Previously on TEFL up… I had just started and had a number of posts.
This week has involved me writing a number of posts. I actually have about two weeks of posts written. So the numbers for this week.
Posts: 25 (7 new)
Sessions: 103 (average duration 3:42)
Page views: 318
Bounce rate: 74.76%
Organic search: 3
This week I have had a lot more traffic, although still far from the numbers I need. I have promoted the site more on Facebook, and I am starting to get followers on pinterest. Still not much coming from organic searches, but that will change when I start writing posts which are designed to attract that traffic.
This time most of my viewers have come directly. Perhaps this is from me posting the link and people typing it out. Referral seems to refer to tumblr, whereas social mainly refers to pinterest.
Once again, most of my traffic is returning, which seems positive.
What have I learnt this week?
This is probably going to be a slower process than I thought. Performing SEO on categories and tags is a waste of time.
What will be next for the blog?
Continue posting and pinning on pinterest and improve my search optimisation there. Think about the type of posts that are going to attract serious numbers of viewers to my blog. Also, check the mobile friendliness by testing the site myself – this might be attributing to the high bounce rate.
