The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

ActiveRain Statistics and Blog Traffic

The Statistics link on ActiveRain shows how many comments, views, and clicks your blog posts have received over time.  I was actually shocked to see that one of my posts here on ActiveRain had been viewed over 103,000 times yet only had 18 comments. WOW! Now that's some great traffic and exposure rainers.  It wasn't even a post I felt deserved to get that many views...

Digging further into the AR stats investigation, I noticed many posts had 10,000 views or more. Would this information be useful to share with other readers and subscribers?  How would you even know or find them since the stats info is private?  How can you use and share your stats most viewed posts on ActiveRain?  This is just one way to share your "TOP BLOGS" with others.

10 TOP things I learned by doing this exercise

  1. Out of 583 posts I've written here, these are the "TOP WINNERS" based on "Over 10K Views"
  2. It's interesting and re-assuring to see how your writing skills will change and develop over time
  3. Comments aren't the most important thing on your AR Blog, but views and clicks are significant
  4. Over time, your posts are still being viewed thanks to ActiveRain SEO and Google searches
  5. By running through your AR Statistics link, you can provide a single post with your best content
  6. Copying and Pasting your ActiveRain Statistics into an Excel file lets you do some amazing fact finding
  7. This exercise will help you determine what content works best for views and clicks year over year
  8. Adding "How To" into your Blog post title can increase your views and clicks dramatically (lol)
  9. CAUTION: You'll get excited to see how much traffic. views, and clicks your AR Blog actually gets
  10. The important thing I learned is Blogging on ActiveRain generates SEO, traffic, views, and business!

The information below is to try and provide you with some ideas and ways on how to populate your best content into a single location. This could be done using a blog post, an RSS feed, or a table with links on your sidebar or website.  The first step in knowing which content and posts you wish to share is knowing what articles are getting the most attention and drawing the most traffic.  It was very useful to see which ones sparked the most interest, views, and clicks. Here are my TOP 10K most viewed posts on ActiveRain.

WARNING: You may be surprised at your results when you run your own ActiveRain Statistics.
