Analytics and a Posting Schedule

analytics, posting schedule, #bloggingbranding

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 posts with the greatest amount of likes are Finding Inspiration from Other Bloggers and What Is My Audience? with 10 total likes. A few posts received 9 likes, included That Darn Cat.

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:

  1. The United States
  2. The United Kingdom
  3. Canada
  4. Poland
  5. India

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.)

  1. Thanks for sharing. I didn’t think of bothering about analytics but since Danny of (Dream big Dream often) vlogged about “Writing vs. Blogging”, my eyes were opened wide and I became more insightful about what it is I need to do if my goal is to have a successful and long running blog.
