November was an up and down month. It started off great. I had three posts published the first week, along with 8 YouTube videos for the 90 day video challenge. And then came the election. I am not a Trump supporter and I have some very deep concerns about the next four years. But, I didn’t expect the results to have such an impact on me emotionally and physically. I pretty much lost all motivation. Now that it’s December, I’m out of my funk, thank god. But, I expected my Traffic Report for November to be lower than October. Surprisingly my statistics were up. Now, I’m not sure if this is due to more social media, or if it was the secret.google.trump spam that affected google analytics. Either way, I’ve solved that problem for December’s report, which I’ll publish in January.
So here we go, November’s traffic report. I’ll also show October’s traffic report for comparison.
November Traffic Report
- Unique page views – 611 (+65%)
- Bounce rate – 5.39% (-78%)
- Sessions – 557 (+122%)
- Users – 335 (+139%)
October Traffic Report
- Unique page views – 371
- Bounce rate – 25%
- Sessions – 250
- Users – 140
So what did I do differently? Well, in November, I went back to using Facebook Groups as a means of promotion. As I said earlier, I was really gung ho the first 8 days of the month. Then, I took a mental hiatus and didn’t pick it up again until the end of the month. So, I’m happy with my stats, since they are moving in the right direction.Blogging is not for people who want or need instant gratification. There are no shortcuts.
