Yellow Dog Patrol is 4 Years Old

The blog you're reading is now four years old.  And what an interesting past year it has been.  Here are some highlights via my analytics:

  • The site was visited by 10,500 people in the past 12 months
  • 2/3 of the site's traffic had never visited the site before
  • That being said, over 2,000 of the site's visitors this past year had been to the site at least 50 times, and over 1,000 had visited over 200 times.  I'm humbled by this loyalty.
  • While nearly all of the traffic was from the United States, over 1,000 people from outside the US visited.  The most obscure nations that visited were Malta, Iraq, Eritra (I had to look that one up!), and tiny Luxembourg.  
  • About 10% of the site's traffic came in via some kind of mobile device.
  • Search drives a majority of the traffic, with a huge majority coming from Google
  • Facebook is my largest referring site.  For those of you that picked up an article and shared it to your Facebook community, thank you!
  • Top pages that drove traffic this past year (beyond the home page) are:
This all started out as a place for me to vent, and to test some SEO techniques for my job.  It has ended up as a small community, and for that I am amazed and grateful.

Thanks for coming to and indulging me.  I appreciate your readership very much.
