For Finextra's free daily newsletter, breaking news and flashes and weekly job board.
Got a message that I have now written 228 blogs - with 532.835 page views. On average 2.336 each - highest being 8.305 and lowest 897.
166 posts (73% of all) have been viewed over 2.000 and 38 over 3.000.
What is interesting is that old posts are still being red on a rather steady pace - so that 25% in the 2.000+ cathegory were written in 2009 and 52% in 2010. Results from 2011 are generally very encouraging - 22% already in the 2000+ cathegory.
Thank you for reading.
Fantastic effort - Keep up the great writings!
Thank you John.
@BoH: Wow, that's great! Over how many years has this happened?
Thank you Ketharam. I started - some soon 3 years ago - still all reasons to be pleased.
Good work. I would point out that it is also not audience size, but the quality of the audience & their influence. Finextra is a winner there.
I'm proud to see over 600k reads in my own blog stats.
Just to give you a little perspective, one of my tweets the other day reached +150K readers & another 180K. Consequently it would seem, social networking was solely responsible for a site I launched earlier in the year without fanfare or promotion quietly
accumulating hits until we made an 'announcement'. Subsequently we had over 1 million hits between Oct1st & Nov 26.
It is important to actually deliver good content like Finextra does and make no mistake, social media can certainly get eyes on pages (& bums in squares, & Presidential candidates on the phone;)
Thank you Dean. I have a long way to go to reach your reach with the tweets. I agree on the audience - and also have the pleasure of meeting people at conferences based on the posts.
The power of social media is immense. So soon we can phps say - if it does not fly on Facebook first - it will not break through elsewhere...
Hi Bo, I'm not too sure about the fb reference being so important. One example I know closely has twitter & fb. The fb is an afterthought. A google search returns 284,000,000 results for the brand name, 3 months from launch. By comparison Barack Obama gets
only 259,000,000. Data suggests it was not driven by fb.
The 'sub-brand', which has been the focus of the 3 month campaign, returns 896,000,000 results. These are 'brand names' which had to all intents never been heard of prior.
Winning with social media?
The FB reference is more related to launching netservices - like election aids and new e-commerce solutions meant for global markets.
