Chart Showing Growth In Monthly Website Stats

We broke all records again during November, with huge month-on-month increases.

Visitor numbers were up by 37.3% and the average pages viewed (per visitor) was up by 19.7%, which, coupled together, led to a 64.1% increase in the total number of pages viewed.

The average time spent on the site, by each visitor, was up by 32%.

In total, we had almost 4,500 visitors who viewed over 13,500 pages during the month of November 2013.

The numbers appear to be growing with the help of two things; (1) we have risen in the Google organic search rankings, and (2) we are getting impressive numbers of people sharing articles across the social networks.

Facebook accounted for 27.6% of visitors (1,239), but Google was again the largest source of traffic to in November, accounting for 45.4% of all visitors (2,036), with it’s numbers nearly doubling month-on-month.

Our return visitors also almost doubled during the month too, showing more people are returning, and more regularly aswell.

We are also starting to notice some traffic via citations on other sites, and in the alternative media too, but it is certainly the sheer amount of local people sharing articles via social networks that is driving the surge of traffic, and indirectly alongside our SEO work, that is also helping to push us up in Google’s rankings too!

Which Major Irish
Entities Have Been Logging Onto During November?

New Feature: Each month we will highlight a different interesting aspect relating to the data we have about our visitors, sourced via Google Analytics, the most widely-used website analytics service. The info is pretty broad, with no personal data included, but you can spot interesting trends within the statistics provided, if you look hard enough. This month we found a very interesting list!

Google Analytics tells you which network a visitor logs on from. In most cases the network is a persons broadband provider, but major businesses and organisations often have their own networks, therefore you are able to see if people log on from inside many large entities. So we went through the list of networks that had accessed (1st-30th November 2013) and pulled out any identifiable networks. It really is an incredible list!
