2014 Blog Traffic Report

2014 Blog Traffic Report

2014 was an amazing year for The Bewitchin’ Kitchen. I saw a lot of growth and from what I can tell; 2015 is going to be even better.

I wanted to put together a little traffic report for myself and share it with whoever may be interested. I’m a huge stat nerd, I like to see where I’m improving and where I can improve. If you’re a blogger, you can link up your year end traffic report as well (link up is at the bottom of this post).

I don’t know about you, but I like checking out traffic reports. It’s fun to see what posts are doing well and where traffic is coming from (yes, I seriously think it’s fun). I actually have a book with a section devoted to my blog stats.

Something I have found helpful in tracking my stats was this post on How To Create a Media Kit Dashboard in Google Analytics.

  1. Holy Cannoli, girlfriend you are ON FIRE!!! Congrats on the great numbers. I know 2015 will be better for you because you just keep getting better and better. {hugs}

  2. I’ve been blogging for less than a year, but I do monthly growth reports because I’m also a nerd. Thank you for sharing yours!

  3. Congratulations on your blog’s success. Happy New Year!

  4. This is my first time visiting your site, found you thru G+! I was absolutely bewildered by your logo, I kept scrolling up and down to see if the shine was on my screen or in your logo! LOL 🙂 I have not been brave enough to create a traffic report, but I did just publish my top 10 posts from last year with a few surprising finds from my analytics. It’s fun to see all the “nerdy” things you can discover!

    • Haha! Yes I wanted a gold foil look, so I created one two months ago! I like it.

      I enjoyed your re cap! Your Asian Slaw sounds yummy.

    • I wanted a gold foil logo, so I finally just made one up. I like it.

      I checked out your blog and your Asian Slaw sounds delicious, no wonder it’s #1.

  5. Whoa! Congrats on your numbers, Randa! No, I hadn’t even thought about doing up a report. Great idea though! If I get time I may just do that. Always love seeing what top posts were…and how someone found my blog (what they googled).

  6. Congratulations on your reports, that is truly amazing. It will be an even more amazing year for you. I should probably do this as my stats go up but right now my numbers are low and I am currently working on bringing those up. Thanks for being an inspiration on becoming a nerd!! 🙂

  7. wow good job hon! You are rocking this!

  8. Congrats on the numbers! I’ve been blogging for almost 2 years now… Wow, time sure flies. My numbers are no where near yours, I check Google Analytics kind of religiously but I’ve never made a traffic report to see how one month compares from another but I’m starting to think I should.

  9. WOW! Congratulations on such fantastic success in 2014!! I have never done a blog traffic report. Sounds like a great tool to use to measure your growth. I am barely 2 years into blogging so not much to report on. This may be a good thing to do moving forward.
    I can’t wait to see your 2015 numbers!! Good job hun!

  10. WTG Randa, that improvement is awesome!! I do monthly reports as well as annual ones (all three years of them, lol,) ’cause I’m a stats fan. Its really interesting to see where everyone comes from to visit our sites (though its frustrating how Google won’t tell us what keywords were used to visit our sites anymore, that info was SO useful!) Anyway, wishing you an even better year for 2015 hun! <3

  11. Wow, good for you! I like looking at stats too though I haven’t published mine. Maybe next year! 🙂 Thanks for sharing… it is cool to see what readers are interested in. 🙂

  12. Wow, a 235.63% increase in pageviews is amazing!!
