My ActiveRain Statistics are Speaking to Me, and They're Saying...

ActiveRain StatisticsWhen I had a few minutes to spare yesterday, I took advantage of the opportunity to check my ActiveRain statistics.  To check yours, just click on "Statistics" in the bottom section of the left navigation bar on your Home page, as shown on the right.

Of my 435 posts to date, about 300 have been written since last September, and I thought it would be interesting to take a quick informal survey to determine which posts were most popular with readers over the past year.  If nothing else, this information might suggest a focus for my next year on ActiveRain.

Without a doubt, How to Blog for Leads on ActiveRain had the most comments (140), views (5083) and clicks (3626).  Another ActiveRain-themed post fared very well, too - The Second Commandment of Blogging (Learned the Hard Way), with lots of comments (116), views (4171) and clicks (3129).  Both of these posts were quite popular and generated many comments even before they were featured, but that gold star certainly contributed to the high numbers.

Beyond those, however, most of the posts which generated a lot of views and clicks were LOCALISM posts:

Do you find that as surprising as I do?   All of these LOCALISM posts combine for a total of only 75 comments, yet they each had at least 1500 clicks - more than most of my other ActiveRain posts.  Food for thought, isn't it?

If that doesn't validate the concept of posts on local content, I don't know what does!   Several buyers have said they read my blogs, and now my statistics are saying that, too.  I'm gonna have to check those statistics more often!
