Hey there! Today I wanted to share my October 2018 Blog Traffic Report. I did pretty well with consistent posting this month, which I am proud of. My traffic was pretty good this month, it kind of plateaued this month, compared to the last couple of months. I’m hoping traffic will pick back up in November, due to holiday posts coming out.
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 I had 1,727 users and 1,839 sessions that resulted in 2,312 pageviews. This month was better than last month, but still not where I wanted to be. By the middle of the month my traffic kind of stagnated.
For Twitter, I ended the month with 23,500 impressions and 1,009 followers, which is awesome! I finally cracked 1k followers on Twitter and I’m so excited about it! My goal for November is to hit 2k followers on Twitter, I know, bold!
I still am using Google Calendar and IFTTT to schedule my tweets for me, but I tried to be more active myself on Twitter. I participated in a Twitter chat which helped me remember that blogging is a community and we all grow with help from each other.
I ended the month with 43,488 impressions and 34,595 viewers total for the whole month. That rounds out to an average of 1,403 impressions and an average of 1,116 daily viewers for all of my pins. I also ended the month with 1,790 followers, which was an increase of 54 followers from last month, which is a bit lower than last month.
I also ended the month with an average of 105,928 monthly viewers and 4,780 average monthly engaged users. That is a decrease from last month.
This is from me manually pinning my pins when I could and then Pinterest just doing the rest. Now, I have to admit, there were some days that I didn’t pin at all, but I’m trying to be better about it.
This month I got 94,213 impressions and 86,626 viewers. That means that my pins get 3,039 average daily impressions and 2,788 average daily viewers. This is also on par with last month, actually a little bit of an increase!
I am going to skip an Etsy update this month. I haven’t really been keeping up with the shop. I’ve been getting item favorites, but I didn’t get any sales this month. I think I’m going to just let all of the active listings run out and then just let it sit empty until I figure out if I want to keep it up.
I hope you enjoyed this month’s traffic report! Do you have a traffic post you want to share? Let me know in the comments!
