Following on from our post about traffic to this blog in 2009 from search engines, here’s some stats on our content.
I wrote about 150 posts or so and I did take about a month off blogging at one point. A post every couple of days or so it works out. About 65,000 visitors a month visit the site at the moment and about 30,000 read it via feedreader.
Pages on Hobo were viewed a total of 1,044,114 times in 2009 with 877,466 unique views. On average people stay on the site for about 2 and a half minutes.
- The most popular page on the Hobo site (created in 2009) was our quick start guide to Google seo we published in April (which Matt Cutts of Google voted for at Sphinn which was cool) – according to GA 30,177 people viewed it. (10 Dec 2008 – 10 Dec 2009)
- Our second most popular page was our free beginners guide to SEO Ebook.
- Third most popular post was our linkbuilding for beginners post (which we followed up with another free ebook)
- Fourth most visited page in 2009 was our post sharing which wordpress plugins we use on the Hobo site
- Our guide to Google Local Business Center mash-up proved popular at the end of the year too.
Creating how-to-guides is a good tip for any blog if your new to blogging.
Older content still proved popular of course, including one page which has accounted for @90,000 visits every year for a while. A lot of the things I write about there are always folks looking for information on for instance keyword density and keyword research.
These stats don’t include feed reader views (305,486 views since we started properly sometime in 2007)
