Long time subscribers may remember a post from a while back; Six Months of Blog.SpoonGraphics. I thought it would be fitting one year from the start of the blog to present a few more stats and snippets of information, plus, ask you the readers what you would like to see on the site in the future!
I’m still really impressed over how the site has grown over the past year, it’s helped tremendously in my personal learning curve of online marketing, social media and general website optimisation and upkeep.
Average stats of late:
Average visits per day: 6000
Highest Peak: 10,094 (March 27th)
Top Content: How to Combine Pixel and Vector to Produce Striking Artwork and Free Punk Vector Graphics
RSS Subscribers: 3000
With regards to traffic sources the main source of vistors has been StumbleUpon, with Good-Tutorials also bringing in plenty of traffic to my tutorials. I also had the pleasure of making the Delicious popular pages in March but strangely enough I’ve never had any success with Digg!
Other Blog related achievements:
As well as being a great source of education for myself, the SpoonGraphics blog has also led to a couple of unexpected achievements:
Featured in Web Designer Magazine – Issue 157
Double page cover of Blog.SpoonGraphics in the Dreamweaver section, “diagnosing the tricks behind the dot com designs” with an overview of the key design features of the site.
Ranked Number One in my Home County
After being kindly informed by email of a high ranking in the Alexa stats for my home county I recently checked back to find I had subsequently made it to first place spot.
What’s next – you decide
Now would be the pefect opportunity to discover what the readers of the blog would like to see in the future in the form of articles, tutorials and freebies. I’ve been struggling to come up with new content recently so this will really help out!
Post your thoughts in the comments and I’ll have a go at implementing a post around your topic!
