This evening I learned of the existence of Avinash Kaushik. He's a super-successful blogger. He's had a blog for only 15 months, yet it gets 39,000 visits a month, he's already published a book based on the blog, and now he's doing paid public appearances to talk about the book.
Must be a really gripping subject he's discussing, right? Well, it is 'web analytics' and that basically means measuring the traffic on your website.
You might think that considering the number of clicks on your website or blog, and making graphs and statistics out of them is a bit boring, and Avinash might agree. He's insistent that if a website or blog is going to hold any lasting value, it has to know what purpose it serves for its visitors. It has to know why people visit, and if they got what they wanted - so better ask them.
So, here is my question to you, right now. Why are you here? What brought you to Beelzebub Knits today, and did you get what you came for?
A prize ball of yummy sock yarn goes to the writer of the comment that will most help improve BK.
The blog of Avinash Kaushik is here.
