Virtual School Meanderings

Statistics for June 2015

This entry is being posted back-dated.

In what has become the norm… A quick, back-dated statistics entry for this month… This past month there were 2,876  visits to this blog from 2,110 unique visitors, which is down about 150 visits and about 100 visitors since May.  Unfortunately the new statistics page that WordPress.com now provides only goes back 11 months, so I can’t tell you how this compared to this month last year.

As I mentioned last month, the new statistics page that WordPress.com now provides doesn’t allow you to copy and paste, so I can’t copy and paste the top ten entries, the top referrers, or the top search terms. #Wordpress #fail #Wordpressfail

This month I have attempted to capture some of the data that I used to be able to copy and paste by taking screen shots of the information.  So, the 15 most popular posts on my entry this past month.

Statistics for May 2015

This entry is being posted back-dated.

In what has become the norm… A quick, back-dated statistics entry for this month… This past month there were 3,055  visits to this blog from 2,228 unique visitors (note that WordPress has added a new level of data) – which is down about 250 visits and about 100 visitors since April.  Unfortunately the new statistics page that WordPress.com now provides only goes back 11 months, so I can’t tell you how this compared to this month last year.

Also, the new statistics page that WordPress.com now provides doesn’t allow you to copy and paste, so I can’t copy and paste the top ten entries, the top referrers, or the top search terms. #Wordpress #fail

So this is a VERY quick statistics entry thanks to the #Wordpressfail

February 28, 2015

Statistics for February 2015

This entry is being posted back-dated.

In what has become the norm… A quick, back-dated statistics entry for this month… This past month there were 3.392 visits to this blog from 2,478 unique visitors (note that WordPress has added a new level of data) – which is down about 1,500 visits and 700 visitors since December, but is actually up by about 200 or so visits and 300 or so visitors compared to February 2014.

The top ten entries this past month were:

  1. Questions About The School Of Tomorrow
  2. Student Holiday Notice
  3. Instructional Technology Dissertation Topics
  4. We Missed You at Last Week’s Webinar
  5. Early Bird Special – May 2013
  6. Guest Blogger: Examining Accelerated Christian Education
  7. Greatest Benefits Of K-12 Online Learning And Visible Learning
  8. Review – Frog Dissection
  9. The History Of K-12 Online Education???
  10. Dissertation Research Ideas?

What is interesting to note is that not a single one of those entries were posted this month.  To find the first popular February 2015 entry it would be in the number 12 position with Tribune Opinion: Struggling Online School Model Raises Serious Questions, followed by the number 13 position with Reviewers Needed, the number 14 position with Recent Post #OnTheFly: Michigan’s K-12 Virtual Learning Effectiveness Report, and the number 15 position with Becoming Tech-Savvy And Fearless.

In terms of visitors, the ten most popular countries from where folks viewed my blog are:

  • United States 2,632
  • Canada 216
  • Philippines 100
  • India 87
  • United Kingdom 76
  • Russia 50
  • Germany 41
  • Australia 39
  • France 33
  • New Zealand 26

So while I may be out of step with the dominant (i.e., neo-liberal) paradigm in the United States, it is nice to see that at least some Americans still find this blog useful.  It is also nice to see Canada and New Zealand in the top ten, as that is where a lot of my own research has focused.

As you can see, search engines continue to be the top driver of traffic to the blog (by a long shot).

It is also nice to see the places that I post my entries (i.e., Twitter, Facebook, and Google+) actually scoring well.  While Twitter posts automatically each time I post an entry (so does LinkedIn), I have to copy and paste the items to Facebook, Google+, and Plurk.

In terms of what people are searching for, during the month of February the top ten searches that drove traffic to this blog were:

  • ace school of tomorrow criticisms
  • early bird
  • reading for college success flvs answers
  • todaysmeet.com/beisel
  • notice for holiday in school
  • thormann, j. t., & fidalgo, p. p. (2014). guidelines for online course moderation and community building from a student’s perspective. journal of online learning & teaching, 10(3), 374-388.
  • ncaa rules on e2020 online courses
  • do learners really know best? urban legends in education
  • why start a virtual school presentations
  • posters for virtual placement

I suspect that many of these people were disappointed to land on my blog…  :)
