this quarter is Triberr. Triberr is, in case you don’t know it, a Twitter based network where you can be invited to join your Twitter friends tribes and then kind of agree to retweet each other’s new blog post. I am in 3 different tribes at the moment where we share each other posts. In some of those tribes there are people with more than 10.000 followers sharing my blog posts. That gives me a change to reach a lot bigger audience compared to when I tweet to my own 500 followers.
1. United States
4. United Kingdom
My Top 10 Countries are the exact same as last quarter, but some of them have switch position on the list. In this first quarter of 2012 my blog have had visitors from 160 different countries.
To sum things up this first quarter of 2012 had been awesome to me when it comes to generate traffic to my blog. As you can see below I have more than doubled my traffic for this quarter compared to the last quarter of 2011. This increase is mainly due to the big increase in incoming organic traffic. This tells me that all my hard work on SEO and link building for this blog are beginning to pay off and that is a great motivation and inspiration for me to continue my work
