Every since I started blogging I have been obsessive with checking my traffic report for my blog every single day. The reason why I always check my blog statistic is to make sure that I am not losing out on my traffic or see where I can improve in getting more traffic. If I am getting traffic and it is rising, then all I have to do is keep on doing what I am doing to keep my traffic flowing.
I know you might be saying that checking on your traffic report everyday is too much, but I have my reasons.
Question: If you don’t check your blog stats regularly, how will you know that your blog is doing great or not?
In this post I will give you 4 reasons on why you should check your blog statistic.
Why Check Your Blog Stats
I always check the list of countries that most of my traffic comes from so that I can launch out to other countries to make my blog more popular in a new country. Targeting people from other countries can be a challenging task but it will be worth it in the long run.
To get people from other country to your site, you can purchase ads and target the county that you wish to see your ads.
This is a really important point, know where your traffic is coming from. I like to make comment on other blogs that I come across if the article is good enough or helpful to me. After leaving a comment, there would be a link that I would also leave leading back to my blog. Visitors of that blog would click on my link and visit my blog as well and I would gain some traffic by blog commenting.
If I check my report and notice, for example, that most of my traffic comes from http://blog.web6.org/ then no doubt I would be making more comment on that blog in order to get more traffic.
So it is very important to know where your traffic is coming from.
Now that you know where your traffic is coming from, it’s time to know where they are going. If you are an affiliate marketer, you would like it if your visitors were clicking on your affiliate links and hope this will initially lead off into them making a purchase.
But how can you make sure that they purchase from your affiliate links? Does this mean you are going to full your blog with affiliate links?
You have to first know what they want in order for them to purchase from your affiliate links. After knowing what they want then you can direct them to your affiliate links which will lead off into a purchase.
As I said in the beginning of this article, you have to check on your traffic report to know whether you are losing traffic or getting traffic.
If you are losing traffic then you need to make some adjustments to patch up that traffic leak. If you are gaining traffic to your blog then continue to do what you have been doing to get that traffic so that you don’t lose it.
If your blog starts losing major traffic its hard to get it back and even harder to keep it.
