Review of Google Nexus 5 from LG

The Google Nexus 5 smartphone from LG might be a year old, but it is still a great phone. The phone delivers great power and value for your money. That is exactly why I bought this phone to replace my old Samsung Galaxy S3. My old Samsung phone, was no longer able to charge the battery, so I needed a new phone badly and did not have all the time in the world to find the replacement. My choice fell on the Google Nexus 5 from LG. After have been using my new Nexus 5 smartphone for about a month now, I thought it would be a good time to write this review, for you guys that might consider to buy this great phone too.

My Blog has been hit by a big evil Google Penguin

As you properly know Google released their Penguin 2.0 algorithm this Wednesday (May 22, 2013). A lot have been said about this update and the full impact is still to be known, but one thing is for sure. This blog (Techwork.dk) was hit, and it has been hit pretty badly. Just overnight I have lost about half my traffic 🙁

Google Analytics

Another quarter of 2011 has passed and it is time for me to share my Google Analytics traffic statistics with you. If you missed my Analytics Report for Q2 you can see it here.

 My Google Analytics Stats for Q3

For the Q3 of 2011 a lot of things have changed in my traffic trends. The main reason for the changes I guess comes with the fact that Google has promoted this blog to a PR3 🙂 That has given me a lot more traffic and specific a lot more traffic from the Google Search Engine. Let’s see on the numbers for Q3:

Traffic types:

For the third quarter of 2011 my traffic types looks like this:

  • Search engines: 47,19%
  • Referring Sites: 33,22%
  • Direct Traffic: 16,20%
  • Other: 3,40%

Search Engines:

Google is still in a league of its own when it comes to Search Engines, but Bing has jumped to the second spot in front of Yahoo:

  • Google: 94,62%
  • Bing 2,15%
  • Yahoo 2,05%

The rest of the Search Engines are all under 1 percent of traffic.

Top 5 Referring Sites:

  1. Stumbleupon.com
  2. Arrastheme.com
  3. Twitter.com
  4. Google.com

Visiting countries in Q3 via Google Analytics

United States are new at number one followed by a lot of English speaking countries. Denmark has dropped to second spot for this country. Another thing worth mentioning is that this blog has had visitors form 132 different counties in the last 3 months.

Conclusion

To sum up my traffic has been growing a lot this quarter 🙂 The fact that this blog is now a PR3 blog has a lot to do with it I guess. I have also been more active on Social media the last couple of months and I think that is a great way to get more traffic as well.

I would love to hear how your traffic has changed the last couple of months. Any new trends you have noticed? Please drop me a comment below.
