BLOG ANALYTICS??? and SHOUTOUTS...

...I don't know much at all about blog analytics.  Page views per day, returning visitors, and what pray tell are UNIQUE VISITORS?

But  I have been able to decipher a little bit of understanding about Traffic Sources and Referring URL's.  These are places/blogs/websites that direct the greatest number of viewers/lookers to your address on the World Wide Web.  In the case of FayesSewingAdventure.blogspot.com, my top Referring URL's are Diary of a Sewing Fanatic and Stitches & Seams.
 
Like many others my blog was started as a means of journaling my sewing adventures, but what fun would that be without readership AND interaction.  As a bonus, this interaction has created a valuable learning environment for me.  Truthfully, I would not have gotten to my current skill level without:  my Mother's prayers (yes, I struggled when I reentered the sewing arena) and; help from more advanced sewing bloggers like the two mentioned above.



What blogs are your top referring URL's???

  1. Faye - I think Debbie's blog is one of the top referrals for a lot of us. She has an amazing blog roll that a lot of sewists follow! Thanks for the kind words!

  4. Hand's down, Carolyn's Diary of a Sewing Fanatic. Her's was the first sewing blog I stumbled on and I use her blog roll to catch up on what others are doing plus a few bookmarks of my own.

  6. This is very interesting Faye and like you, I don't know much about blog analytics either! However, I just saw that my top referring URL's are Good Bye Valentino and Sunny Gal Studios! It's nice to know that others are actually reading our blogs no matter how many and who, there's something for everyone!

  9. Thanks for the shout-out Faye. I think it's my 3-mile long blog roll. It sometimes makes me a little sad at the bottom when I see all those great bloggers who've gone dormant.

    Also, got your email and I'm working on it. :-)
