Your Year in Review

Annual reportDay 25: #AtoZChallenge

WordPress does a phenomenal job keeping up with our blog stats. At the end of the year, they send you an annual report: Your Year in Review.

The report includes:

  1. Posting Patterns – including your longest blogging streak and your Best Day.
  2. Posts that received the most views.
  3. Top Referring sites.
  4. The total number and name of the countries visiting.
  5. The post receiving the most comments and who commented.

To improve your outreach, it’s important to review your stats on a regular basis.

Things you can discover to improve your blog’s performance:

  1. Who’s following and how long.
  2. Where referrals are generated.
  3. The most active keywords.
  4. Who’s leaving comments?
  5. The number of clicks.
  6. The number of visitors.
  7. The most popular day and time to post.
  8. The most popular posts and pages.
