Hello again friends! It is time for my monthly traffic report which helps me to locate areas I need to focus on for the upcoming month, as well as what you, my readers are actually reading. August was kind of a crazy month for me! I officially moved to Chattanooga from Nashville, and I have been trying to get used to living back here. I also was spending majority of my time with friends and family who I have not been able to hangout with previously. So, how did I do in August?
Views were pretty relaxed this month. I had a steady stream, which is happily growing from month to month. I did not have as many posts as I have in previous months which I think did hurt me. My top posts were about blogging, so that seems to be something that a few of you may find helpful, and that makes me so happy!
Monthly Views: 1,811 (-383)
Monthly Sessions: 1,157 (-207)
Top Post: How to take blog photos with an iphone
Domain Authority: 21
Page Authority 31
Not posting as often has hurt my views, but I have seen a pretty large amount of traffic to my older posts thanks to social media promotion. Considering that July had my best sessions I have ever seen, I will take coming close to that! I want to work more on my subscriber and email list for the upcoming month. I decided to add in page and domain authority this month. I know that is something I have not been paying attention to in the past, so I want to be sure to focus on that as part of my growth.
I have been talking about my social media stats forever! I was definitely beginning to struggle, and then once I started doing these reports, I could pinpoint problems. I saw growth in every social media that I am involved in! I once again was not as active as I have been in the past, so I did not grow as much as I think is possible.
Twitter: 1,838 (+156)
Facebook: 67 (+30)
Instagram: 939 (+77)
Bloglovin: 587 (+99)
I started to finally use Facebook groups as a way to connect and promote my posts as well as social media accounts. I have seen an absolutely insane growth on my Facebook page, and I feel like a lot of my Instagram growth are also coming from those groups as well. Twitter is my biggest source of traffic, and I am pretty active on there, so I kind of always expect larger growth than the rest of the platforms. I put a lot of that on using buffer to help schedule my tweets even when I am not at my computer.
Since school is back in session it has became a lot harder for me to find motivation and honestly time to get things going. This month I am trying to work as far ahead for blog posts as I can, while also being sure the content is sufficient to my standards. If you have any tips, that would be lovely! Until next time!
