The expected stats for a newbie’s blog seems to be a mystery. I’ve done some research on stats for a new blog, but so far only found one newbie blog, where the author listed their stats.

I’m curious, are my new blog stats inline with other new blogs? Am I on the right path, or do I need to change my strategy? I started blogging on March 29, 2007.

With that being said, here’s what I’m showing for totals for my first 90 days via Awstats and Webalizer. My Webalizer numbers are higher, however, Awstats has a separate column for ” not viewed traffic includes traffic generated by robots, worms, or replies with special HTTP status codes.”

So, here’s mine: Note, I have not disabled my own IP address, as the process is still “Greek” to me.

Awstats :

Unique Visitors = 646
No. of Visits = 2871
Pages = 15587
Hits = 25504

Webalizer:

Sites = 1390
Visits = 5577
Pages = 12559
Files = 24206
Hits = 34092

Then, there’s the Google earnings. I’m can’t quit my day job yet.

Google Adsense = Less than $6.00

Both Awstats and Webalizer are free statistical reporting tools. You can get more information by going to either Awstats or Webalizer. Webalizer has a great FAQ section that answers a lot of questions about visitors, pages and hits.

With regard to Google Analytics, I don’t have three months of stats for that yet, so won’t include those numbers.

If you’ve found ways to generate traffic to your site and would like to share it with others, please include that in your comment.

What I’ve done is: created meta tags, use keyword density, post often, Digg my articles, joined a carnival, created outgoing and deep links, and when time permits, I visit other blogs and may leave a comment. (You can read more on these subjects in my “Articles” section.)

Alright, I’ve showed you mine. Leave me a comment, and show me yours. I’m trying to create a central location where newbie bloggers can come, to see what other newbies are doing, and learn from each other. (This can be another way for me to generate more traffic to my site, however, if you have an idea of how to get others to come to your site too, please include that in your comment-I’ll definitely come and visit you)

See you in blogosphere!

    Well, mine is a bit younger than yours

    These stats are from SiteMeter

    VISITS

    Total 567
    Average Per Day 50
    Average Visit Length 4:11
    Last Hour 1
    Today 8
    This Week 347

    PAGE VIEWS

    Total 1,085
    Average Per Day 98
    Average Per Visit 2.0
    Last Hour 1

    And from Urchin
    634 Visits
    2.65 Pages/Visit
    59.15% Bounce Rate 1,678 Pageviews
    00:04:28 Avg. Time on Site
    78.23% % New Visits

    Posting to Digg will be useless unless you have a decent network of friends there. Otherwise, you have NO chances of getting any decent traffic from there.

    Hmm. I have to wonder if I’m sabotaging myself.

    I’m using AWstats. I started my blog in February and I got:

    Unique Visitors
    Apr 2007 — 70
    May 2007 — 75
    Jun 2007 — 131

    425 unique visitors since Feb 11 when I started.

    Time to ramp up prolificness!

    Kekoa,

    Thanks for sharing your stats.

    Don’t get hung up on the numbers, but watch your growth pattern. If you look at your monthly numbers, you percentage of increase in unique visitors is great.. You nearly doubled in unique visitors from May to June.

    Remember the rule of exponential growth.

    Thanks, Barbara.

    Very true. Exponential growth is how it works.
