My Google Analytics Stats Report for Q3 2012

Google Analytics

Google AnalyticsEach quarter of the year I write a post about how my traffic statistics have been for the last 3 months according to Google Analytics. Now it is time for my 3. quarter report of 2012.

Woot woot my blog is a PR4 Blog but….

In the beginning of August I realized that Google had made another Page Rank update. I went to check if there had been any change or if my Blog still were a PR3 blog. I was very happy and surprised to find that my blog was promote to a PR4 blog 🙂 Well that was just great, but only a couple of days later I read that Google Page Rank does not have much impact on Google Search result anymore 🙁
It is always difficult to know what is right and wrong when it comes to Google’s Search Engine’s algorithm, but if I look at my numbers of the last 3 months my promotion have not had any positive impact on my organic traffic since I was promoted in early August.

My Google Analytics Stats for Q3 2012

Traffic Types

  • Search Engines: 73.36% 
  • Direct Traffic: 12.19% 
  • Referring Sites: 12.24%
  • Campaigns: 2.21% (Feed burner)

Search Engines

How my Search Engines traffic was spread across the 3 big Search Engines: Google, Bing and Yahoo. Notice that I still get more traffic from Yahoo than from Bing. Will Bing ever be able to be any serious competition to Google?

  • Google: 94.88%
  • Yahoo: 2.89%
  • Bing: 1.05%


Top 5 Referring Sites:

  6. Canada
  7. Sweden
  8. Finland
  9. Netherlands
  10. Germany

My traffic by country is almost the same as in my last report. Only new country is Finland (Nokia land).

Conclusion on my Traffic Report

Compared to Q2 I had a little drop in traffic (22.670 vs. 21.757 visits). I saw a big drop in the middle of August, but it is back on the same level as the start of August. It is a little bit disappointing for me that I have not been able to improve my traffic over last quarter, but I think I can improve in the last quarter of 2012.

How about you. How has your traffic been for the last couple of months? Any thoughts you will like to share? Please drop me a comment below.

Rename Multiple Files with Bulk Rename Utility

Boring taskI think we all have been there. You have hundreds or maybe thousands of pictures taken with a digital camera on your hard drive and decide to start organize them with better describing filenames than the default names that the camera have given the pictures. It is not a very fun task and it seems like a never ending story. Have you been there? Did you renamed all the files manually or did you quit the task?

What is new in Windows Server 2012


The last couple of days I have been testing the new Windows server 2012 Operating System from Microsoft. As you maybe already know it is built on the same code platform as Windows 8 also introducing Tiles instead of the classic desktop from earlier editions of Windows Server. Just like in Windows 8 the classic desktop is still there, but the Start Menu has gone. If you want to test it yourself you can Download a free 180 days evaluation copy of Windows Server 2012 For my test environment I use VMware Player to create a virtual server on top of my Windows 7 Installation.
