My Google Analytics Traffic Report for Q4 – 2015
It is time for my last Google Traffic Report of 2015. I can believe that 2015 is already gone and 2016 is here. As always when a quarter of the year has ended I take a look back on my blog traffic to see how it went and what I can do better in the new quarter.
- Search Engines: 43.12%
- Direct traffic: 35.57%
- Social traffic: 11.12%
- Referring Sites: 10.11%
My share of traffic coming from Search Engines has dropped a couple of percent since last report, but not something to worry about just now. My overall traffic is still steady.
Organic traffic (Search Engines Only)
- Google: 83.86%
- Bing: 10.97%
- Yahoo: 3.03%
- Ask: 0.82%
- Baidu: 0.84%
My traffic from Google has dropped about 5% and Bing is up about 3%. Interesting to see if that is a trend that will continue over the months to come. I still don’t have much faith in Bing as a real contender for Google’s Search Engine.
Top 5 Referring Sites
I still see a lot of referring spam in my referring statistics, but I have cleaned out the spam this time to get a more realistic view on where my “real” referring traffic comes from. Techtutorials.net is still my number one.
- United States
- United Kingdom
Denmark and United States switch place and Netherlands is new on the list, but other than that my Top 10 Visitors by Country is exactly the same than in Q3 2015.
Key Numbers of Q4 2015
- Number of Visits to my blog: 7357 visits Vs 7560 visits in my Q3 2015 report (-2.69%)
- My Bounce Rate is: 71.96%
Conclusion of my Traffic Report
My overall conclusion on this report must be that Q4 is pretty much the same as Q3 when it comes to traffic. I had a little drop in overall traffic and my traffic from Search Engines was also dropping a bit. Nothing to be alarmed about at all, but of cause, I always look for improvements. However, my bounce Rate dropped a bit too which is good. How did your 2015 end when it comes to traffic generation to your blog? Please drop me a comment below.
