Hello Thursday TNB Readers!
Another Statistics blogger tip for you this week (aren’t statistics fun!) – this time having to do with your best posts.
One of the things you can look at when you’re reading through your stats are your Entry Pages – these are the pages that people either typed into their browser, bookmarked, or clicked a link to directly. Obviously the #1 entry page will be your blog homepage, but other entry pages will give you an idea of what people are finding interesting about your blog.
Another thing to look at are your google searches, though, much like your entry pages, these can contain weird flukes and sometimes provide amusement.
What’s the point of looking through this kind of stuff? Well, one of the things that will keep people coming back to your blog is how accessible the information is. If you know that the majority of your readers keep coming back because of your blacksmithing tips, you might consider adding a widget or blogroll section of “All Star Posts” – things that have proven popular over time.
The other kind of “best posts” are the ones that you like best from your blog – don’t be afraid to include those as well! These are things that you either know you did a fantastic job writing, or like to go back and re-read, or are particularly proud of. They’re the “condensed” version of your blog.
Sometimes your favorite posts and your readers favorite posts will line up – and sometimes they won’t. That’s ok, both you and your readers make up important parts of your blog!
Every Thursday, one of the Annas from Too Many Annas stops by with a mid-week blogger tip. If you have questions or suggestions for future tips, email Anna ( tips at twistednether dot net ) with a message titled “Blog Tipping”.
