I installed Google Analytics on Art News Blog a couple of days ago. It’s a free website statistics program that gives you very detailed information on where your visitors are coming from, how they are finding you, what pages they’re looking at, and a bunch of other stuff that is probably very useful.
I only have the data from less than one day, but it’s still very interesting. For example, Art News Blog is a blog about art, so which keywords below do you think sends more traffic?
- Art News
- Art Competitions
- Andy Warhol Perfume
- Art Blogs
- Britney Spears Naked
- Hirst Diamond Skull
- Old Sex
- British Artists Dog Shit Decorate (I’m not sure what they were looking for with this one)
- Love Painting
The top five countries that visitors come from are the United States with 51% of the share, United Kingdom 9%, Australia 5%, Canada 3%, India 2.8% and 68 other countries taking the rest. Also, the average time a visitor spends on the site is 2 minutes and 18 seconds.
