One of the interesting things about having a website or blog is that it is easy to see how many people are clicking on your site and reading your stuff.
Google Analytics is an easy (and free) program that lets me see how many people visit Cruise Law News, how long they stay and how many pages they look at. It interesting to see where the readers are based and what page they look at.
The analytics program has been around for years.
For the first four months of this year, 392,335 unique visitors have made 470,053 visits and looked at 1,385,586 pages. The Costa Concordia disaster brought in a number of new readers.
All types of statistics are available. One of the more interesting statistics is how many people are reading Cruise Law News blog on a regular basis as opposed to randomly appearing from search engine results and quickly leaving.
22,904 people have read the blog 9 or more times in the last four months. So I have a small town of people who are reading it over 2 times a month.
The most interesting statistic is that 2,296 people have each read Cruise Law News over 200 times since the beginning of the year. That's more than once a day for the past four month. Many leave comments or call or email me with tips for stories.
I'd like to think that Cruise Law News is providing information and a perspective that you can't anywhere else. Maybe, maybe not. Our motto is "everything the cruise lines don't want you to know . . . "
If you are a daily reader, take a moment and leave a comment about what you like (and dislike) about the blog. Are there topics about the cruise industry which I am overlooking? Are there regular readers who would like to write a guest blog?
