Virtual School Meanderings

Statistics for June 2016

This entry is being posted back-dated.

As my EDTECH537 – Blogging In The Classroom is currently underway, I try to post a little more detailed statistics entry (at least compared to the normal quick monthly update)

Over the past month there were 3,114 hits to this blog from 1,980 different visitors, compared to 3,775 hits from 2,074 visitors in May (and 2,876 hits in June 2015).

The top ten entries for the past month were:

  1. Questions About The School Of Tomorrow
  2. We Missed You at Last Week’s Webinar
  3. Special Offer For Your Family From K12
  4. Student Holiday Notice
  5. AERA 2012 – Affective and Motivational Factors of Learning in Online Mathematics
  6. The History Of K-12 Online Education???
  7. Virtual Schooling In The News
  8. Guest Blogger: Examining Accelerated Christian Education
  9. More On K-12 Online Learning In Canada
  10. Review – Frog Dissection

Interestingly, only the “Virtual School in the News” entry was from the past month (and the only one from 2016 to be honest).

If you look at how folks found my blog, you get this picture:

  1. Search Engines
    • Google Search
    • Bing
    • Yahoo Search
    • Google Image Search
    • Ask.com
    • AOL
    • myway.com
    • Google Mobile
    • duckduckgo.com
    • Baidu
    • dogpile.com
  2. Twitter
  3. Facebook
  4. fix-website-errors.com/try.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fvirtualschooling.wordpress.com
  5. WordPress.com Reader
  6. free-video-tool.com
  7. com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox
  8. michaelbarbour.com
  9. pinterest.com
  10. scoop.it

A couple of observations…  Search engines account for approximately 15x the traffic of any other source, and Google represents 95% of all of my search engine traffic).  All of my blog entries are posted to my Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn accounts, so it makes sense that Twitter and Facebook would be near the top of that referrer list (n.b., Google+ and LinkedIn would have been 18 and 19 had I continued that list to 20, instead of stopping at 10).  Finally, this past year – as a part of Darren Cannell’s Increase Your Digital Clout activity I created accounts on Pinterest and Scoop as a way to generate more activity to this blog.

As search engines make up such a large part of my traffic, it is interesting to see the most popular search terms used:

  1. motivational and affective factors
  2. lrn regestered
  3. how to write holiday notice in school
  4. how to write a holiday note for school
  5. ace homeschool graduates
  6. edeneden2016@gmail.com
  7. charter, alternative, virtual schools account for most low-grad-rate schools, study finds
  8. school notice for holiday
  9. school notice on holiday
  10. pictures of online learning
  11. school holiday notice sample
  12. technology counts 2016
  13. permission to use survey instrument
  14. esn webinars
  15. dissertation topivs k 12
  16. school holiday notice
  17. promo code for keystone school
  18. virtual learning apps
  19. school of tomorrow philippines
  20. online vs brick and mortar schools

Another interesting observation is the fact that the vast majority of these search terms have nothing to do with K-12 distance, online and blended learning.

Finally, as most folks know I originally blogged using Blogger – before switching to WordPress.  I have left the old blog site active, as the final entry drives traffic to the current blog.  Each month I still receive the statistics from that old blog site (and it still generates some traffic)…

Statistics for May 2016

This entry is being posted back-dated.

Over the past month there were 3,775 hits to this blog from 2,074 different visitors (compared to 3,371 hits from 2,179 visitors in April).

Can’t seem to access the old statistics page, so I can’t copy and paste (and I can only get data from the past 10 months).  This means not a lot to report this month.

Statistics for March 2016

This entry is being posted back-dated.

I didn’t get around to completing this entry on time, so the past 30 days of data won’t tell me much.  I can say that there were 3,477 hits to this blog from 2,183 individual visitors.

Statistics for February 2016

This entry is being posted back-dated.

So I didn’t get around to posting this around the end of the month, which means I don’t have the ability to see the statistics from the past month (i.e., 30 days) from the WordPress site. I can say that there were 3,047 hits to this blog from 1,969 visitors.  This is up a couple of hundred since January 2016, when there were 2,861 visits to this blog from 1.911 unique visitors (so that is also up about 50 people).

Beyond that, I can’t get much in the way of data since I waited so long again.

So that’s about all for this month, except the statistics from my old blog site.
