Trying the post-to-Blogger function that I’ve apparently set up on my blog…
I am quite enjoying this new Stats button that has recently appeared, or I only recently spotted, in the Blogger dashboard. After being amazed at how many more people than I would possibly imagine were interested in the ScicommJobs Posterous (in that I’d not expect more than a couple of hundred people to click on any one job advert but some of them have amassed almost 2,000 hits) I decided, in May this year, to add Google Analytics to my blog. It delights me to find that occasionally my blog gets read – it doesn’t surprise me at all that the most popular page is the Science Communication Jobs Vacancies pages.
Anyway here are a couple of snapshots from my Blogger stats (not the Google Analytics, which seem to give a separate set of information although I’m not sure how that works).
The first one shows the number of page views in a month but includes every single page view – ie if someone is on your site and returns to the page etc. It seems no-one looked at my blog very much in May though, or the system wasn’t working too well ;-)
The second one shows the times of day when people do or don’t visit the blog
If your blog has vastly more hits than mine I hope you won’t laugh too much, and if yours has less than mine I hope you don’t think I’m showing off – I just thought it was interesting. Since this blog is more of a personal and somewhat random diary of occasional sensible things mixed with blethers I’m delighted that anyone looks at all :-)
The y axis at the top goes up to 4,000 and the second one to 60.
