Keeping Track Of Your Blog's Stats

Since I've started participating in several Reddit subforms, many people have asked me questions about blogging and reviewing. Such as: How to start a blog? How do you get free books and movies to review? While my anxiety does kick in a bit every time someone asks me a question like this, part of me enjoys it for some odd reason. Maybe, I just like the idea of helping out a future blogger. All of us bloggers need to stick together!

Since I've been in a giving mood, I came up with of idea of this post, which is called "Keeping Track Of Your Blogs Stats."

When I first started out blogging, I had no idea what I was doing. I began this blog on Wordpress briefly, but I had problems with the formatting and I didn't like idea that I couldn't use specific widgets, which I'm referring to one from the now defunct Shelfari website. After a few months, I migrated my blog over to Blogger and I have never regretted it.

Now many new newbie bloggers probably don't care about your blog stats, but keeping track of who reads your posts is very important.


Almost every blogging platform has some has a "stats" section where you can keep track of your blog's demographics.

Why is this important?

Well, it's because you need to know what kinds of posts, reviews, and/or giveaways to publish on your blog. By tracking your readers'/viewers' sex and age, you can determine what's the best future content for your blog. The same things goes to tracking your readers' location. For example, if your biggest audience is from the UK, then you probably publish posts that will appeal to them.

While I'm located in the United States, I get most more visitors/readers from France and the UK. I don't know exactly why, but it probably has to do with the fact that I post many reviews on foreign moves and television series, such as Doctor Who.


At the end of every month, you should check your monthly pageviews to see what's your most popular posts for the month. If your top posts are reviews on mystery novels, then you should review more mystery titles. You can also check your blog's month "search key" which will help you determine what the most searched word or words on Google (or other search engines) were used that brought the readers to your blog. 

Domain Authority

Keep an eye on your blog's DA (or Domain Authority) score. What is a DA? A DA is a search engine ranking score, the higher the number, the more value your website or blog is worth. It ranges from 1 to 100. It's basically a way to determine the strength of your blog.

Why is this important?

Well, it's important to companies and clients, as it gives a value of your blog. The bigger the number, the more likely the company or client will want to work with you.

Like I've already mentioned, most blog platforms have their own stats section, but there are websites, widgets, and master date management companies, as well as softwares you can purchase, that can track everything. If your blog/website has turned into a business with several employees (writers), then you need to make sure to track your microsoft mdm.
