I tend not to pay huge attention to site stats with blogs, other than to the metrics that matter to me most. These tend to be RSS based (bloglines subs, etc) and the amount of visible activity i see when using the site – ie. active discussions.
I was looking through some of these things this afternoon and thought i’d share a few interesting ones with you. We’ve been live for 2wks and 1day, and for that kind of timeframe, i think we’re doing pretty good…
We use FeedBurner for feed stats, we even go to interview FB CEO Dick Costolo recently and love the service! Here’s a few stats from FeedBurner:
823 is the exact count today – yeah!
No big surprises there, bloglines pulling a respectable 35%
Member / Contributor Stats
There’s a very neat Hall of Fame Module for Drupal based blogs, and you can see how our members and contributors stack up here.
Remember, when viewing those top figures on that page that we’ve been live for 2wks, but were working in stealth on this project for some time before that 🙂
We’ve had some marvellous story submissions here at Performancing since we started, and I’d personally like to encourage anyone with something worthy of the professional blogging communities attention to go right ahead and submit a story. All the details are in the link above.
Also, a big thankyou! to our existing contributors and site editors — I think they’re doing a smashing job of keeping us all interested, and sharing their expertise.
Nice work everyone!
