A couple of weeks ago I went to a job interview which required me to know a bit of web analytics, so I decided to test Google Analytics and see what the fuzz is about (or was, since it's no longer a new tool and I am not sure if there's something better out there). So.. I opened a Google Analytics account, copied a piece of tracking code to my blog.. and believe it or not, people actually visit my blog!
Well, it's definitely not the most visited page on the web (10 visits per day during the last week, and 90% of the visitors never click on a link), but... its much more visited than I thought :)
Thanks to Google Analytics I know, for instance, that 38% of my visitors come from the US (see map below), and that British are more likely to keep reading it, rather than jumping to another webpage.
This is, truth be told, amazing news. I haven't written here anything at all for almost a year, and yet people still visit it.. now imagine: what if I actually wrote something? Can I improve traffic? An interesting experiment...
