I thought I would share some more numbers with you.
These were the numbers from the previous update, about a month ago:
The traffic report for the week of June 26 stated that I had 67 visits and 105 page views that week. An average visit lasted 1 minute 24 seconds.
For the week ending July 3, which includes the first two days of posting the novel, I had 118 visits and 269 page views. An average visit lasted 3 minutes 49 seconds.
This last week (ending July 31), I had 116 visits and 273 page views. An average visit lasted 2 minutes 20 seconds.
I still am not sure what visit vs. view means, please leave a comment if you do! I think a view means they didn't surf around, just looked at one page. Visit makes me think they hung out for a bit, visited a few other things on the site than what originally brought them by.
I had a slight rise in traffic the week I offered a contest for a gift card, with 153 visits/310 views. But it didn't make a huge difference in numbers.
The good news is the numbers are keeping pretty steady. The more exciting thing is that I'm getting visitors from all over the world. I've had readers in the U.S and Canada, but also places like Egypt, Bahrain, Nepal, the Philippines, the U.K, France, South Africa, and Australia. It seems the only continent I haven't hit yet is South America!
Thanks so much to everyone who stops by! Be sure to leave your name and links in the comments section so I (and my fellow readers) can follow you too!
