July PR In-sights | Google Analytics + MyBlogLog

California and Illinois tied for top state with the most readers.

That’s one of my more interesting findings from July’s end of month statistics.

In June, I reported on the most read posts. This month, I decided to build in Google Analytics, a free service you can sign up for to track your web and blog traffic, and MyBlogLog, another free service that combines social media and traffic metrics.

Google Analytics

Where Readers Came From


Top States: California, Illinois, New York, Texas, Florida – now I know where I should do seminars 🙂

New Visits: 86.48%, need to do a better job on conversion

Search Engines: 96% Google, all others are insignificant from my blog’s perspective
