I’ll Show You Mine…Londonelicious in 2007

by Krista

TrafficI spend a lot of time with data. And thinking about Google. And I like Matt Cutts. I like Matt Cutts even more because he just puts his traffic out there. (Matt is Google’s official unofficial corporate blogger.)

So I was sorta inspired to do the same. So here you go…according to SiteMeter.com, here’s what Londonelicious looked like in 2007. The bummer part is that I use the free version of SiteMeter, which only keeps 12 months of history, so I can’t tell you what 2006 looked like. Or 2005. Or 2004. But I did just add Google Analytics over the summer, and that will keep all the history forever (and for free) so I won’t have this problem in the future. 

In general, my Traffic Sources Overview** looks just like Matt’s, which I find interesting…but then again, I am a dork.

Ardeu a padaria (in Portugese) I helped João with some restaurant recs a while back. He must be huge in Portugal.
Well Fed Network I had a HUGE influx of traffic in December when I was nominated for Best Food-Oriented City Blog.

An American in London. A fellow American. In London. Who enjoys dining out. How funny!
Food & Drink in London. Howard and Ben. (They’re not a couple, btw.  But man, do they know food.)
What do you think? Think I can do 7000 visitors a month by December 2008? I think I can.
**So this data is from Google Analytics, not SiteMeter. I only implemented GA on July 9, 2007. But I still think it’s largely representative and accurate.

That’s solid growth. Pretty soon you’ll be able to make some big money on ads. You thinking about doing AdSense on this site?

You will like Google Analytics a lot more once you get used to it! I like seeing where my visitors come from and where they go once they leave my site. It is interesting to see.

Hi Krista. I hardly ever see anyone admit to their stats. You’ve made me feel good now because I’m about 10% ahead of you in the figures and also showing about the same rise month on month. I think some sites get relatively few visitors and some get a lot more than both of us put together. I think it’s a lot to do with making the effort to read other blogs and make comments. Like this one. Lol!
