Virtual School Meanderings

Statistics for July 2017

This entry is being posted back-dated.

Generally speaking I try to post a more detailed entry while my EDTECH537 – Blogging In The Classroom is running, but this year the end of the month just got away from me between travelling and work.  So, unfortunately – once again – a relatively quick entry this month…

This month there were 5,056 hits from 2,460 different visitors.  This was up by about 800 hits and 600 visitors from June, but up about 1500 hits and 500 visitors from July 2016.

The top ten entries over the past 30 days (keeping in mind I’m drafting this message 10 days into August) include:

  1. Student Holiday Notice
  2. We Missed You at Last Week’s Webinar
  3. EDTECH537 – Potential Hazards Of Blogging
  4. Questions About The School Of Tomorrow
  5. Special Offer For Your Family From K12
  6. EDTECH537 – Guest Blog Entry: Civil Rights and Online Learning
  7. Instructional Technology Dissertation Topics
  8. EDTECH537 – Examining Generational Differences
  9. 101 Recently Uploaded Papers Mention The Name Michael Barbour
  10. FLVS And Web 2.0

Interestingly, although not surprising, three of these 10 entries are related to my EDTECH537 course (and one of them – the Questions About The School of Tomorrow entry – was referenced in one of those EDTECH537 items). Oddly, the top two items were from 2011, but when you look at the search terms that brought people here, it does make a little sense.

  1. notice for holiday to students
  2. school holiday notice sample
  3. academia we found your name
  4. educational technology thesis topics
  5. notice for holiday in school
  6. notice for school holiday
  7. academia, 251 kearny st., suite 520, san francisco, ca, 94108
  8. a review of open access literature
  9. teanau tuiono
  10. 19 papers academia.edu mention the name marko jaglicic

As with most months, search engines brought in the vast majority of traffic.  For example, in the past 30 days search engines accounted for 1,214 visits.  The next closest referrers were Facebook (i.e., 71 visits), WordPress Reader (i.e., 71 visits), and Twitter (i.e., 50 visits).  So what people search for generally does drive what my top entries are – and it is also important to notice that the search terms have little to do with K-12 distance, online, and/or blended learning.

Anyway, I traditionally end these monthly entries with the statistics from my old blog site (which still does generate some traffic)…

Since so much traffic was generated by search engines, here are the top search terms.

  • write a notice on declaring a holiday
  • notice for holiday in school
  • notice of holuday the student
  • appup plus sup
  • holiday notice for school students
  • sample of individual education program for student with reading disability

With the exception of those searching for the School of Tomorrow and the ACE curriculum, the rest were probably disappointed.

Statistics for February 2017

This entry is being posted back-dated.

It seems I didn’t post a statistics entry for January 2017.  So in December 2016 there were 4,150 hits to this blog from 1,937 different visitors.  In January 2017 there were 7,448 hits to this blog from 4,952 different visitors.  This was a significant increase from previous months – as all 2016 I was averaging between 3,000 to 5,000 hits each month.

In February 2017 it was back down to normal, with 4,633 hits from 2,543 different visitors.

I’m still not able to access the old statistics page, so it is difficult to pull out the normal individual statistics that I often post.
