Blogger Appreciation- March 2011


Where does your site traffic come from? Do you know? What program(s) do you use to track your statistics?

I use Google Analytics, which is free. I can see each day how many pageviews I’ve had, where my traffic has comes from, how long readers are staying on my site, the keywords that are sending them to my site, etc.   I can run a report that shows me which sites in cyberville refer readers to Crystal & Co.  

During the month of March we had over 18,200 pageviews. People are reading this stuff that I write… for real!

Without further ado…
