I've been blogging seriously at You Think Too Much since about November of last year. I've noticed that one post in particular on my blog keeps getting a lot of traffic and I have no idea why. It's not a new post (it's from February), and no one's commenting on it, but when I look at "Stats" in blogger, it clearly keeps getting visited. The post is a book review of Room, so maybe it's that book?
I did some research and it doesn't look like blogger has a feature that lets you do trackback yet, though I'm sure this might be possible. Is there any other way to figure out what it is about that post that's getting so many hits?
Thanks for the help,
I have a few posts like that, one was a happy birthday post for a fellow blogger. :D
If you are dying to know, I'd suggest putting a poll on your site, asking or even a post, with a link back to the original post, asking for feedback. Do you know if the book's author has a link to the review on their site? That will drive up traffic.
If you are on Google Blogger, there is a way to backtrack but I don't know how to do it.
Add sitemeter to your blog.
It's free and easy to use and will tell you who's linking to you and what searches they're using to find you.
Hi Robyn! Do you use Google Analytics? That's how I track all blog traffic. You can isolate certain days and search by post. Plus, it allows you to see how people found it- like referring sites. Maybe you stumbled upon a post title that is SEO magic! (that's Search Engine Optimization if you didn't know).
I hope this helps! Google Analytics is a free service, and I would think with Blogger it'd be pretty easy to set up! Feel free to message me with any questions! :)
