    Ah, analytics, yes, I used them when I first started blogging and hung on to their every little detail, then I realised there’s more to blogging than analytics so now I never look at them, I just do what I do, have a great rank anyway and have loads of time to smell the roses.

    Enjoy the journey!

      Analytics are needed for some things Mandy, but they are really only a guide. If you’re happy with what you have, then there is nothing to worry about.

    Traffic – Ah my favourite subject Barrie! Well, Some people just send any kind of links and traffic they can .. We both know this approach has maybe a 0.5% conversion rate… I have experimented over the years and what I have found is the better quality your source.. the more niche they are… the more in tune they are with your product or service then the better the conversion. One particular person I know who engages his audience nearly every single day has over a 75% opt in to anything he does… This is a great thing for building relationships with subscribers and yes this is part of the traffic equation. This will turn your subscribers into buyers.

    Hi Barrie,
    Important point about “message to market match” Something Gavin talks about. So important to be congruent so as not to confuse.. good discussion

    Understanding your conversion rates is all about understanding how how your site works, I do agree. Good article.

    Analytics, well just not my thing. But it surely does work for those who use them. I say persistence and have fun. Fun is infectious. Lol

      Analytics are great for those who need them. If you don’t that’s ok too Paula 😀
