Analytics: Getting To Know Each Other

Let's put more color on this map, aright?

The third entry is always special, rule of three. It’s time to get to know each other… There is built-in stats in Blogger and there is also Google Analytics, this blog uses both. So now, its time to say some very specific thanks for the visits:
Pour les Haitiens et les Suisses (Françaises), merci beacoup ! To the US, thank you! Sa mga kabayan, salamat po! Brasiliero, obrigado! Nach Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz, danken! To the visitors in Hungary, Singapore and Indonesia thank you! (sorry don’t know how to say it in your native tongue.)

So now, here’s some pieces of wisdom about stats and analytics from a prehistoric T-rex behind this blog be sure to listen!

  1. If you’re using Analytics, be sure to filter out the IP Addresses of your computer, laptop and captive audiences such as officemates, bestfriend, girlfriend and those that will visit your site on your demand. This skews your numbers and doesn’t give you a true picture of what’s happening to your site. The saying "a traffic is a traffic," is complete BS. 
  2. Get Google Analytics. It’s a lot better than Blogger Stats. You have more specialized tools.
  3. If you’re planning to SEO your blog and get an idea for keywords, Analytics will definitely help you.
  4. If you want to get more intimate with your readers, pay close attention to how they use your site and which pages they read and go to.
  5. And finally, use analytics information wisely. Here are some examples:
    • Develop content that are relevant to your readers.
    • Thank them in their own language. This is fun. Haha! ;-)

So there you have it. Third entry and we already have tips&tricks!  Wow. Till next time!
