It is good to look at the stats from time to time and see how we are going. This month we have had some changes and they are interesting. We are ever grateful to the 142 follows and the visitors which have allowed us to have 4665 hits to our blog so far. There are people who regularly like our posts and comment and it’s good! In June the popular posts were about winter things. Most visitors come from Australia so that is not surprising at this time of year. Margaret’s sheep cushion was a big hit and Karin’s 10 stitch blanket. Our show and tell is always popular.
In July the posts changed quite a bit but the Australian Spinning Wheels post is , and has remained, a very popular post. Again show and tell is popular and the fingerless gloves have been shown to be something people like as well. People like and respond to our posts on colour and use of colour.
We have had a bit of a change in our countries with a lot of visitors from Turkey this month. That has probably come from our Instagram account. We are also picking up visitors form the Ukraine too and that is probably from Instagram too. We are getting more visitors and they are coming from all over the world. This list is not he complete list. Just the top countries.
Our referrers now includes Pinterest as of this month. That’s a big breakthrough and really pleasing. We have also increased referrals from Google Plus. Anyone with gmail will have a Google Plus account and can share posts and ideas on that. Pinterest has sent us more visitors this month than Instagram so that’s really interesting. It is also good to see the search engines are really working for us now.
Search terms which bring us here are a bit of an odd list but then there are things you’d hope for and expect. All those numbers and letters got someone to our blog? Oh, okay. The fact normal things have got people here is a relief after that. There are a lot of search terms WordPress can’t identify. That is not unusual.
Twitter hasn’t changed much but we are doing okay and holding our own. We are getting plenty of retweets of our things and that is a change now. People like what we do. Twitter has a hard time with sheep and woolly wonders.
Instagram is going really well. Our images are popular, we get comments and engagement and we are liked and respected. Our followers keep coming. The fingerless gloves have been really popular and our things with detail, colour and style. We put up a little video of Sheila’s counting beads for rows and stitches. It got 83 hits. That was an experiment done right! Our followers just like what we do and that’s good.
So it’s been an informative couple of months and all is going well.
