I am a statistics junkie, I use the statistics to know how to draw in more people to read the blog. It's an extremely powerful tool if you know how to use it.
However, lately I have been stumped over how we get so many views on certain posts.
I check the referral list and all I see are search engines. Like today, we got 166 referrals from Google alone. Along with that, we got 34 views on a certain post, that only got 2 views yesterday, so I thought I'd see why. No referrer alone have anywhere near 34 clicks, so I thought I'd check the search term list.
Today we got a total of 24 search terms, including the "private" ones where we can't see what they searched for.
This does not add up in the least. If the only referrals we have are search engines and todays views tops the total views on that post before, it can't be that people have typed in the URL for that specific post, yet the number of search terms (where only about half is relevant to that post, but can be relevant to 2 other posts too) is so much less than the number of search engine referrals.
Is there a way to get more specific information, because I really wanna know where we get the views from and how they got there.
The blog I need help with is thetorchslguide.com.
