Just for fun… here is the statistical overview for my journalist blog’s performance in 2014!
In 2014, there were just over 12,000 views!
(Countries with less than 100 views were not included in breakdown)
Page views by Country
United States 2587
United Kingdom 357
Author's Note: This statistical summary is in regard to musician interviews on my Freelance Journalist Blog!
Thank you so much for this overwhelming support. As I have mentioned in past posts, I have the ‘spam’ features set at a very high level, so the only people who view this blog are by invitation of other fans who have read the interviews. Perhaps this limits my audience, but I would rather have 12,000 views from actual music lovers, than 100,000 views from 'spam' generated search engines.
Also, the tracking feature is set to calculate statistics based on readers who stay engaged a minimum of 5-minutes. Also noteworthy, the monthly trend has been increasing on a steady basis with a minimum of 50 new ‘unique’ readers each month. Again, thank you.
It was fun to see the breakdown of viewers per country. Netherlands and USA were easy to explain since I am an American journalist living in The Netherlands, and for the most part interviewing Dutch bands, and international bands that have a large American fan base. Freedom To Glide would account for the UK; Gazpacho and Blodsmak for Norway; and Kristoffer Gildenlöw for Sweden. My best assumption for France and Germany is that they are large countries in Europe, who probably have a large fan base for the bands mentioned above. It was a real treat to see so many readers from Ukraine, Moldova and Russia; which I have to assume began reading the blog as result of Mich Rozak’s, Folk for the People, an online benefit concert to help victims in Ukraine. Curious what happens with 2015 statistics, since I have finally interviewed a few American bands. Thank you for your support! Keep sharing, as I believe music will heal this crazy messed up world, it is worth a try! Peace! K.
