My oldest blog is about 2.5 years old now, long enough for statistical trends to emerge. Low traffic, but it's interesting to see what's top of the charts.
Litrefs gets about 20 hits/day. The most popular pages have been
- Poetry Punctuation (547 hits)
- poetry pamphlet publication in the UK (357 hits)
- Comments about poetry publishing (154 hits)
Fair enough - punctuation and publication will always be of interest to writers.
Litrefs Articles gets about 40 hits/day. The most popular pages have been
"Metaphor and Simile" gets many Google hits in bursts. I suspect it's found by pupils doing assignments.
Litrefs Reviews gets about 20 hits/day. The most popular pages have been
- Stuart: A life backwards (236 hits)
- The Best British Poetry 2011 (125 hits)
- Poetry Writing: The expert guide (112 hits)
The first and third are by authors who've been in the news recently (Masters for a new book and Sampson because of the Poetry Society). I suspect that those pages are picked up in random Google searches. Certain reviews seem to attract short-lived attention on the grapevine - BBP2011 was one of them.
Meanwhile, my Literary Quotes web page attracts about 40 hits/day. I'm surprised it's that low - review/article writers should find it useful.
