Blogger Stats

Has anyone been looking at their blogger stats now that they changed the look? I am finding it very humorous and interesting.

The number one post that trends every single day is the one called Rain Conspiracy. This was a silly little post about a conspiracy theory that we wouldn't get any rain ever and if I said that we wouldn't someday it would rain. It gets at least 30-40 hits a day. Mostly people searching for the word rain or a photo of kids playing in the rain. I'm sure they are disappointed when they get to the blog because it probably isn't what they are looking for.

The next one is my thoughts on Fear of Dentists. This is the story of my problems when I was a child and how I've over come them to be able to get my teeth cleaned twice a year without laughing gas. Once again, I doubt its what people are looking for when they search for dentist.

Obviously the United States is the most popular country people visit from. But you would be surprised to find that Russia is number 2. Maybe they are searching for conspiracies? (see above paragraph)

Another interesting trend is that more and more people seem to be switching to either Firefox or Chrome for their browsers. Guess people are finally realizing that Internet Explorer has too many problems.

Labeling in your blog makes google pick up those words for people to search. That's why I keep getting most of my hits from the google search engine. So the lesson to all bloggers is if you want to have people visit, make sure and label your posts.


  1. I love looking at mine every now and then just to see what search words brought people in or what post is most popular. My most popular seems to be pretty consistent...it had a picture of Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory) in a ball pit yelling, Bazinga! I've had hits from all over the world and for a month or so right after I posted it my daily hits were through the roof!

  2. I need to look at mine. Thanks for the tip.

  3. I'm ashamed to say that even though I've been blogging since 2005, I do not know how to label my posts.....now even though I think two of them are labeled it had to be an accident!

  4. Gabon, that is the place where a handful of people visit my blog from. Where ever in the world is Gabon?

    And the number one searched term to get to my blog right now is "big poop stories". Niiicccceeee!

  5. Thanks for stopping by today. I guess the reason my move in my Junior year was not a big deal is that we moved 7 times during my 12 years of school. It was a way of life for me.

    Happy Wednesday!
