How to analyze your blog data for successful blogging

Hi everyone,
I know, many of you were waiting for my post about blog data analyzing tools, that I promised you to post, and today that's what I'm going to do.

  You may already know that I actually started blogging 5 months ago (I don't count few posts previous year because they were not even post,  LoL), and at the beginning, I had no idea about blogging tips, only thing I knew, was how to do  and publish post, I was not active on social media at all, and of course, I had no blogging community. 
 But 2-3 months later, when I gained some experience, I started get more information about successful blogging, from books, websites, friends. One of the things I learned was that I not only had to post but also figure out what my lovely readers liked, what kind of blogposts were popular among my visitors.
 For that, I needed some web traffic analysis tools, but most of them I had to pay every single month.
(Alexa.com , for instance).
 After some research, I found StatCounter that is a web traffic analysis tool. Access to basic services is free, for more detailed analyses, you have to pay $9 up to $115 per month. 
 I , personally, use their free version and it's enough for me, because I don't have 100 000 page views a month.


 If you are interested in web traffic analyses, you can sigh up on Statcounter.com , (basically you need you email address and password, to sign up,) and then get the code, to put on your blog. 
 After that, you will get access to the details like : how many unique / first time/ returning visitors your blog has, where they come from, how long they stay on your blog, what path they take through your blog, their county/province/city and so much more.

 The best thing about this tool is that not only it's easy to use, when you go to their site to check out your blog traffic, but also, they send you weekly report of your blog traffic data, at the end of each week. So you can compare,  which of your page had more visitors and so on.. 
 At the end, I just want to tell you, that having the access to all these details doesn't mean that you have to focus on solely analyzing. It can definitely help you to go to right direction in you blogging, but don't forget that your main job still, is to do interesting and attracting posts, for your readers. 
I hope, this post will help you, guys, to improve your blogging skills.

  1. Hi Nina! I think it is very important to keep track of your blog stats. I use Jetpack and Google Analytics for my blog, and Iconosquare for my instagram ^_^

  13. I will use this website for sure! I tried Google Analytics but it was too confusing. Wordpress does a pretty good job of letting me see details but this site sounds great! Thanks for the tip!

  23. Great tips!!! It's super important to track everything you mentioned. Google analytics is definitely an essential tool as many PR companies will ask for screen shots of your analytics. Also, if you are on wordpress jetpack has great SEO info and tracking tools!

  51. that was what I am using before when I started blogging. Now I rely on the "statistics" of blogger that you can see on the dashboard and I added Google Analytics to see all the statistics of my blog. :)
