WordPress statistics, as I have written about several times, are a weird thing. Unpredictable as hell. However for almost the entire time I’ve been daily blogging, one thing was almost a given. The number of views was pretty much double the number of visitors. I always saw this as a good sign: if visitors liked one post, several probably read another post or two. I’m not sure what I’m doing different, or wrong for that matter, as for a couple of weeks now not only did my visitor number decline, also the ratio of views to visitors went down drastically. It’s going to be my worst month in terms of views and visitors, ever… I’m not sure what to think of it. Is it because of summer? Last June was one of my busiest months… Can’t be it. Is my writing that much worse? I’m sometimes wondering whether it’s because I used to write more long rants about things. Some readers have told me in the comments before that they liked my rants. Maybe I’ve written off my rantiness. Maybe I’ve mellowed? I may have gotten boring. I rant less, yet I feel more angry. It may also be because I use fewer pictures lately… Should I include more pictures?
Fellow bloggers, have you ever noticed temporal differences in view to visitor ratios before? What did you do to boost them?
