July Blog Traffic Report (2019)
Hey there! It’s already August! Is the year flying by for you? Because it is for me. This is the fastest I’ve ever felt a year fly by! Anyway, a new month means it’s time for another blog traffic report! July was pretty good for me, so let’s get into it!
Every month I share my traffic stats to show what my numbers are, how I use social media to drive traffic to my blog and to share that it’s okay to have lower numbers. Many traffic reports show these big numbers and make newer bloggers feel disappointed about their numbers. Remember, it’s not always about the numbers. You can have lower numbers but a tight-knit community. Stop comparing, and do you!
So, let’s get into this month’s numbers! This month was pretty awesome for traffic. One of my college pins took off towards the end of July and it has been going strong through the end of the month. I also tried to make sure my Tailwind queue never hit empty, so I definitely think that helped as well!
This month I had 4,482 users and 4,772 sessions that resulted in 5,583 pageviews. Pinterest was, again, my main traffic referrer. I’ve been working hard on trying to have Pinterest bring me consistent traffic, and this month it has paid off. Pinterest is the best free way to grow your blog traffic and is what my main traffic growing strategy uses.

For Twitter, I ended July with 26,700 impressions and 1,251 followers. That’s a decrease of 8 followers from the month prior. I definitely think I’m going to rethink, or redo, my auto-posting through Google Calendar and IFTTT. Besides the auto-posting, I’m really focusing on just connecting with my followers and other blogger friends. I definitely believe Twitter could be used to get to show your more personal side, as well as promote your blog posts, so I’ve just been focusing on the connections.

I ended the month with 250,336 impressions and 203,117 viewers total for the whole month. I also ended the month with 2,618 followers, which was an increase of 125 followers from last month! I’ve been following the strategies in Ell’s Pinterest course regarding Tailwind and it has definitely helped with this month. Right at the end of the month, I increased the number of pins Tailwind pins for me from 25 to 30. I know it’s not a lot, Ell suggests pinning 80-100, but I’m slowly increasing it.
I also ended the month with an average of 188,744 monthly viewers and 8,460 average monthly engaged users. This is an increase from last month.
This month I got 391,409 impressions and 331,583 viewers for just my website’s pins. That means that my pins get 12,626 average daily impressions and 10,696 average daily viewers. This is a huge increase from last month. Like I mentioned before, one of my college pins went viral and brought in a lot of traffic this month. I’ve been working on pin descriptions and making sure they have relevant keywords in them. I’ve also added relevant hashtags, only a couple so that they could be seen. I’ve been trying to get my other pins to start bringing me consistent traffic as well, not just this one pin that has gone viral.
