Today, I took a look at my analytics in order to have a gauge of where I had the most success on this blog. Based on what I found, I made a posting schedule for the next 30 days.
Here Is What I Found
I found out quite a bit, but not everything is useful to help me determine what types of posts I need to write to appeal to my current audience and expand from there.
Without sharing all the boring charts, I can come up with these quick stats that might be a factor:
My most view post was Sexism in Naruto: From Kishimoto’s Lips, with over 780 views. Overall, the Sexism in Naruto series was pretty successful in terms of views, especially because this remains a hot topic in the Naruto fandom. By the way, I received 4 referrals for two posts in the series.
The post with the most comments was What’s My Feature? I’m Thinking, Boo…I’m Thinking… This is another post tied to a Blogging U course and when I started taking these courses, my blog first received the greatest increase in views.
The page with the most referrals was entitled, Famous Sayings: #30 — ‘Once in a Blue Moon’
(Note: These were supplemented by looking at my posts, instead of my stats pages)
On the whole, people loved to consume posts that asked them questions are talked about hot-topic issues in a popular manga series. Some of my readers also love when I take a look at my blog and talk about what I find.
This Is Interesting to Note
Since I started this blog, the top countries for views are:
- The United States
- The United Kingdom
This Is My 30-Day Posting Schedule
Taking everything into account, I can come up with a posting schedule for the next 30 days. This will of course include my featured posts, which a number of people love to read. (Thank you.)
