Learning from Stats

Looking at my stats I found the following.

  • Hits go up from Monday to Wednesday. Then goes down towards the weekend.
  • Weekdays visitors come first thing in the morning or after lunch around 2pm
  • There are less hits in the weekend, but visitors stay longer and read more posts.

So most visitors drop by for a quick check on weekdays starting on Monday. They probably check on Kottu and just pop into a few posts they like and go back.

This means my current tendency for short regular posts during weekdays work well. Visitors don’t have time to stick around for a long read anyway.

Its a good idea to write longer and in-depth content during the weekend.
