I have decided to start doing traffic reports for my two websites (this one and The Traveling Gals). I am doing this to create more accountability for myself, to share tips on what worked and didn’t work, and give more of an insight into some of the work I do!
Growing a blog/website and social media accounts is definitely more of a marathon than a sprint, which can get frustrating. Hopefully this will give some guidance, but I’m mostly doing this to keep myself focused and on track!
This first report is going to be about September 2017 traffic and social media. This will be the baseline going forward for growing the sites and social media accounts. (Or at least the intent is to grow them!)
FYI: The goals for these two sites are different, which is why I have more detailed metrics for The Traveling Gals.
So first, let’s look at my travel blog: The Traveling Gals.
Unique page views: 601
Bounce rate: 86.67%
New posts: 1 (Review: Royal Caribbean’s Empress of the Seas)
Social Media Followers
Next we will look at this lovely website, AEE Marketing!
Page views: 33
Facebook followers: 24
New posts: 0
So, not too bad! I am excited to do this monthly and see these numbers grow! One of my biggest obstacles right now is consistency. You may have heard this before, but consistency is key. I am working on a blog planner and social media content calendar to keep a more consistent posting schedule.
I hope you will find these traffic reports interesting! If not, please feel free to ignore and check out some other articles on the blog!
Have a wonderful day!
