January 4, 2010


Welcome to 2010. Let's start the year by looking at what you read in 2009. We'll compare with 2008 to see trends.

Overall visits increased by 50.2% and 78.1% of visitors were new. The average length of a visit grew by 19.7% and encompassed 1.6 pages.

Visitors arrived from 91 countries but primarily Canada, the United States (tied) and the United Kingdom. Canadians read 0.47 more pages and stayed for an extra 1:35 minutes, compared with Americans.

The Top 10 Posts
Here's what you read
Canadian visitors came from 123 cities ranging from Whitehorse to St. John's. Most of you are in Ontario. Here are the top cities:
  1. Toronto
  2. Ottawa (was #4)
  3. Vancouver
  4. Calgary
  5. Ottawa
American visitors again came primarily from California (San Francisco), New York (NYC) and Texas (Houston).

The top three posts of 2009 were also in the top five for 2008. They continue to attract readers for free. Conventional interruption advertising ongoing costs and questionable benefits. Putting content online for search engines to find, gives you ongoing benefits. Isn't that a great one-time investment?
