Now I wont pretend I take much notice or for that fact understand much of these, but I do like to see the stat for followers as this tells me I am engaging with a wider audience. But the most Important one aside from that is the comment count, after all engagement with the audience is one of the objectives of my blog.
In more detail:
So this last month things have become very erratic with some really high spikes for no apparent reason at all. As you can see pre spike average hits were 350 per day.
This week things have returned to some form of normality.
This is the one I do check regularly and that is to satisfy my curiosity that people really do want to visit the blog and my readership is growing.
The Other stats:
I like to see were my audience is in the world. What I like from this is that my readers are spread far and wide.
So having said all the above, are all the facts and figures really so important that anyone should be driven by these things. After all the recent spike was down to something completely unexplained and saw my daily visits increase to peak at 907 in one day with 315 in one particular hour, add Vampire stats into the mix and do we really get anything like a true page view count ever. Regardless of this page views are page views and, I like many often celebrate and run a give away based on this figure. (In my case because it serves as a handy reference point to celebrate).
My favourite stats are the follower count for both Blogger and Google + as I want to engage with a wide audience, and combined with the comments statistic I can see if my blog is doing the job and I am engaged with my readership.
Just to keep it real here are some better stats worth a look:
