Yesterday was a good day for Homepreneurs. I met with Lindsay Coats – StellarEdgePr – to discuss some changes to this blog. Expect to see more user-friendly navigation and some new features. A new theme is possible too – Lindsay is busy working on this project as I type! Yesterday also was a better than average day for visits to this blog: 313 views from 200 + visitors.
I always want to know the source of my visits, how they get here, and the search terms used. This helps me develop better content in the future and use appropriate social media resources: Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Twitter.
WordPress provides some useful statistics and I want to share them with you. As a blogger or home business owner, you must pay attention to your market niche and meta data. Google analytics and WordPress statistics are designed for this purpose. Below are some screen captures that show what I see in my WordPress dashboard:
The top image shows the search terms used in Google and other search engines to find Homepreneurs. The center clip is how visitors got to Homepreneurs. Clearly, Pinterest won yesterday. Finally, the bottom image shows which posts were viewed the most. All this information or meta data (data about data) is incredibly useful for me and any one that blogs, runs a website or a business.
Analyzing this data, I determine that the majority of visits – at least yesterday – were interested in Work From Home Jobs and used Pinterest to find Homepreneurs. This also supports the marketing idea that pictures make a big difference in a blog. Pinterest is all about pictures and images – I suggest you explore and use Pinterest for your products.
The tools for creating a successful blog or website or business are available. Know where to look, put the pieces together, and of course, check back with Homepreneurs for more tips!
